Community Update Hey Survivors, We're excited to announce we'll be streaming on August 8th at 10am PST to talk about some exciting news concerning the future of ARK. You don't want to miss it! We've created a VR countdown to get ready for the moment. It's filled with images and clues that hint at what's to come. Check it out below: Countdown To Live Stream Mod Contest Over the last two months, mod authors have competed for massive cash prizes. They have spent countless hours debugging, polishing, and preparing their projects in hopes to win a grand prize of $10,000! Here at Wildcard, we selected the finalists across two categories, maps and mods. It was a tough decision and there were a lot of great projects. In the end, it was you that chose the final winners of the contest.

The Great Migration {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/8ab207cd4c59dcd460e30fd486f681a235e080b9.jpg As a reminder, tomorrow we are removing some of our lower population legacy ARK servers on PC, Xbox, and PS4 from our Official Legacy network. These servers will begin to go offline permanently at 11AMPST/1PM EST. See below for a list of affected servers: List Of Servers For Removal How To Move Servers If you are unfamiliar with the process, you are able to upload your items, creatures, and player through the Obelisk terminal, supply drops, as well as the Tek Transmitter. Survivors are advised to use Cross-ARK immediately to relocate their belongings onto a server that is not included in our take-down list above. Server Saves of Deleted Servers We will make the save files available as soon as we can. We will host the PC files which anyone can download and then you are welcome to re-host the save file for your own use. We'll include a link to where you can download server saves in this post when they are available. Nitrado will also be able to provide the saves for use on Nitrado servers for console, as they have done in the past.

{STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/72b0795bfcaf3651044a3321cf2a9f9de3b0d59f.png Deinonychus Common Name: Deinonychus Species: Deinonychus magna pede Time: Cretaceous Diet: Carnivore Temperament: Aggressive Wild By the time you hear the scurrying claws of the Deinonychus, it's often too late. Superior hunters, they leap from a hiding place and pounce on their prey. The Deinonychus is an agile climber as well, jumping from wall ledge to wall ledge as it seeks high vantage points to lie in wait. A hungry Deinonychus tends to be fearless and will hunt prey much larger than itself, latching onto a dinosaur's back with its sickle-shaped claws, then starting to feed before its victim is even dead. While it likes its meat fresh, a Deinonychus isn't above scavenging a carcass if no other food is available. Domesticated Raising a Deinonychus in captivity requires an ample food supply, as they have a fast metabolism to match their high activity level. The Deinonychus is also fiercely territorial near nests with eggs, even if the eggs aren't its own. This makes breeding successive generations a hazardous process. Unless raised from eggs, they cannot be tamed; the hunter instinct of a wild Deinonychus is so strong that it reflexively pounces on a would-be master. When will this creature make its first appearance on the ARK? Find out more soon! Twitter:

It’s Ced here, and it’s been an exciting few months as we’ve been amazed by the sheer creativity and ingenuity of the modding community. We’ve had the pleasure of experiencing survival on the moon, building massive race tracks, having epic battles in tribe warfare, and enjoying some fantastic views on many of the breath-taking maps that were submitted to our second mod contest. We are blown away by the talent of the modding community and are forever grateful for the efforts of those who bring these custom experiences to all ARK players worldwide - and soon Xbox.

It was no easy feat to pick the winning entries for this mod contest due to growth of the talent level and understanding of the development kit. We are excited for the future of modding and look forward to seeing what the community has in store for the future!

Instead of the traditional workshop spotlight this week, I will be doing a video review of each of the winners in preparation for next week’s community crunch. Subscribe to our YouTube workshop channel if you’d rather not wait to see all of the finished videos in next week’s community crunch. Without further ado,
