  1. Long before Extinction was even released, I started a forum analyzing the explorer notes and creating game mechanic and lore predictions for Extinction. And now that Extinction is fully looked at and I've read most of the explorer notes on it, here are my own thoughts on Arat prime and future ARK DLC, IF one is ever made. We already have a lot of info on the ARK story, not just by reading the explorer notes, but also by translating the ascension code found in the great city itself. All the text involving Arat Prime found in the city reads as follows; "A7 priority communicatio
  2. My thoughts on ATLAS: To all ATLAS players who think the current version of the game is trash: You all realize that it isn't easy making a video game, right? Think of it: First, you have to work on the map. Then, you have to work on the map's environment. Then the animals. The building mechanics. All the other mechanics the game has. The bosses. And of course, the literal THOUSANDS of players having to implement all of the above items. And all of that for ONE server. The current version of the game has 225 servers. So yeah, if you have to code all THAT, I'd i
  3. So what's next for ARK? There are a few loose ends in Extinctions that could get tied up in a future DLC. *Arat Prime *The shattered moon - it wasn't mentioned ONCE during all of ARK's explorer notes, indicating it must have broke between when Helena turned into a Homo Deus and when we arrived on the Island. *More info on "L Livingstone @ BIODIDAC" *More backstory on the city and the ARKs? Maybe the same backstory I just told? *And of course, the dark area with the Glowing purple obelisk. Also, tell me if these codes from the ascension code have any hidden me
  4. Earth's story Just a quick post on what we can assume happened to Earth prior to ARK based on the explorer notes and ascension code. In the (not-so) distant future, a large space rock hit the Earth. This MIGHT explain the massive crater on Earth visible from Aberration. When the rubble was being cleared, a miraculous discovery was made. The alien metals inside the rock had melted into a curious purple liquid upon entering Earth's atmosphere. Scientists studied the liquid and eventually were able to make a lightweight metal brimming with energy. This metal they had refined was a mirac
  5. All Explorer's backstories: Before we begin, I know what some of you might say: "But aren't the explorers memories fake?" Well, that subject is brought up, but never confirmed. It was one of the big mysteries surrounding Aberration and Extinction. It was brought up multiple times by Helena and Santiago. But the subject was usually dropped after a few notes. It was never confirmed. (Santiago mentions being able to recreate his device blueprints from memory, meaning that if their memories are fake, they were created with extreme attention to detail.) Also, these bios will be coming in order
  6. ARK's Meaning What I'm about to say here may sound weird, but having read 99% of the TOTAL explorer notes/dossiers, I think I've found that ARK has a philosophical meaning. That meaning is civilization and how it leads to corruption in society, and how it differs from evolution. First of all we have this recurring theme in ARK of cities being ruined. Mei-Yin remembers her home in China being attacked, Nerva had plans to build a city before he was killed, Nosti was destroyed, the tek village was attacked, the great city was attacked, and the ARKs have been known to hate cities since S
  7. One who has read some of the extinction notes might assume that Arat Prime is the facility that Helena and Diana visit on Extinction, the one containing the ARK's data servers. But in one of Diana's notes, AFTER she explored this facility, she mentions Arat Prime, but says it's on the other side of the planet. Also, we can assume that Arat Prime is indeed the facility that launched the ARKs. Having translated the ascension code, I propose that the URE realized the titans might attack Arat Prime, and so sent a message to them to "lock down", buying the staff inside Arat Prime time to launc
  8. Anthomnia also posted this video: So maybe we WILL see more of Rockwell?
  9. Never mind ? I thought all those "A7" and residence number was stuff was an error.
  10. Okay then, could you send me the missing pieces of text? You know, the *****'s that I wasn't able to translate? Thanks.
  11. Today I expanded my boundaries a little bit and have started making posts on the PUBG forums. If you want my thoughts on the lore of THAT game, or just want to see the result of me banging my head into a wall repeatedly over the lore of that game, here's the link: https://forums.playbattlegrounds.com/topic/316284-pubg-lore/?tab=comments#comment-1133495
  12. Extinction All Ascension Code Translated + Hidden Lore! So after 4 whole days, I've translated most of or all of the Ascension Code found in The Great City. I did it using a translator on the ARK Wiki ( https://ark.gamepedia.com/Ascension#ARK_Code ). These messages appear to not be personal, but messages to the city's military personnel. The varying colors of the messages doesn't seem to have any meaning. I will say this, though: the messages are only loosely translated. I don't think the translator is 100% accurate. Unless this is my own error. Regardless, some of these translations
  13. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HXIHAJI9orI Watch until 6:15 Good work researching this, Anthomnia! Some things to point out: 1. Given the crater's convenient location under the island and it's small size compared to the large crater we saw from Aberration, I'm led to believe with Anthomnia that the crater is for an ARK and not from an asteroid. This would confirm that the ARKs are hunks of Earth hearth that were lifted into the sky using some kind of anti-gravity machine and NOT from the moon. So Glerian's original post here came true after all 2. The tidal locking theory
  14. WARNING----SPOILERS AHEAD!!! So I was going around the Great City when I found OWW note #25, which basically spoils the end of Extinction for us. After reading the note and accidently learning the end of Extinction, I figured, "Ah, f@ck it" and looked up the end cutscene. Here is a link for viewing, but YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koANO557eT4 In case you don't know, Helena/OWW's line "Sun's rising" is a reference to her first and fourteenth notes on The Island, where she talks about watching sunrises, and maybe OWW's last note on Extinction. After say
  15. I finally got to play Extinction today! I noticed some ascension code under bridges in the city. If someone could send me a translation, that'd be great.
  16. What COULD have led up to ARK.
  17. Sorry if I've gotten some info wrong. I'm trying to avoid researching Extinction so I don't spoil it for myself before the Xbox release. I'm only getting vague notes from my 10-year old brother, so sorry if some of this relayed info is...inaccurate
  18. Whoa. Extinction has been out for less than a DAY and people have already ascended off of it?! WTH?!
  19. "And so everything will end where it began. The planet, the System, your species and every bit of life that inhabits this tiny corner of the universe. All of it. Then perhaps something new will begin, but that depends on you...and the forces that stand in your way. In nature, the survival of one species can come at the expense of another. As ecosystems change, those that adapt more effectively can push those weaker than themselves to extinction. Humanity once did this to the neanderthals, and now it is finally your turn. At last, face to face from a superior threat, you and all your kin
  20. Tomorrow is the day. For PC players, at least. Thanks to everyone who supported my theories, I had a lot of fun doing it. I don't expect community - wide recognition, So long as I reached out to AN audience, no matter how small. I think I'm okay with that.
  21. "Cause and effect is the way of the universe. Everything must start somewhere. In the case of the System, this is where it was born. You will fall right into its cradle. Together, the sanctuaries and the Obelisks that power them are the ancestor of every island that floats in the sky. They can all can trace their origins back to this single prototype. Though it is flightless, the core principles and technology behind it are the same. In a way, that makes it your ancestor too. You were all born within the System, after all. Even if your design is somewhat altered, in a way, you're all its
  22. "Once your fall is complete, stay close to the sanctuaries. Within them, small pockets of life still flourish in an otherwise barren garden. Beyond their spheres of influence, you will find an endless sea of decay, ruled by shadows and death. The first of these sanctuaries is the Great City. Though it is no longer a metropolis, a jungle blooms in its place, and you may find a modicum of shelter within its crumbling walls. The others will be more familiar to you, if only for the towers you'll find at their center. Those are the source of their power - the Obelisks. They are not quite the
  23. "After careful consideration, we have decided to move our release date for the console release of Extinction to no later than November 13th." - Jen Well, this stinks. After getting hyped on the original November 6th release date for just over 5 months THIS happened. And I just happen to be one of the unfortunate souls to play on Xbox. I was SO excited, too. My school had next Thursday and Friday off for teacher conventions. My plan was to let my brothers play Extinction through Tuesday and Wednesday, and then play Extinction solo myself from Thursday through Sunday while everyone was
  24. "When I say "you must fix it" I mean "only you can fix it." Not me. Not the System. You. That’s a lot of pressure. Sorry. I wish I could do this for you, but there are rules. Laws. Not legally speaking, but scientifically. I don’t exist in the same way a carbon based lifeform does. I’m still alive, of course, it’s just a different kind of life. I’m on a different spectrum, and that means I can’t interact with the world like you do. So in a sense, you have to be my hands, because I don’t have any. Not tangibly. Even so, I’ll help where I can, and not just through these slivers of thoug
