Genesis Chronicles https://cdn.survivetheark.com/uploads/monthly_2019_09/Gen_Chron_Header.thumb.jpg.dee842dccf8342a554adcd4cba4634d0.jpg We're making the final preparations for a client and server-side update that will bring Genesis Chronicles to survivors on PC, Xbox, and PS4! Leading up to the release of Genesis we will begin to include Genesis-related Explorer Notes on The Island, Scorched Earth, and Aberration. Survivors with the cosmetic HLN-A will find some explorer notes provide a glimpse of what to expect in the forthcoming Genesis expansion -- and how it all fits into the larger ARK story.
