Earlier this week ARK: Survival Evolved was due to get its biggest update yet but sadly it was delayed. But let your sadness begone as today the update was finally launched and with it came some features that are very exciting indeed. The update itself is around 5gb in size. The update was delayed due to the Xbox's certification scheme that is in place to protect the console. This means that PC players have already had the update and some Xbox players have been asking why. Wildcard Studios have addressed some of these concerns "We send our patches through to ...

For those looking to take advantage of cross play compatibility between PC and and Xbox One for ARK: Survival Evolved will have to wait a little while longer.  While it was originally set for December, we will have till 2017.  Luckily it's going to be January 2017.  Developer Studio Wildcard lead developer Jeremy Stieglitz explained that it “requires reformatting ARK’s application handling to work with Universal Windows Platform."  So look to have Play Anywhere capability next month. Studio Wildcard co-founder Jesse Rapczack also confirmed once again Windows 10 owners will be able to set up their own dedicated servers to run ... Read More »
Survival sim Ark: Survival Evolved is to get a serious content update soon, developer Studio Wildcard announced today. They’re calling it the TEK Tier, and the update is being pitched as endgame content that will reward players who really put the work in. Rewarded with what? Outlandishly cool sci-fi armour, weapons, gear and structures – which is literally a world away from the dinosaur-based survival in the main game at present. According to the developers: The TEK Tier will put players in power armor granting them advanced abilities, and add powerful TEK saddles with mounted energy weapons to the capabilities ...

As Gamers we are a divisive lot. We have very differing views on a great many things and are not adverse to a little friendly discussion. There is one thing however that unites nearly all of us, and that is our dislike of cheaters. Those who people who use little (or large) tricks and fiddles to get around the restrictions of the game to gain an unfair advantage on us that work hard, playing the game properly are the scourge of many an online game. This is something that the people at Wildcard Studios have struggled with on their game ... Read More »
Last week, Studio Wildcard surprised us all with an expansion to ARK: Survival Evolved. ARK: Scorched Earth is a fantasy (like the original Ark isn’t fantasy?) version of the original survival experience. Mixed with some of the original dinosaurs are some weird and wonderful creatures that could only exist in the fevered minds of the games creators, and many from myth and legend; Rock elementals, dragons, huge beetles, small vultures, and lots more. Just because we're tough as nails, and have practically lived inside ARK since it joined the Game Preview programme, we explored Scorched Earth in single player mode ... Read More »
It is no secret that Ark for the Xbox has always suffered with performance and a low resolution. The update which is anticipated for release on Thursday September 1st will bring with it a full 720p 3D rendering and 1080p UI performance boost, this will hopefully make the game a little easier on the eyes. https://twitter.com/arkjeremy/status/770160114921828352 In other words, the game world and all the creatures will render at 1280×720 while the user interface will be at 1920×1080. The 729 update will bring all of the current content from the PC and all smaller patches. All content will be made ... Read More »
Xbox One gamers still waiting for the next Ark: Survival Evolved update are going to have to keep waiting (and surviving). While their PC-gaming cousins got fresh content last week, it seems that players on console have yet to find out when the promised content will drop. Chief among the updates Xboxers are waiting for is the PrimitivePlus mod, which adds tons of new crafting items – and that’s the reason for the current delay in getting it shipped out. Jeremy Stieglitz, Lead Developer on the game, discussed the upcoming update in the SurvivetheArk forum. According to the man in ... Read More »
As many people already know, Ark: Survival Evolved caught a strange bug with the last major update for the Xbox One, single player / player dedicated and none dedicated servers (and in some cases official servers) would randomly crash and force close the game, causing the game to revert to its last save. As posted previously, this week Studio Wildcard thought they fixed it, but only fixed parts of it. On their website survivetheark.com they invited players to tell them exactly what happened and received plenty of response. The good news is they think they have finally solved the problem! ...
