    New Extinction Teasers!

    Happy Patch Day, Survivors! It's Tuesday and ARK's latest update is going live just as this announcement is being posted. In celebration of the patch today we're sharing what we have been working on: some brand new previews of our upcoming expansion pack ARK: Extinction. Check out the images below for a sneak peak at what you can expect to see on planet Earth! In Extinction, Earth has become an Element-infested planet filled with fantastical creatures both organic and technological. Element has ravaged the planet and corrupted both the landscape and some of its inhabitants, causing mutations in the creatures and plants that can be found there. We look forward to sharing more in the months ahead as we work towards our Extinction release! Our Extinction Chronicles III event is going on right now, including new Corrupted skin, Explorer Notes, and Tek dinos. You can read all about it in yesterdays Community Crunch announcement:

  3. Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! Extinction Chronicles III! Tomorrow there will be a client and server side update that will bring Extinction Chronicles III to survivors on PC, Xbox, and PS4! Leading up to the release of Extinction there will be monthly drops of Extinction-related Explorer Notes on The Island, Scorched Earth, and Aberration. Once collected these notes will unlock new Extinction-related skins! There will also be the appearance of more powerful Tek-themed Dinosaur variants within the ARKs each month. These Tek Dinos are permanent additions (meaning they will continue to spawn even after the event is over), with a new one beginning to appear each month. In Extinction Chronicles I we released three Explorer Notes, the Corrupted Helmet and the Tek Rex. In Extinction Chronicles II we released three Explorer Notes, the Corrupted Boots and the Tek Stego. And now, tomorrow we're excited to bring you three new Explorer Notes, the Corrupted Pants and a new Tek creature, the Tek Raptor! In addition, special colored dinos will be populating the ARKs. You'll be able to find creatures sporting red, black, white, and grey for the next month beginning tomorrow. Be sure to take advantage of these special colors before they're extinct! Patch Notes!

  5. Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! Extinction Chronicles III Next Week! On August 14th Extinction Chronicles III will be released on all platforms. As usual survivors can expect a new tek dino, new Explorer Notes, a new cosmetic, increased level cap, and special colored dinos on all ARKs! Developer Diaries! Today we'd like to bring you a new section of the Crunch called Developer Diaries. In this section we'll speak to some of the changes the ARK has gone through. This weeks diary entry is brought to you by Lead Programmer, Chris Willoughby, as he talks about the changes that were recently made to Scorched Earth. ARK Digest Making A Return! Survivors! It's been quite a while since we've done a question and answer session, but the ARK Digest will be making a come back! Our goal is to bring the Digest back about once a month with the first being on August 20th. If you have a question you want answered by the ARK dev team please submit your questions with the Subject "ARK Q&A" to our email address: [email protected] Community Livestream Round-Up! On August 2nd we had our fifth Community Livestream. Thank you to all of those who attended and participated! The community team had a lot of fun and we hope you did as well. If you weren't able to catch the stream you can watch the video-on-demand on our Twitch page or by clicking on the video below. For this weeks stream ZenRowe and I were joined by the developer of Genesis and some of the members of RPFirst and TwitchRP. Map developer Peoples Gaming gave us an expansive tour of what he has built in his cyberpunk adventure world. Ravage and Tess taught us all about RP and the history of ARK and roleplaying, and how RP is conducted on their Genesis server. We learned there is an uprising, a police cult that locks people in jail, and an orphanage of people selling potentially illegal substances! It was an exciting tour unlike any other. If you're interested in ARK roleplay definitely check out RPFirst and TwitchRP or start your own roleplaying server! We are accepting any type of ARK related fanart to be featured in the Showcase section of the stream and entries are always open. This can be drawings, videos, builds, ANSEL screenshots, handmade crafts, anything ARK related!

We hope to see you there Mod Community Updates! It's ZenRowe here with another modding tutorial for everyone! This one is a bit different in that it's also a bit of a warning about a particular feature that, if used incorrectly, can have some consequences that are difficult to get a handle on. On the other hand, these CDOs can be really handy for making some class information and functions globally accessible. Happy modding! ARK: Evolution Event+!

  9. Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! Special Colored Dinos Ending Tomorrow! Here's just a quick reminder that the week of purple, black, grey, and dark blue creatures on the ARKs ends tomorrow. Be sure to get your taming done while you still can! The colored dinos will stop spawning after a server redeployment tomorrow at 1pm EST. We've really enjoyed seeing all of your beautiful tames on Twitter so keep tweeting them to us! Screenshots by Mahnogard and swiftninjaz146 on Twitter. Mod Community Updates! I've gotten a really good number of tutorial requests this month for potential bounties! Thank you, everyone. I'll be choosing which ones get turned into bounties at the end of the month. Don't worry if your particular request doesn't make the cut this month, any requests that don't get made into bounties will remain on the request list. To that end please make sure that if you are interested in seeing tutorials for any of the requests that have been made, or if you still haven't added your own request, that you visit the bounty request form and submit it. I make the determination of which requests become bounties based on their demand. We also have a new mod tutorial ready for you today! We're looking at Blueprint interfaces and their magical properties. Seriously, these things are so useful to mod authors it's scary how overlooked they are. We're starting to get into some very useful, but possibly abstract, information. If you find you have any questions, please ask in the thread and I will do my best to fill in any gaps.

  12. Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! Extinction Chronicles II Tomorrow there will be a client and server side update that will bring Extinction Chronicles II to survivors on PC, Xbox, and PS4. Leading up to the release of Extinction there will be monthly drops of Extinction-related Explorer Notes on The Island, Scorched Earth, and Aberration. Once collected these notes will unlock new Extinction-related skins! There will also be the appearance of more powerful Tek-themed Dinosaur variants within the ARKs each month. These Tek Dinos are permanent additions (meaning they will continue to spawn even after the event is over), with a new one beginning to appear each month. In Extinction Chronicles I we released three Explorer Notes, the Corrupted Helmet and the Tek Rex. Tomorrow we're excited to bring you three new Explorer Notes, the Corrupted Boots and a new Tek creature, the Tek Stego! In addition, special colored dinos will be populating the ARKs. You'll be able to find creatures sporting purple, black, grey, and dark blue for the next week beginning tomorrow. Be sure to take advantage of these special colors before they're extinct! Patch Notes! Here are the full fixes and notes coming in tomorrows Extinction Chronicles update.
