    v286.104 Element Vein Fix

    We have just deployed v286.104 onto our official servers and unofficials may now also update. There is also a client-side update that single-player survivors should download. An unintended issue with Element Veins being enabled caused some bases near veins to be destroyed. We will not be doing a server-wide rollback as a rollback could cause even more players to lose their progress and characters. However, we will be introducing 3x harvest rates shortly onto official PC servers to allow players to reconstruct their bases as quickly as possible over the weekend. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
  2. Hello Survivors! Today, Studio Wildcard is proud to announce ARK’s third expansion pack, “Extinction”! AVAILABLE NOW! Steam on PC/Mac/Linux/SteamOS: https://store.steampowered.com/app/887380/ARK_Extinction__Expansion_Pack/ ARK: Extinction will be available for PlayStation®4 and Xbox One starting November 13th. Finish your journey through the worlds of ARK in ‘Extinction’, where the story began and ends: on Earth itself! An Element-infested, ravaged planet filled with fantastical creatures both organic & technological, Earth holds both the secrets of the past and the keys to its salvation. As a veteran Survivor who has conquered all previous obstacles, your ultimate challenge awaits: can you defeat the gigantic roaming Titans which dominate the planet, and complete the ARK cycle to save Earth's future? ARK: Extinction is an entirely new map that promises to deliver the long-awaited climax to the ARK storyline, returning to where the story began and now ends: on Earth itself! Visit the ruined world that’s rampant with Element-corrupted creatures, scour the land for Orbital Supply Drops, tame exotic creatures, and build a Mek powerful enough to defeat the colossal, tameable Titans dominating the landscape. A PLANET IN DISTRESS Extinction brings survivors back to where the mysterious journey all started; Earth. What was once a lush and thriving home world is now a corrupt, hostile and desolate shell of its former self. Venture into the diverse landscape where ruins of a past civilization reveal clues to Earth’s demise along with the keys to reviving its future. At the heart of this bleak and foreboding terrain is an overgrown, deserted technological metropolis that rises amidst the waste. Discover and explore long abandoned micro-biospheres which served as the early prototypes for the ARKs of today. TAME NEW CREATURES Capture, tame and craft powerful and unusual organic and mechanical creature types different from anything previously seen in the ARK universe. Increase situational awareness by flying and controlling robotic surveillance drones. Harvest valuable resources by taming and feeding organic transmutation machines. Reach new heights and remote locations by climbing and teleporting with the ultimate security bot. Ensure your survival by building and piloting your own customizable battle Mek to victory! CRAFT UNIQUE ITEMS Ensure mastery on this forsaken world with many new and exotic craftable items. Keep your tames where you want them with a creature leash, use taxidermy tools to enhance your home decor with trophy mounts from your most memorable kills, span and traverse previously uncrossable gaps with a Tek bridge, store and preserve your favorite friendly creature in a portable cryopod for reuse later, utilize Tek gravity grenades to attract or repel foes to your advantage, and autonomously airlift loot back to your base with an airborne delivery crate! CONQUER NEW CHALLENGES As Element runs rampant across Earth, corrupting and mutating all that it touches, Survivors must be prepared for the unique challenges fueled from these cataclysmic events. Engage in epic battles of titanic proportions when encountering the colossal Titans that rule this hostile planet as the ultimate apex predator. Scour the wastelands for orbital supply drops and protect the precious cargo they contain while fending off an onslaught of Element-corrupted monstrosities barely resembling their former selves. Survive and shelter from environmental anomalies such as Element eruptions, eclipses and meteor showers. Return to Earth and complete your conquest of the ARK universe, gain sought after answers to advance the storyline, discover the fate of the original explorers, determine the true purpose of the ARK network, and unravel the remaining mysteries of the Homo Deus! Haven’t yet explored the thrilling world of ARK? Jump into the adventure today during ARK’s Free Weekend on Steam, where the base game ARK: Survival Evolved is available to play for free now - Sunday, Nov 11th, paired with massive discounts to own ARK and its other expansion packs, Scorched Earth and Aberration. Stay tuned to our Twitter account for the most up-to-date information on Extinction official servers going live. PSA: Mac/Linux build will not be available today. ARK on Sale!

  4. Extinction Server Information! As we all know by now ARK: Extinction will be launching tomorrow on November 6th on Steam (Nov 13th for consoles). We are expecting the download to be approximately 10-20gb in size for PC. The information below pertains to PC ARK servers that will be brought online tomorrow at approximately the same time as the expansion pack becomes available. On launch you'll be able to transfer your existing character from your current server into Extinction. You will not be able to transfer items or tames. You can however transfer characters, items, and tames out of Extinction onto other maps. If you were around for the release of Scorched Earth or Aberration this is the exact same process those servers underwent. There are no disabled engrams in Extinction like there was at Aberration's launch, meaning things such as Tek Teleporters are allowed. Creatures like flyers are also enabled on Extinction. We will be introducing North American and European Extinction servers first. We will be releasing an initial start batch of servers, and bringing more servers online as needed so please be patient for us during this period. The servers will be the standard 70-player cap. Extinction will be included in all CrossARK clusters (except 'TheHundred'), as well as Conquest and Small Tribes servers. Extinction will not be supported in Primitive Plus on launch, but it is something we will consider looking into at a later date. Extinction will also not have NoTek/NTek-NoTaming, Primitive, or TheHundred servers for those currently playing on those subsets of gamemodes. The legacy network will get a few servers, however they will be in small supply. ARK: Survival Evolved will be free to play for a week, starting November 6th through November 11th! On-board your friends and family who have not experienced to give them a taste of The Island, Ragnarok, or The Center yet for no cost during those few days. And consider buying it if you enjoyed your time on the ARK to keep on surviving! Extra Life 2018! 25-hours later, our Extra Life charity stream has come to a close and thus another chapter of our Extra Life journey does as well. There were so many great and funny moments throughout the stream. Members of the ARK dev team battled it out in several games that resulted in the loser receiving a penalty. There were wigs, there were hats, there were costumes and hair adornments. There were a special unicorn that managed to steal the show on multiple occasions as well. There were also special previews and discussions regarding our upcoming expansion pack, ARK: Extinction. We showed off taxidermy, Ice Titan taming, Cryopods, Orbital Supply Drop gameplay, and a few creatures that you'll be able to get your hands on soon. This is our fourth year participating in this event and it also happens to be the 10th anniversary for Extra Life as a whole. We were thrilled to learn that on this 10th anniversary we were able to surpass our total donations raised in the past four years to over $100,000! As an individual member (not including team member contributions) we've reached $112,246.44 and counting! As a team we have raised $188,782.75 over the last 4 years (and counting as today is still on-going!). This year was our highest ever personal amount raised. Previously our record was $23,805 and we are sitting at $45,122.27 at the time of writing this post. This was also our highest ever team goal. Previously we had raised $62,004.01 and right now we're sitting at $76,536. Our original goal when we began the stream was hoping to reach $30,000 and we more than doubled that amount, with $11,000 raised before the stream had even begun at 9AM. With all of those numbers, we're currently sitting at rank 7 globally as an individual and rank 6 globally as a team for donations to Extra Life this year! We would like to give special recognition to our top streamers and top individual donators who were a big help in assisting us to our goals this year. We could not have done this without you! Top Streamers (in order of amount raised): LazyCat Xastus the Mad King RoyaleWithCheese Ryan S. FistofTheWalrus Belle Syntac Kara_dee Top Donators: Pavan Fred316 vl_darkangel_lv Helldiver, Anthomnia SurvivalServers.com Eric K. Jerryn tribe of bozo JustPixie Pac-Man443 family KageRamen Pip, Acidic songtao ke Eric P. Jesse P. If you want to contribute to the campaign it's not too late, you can do so right here! Congratulations and thank you again to all of the survivors who joined us at any point during our stream. We'll see you again next year! Modding Community Updates! If you didn't catch it during the Extra Life stream we played some of "The Hunt", it was a ton of fun and it will be interesting to see how this mod continues development. The winners of the contest were also announced last week, with "Valguero" taking first place and securing a grand prize of $15,000! There was a ton of feedback that came out of this contest and we will be taking all of it and reviewing the system before the next one to see where we need to make adjustments. We also had two new mods enter the sponsorship program, "Malfunktion" and "ARK Additions". Lastly, I'm sure the modding community is on the edge of their seats to hear about any new mod functionality in Extinction that they will get to play with. There some goodies that I think everyone will like and I will try to cover them with new tutorials once a devkit update is ready with all of the new content. Fanart of the Week! Amazing artwork from Jamiegogo! Evolution Event Update For This Weekend! There will not be any Evolution Event on PC this weekend due to the massive rates awarded by Extra Life, the launch of Extinction, and the free week that begins tomorrow. We'll be back with more Evo very soon though! Console survivors will be receiving a special Evolution Event perk this weekend! It will be active from Friday the 9th of November at 1 PM EST until Monday the 12th of November at 3 PM EST. All Official Servers across each platform will be undergoing this evolutionary change which includes: 2x Harvesting Rates 2x Taming Rates 2x EXP Rates That's it for this post guys!

  6. Hello Survivors, Today we have some important news regarding the launch of ARK: Extinction on console (Xbox and PS4). After careful consideration, we have decided to move our release date for the console release of Extinction to no later than November 13th. This change does not affect the Steam release of Extinction, which will still be available for purchase on November 6th, at 10am PST. We know this news will come as a disappointment to our console survivors, but we believe that this extra time will result in an improved experience for everyone who plays Extinction on console. Thank you for all your patience and support - we know that Extinction will be worth the wait!

  12. Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! Extinction Creature Teaser Tomorrow! Be sure to tune in to the Xbox channel on Mixer at 11am PST tomorrow (Tuesday) to see a teaser of one of the creatures coming in Extinction during their ARK stream! Last week we introduced you to our adorable giant sloth friend, the Gacha. ARK Digest 55! Thank you for all of your questions for this digest, Survivors! Here is our question and answer session with Lead Programmer Chris Willoughby. This week we've covered some of the very popular questions we've received regarding Extinction. Survivor Asher asks, "Will extinction have an ocean, or at least a large body of water for some bigger aquatic creatures?" and survivor Alex asks, "All Extinction related pictures you've published were mostly on land. Is Extinction is going to be a map like Scorched Earth with no sea or is it a map with water creatures?" Survivor Caleb asks, "Is the dev team currently working on a long-term solution to improve the quality of life/tame cap issues on PVE? If so, could the team provide us with some details?" Survivor Nattix asks, "As you mentioned in the previous digest, titans are going to be temporary tames. Will titans have more uses for PVE players who aren't looking to go to war or are they going to be solely for PVP like titanosaurs?" Survivor Thomas asks, "In a previous teaser we saw some Defense Units roaming the land, this time without their supreme leader summoning them. Could this be the time we finally are able to get our chance to befriend the buggers instead of ripping them apart limb-from-limb (or at least, put them back together again :P)?" Survivor Thomas asks, "Since we already have seen a glimpse of some Wyvern-action on the land below, can we then confirm that Extinction will have some more creatures from previous expansions living on earths crust and if so, will they be living under similar conditions as they were on their respective arks accordingly?" 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 Update! There won't be a community livestream this coming Thursday, but it's because we're super busy poreparing for our TwitchCon event coming up this week, and our yearly Extra Life stream AND the launch of Extinction falls shortly after! These next few weeks sure will be busy. Jen will be present at our special TwitchCon event this year along with ARK producer John. To those of you that RSVP'd to attend we look forward to seeing you there and we hope you enjoy getting to be the first to play Extinction! In case you've missed our last couple of mentions of it, Extra Life this year is on November 3rd and we'll be streaming for 24-hours straight to raise money for sick kids hospitals. We'll be dropping some Extinction teasers along the way and boosting our official server rates as our Extra Life team gets closer to our goal. Be sure to tune into our Twitch channel on the 3rd and we'll have more details about this next week. Mod Community Updates! Over the last two weeks, we managed to spotlight almost every mod in the contest. If you missed any and would like to see what all of the mods have to offer, the streams have been sliced and put into convenient episodes, all of which can be found in this Twitch collection. Public voting for the Mod Contest has concluded but technical evaluations are still being finalized so rankings may still continue to change until the winners are announced on November 1st. The current Rankings can be found here: https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/modding/contest-home/ The start date for the next contest has not yet been determined, the management system will be taken offline during the winter months for some updates and adjustments based on feedback from the current contest. Once a date is determined everyone will be made aware of it. Fanart of the Week! Frost Titan by WYF! ARK: Evolution Event!
