Latest ARK News and Updates

Eggcellent Adventure 5 Beginning Tuesday, April 7th until April 21st, survivors will be able to experience our annual Eggcellent Adventure event on PC, Xbox, and PS4! While much of the world is at home, we wanted to give you some new adventures to hunt down. During Eggcellent Adventure 5, survivors will be able to collect special "Bunny Eggs" across the ARK from wild Bunny Dodo's. These Bunny Eggs can be painted or used in special Cooking Pot recipes to craft new holiday-themed item skins such as the Spear and C4 skin, as well as 10 returning skins. Similar to past Eggcellent Adventure events, Bunny Oviraptor's will drop festive Dino Candy. Collect the candy and feed it to your tames for a special festive effect! To top it all off, wild creatures roaming the ARKs will also find themselves sporting some eggcellent colors! For those that are looking to expand their chibi collection, you're in luck! You'll be able to collect the past chibi's we've introduced with the addition of 6 new chibi pets by placing and cracking event-themed eggs from wild bunny dodos.

Community Crunch 202 {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/8a41430ce30b793269e47d36acdb6857bfb5a7a1.jpg Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch! We've got a short one this week. We're all busy working on new and exciting content for upcoming months. We are remaining focused on the health of the Official Network and collecting bug reports and feedback from various social media platforms. You should expect to see a continued focus on existing bugs and polish as we round into the summer months! On The Horizon {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/9e000cc2fcabeda752842d0157e0ba6ee4168692.jpg Enforcement Updates Mission Areas Last week we encountered a bug that rendered some caves build-able. If you have structures within a mission zone (cave) on the Genesis map, you should remove them. The Enforcement Team will take the appropriate actions to remove them otherwise. Teleport Zones Teleport zones are treated as spawn zones and should not be blocked or have turrets in them on PvP or PvE Mindwipes Recently we deployed a patch with a fix to the cooldown timer on mindwipes. We are aware that this didn't resolve all the existing issues that players are currently seeing. We are actively working on a fix for the remaining issues. Player Dedicated Servers We hoped to have player dedicated servers up and running but we've hit a roadblock that will delay

Genesis Update {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/d1c9f8a8ae3edf004ed07f08ff0403aa79bf5c34.jpg We'd like to give a big thanks to the community for all the support you've shown during the Genesis launch! We've seen some amazing community content and enjoy hearing your experiences in the simulation. We have a busy summer coming up! Last week we announced the addition of a new map, Crystal Isles, and a new TLC patch coming this summer. Click here to read about the plans for Summer 2020. In the meantime, we have a number of tweaks we'll be deploying to Genesis in the form of bug fixes and quality of life enhancements over the coming months. We are planning for a patch Wednesday to address some of the more immediate issues following the Genesis launch. Enforcement Update The Enforcement Team has been monitoring the overall health of the Official Network and have new updates to share with the community. Recently there has been an influx of people reporting that dinos are being left in mission areas, including blocking the hoop in basketball missions. Going forward, we will be removing any dinos if they are reported to be blocking mission areas or mission objectives EVO Event {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/be8af67db3c63d05cfa58a77e3ef37a1966f2671.jpg Survivors on all platforms will be receiving a special Evolution Event perk this weekend!

I believe it was Dr Ian Malcolm who first spoke those iconic, halting words: “Life, uh, finds a way.” And it turns out he was right, because with our ARK: Survival Evolved admin commands and cheats guide you can “find a way” to do pretty much anything you want. God mode, infinite stats, spawning items and dinosaurs out of thin air… You name it, we can teach you how to do it. (more…)

Developer: Studio Wildcard, Instinct Games, Efecto Studios, Virtual Basement Publisher: Studio Wildcard Release: Out now On: Windows From: Steam Price: 28/ 30/$35 It s a little-known fact that the ARK in ARK: Survival Evolved is in fact short for arsebark . And that s fitting, because that s exactly what its latest DLC, Genesis, is like: a fart. And what a fart. Not an abrupt, spluttering guff, nor an undulating trouser howl that reduces its culprit to ever more contorted grimaces of shame as it continues. No, ARK: Genesis is a proper, merciless, nine-tins-of-beans ripper, unleashed in a crowded lift on a wet Monday morning. I wouldn t be half so childish if the developers hadn’t already made a fortune from pre-orders, or if Genesis wasn’t so bloatedly overpriced. I’d be reasonable, even, if it seemed they had attempted something beautiful and ambitious here and fallen short. But they haven t. After

Introducing Crystal Isles {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/1cc9802b7a4f631021964a93d84fb47c2daf688e.jpg We are very excited to announce that the one-of-a-kind experience of the ISO: Crystal Isles map will be coming to PC, XBOX, and PlayStation this Summer! Crystal Isles is a stunning, other-worldly map filled with a vibrant display of teeming life scattered amidst its varied landscapes, awe inspiring floating islands and breathtaking biomes. Ever since Crystal Isles launched as a mod in 2016, its fantasy appeal has secured its place as one of the most popular maps within the ARK community and we can't wait to bring it to players as a fully supported free DLC. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/eb0fd5b0d029728ffc910c4ebd43d9cf67f96763.jpg The Crystal Isles DLC will also launch resplendent with a new real-world dinosaur to tame! What do you think the new dinosaur may be? In other news, we've been itching to share that we'll be performing a TLC Pass 3 in the Summer of 2020! This TLC pass will see some of our classic creatures get some new love via visual and functional upgrades. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/bc7d41119241d8b0bc808e7fe37f759dbbb6cd2f.jpg As we move closer to the release of the new Crystal Isles DLC and our much-awaited TLC Pass 3 we'll share more details and information with our players.
