Latest ARK News and Updates



What an intriguing discovery survivors, can you guess what creature it is?

Extra Life!


Save the date! Saturday, 4th of November 2017, we'll be beginning a 24-hour stream on to raise as much money as possible for Extra Life and Children's Miracle Network Hospitals! In our first year of fundraising, the ARK Community raised an outstanding $23,500!


Last year you guys smashed that and raised an immense $25,787! Join us on the 4th to see what we'll be able to raise this year!


The stream will be hosted by the lovely Forest Rapczak and Catfu (formerly ThatsCat)! They'll be doing giveaways, ARK Games, as well as hanging out with some of the other developers, content creators, and much more! ;)

If you'd like to get involved in the fundraising and join our Extra Life Tribe - don't hesitate to get in touch, otherwise, tune in and help us save as many kids as we can!

You can support the cause by donating or hang out during our marathon and show some encouragement! Every little bit counts and it goes to a great cause. The Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, Extra Life, and Studio Wildcard greatly appreciate any support you can provide.

Happy Halloween!


This Halloween the ARK is undergoing a spooky seasonal change where the air is colder, the days shorter and the nights longer! Starting on Monday, the 30th of October, all official servers on every platform will be placed under a witches' curse lasting 48 hours! During this time, survivors may encounter abnormal overworld spawns and can find themselves in for a treat with returning cosmetics and valuable stated items available in the drops!

The event will begin at 12 PM ET on Monday the 30th of October and run until 7 PM ET on Wednesday the 1st of November.

Steam Sale!
