  1. Speciality servers are alternate game modes for ARK that last for a short period of time. Each new theme will bring on a new set of challenges different from that of servers currently available. However, these seasonal servers will wipe and change theme after a determined period of time. We're looking for input from you Survivors today. We've set up a thread and we'd appreciate if you could drop your suggestions into the separate thread below. Changes will revolve around edits that can be made to the existing config which means modifying ini and server settings. These types of changes can include many things like: tribe/alliance size, anything related to dino stats and taming, server rates, etc. This does not include things like mods. Some examples can include: Solo, no tribes Mammals only No carnivores Small Dinos only Limited Tribe Members/No alliances
  2. Survivors! Today we bring you another minor version update to the game that fixes a number of issues. Bug Fixes! We have the following fixes to bring to you today: Primitive Plus! Primitive+ has received a major update with a number of fixes, incorporation of major base game patches, as well as full Total Conversion functionality, including engrams, on Aberration and Scorched Earth. The update includes the creatures from TLC 1 and 2: the Rex, Procoptodon, Gigantopithecus, Direwolf, Direbear, Argentavis, Parasaur, Raptor, Sarcosuchus, Spinosaur, and Triceratops. The update today adds previously missing P+ engrams to the ARK Expansions Aberration and Scorched Earth, as well as missing saddles to previously released creatures. Non-primitive items have been removed from Scorched Earth and Aberration drops, and the Hazard Suit has been added to the Advanced Workbend (in Aberration). These changes now allow for a Primitive Plus experience on both of ARK's expansion packs! That's it for this post guys!

  3. Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! Upcoming Mindwipe! PC player will receive a free forced mindwipe this upcoming patch. This mindwipe is being conducted due to changes that were made in our last patch regarding the altering of weight values of armor. In the interest of fairness we would like to allow players to redo their characters to compensate for the altered weights of these armor sets. This free mindwipe will come to console in the patch that correlates with these weight changes, which will be mentioned in the respective console patch notes threads at that time. Xbox Sale!

  4. Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! Community Stream Roundup #1! On May 10th we had our first 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. The stream began with a brief round-up of community news from Jen. ZenRowe then introduced us to two mods during the Mod Showcase: Anzah and Immersive Taming. From there the community team introduced a special guest, GGFizz, who is a YouTuber and Twitch streamer known for his impressive building skills in ARK. Zen and Jen challenged Fizz to a building contest to see who could build the best dinosaur using only ARK building materials. Ultimately the Twitch chat decided the Doedicurus built by Fizz was the winner, beating out the blue Dodo by Zen and Jen. Running a bit overtime we jumped into the showcase section with Chris. Here we displayed some of the amazing ARKworks created by the community that you sent to us via email. We even chose our top favourites to receive some prizes! We're very excited to see that this first stream was a success and our next community stream will take place on May 24th. We hope to see you there! 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! You can submit your ARKwork to our streaming email address: [email protected] Be sure to follow us on our Twitch page so you don't miss a stream! twitch.tv/survivetheark The Great Migration #3! Once again it is time to remove some of our lower population legacy ARK servers on PC, Xbox, and PS4 from our Official legacy network. Over time the ARK population has migrated from legacy to non-legacy and in its wake left many servers with low populations for 0-1 players in a significant amount of cases. Here is a quick breakdown on how this process works: Taking Down Low Pop Servers With calculations based on sustained player-count as well as popularity of game mode we will be removing lower population legacy servers, most of which retain a 0-1 player concurrent population. These servers will be taken offline on June 12th. Any existing server that is not considered a low pop server and is not taken down at this time will still exist on the Legacy network. Legacy servers will continue to remain on a separate cluster from the new cluster, which means you will not be able to transfer anything between Legacy servers and the new servers. Servers Up for Deletion Below is a complete list of the LEGACY servers that will be deleted come June 12th. You have from now until then to move your belongings onto a server not present on this list. Please click one of the links below. They are separated by platform (PC, Xbox, and PS4). Most Popular Servers To avoid players having to move again in future, we're publishing the most popular servers across all platforms. These servers are the top 30 most active Legacy servers on each platform and are ones most likely to be safe from any future server removals. PC: Xbox: PS4: How To Move Servers If you are unfamiliar with the process, you are able to upload your items, creatures, and player through the Obelisk terminal, supply drops, as well as the Tek Transmitter. Survivors are advised to use Cross-ARK immediately to relocate their belongings onto a server that is not included in our take-down list above. Allocation of New Servers Our new method of onlining new servers has been through what we call "FRESH" servers. These servers are added to the main network but have downloads disabled for a period of 60 days. After 60 days that restraint is removed and they are officially joined to the main network. We plan to online set of Fresh servers on a monthly basis for all platforms so stay tuned for more information on when new ones will be added if you're looking for a fresh start. Server Saves of Deleted Servers We will make the save files available as soon as we can. We will host the PC files which anyone can download and then you are welcome to re-host the save file for your own use. We'll include a link to where you can download server saves in this post when they are available. Nitrado will also be able to provide the saves for use on Nitrado servers for console, as they have done in the past. Upcoming New Speciality Servers! Speciality servers are alternate game modes for ARK that last for a short period of time. Each new theme will bring on a new set of challenges different from that of servers currently available. However, these seasonal servers will wipe and change theme after a determined period of time. We're looking for input from you today. We've set up a thread and we'd appreciate if you could drop your suggestions into the separate thread below. Changes will revolve around edits that can be made to the existing config. These types of changes can include many things like: tribe/alliance size, anything related to dino stats and taming, server rates, etc. If you have a game mode that you think would be fun to play be sure to leave your comment in the thread: Mod Community Updates! Zen here with another addition to the Wildcard Workshop tutorial series where we look at adding config options to mods. You'll find it's easier than you expect but there are some rules to how it works. Files are also included in the tutorial post if desired. As a reminder, the Mod tutorial contests have been extended to be full month submission periods and the awards have been doubled, so there is not a new contest starting this week. The current freestyle contest is still accepting submissions until the end of the month. Xbox Sale! ARK and its expansions are currently on sale on Xbox during the [email protected] Game Fest sale!

    Your ARK Stories!

    Hey Survivors! We're looking to collect some player experiences with ARK and we're reaching out to you. We want to know: how do you play ARK? Do you play with your family/kids? Co-workers? Did you meet new friends through the game that have impacted your life since? Did you become a content creator (YouTuber/Streamer/Artist/Etc) because of ARK, or how has ARK affected that if you were before? Have you used ARK at school for learning purposes, such as education using ARK creatures or using the devkit? Are you a teacher who plays with your students? If you think you have a particularly interesting story about your ARK experience, please share it below!
  10. Hey Survivors, So we’ve finally got in Tribe Rankings! Grabthar’s hammer is safe so let’s have a look see at how it all functions! Keep in mind this is a first-pass for now and as we go along, we’ll be doing more to it and adding more functions. Such as giving other ranks the power to invite, remove, demote and promote other tribe members! When opening your tribe manager, you’ll see that the UI has been slightly changed and this is because of the new ranking management system. The bottom left hand corner, you’ll be able to select and edit the permissions and rankings you have available for your tribe. In the centre, slightly towards the right hand side - you’ll see the different ranks available. To give a tribe member a rank, make sure to select their name in your tribe menu, as well as the rank you’d like to give them and then promote or demote them. Once they've been given a rank, they will have certain permissions assigned to them. Upon inviting new members to a tribe, they are automatically given a default rank. You can change the default rank in ‘Manage Tribe Group Ranks’. Now let’s go through the ranks and permissions themselves! Group Name - Self explanatory, this is what you’d like to call the specific ranking. Default Tribe Group - Whether or not they’re a default group. You can only set one default group at a time and when you invite a member to your tribe, they’ll fall into this group. Prevent Demolishing Structures - Whether they have the right to demolish any structures. Prevent Structure Building In Range - Whether they have the right to build any structures within range of an already existing structure. Access Inventory Rank - Each inventory-object placed in game has a certain rank associated with it. To determine whether a tribe-member can open the inventory of said object, it will take a look at their inventory-rank associated with their tribe-rank. If their tribe-rank’s access inventory rank is below the required number, they will not be able to open the inventory of the item. The access level can be decreased / increased at any time. Activate Structure Rank - Each object placed in game has a certain rank associated with it. To determine whether a tribe-member can activate the structure, it will take a look at their access structure rank associated with their tribe-rank. If their tribe-rank’s access structure rank is below the required number, they will not be able to open the access the structure. The access level can be decreased / increased at any time. New Structure Inventory Rank - When a tribe member belonging to this group places down a new inventory-item, they attach a rank-requirement to it. This is how that is determined. So for instance, if this number is set to 3. Any storage chests placed by this tribe-group will have an access-structure inventory rank of 3 so anyone below that rank will not be able to access the inventory. New Structure Activate Rank - When a tribe member belonging to this group places down a new object, they attach a rank-requirement to it. This is how that is determined. So for instance, if this number is set to 3. Any object placed by this tribe-group will have an activate structure rank of 3, so anyone below that rank will not be able to access it. Ride Pets Rank - The rank required to ride on tribe owned creatures. Order Pets Rank - The rank required to use whistle commands on tribe owned creatures (including Follow, aggression whistles, etc). There is a total of 11 different ranks that a tribe can choose to utilize (0-10). A member of the tribe who is set as Founder or Admin will bypass whatever tribe rank is applied to them. In order to change the rank required on a creature or structure, use the radial menu that is accessible at that creature or structure. Here you can see you have the options to increase or decrease the Order Rank, Inventory Access Rank, and Riding Rank of this dinosaur. When using the radial menu on structures, you will see a combination of the permissions listed above depending on the structure. Try it out and let us know how it goes with your tribe! All the best, Wildcard Jat, Jen & The ARK Survival Evolved Team
  11. Hey Survivors, You can now download the save files of all Legacy PVE servers. The PC save files are available at the following link: https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/pc-legacy-pve-saves At this time, we will not be providing the save files for any PVP server which is currently online. If you are on console, you can host any Legacy save using Nitrado. In your Nitrado panel, navigate on the left-hand side to Tools > Official Import. From there you can choose the backup save for your Official server. We also have a list of deprecated official servers, which were taken offline at the beginning of September. Those save files if you wish to use them can be found on this post, or also through Nitrado:
  12. Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! The Community Crunch is where we share important things going on with ARK, as well as host contests and showcase creations made by the community! TLC #2 Preview - Triceratops! This week we'll be previewing the latest TLC of one of our oldest friend, here is everyone's favourite early tame, the Triceratops! The Triceratops, one of our oldest friends and earliest creatures implemented into the game will be receiving both a gameplay update and visual update including facial changes plus a reskin. Generally, in terms of gameplay, we felt that the Trike was in a relatively good place in regards to how much benefit in provided vs how difficult it was to obtain. As an early game herbivore, we didn't want to do a complete redesign however it was clear to us that there were some very obvious changes we needed to make. First of all, the Triceratops will receive the ability to perform a charge and ram attack! It has a short-wind up time to notify that the trike is preparing to charge, the attack will build speed and damage during the windup, which then transfers to increased damage and ends in a ram attack which will knock targets back and can leave them stunned for a short period of time. Additionally, its herding instincts will be improved, resulting in two changes. A 'Rivalry Buff' which will be applied to all nearby ally Triceratops when in range of large therapods and carnivores that will increase their stats/dmg akin to Mate Boost. It will also increase the wild Triceratops' aggro notify range by twice so that other Trikes are more likely to come to its aid. Introducing Zen Rowe! Zen Rowe will be joining our Community Team as the Mod Community Manager! Here's what he had to say: Hello, Everyone! Allow me to introduce myself, My name is Josh, but some of you may know me as Zen Rowe. I have been a part of the modding community for over two years now and have been heavily involved with the discord especially. I had the pleasure of helping new people in the community learn how to use the ARK Dev Kit and watched them build out their ideas for mods, just as some did for me when I started out. For the last several months I have been sponsored for one of my projects, ArkFrame, which focused on enhancing the mods made by others and supporting interaction between mods. Today, I am excited to become your new Mod Community Manager. My objective is to bring more consistent communication with the community and help mod authors build the quality of their projects even further. I will also be leading the sponsored modding team and be providing support for their projects. We already have some changes planned for the mod community that will be coming soon. Every other week, as part of the community crunch, I will be doing mod spotlights and giving tips, tutorials, and best practices. We are also going to start hosting a Mod Tutorial Contest every other week. As a community, I believe we can embolden and encourage each other to make ARK even better, and I will be an active presence in the multiple areas of the modding community (UE4 forums, Discord, Steam forums). I look forward to working with you all and for our first bit of exciting news, let's begin with the Modding Tutorial Contest! The goal of this contest is to encourage mod authors to share knowledge and increase the skill level and understanding of mod authors that are new or trying to acquire new skills. The Great Migration #2! This will be our final warning regarding the second deprecation of some of our legacy servers! It will take place on Friday, 9th of March. We'll be starting off by working on bringing these specific Legacy Servers offline in the early morning, and by the end of the evening, we'll have a launched a bunch of new Official Servers across all platforms. The save files for the PC servers will be made available on Friday the 9th, and we'll be working with Nitrado to get the console ones online as soon as possible! If you are a player on the Official Legacy Server Network please read the full post at the link below for more information as well as a list of which Legacy servers are being taken down permanently. Arkpocalypse Servers! Our previously named Extinction servers have been renamed ARKPOCALYPSE servers for all platforms. They also have increased rates! Join a fast-paced server that wipes every month! The increased values are listed below as well as the key ones are listed on the image above. You can play on your favourite map and transfer between other Arkpocalypse servers on a closed cluster, separate from the main PVP cluster. Note: Arkpocalypse servers are not affected by Evolution Events. Fan Building Contest! Survivors, Firespark81 & GGFizz are currently hosting a building contest for fellow PC Survivors. They are doing both a vanilla and modded contest. If you're a budding arkitect and interested in the competition, check out the video above.

  13. Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! Community Stream Roundup #1! On May 10th we had our first 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. The stream began with a brief round-up of community news from Jen. ZenRowe then introduced us to two mods during the Mod Showcase: Anzah and Immersive Taming. From there the community team introduced a special guest, GGFizz, who is a YouTuber and Twitch streamer known for his impressive building skills in ARK. Zen and Jen challenged Fizz to a building contest to see who could build the best dinosaur using only ARK building materials. Ultimately the Twitch chat decided the Doedicurus built by Fizz was the winner, beating out the blue Dodo by Zen and Jen. Running a bit overtime we jumped into the showcase section with Chris. Here we displayed some of the amazing ARKworks created by the community that you sent to us via email. We even chose our top favourites to receive some prizes! We're very excited to see that this first stream was a success and our next community stream will take place on May 24th. We hope to see you there! 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! You can submit your ARKwork to our streaming email address: [email protected] Be sure to follow us on our Twitch page so you don't miss a stream! twitch.tv/survivetheark The Great Migration #3! Once again it is time to remove some of our lower population legacy ARK servers on PC, Xbox, and PS4 from our Official legacy network. Over time the ARK population has migrated from legacy to non-legacy and in its wake left many servers with low populations for 0-1 players in a significant amount of cases. Here is a quick breakdown on how this process works: Taking Down Low Pop Servers With calculations based on sustained player-count as well as popularity of game mode we will be removing lower population legacy servers, most of which retain a 0-1 player concurrent population. These servers will be taken offline on June 12th. Any existing server that is not considered a low pop server and is not taken down at this time will still exist on the Legacy network. Legacy servers will continue to remain on a separate cluster from the new cluster, which means you will not be able to transfer anything between Legacy servers and the new servers. Servers Up for Deletion Below is a complete list of the LEGACY servers that will be deleted come June 12th. You have from now until then to move your belongings onto a server not present on this list. Please click one of the links below. They are separated by platform (PC, Xbox, and PS4). Most Popular Servers To avoid players having to move again in future, we're publishing the most popular servers across all platforms. These servers are the top 30 most active Legacy servers on each platform and are ones most likely to be safe from any future server removals. PC: Xbox: PS4: How To Move Servers If you are unfamiliar with the process, you are able to upload your items, creatures, and player through the Obelisk terminal, supply drops, as well as the Tek Transmitter. Survivors are advised to use Cross-ARK immediately to relocate their belongings onto a server that is not included in our take-down list above. Allocation of New Servers Our new method of onlining new servers has been through what we call "FRESH" servers. These servers are added to the main network but have downloads disabled for a period of 60 days. After 60 days that restraint is removed and they are officially joined to the main network. We plan to online set of Fresh servers on a monthly basis for all platforms so stay tuned for more information on when new ones will be added if you're looking for a fresh start. Server Saves of Deleted Servers We will make the save files available as soon as we can. We will host the PC files which anyone can download and then you are welcome to re-host the save file for your own use. We'll include a link to where you can download server saves in this post when they are available. Nitrado will also be able to provide the saves for use on Nitrado servers for console, as they have done in the past. Upcoming New Speciality Servers! Speciality servers are alternate game modes for ARK that last for a short period of time. Each new theme will bring on a new set of challenges different from that of servers currently available. However, these seasonal servers will wipe and change theme after a determined period of time. We're looking for input from you today. We've set up a thread and we'd appreciate if you could drop your suggestions into the separate thread below. Changes will revolve around edits that can be made to the existing config. These types of changes can include many things like: tribe/alliance size, anything related to dino stats and taming, server rates, etc. If you have a game mode that you think would be fun to play be sure to leave your comment in the thread: Mod Community Updates! Zen here with another addition to the Wildcard Workshop tutorial series where we look at adding config options to mods. You'll find it's easier than you expect but there are some rules to how it works. Files are also included in the tutorial post if desired. As a reminder, the Mod tutorial contests have been extended to be full month submission periods and the awards have been doubled, so there is not a new contest starting this week. The current freestyle contest is still accepting submissions until the end of the month. Xbox Sale! ARK and its expansions are currently on sale on Xbox during the [email protected] Game Fest sale! Sale ends May 21st, 2018. ARK: Survival Evolved ARK: Explorer's Edition ARK: Season Pass ARK: Scorched Earth ARK: Aberration ARK: Evolution Event! Our next Evolution Event will take place from the 25th of May at 1 PM EST until Monday the 28th at 3 PM EST. That's it for this post guys!

  15. Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! Upcoming New Servers! Beginner Servers: Tomorrow, May 8th at approximately 10 am PST we will be launching a new set of servers called Beginner servers! Beginner Official Servers are an experience for new ARK players to test the waters without the threat of thoroughly developed tribes. Unlike our regular servers, these have undergone some changes. First of all, there have been some limitations on how much a player or dino can progress. Player levels hit their cap at 44 and the highest encounter possible for wild creatures is level 30. Tamed creatures can receive up to an additional maximum of 30 levels. Due to the progression limits, some engrams are not achievable through levelling up but are found via supply crates. Some other changes include the disabling of alliances and tribe sizes have been limited to 5 members maximum. Once established on a beginner server survivors can choose to exit into the rest of the official server network by uploading their character and moving to another server for the full ARK experience. Downloads of any kind are permanently disabled on Beginner servers so once you upload your character and leave the server you can't come back. *Beginner* servers will be available to play on all platforms (PC and consoles) tomorrow! Tune into our Twitter account for further release information. https://twitter.com/survivetheark Speciality Servers: Speciality servers are alternate game modes for ARK that last for a short period of time. Each new theme will bring on a new set of challenges different from that of servers currently available. However, these seasonal servers will wipe and change theme after a determined period of time.

These Fresh servers have downloads disabled but uploads enabled for a period of 60 days. After 60 days transfers will open and they will no longer be called Fresh servers. Players are invited to play and build up on these servers without the threat of existing alpha tribes before joining the official server network at the end of the 60 day period. *FRESH* servers will be available to play on consoles tomorrow (Fresh servers are already available on PC)! Tune into our Twitter account for further release information. https://twitter.com/survivetheark Community Livestreams! Beginning this Thursday on May 10th and continuing every other week on Thursdays, the community team will be doing biweekly livestreams! During these livestreams we will have Zen Rowe, Chris, and Jen bringing ARK news, celebrating modding, and the community as a whole every other week. We'll be playing ARK, showing off mods, and showing off your community creations for all to see. Survivors are invited to join us in the chat (and sometimes even in-game) to play and talk with the community team and other developers. At this time we're going to begin gathering up your community creations to be displayed on stream. We are accepting any type of ARK related fanart. This can be drawings, videos, builds, ANSEL screenshots, handmade crafts, anything ARK related! We will no longer be running Community Crunch contests here on the forums. The Community Crunch will transition into being our weekly news post, while the biweekly streams will become our new Community celebration initiative. We will instead be running contests on the livestreams, with a chance to win something special if your submission is the best of the bunch. You can submit your ARKwork to our streaming email address: [email protected] Be sure to follow us on our Twitch page so you don't miss a stream! twitch.tv/survivetheark Mod Community Updates! Last week we made a change to the Mod Tutorial Contests. We increased the length of time for contests going forward to be a full month, and we doubled the awards. This should make it easier for people to participate without feeling like they have to sacrifice on their mods, and for non-native English speakers who found it difficult to put something together under the previous time constraints. This change takes effect with the current Freestyle tutorial contest which is now accepting submissions until the end of the month. Now, it's time to announce the winner of the 4th Mod tutorial contest. The theme was "Space Day," a day dedicated to math, science, technology, and inspiring people to take an interest. The winning submission was a collaborative effort between RedDwarf and Pleasure for a Solar Panel mod. They also included a bonus tutorial video that shows the entire process of creating the custom assets for the mod! All of the submissions and links to the tutorials are available in the contest thread. ARK: Superfan Collector's Edition! We still have a limited number of ARK: Collector's Editions on PlayArk.com for purchase! It includes our special edition items (dossier book, map, necklace, soundtrack) but does not include the game or season pass. Grab all the cool Collector's items! Worldwide shipping is available. http://playark.com ARK: Evolution Event! Our next Evolution Event will take place on the 11th of May at 1 PM EST until Monday the 14th at 3 PM EST. 1.5x Harvesting 1.5x Egg Hatching 1.5x Gestation 1.5x Maturation That's it for this post guys!

  16. Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! The Community Crunch is where we share important things going on with ARK, as well as host contests and showcase creations made by the community! Code of Conduct Changes! Today we are announcing our new Code of Conduct for our Official Server network. This Code of Conduct can be found in its entirety at the top of our website under the Support link. New Incident Reporting System! In addition to the Code of Conduct changes, we'd like to introduce you to our new reporting system, currently in beta and for PC players only. https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/incident-reports/ This is our new Incident Reports area. You can find it on the forums by hovering over the Support button at the top of the page and clicking 'Report PC Abuse'. The Customer Support link has been moved to underneath the Help sub-section under Support. When submitting an Incident Report, please make sure to provide as much information as possible. Here is a sample report. This is how your report will appear to our Game Moderators: You should provide any and all evidence of the reason you are reporting someone in the form of screenshots and/or videos. Evidence helps our Game Moderators collect proof of someone breaking the rules and allows them to take action more quickly. While in this beta process we are accepting PC reports only using the Incident Report system. Any and all reports of hacking, exploiting, griefing, and misconduct on Official Servers should be done so through the Incident Report submission process. These changes to the Code of Conduct and our Incident Reporting system are an effort to improve the process of the reporting system and the health of our Official Server network. We look forward to working with survivors to achieve a better playing environment for all players and we thank you for your patience during this growth process. Console Transfers and TLC 2! We are now targeting the console patch (Xbox and PS4) release during the week of April 23th and will keep you posted about more accurate release dates once we get closer to the date. This is later than what we reported in our Crunch last week, but we are confident that we will be able to meet the deadline of the week of the 23rd over the previous week. With this update, we'll also be: - Enabling item transfers and the vanilla-version of aberrant creatures to be moved to Aberration servers. This means that you'll be able to take over your regular Spino to an Aberration server. - Preventing people from building within the Ragnarok Puzzle cave, so if you store any structures or creatures down there, make use of this time to relocate them ASAP as once this update goes live on console, that will no longer be possible. It is important to note that the Turret Update will not go live on console with this update, but instead a future one. ARK: Evolution Event! Our next Evolution Event will take place from the 20th of April at 1 PM EST until Monday the 23rd at 3 PM EST. All Official Servers will be undergoing this evolutionary change which includes: 2x Harvesting Rate 2x Taming Rate 2x EXP Rate Wildcard Workshop & Tutorial Contest #4: Spaaaaaace! Today in the workshop we begin to tackle the topic of Replication, how code functions in a multiplayer environment. We go into a broad overview of the different methods available for replication, and my band of merry modders helps to give some visualization to how this system works. In the next video, we'll dive into some actual practical examples. Next month, May 4th is Space Day! I could think of no more appropriate a day to focus some mod tutorials around to inspire people to take an interest in math, science, and technology. So our theme for the fourth modding tutorial contest is Space Day Props! ARK is on Sale for Xbox! The ARK season pass and all its expansions are currently on sale in the Xbox Digital Store until 16th of April 2018! Only have a few more hours to take advantage of this one! ARK: Season Pass ARK: Aberration ARK: Scorched Earth Community Contests! In case you missed our post last week, we're going to be pausing our weekly community contests (ARKitect & Nvidia Ansel). We'll be looking at new ways which we can directly engage the community, as well as share the best content that you guys produce through different initiatives. We enjoy hosting these contests and love seeing what you've come up with, so hang tight to see what we have in store! That's it for this post guys!

  18. We’re very excited to announce that the world of ARK: Survival Evolved is coming to mobile! Thanks to the efforts of veteran mobile developer War Drum Studios (the team behind the mobile versions of Bully, Grand Theft Auto, and Auralux), gamers will be able to join the massively multiplayer survival experience that is ARK right from their mobile devices! All gameplay footage for this trailer was recorded live using an iPhone 8. Designed and developed by War Drum Studios, ARK: Survival Evolved mobile is free-to-play and puts the dino-taming adventure in the palm of your hand, letting you join forces with tens of thousands of other mobile survivors. This on-the-go version of ARK features the online survival experience contained in the PC and console versions of ARK, including a gigantic island to explore, 80+ dinosaurs and primeval creatures to tame and train, multiplayer tribe mechanics, and of course, crafting and building! Mobile features include: Taming: Use cunning strategy and tactics to befriend, ride and breed the many dinosaurs and other primeval creatures roaming the dynamic, persistent ecosystems across land, sea, air, and even underground. Discover: Unearth rare blueprints and Explorer Notes written by previous human denizens of the ARK from across the millennia, detailing the mysterious Island’s creatures and backstory. Craft and build: Using any means necessary - survive, craft weapons, clothes, and items, and build shelters, villages, or even large cities. Plant, harvest, build, level-up, and customize everything visually and functionally, including procedurally-generated RPG statistics for creatures, characters, resources, clothing, gear, and weapons, both primitive and modern. Play alone or team up to survive: Team up with, or prey on, up to 50 other players in a large-scale multiplayer online first-person environment, or choose single player mode to test your mettle against the world solo. Join a tribe: The 'Tribe' system encourages cooperation, by supporting dynamic parties to share resources, experience points, and re-spawn points. While maintaining the true ARK experience players have come to know and love, this mobilized version of the game has been completely adapted for handheld touch devices allowing for the ultimate survival experience on a mobile device. This includes faster paced gameplay, a unique user interface and a specialised control setup developed specifically for the mobile game. The mobile version also offers optional upgrades survivors can acquire using special in-game resources that will allow players to progress faster, obtain certain buffs for periods of time, build special crafting structures, and even bring your beloved tames back from the dead! You can pre-register now to stay in-the-know with the mobile version of ARK: Survival Evolved. Keep informed about the beta, release date, special offers and more! There may even be some day 1 in-game bonuses thrown in to the mix for those Survivors that Pre-Register! Just head over to http://playark.com/mobile/ In extra special news, War Drum will also be launching a limited closed beta on iOS, with a full worldwide launch anticipated later this Spring on the iOS App Store and Google Play Store. Interested ARK survivors can visit the link below to sign up for news on the game’s development and for a chance to participate in the ARK closed beta! For additional information on the closed beta you can read the Frequently Asked Questions page here: The ARK mobile community will exist here on survivetheark.com with its own dedicated News and Forum section that will be moderated by War Drum.
