  1. Hey Survivors, For an upcoming version of the ARK Digest, we thought it would be good to see if the community had any questions about Aberration that we haven't answered yet. Obviously, we won't be answering everything, that would ruin the surprise ! And of course, the regular digest rule applies regarding ETAs . However, if you have more than 3 questions, feel free to ask them, as this is a more specific topic area, we'll take as many as you want to give. Looking forward to the questions... or theories!
  2. Hey Survivors! Just wanted to pick your brains, what kind of creatures would you like to see make its home on the ARK? We usually get a lot of messages across all platforms asking us to add XYZ - just thought I'd make a quick mega-thread to see what you guys are thinking :). Feel free to include names, images, cool-facts -- what you think they could do on the ARK, anything really! Looking forward to seeing what you have to share.
  3. Hello Survivors! Studio Wildcard is proud to announce ARK’s second expansion pack, “Aberration”! Launching in October 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam, in “ARK: Aberration” Survivors will find themselves waking up on a derelict, malfunctioning ARK with an elaborate underground biome system, where they will face exotic new challenges unlike anything before: extreme radioactive sunlight and environmental hazards, ziplines, wingsuits, climbing gear, cave dwellings, charge-batteries, and far more, along with a stable of extraordinary new creatures await within the mysterious depths. But beware the ‘Nameless’: unrelenting, Element-infused humanoids which have evolved into vicious light-hating monstrosities! You’ll uncover the ultimate secrets of the ARKs, and discover what the future holds in store for those strong and clever enough to survive! AN ARK GONE AWRY Aberration places survivors on a damaged ARK: its internal atmosphere has leaked away, resulting in a harsh surface with intense radiation, and a plethora of lush biomes underground. With the maintenance systems of this ARK malfunctioning, the many hazards, creatures, and nature of the environment present a thrilling new world to explore and master. TAME NEW CREATURES The intense radiation of Aberration has led to incredible genetic mutations, resulting in new creatures with amazing abilities! Among others, clamber up walls & glide through the air on the back of a camouflaging chameleon-like ‘Rock Drake’, keep the dark at bay with a friendly ‘Lantern Pug’, grab and toss multiple creatures simultaneously with a massive ‘Cave Crustacean’, or -- if you are talented enough to tame one -- command the vile ‘Nameless Queen’ to impregnate your foes with a horrifying reproductive chest-burster! CRAFT OVER 50 NEW ITEMS New tools are on-hand to survive on the world of Aberration, while opening up many possibilities for new competitive and cooperative scenarios. Traverse the ARK using cave-climbing picks, gliding wingsuits, and ziplines. Learn advanced engrams to dominate the harsh environment, protect yourself with hazmat outfits, charge lanterns, explosive rounds, batteries, glowsticks, railguns and much more. Thrive by gathering new resources, using fishing baskets, gas collectors, fortify your home within the caverns using cliff structures, and much more! CONQUER NEW CHALLENGES Earthquakes, radiation exposure, gas leaks, and Element chambers are among the many hazards that survivors will learn to grapple with Aberration’s varied biomes, both aboveground and below the surface. But among the greatest challenges on this ruined ARK is the hierarchy of unrelenting Nameless, requiring constant vigilance & Charge Energy to defend against! And in the deepest depths of Aberration, their terrifying -- yet somehow familiar -- master awaits… will YOU be among the survivors powerful enough to face him? Season Pass Aberration will be available as a standalone expansion pack ($19.99) and as part of the ARK Season Pass (or the ARK: Explorers Edition). Owners of ARK Season Pass / Explorers Edition will get exclusive in-game Aberration-themed cosmetic item skins, immediately on Steam and in the coming days on Xbox One and PlayStation 4! The Aberration Helmet, formed from the damaged ARK's obsidian-like underground rock, creates an imposing presence for Survivors who wear it. The Aberration Sword, forged from the Element Crystals that run within the deepest chambers of the ARK, emits a subtle glow to strike fear into your enemies. PAX West!

  4. Interesting, it's configured right on our box, as well as showing up on our backend, but there is something going on with it. We're looking into it now and hopefully will have it resolved soon, the box may be faulty.
  5. They should have these additional servers/maps now.
  6. Hey Survivors, You can now download the save files of the Legacy servers which were repurposed on PC from here: https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/deprecated-official-pc-server-backups/ This directory should contain each server that we took down, the save file is from the day we announced that we would be repurposing the servers. In the event that more servers are taken down in the future, we will also make those save files available. At this time, we will not be providing the save files for any current server which is online.
  7. Interesting, so you've been seeing this crash prior to the latest updates that have occurred. Makes me wonder more if it's temp related and our latest changes/size of Rag is just pushing cards more so than before, therefore having these crashes more frequently. Do you guys do regular maintenance on your PCs, clearing out the dust, making sure the fans are solid, etc?
  8. Sweet, thanks. Let's see if we can figure this out! I've just sent you an email.
  9. Thanks for the quick responses guys, unfortunately, that was using the latest fix from Unreal. We're still looking into it, to see if it's a new timing, or the fact that we're pushing GPUs harder in our latest rendering update. Question, has anyone else had success when rolling back drivers?
  10. Great, let me know about the PC and if it repros there, it will be a lot easier to diagnose. No problem, the info is appreciated. If you have access to a computer that can run the game, I can get you in touch with someone on Nitrado's networking side, and we can get the game running to see if there's a connection issue.
  11. When you say you can offer me this, do you mean you have access to a computer? Yes, we've spoken about that. If you're able to reproduce this issue with your LTE Hotspot on our PC, it will help us when diagnosing this problem.
  12. A long shot, but is anyone here who is suffering connection issues from Germany and using a Fritz!Box modem? Getting data for this specific issue is hard as it's through the PS4, but that router comes with some diagnostic capabilities which would help on our end. Out of curiosity, do any of you have a PC and have you tried connecting to our Officials there? If you're having a similar problem, we would certainly be able to diagnose the issue much quicker.
  13. This was related to something else, but will happen once a week when we force a respawn on our servers (there's a lot junk data which it'll have to clear out, and that can take a while before allowing people back on). As for this connection issue, we're still looking into it. Once we have an update, will keep you posted.
  14. Hey, Survivors! As we enter the final hours before launch, we just wanted to get some vital information out to you! Day One Patch! The Day One patch will be set live across all platforms at approximately 8-9AM EST and should show up on all consoles within the hour. This update will include Ragnarok for console, as well as the End Boss content accessed through the Tek Cave for all platforms. The update size for console will be approximately 26gb for Xbox. We do not have a number for PS4 yet, but PS4 patches are usually smaller in size due to the different method patches are submitted. New ARK Servers! The Official Server Network for PC will be going offline at 2 AM EST, and The Official Server Network for Consoles will be offline at Midnight EST. There will be at least an 8-hour blackout across all platforms where no Officials are online. After this blackout period, we will launch the new Official Servers, as well as the remaining Legacy servers. Over the course of the 24-hours following this, more servers will come online. For ARKs launch, we plan on providing new Official Servers for the following games mode: Regular/Vanilla, Non-TEK, Primitive+, Hardcore, Isolated Clusters, NoTaming, Extinction Servers and ORP. With the bulk of the servers being focused on the vanilla game mode (Both PVP and PVE), and smaller amounts of niche servers which could be increased based on player demand. The primitive game mode will be removed in favour of the Non-TEK Tier Servers. PC Asian/China Servers! The current Isolated PC PvP Asian Servers we have on our Official Network is hosted and provided by Snail Games. They have decided that with the launch, they will be taking down their legacy PvP Servers and relaunching them as part of the new Official Network. These servers will be included in our CrossARK Cluster, and therefore will be transferable to and from as opposed to being an isolated region. ARK Legacy Save Files! Later this week, we will have both our PS4 and PC Legacy Save Files available to use. PS4 is expected to be here sometime tomorrow and will be accessible via hosting with Nitrado. Due to sensitive information contained in the save files, it is required to be accessed and hosted through a licensed third-party. Xbox saves will become available when rentable servers are available in September. It's going to be an exciting 24 hours! We hope you enjoy all the new content; we're super stoked to be launching Ragnarok on console and best of luck in the claim for land on the new servers! View full article
  15. Which server are you currently playing on? We can check it out to see if there's something funky going on in the back end. There have been a lot of comments about duping lately, but we haven't found that to be the case on our end. We are looking into all the reports made, a few server crashes have reproduced, and have been resolved (but simply crashing a server won't dupe an item on Officials).
  16. Leeds have broken the sea 100%

    Perhaps, but doesn't hurt to talk about though people will exaggerate about everything! The game wasn't designed around no-taming servers, so there are going to be some things that don't quite work or are immensely different.
  17. Leeds have broken the sea 100%

    I don't think we'd be inclined to remove it entirely, but perhaps we can reduce the # that exist, or make some tweaks. I'll mention it to the team as a concern and we'll see how it goes. Thanks for the feedback guys!
  18. Sorry about that, we'll have it fixed for the next update on both platforms. This is something I believe we're still working out with Microsoft, should know an answer within the 7-10 days I imagine. I will let you know as soon as I do.
  19. This is solved now so I'm going to be locking the thread. That problem shouldn't occur going forward, sorry if we made ya panic!
  20. Leeds have broken the sea 100%

    Perhaps I'm missing something glaringly obvious, but why is it impossible to make a Motorboat on no-tame servers?
  21. I don't have a general ETA for when this will happen precisely, but when I do/or when it does happen, I'll let you guys know (though you'll notice it with the server being much more stable). Keep in mind, our protection is just a form of mitigation. We're not able to prevent it completely, no one can, but we'll do what we're able to, to prevent it from offlining servers or making them unplayable.
  22. Are there any players still experiencing this on official? Seem like the number have reports have gone down drastically on our end. If so, get in touch and we can figure it out.
  23. Phoenix are STILL BUGGED

    Can you guys tell me which Official Server you're playing on?
  24. Thanks for the information everyone. I've passed on the relevant comments to our engineers, hopefully, it is what you're suggesting and we'll be able to get this sorted out ASAP.
  25. v261 grey water surface

    This is on our to-do list, we will be resolving this, as well as taking a look at the other Mac and Linux graphical issues. I don't have a timeline for it right now, it will be when an engineer is available, but we haven't forgotten, in addition to taking a look at working with Vulcan in the future. Thank you guys for being so patient, I understand how frustrating it is so we'll look at taking care of this as soon as possible
