Leading up to the release of Extinction there will be monthly drops of Extinction-related Explorer Notes on The Island, Scorched Earth, and Aberration. Once collected these notes will unlock new Extinction-related skins! https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/959714590732141996/776070ADC891A7A69D78C89B113C1CE9A5C7583F/ There will also be the appearance of more powerful Tek-themed Dinosaur variants within the ARKs each month. These Tek Dinos are permanent additions (meaning they will continue to spawn even after the event is over), with a new one beginning to appear each month. In Extinction Chronicles I we released three Explorer Notes, the Corrupted Helmet and the Tek Rex. Tomorrow we're excited to bring you three new Explorer Notes, the Corrupted Boots and a new Tek creature, the Tek Stego! https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/959714590732143643/56F723E8BAB681F097BFD33E395DA4AEC32FE983/ In addition, special colored dinos will be populating the ARKs. You'll be able to find creatures sporting purple, black, grey, and dark blue for the next week beginning tomorrow.

An Element-infested, ravaged planet filled with fantastical creatures both organic and technological, Earth holds both the secrets of the past and the keys to its salvation. https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/927061036452079970/12A9475454F548F82AB63D429D59B1AD52C6D777/ https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/927061036451975626/CBE6533B67B034F9FCB37D3294F805A888650F41/ ARK: Extinction will release worldwide on November 6, 2018, joining the desert-themed Scorched Earth and the underground, derelict biome Aberration, in continuing to unravel the mysteries of ARK! https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/927061036452030756/47E889225FB570A426796351B069FDA2F8B04038/ https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/927061036452083800/07E6D954D42962C8AE94A096DC83A175ED7AB955/ As a veteran Survivor who has conquered all previous obstacles, the ultimate challenge now awaits you.

We are very excited to announce we are launching a new in-game event: ARKaeology! https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/927060600048941974/E5D191D6258FD42F4FB32F484217FBF6520795A8/ The event will run beginning today on all platforms until July 15th. As you traverse along the ground on any of the maps (the Island, The Center, Ragnarok, Aberration or Scorched Earth) you will come across fossil mounds which you are able to excavate. Inside the mounds, you'll find a few bones and if you're lucky you'll even find extra loot inside of one (signified by a special particle effect)! After you collect enough bones you’ll be able to craft several skins with the use of a Cooking Pot. There are four brand new skins to collect: Brachiosaurus (Brontosaurus Costume) https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/927060600047175416/990B0B625CF8E54BA2A1506117D02AC0B96E0BD0/ Stygimoloch (Pachycephalosaurus Costume) https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/927060600049258119/B8472FF9C1E3DBA4BFD3BDD8FC9F32AD02DE22D6/ Styracosaurus (Triceratops Costume)

Upcoming Structure Changes! https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1403113792 Later this week we plan to roll out an update that will make some changes to our current structure decay rules. In essence, we are redefining what we consider a viable minimum base or set of structures. Structures which do not meet this definition will rapidly decay resulting in the ability to either destroy them by hand or have the server automatically destroy the structures when they are loaded/leave stasis.  Our intent behind this change is to address structure spamming issues (pillar/foundation spam) which often takes place when players attempt to claim or grief different areas of the map in both PVE and PVP. We anticipate that this particular update will be iterative and there most likely will be additional adjustments in the coming weeks as we work to resolve this issue. Code of Conduct Updates! Following our previous Crunch, the Enforcement Team are back again with another important notice regarding the Code of Conduct. We'd like to make Official Players aware of the following revision: Hacking and Exploiting Revision Exploiting - examples are not limited to but can include: Attacking from, travelling through, or building in unintended game-zones (under the mesh or above the map) Duplication of tames, items, or characters Unintended
