  1. Genesis stream showcase: Biome-specific reskins There will be volcanic, snow, bog, and ocean variants for the normal creatures. https://ark.gamepedia.com/Genesis#/media/File:Biome-Specific_Reskins_Concept_Art.jpg (actual image wasn't pasting for some reason )
  2. Genesis stream showcase: Bloodstalker That "Hexapod" creature from the 4th mysterious mystery, the bloodstalker is a giant spider-like creature that can shoot webs to either trap prey and reel them in so it can drink its blood, or swing from surface to surface like a living grappling hook. He can float while falling, walk on water, give a boost to the vision of it's rider to help find targets, and can climb on walls. If a player pulls out a weapon while riding it, the bloodstalker will go into "sentry mode", where it stands upright to help the player aim better. The only disadvantage I se
  3. Genesis stream showcase: Tek shoulder cannon An element-fueled tek cannon that goes on your shoulder. It can be equipped via the shied slot and is compatible with all other armor. It can be enabled/disabled via an option in the interact menu and once activated can have it's preferences changed via whistling as if it were a creature. It also can have it's preferences changed as if it were an automatic turret. It will automatically detect enemies that the player cannot. It comes in three modes: a standard-fire mode, a rapid-fire mode that causes the thing to overheat when used for too long,
  4. Genesis stream showcase: Mining drill A super-harvester that runs on gasoline. Clicking and holding the fire button will enable you to harvest large quantities of resources from trees, rocks, corpses, etc. Holding down the button for too long, however, will cause it to overheat and become useless for a short time, and also damage it's durability.
  5. Genesis stream showcase: Fishing net Swing it like a bola and launch it at fish to capture them, then reel it in to get an amount of meat that depends on the amount of fish caught and their size. The more fish you catch per load, however, the harder it becomes to reel it in, with a possibility the fish may even escape. There is also a chance you will catch some low-tier loot.
  6. Genesis stream showcase: Pressure plate, Tek alarm system, and Tek jump pad All three of these items are customizable. The pressure plate can be linked to "other items, like traps etc", which I assume could be stuff like doors or automatic turrets. For example, if a player tries to infiltrate your base and steps on the plate, it will trigger the doors to close/lock and the turrets to target the infiltrator. The plate can also be adjusted so that it triggers when only certain things step on it. The tek alarm system, or that "sentry" from the 2nd mysterious mystery, is similar, but it doesn
  7. Genesis stream showcase: Tek Remote Guided Missile and Tek cruise launcher These are pretty self-explanatory: shoot the missile from the launcher, get put into missile-vision, guide missile to target (creatures will be highlighted), kill/destroy target. (Note: I'm not actually 100% sure if the missile launcher is the same item from mysterious transmission #5 pictured above, but they do look kind of similar)
  8. Genesis stream showcase: Ocean platform That "dock" structure from the 6th mysterious transmission. As it turns out, it's actually stationary, essentially a floating island. It has a large open space in the middle for either more foundations or a pen for sea creatures. The platform comes in two variants - the smaller wooden version or the bigger metal version. (Note: top picture shows wooden version, bottom one shows metal version)
  9. Genesis stream showcase: Magmasaur The Magmasaur is another creature seen in the trailer. This creature is a bit more simple: It can eat literally anything, but stuff like oil, gas, and propellant will satiate it more. The Magmasaur can then take this food and if necessary turn it into fiery projectiles that it shoots out of it's back (at the cost of some food). The saddle for it doubles as a heat shield, protecting the rider from the extreme heat of the volcanic hellscape and enabling them to ride the Magmasaur through lava. Finally, when raw metal is put in the Magmasaur's inventory it
  10. Not to mention the fact that the official description of Genesis states that it's "a whole new chapter in the saga of ARK". To me I think that means that the Island through Extinction was the first chapter, and now our character is continuing the story with a sequel storyline, or second chapter.
  11. Genesis stream showcase: Ferox Being what is probably going to be one of Genesis's most iconic creatures, the Ferox is that adorable four-armed creature from the trailer. According to the devs, it is by default a shoulder pet that will keep the player warm and also help them locate element. If it happens to consume element, however (and it CRAVES the stuff), it will essentially turn into a rideable battle tank for a short time, with a variety of different attacks. And the more it damages enemies, the more it builds towards an ultimate attack, which is when the Ferox does a ground slam tha
  12. ...Maybe it implies that we play as some test subject from a test tube, like on the ARKs, but designed for the Genesis simulation? I don't know.
  13. Also, I've figured out that Mysterious Mysteries comes out every 6 to 8 days, though the latest three mysteries have come out every 7 days on the dot.
  14. [LOG_TRANSMIT] Requesting status report. [LOG_RECEIVE] Our explorations are expanding. Lots of terrain to cover. [LOG_TRANSMIT] And it's not all solid ground. [LOG_RECEIVE] Terminal Entry MM-07 [LOG_RECEIVE] Swamps, lava, mountains, craters -- [LOG_RECEIVE] Blazing a trail is hard work here. [LOG_RECEIVE] The trick is to interact with the "trail" as little as possible. FLYING VEHICLE CONFIRMED?!?!
  15. [LOG_TRANSMIT] Requesting status report. [LOG_RECEIVE] We've taken a turn toward the nautical. [LOG_TRANSMIT] Not surprising -- it's a big ocean. [LOG_RECEIVE] Terminal Entry MM-06 [LOG_RECEIVE] Ocean explorers are always scanning the horizon, [LOG_RECEIVE] hoping to cry "land ho!" when they discover a new land. [LOG_RECEIVE] And if you can't find a new land, you've got to make one yourself. Sounds to me like the dock is a larger raft with more for space for building. The normal raft also allows building, but the dock seems like it's taken that and cranked it up
  16. This is called a dock. From what I've gathered it's like a raft on steroids.
  17. GUYS I JUST REALIZED!!! - So I was looking back at those mysterious transmissions that Ê€2Š(¥ËÌY has been putting out, when I realized just how [LOG_RECEIVE] speaks throughout them. With Genesis chronicles just having been released, I now realize that there's only one character that would speak like that - HLN-A!!! [LOG_RECEIVE] isn't just something to do with HLN-A or it's creation - [LOG_RECEIVE] IS HLN-A!!! It all makes sense - those weird messages [LOG_RECEIVE] has been making were her observations of survivors and other things within the Genesis simulation. HLN-A is in the
  18. Based off the message that comes with the image and just the look of these objects themselves, I'm guessing this is some kind of new tek weapon or device.
  19. Honestly I think there's just not enough information at the moment to conclusively know the premise of Genesis. If you recall at the end of Extinction, the last thing our character did was get their implant removed. Then, in the Genesis trailer, the first thing our character did was inspect their arm to find no implant. Then, at the very end of Extinction, you have the scene we know for a fact shows Aberration having crashed after the reseed protocol. If Genesis really does take place before Extinction (and the reseed protocol), then why even keep that scene in the game if it thereby has no re
  20. I pretty much agree with all of this. Also, here's the notes themselves: LAVA CAVE: "Take a look at this. Its a bit of flash that the other survivors must've missed. Good thing you've got ol' HLN-A following you around, right? There's a reason I'm following you around. My creator, Helena, used to be a survivor like you. If I observe you, maybe i can understand her better." SOUTH CAVE: "It fascinates me how you survivors find your own solutions to problems. Stranded in a strange land with no tools? Just punch the trees! I never would have guessed that's effective. Can't wait to
  21. Genesis chronicles just got released on all platforms

  23. [LOG_TRANSMIT] Requesting status report. [LOG_RECEIVE] Rumors everywhere. The bog has a boogeyman. [LOG_TRANSMIT] Today's rumors are tomorrow's folk tales. [LOG_RECEIVE] Terminal Entry MM-05 [LOG_RECEIVE] We find the lucky ones trapped in giant webs. [LOG_RECEIVE] But we find the unlucky ones as corpses, drained of blood. [LOG_RECEIVE] Unluckiest of all are the ones we never find. Given the above text, I assume that this is some spider creature that spits webs and lives in bogs (hence they say "The bog has a boogeyman"). It seems that if you get trapped in it's web,
