Dododex, a hugely popular tool used by the Ark: Survival Evolved community as a companion to Studio Wildcard's survival game, has just got a nifty new feature designed to help you compare dino to dino. Dododex's founder Dan Leveille has launched a new "interactive list of dinos to search, sort, and compare carryability, snares, and other attributes" to the tool's web version, which should make navigating the many attributes of Ark's many different dinos far quicker and easier. These features were previously only available on Dododex's app version, as the creator explains on the action-adventure game's subreddit, but with their web version debut they've got some nifty improvements, too. As you can see on the new web tool's page, there are five different charts covering various attributes - "flyer carryability, land and water carryability (including Procoptodon pouch for babies), structure samage types (Thatch, Wood, Metal...), snares and fraps, fits through (doors and gates)", as

If you're more into creating the ultimate home base than chasing down dinos and other critters in Ark: Survival Evolved, then one of the action-adventure game's new community-made mods might appeal. Called 'Akka's interior decor structures', the fan creation adds a whopping 500+ items to Studio Wildcard's survival game for decking out a decadent base. Creator Akka's new Ark: Survival Evolved mod breaks down into a bunch of different categories of stuff, which range from structural assets like walls, windows, and doors to more cosmetic items, such as floor and wall decor, a load of furniture, tableware, tale decorations, statuettes, and more. You can still bring a flavour of the dino-filled outside world into your base with some of the items, with the statuettes all being based on the game's many giant toothy critters. But, many of the offerings can give your home base a decidedly gothic, rustic, or even modern feel, too. As you can see in the mod's attached images, many of the furniture items are highly attractive (and pretty ornate) carved wood

Like so many other games, Ark: Survival Evolved has been impacted by pandemic lockdowns and work-from-home conditions, and that's led to the delay on the survival game's final piece of paid DLC. Genesis Part 2, Ark's fifth paid expansion, was set to come out this month but has been pushed back to May 26. Studio Wildcard issued an apology for the delay in a post to the official Ark website Friday evening, saying the studio is "disappointed" to have to postpone the release date. "As we have shared before, the studio transitioned to working remotely near the beginning of last year, presenting some particular constraints", the post reads. "Being entirely virtual is quite challenging for various teams with a shift from an in-office workflow." Being that Genesis 2 is Ark's "grand finale" and will be a send-off for the game before the focus shifts to Ark 2, Studio Wildcard says it's important to get things right "from a narrative, cinematic, and end-game-wise perspective".

Ahead of the arrival of Ark: Survival Evolved's next expansion Genesis: Part 2 in March, one of the action-adventure game's community creators has been busy crafting an impressive, all-encompassing mod that adds just, oh, so many things to its dino-filled world. Alongside a bunch of other new content, the mod ushers in an economy system, new creatures, weapons, and armour. The new 'GG economy' mod by creator Gamegods2021 brings a system Ark players can use in servers which is based around tokens. The idea is that you need to earn tokens which can then be used to obtain things like weapons, armour, potions, items, and structures. The mod's description doesn't go into detail about all the ways this currency is earned, but it does note that tokens aren't "meant to be obtained rapidly" and that how you choose to spend them is "strategic". Plus, servers with certain settings can tweak the rate at which tokens are accrued. Alongside the economy system itself, the mod adds new creatures which drop currency when they're felled, with some "breedable VR and ghost variants", as well as some wyverns and other critters from another of Studio

Sure, it's great to charge around Ark: Survival Evolved's big open world, fending off dinos with a chibi pet at your side. But, what to do when you've got a ton of the little critters and want to celebrate and appreciate them, but don't have space to ferry them all around? Well, a new mod on the action-adventure game's Steam Workshop might be the perfect answer. Ark: Survival Evolved fan and modder Eco has a brilliant solution to this dilemma: chibi displays. Their mod lets you "craft decorated biome bases to display and store your favourite chibis", and the images included on the creation's page are things of beauty. Each chibi can sit, perched and animated, in its own little biome, with plants and terrain perfectly suited to its type and background. The way the mod works is by adding a "crafting cart" with a whole bunch of different display options. There's a "42-slot storage box" as well as a raft of base types - for example, "Biolum", crystal (green, blue, red, and purple), "calming", green ocean, lava, sandy, and snowy. There's also an option for setting up displays on a wall. Read the rest of the story... RELATED

If that Ark 2 trailer featuring - yep - Vin Diesel revealed at The Game Awards late last year caught your attention, but you're a newcomer to the survival games series, you might be interested to know its predecessor is currently seeing an eye-watering discount. Ark: Survival Evolved is currently 80% off on Steam, but you'll have to be quick about it. Head to the 2017 action-adventure game's store page on Valve's platform and you'll see it's currently 20% of its regular price - £9 down from £44.99 (or $10 if you're based in the US). That's for the base game version, but the Explorer's Edition bundle, which includes the Ark: Survival Evolved Season Pass, is also knocked down 79% at the moment, priced at £16.86 rather than the usual £79.98. The season pass includes three DLC packs - the Scorched Earth, Aberration, and Extinction expansions - which add things like new biomes with their own styles and ecosystems, as well as new creatures, and items, challenges.
