ASE: Official servers will be deactivated (end of September)

The end of the official ARK Server Evolved network has been set for September 29, 2023 at 13:00 PST / 16:00 EST. From this point on, the official servers will no longer be available, and new servers (from Nitrado) for the new ARK version called "ARK Survival Ascendent" or ASA will go online in October (provided Wildcard can meet the deadline for the major upgrade, but the official servers will be shut down in any case).

Zukunft von ARK (Update from 8. April)

Today, just before April 1, Wildcard released the future and roadmap of their ARK Survival Evolved franchise. ARK 2.0 will be delayed to the end of 2024 and ARK 1.5 (Unreal Engine 5.x) will not be compatible with ARK 1!

ARK Survival Evolved SALES

Stranded on a mysterious island as a naked man/woman freezing and hungry, you must hunt, gather, craft items, plant fruit and build a shelter to survive. Use skill and cunning to kill, hatch, and ride live dinosaurs and primeval creatures on ARK, and team up with hundreds of players or play locally!

The following features have been in the game since the Day 1 Early Access release. We have many more aspects and refinements planned for ongoing development. Here's what you can experience in ARK so far:


Mythos: Outgoing Reliable Buffer Overflow

Who doesn't know the annoying message, Network Failure Message: Outgoing Reliable Buffer Overflow! BANG! solutions are mostly to learn only the engrams which are needed regularly (not all of them) and don't make your own inventory too full. However, there is no fixed limit or border here, because simply said the game client of ARK with the loading of the relevant data (eg your content of the inventory) does not progress fast enough.

Dragon (Beta)

Dragon was vanilla. 19 Rexes and 1 Yuti. Rexe had between 28k and 32k HP and Damage was at 600-800. Saddles we had the first half simple 60-80s and the rest then 130-180s values. 4 Rexes died. Luck had that the Dragon could not fly off and I have very (too) late with the Yuti "screamed". Players we were two and the one has shot with Shotgun and Minigun.


ARK: The Survival Stories

Welcome to ARK: The Survival Stories! This is the first of many, and it's also my first time doing something like this. The survival stories follow the direct records of the survivors of ARK, as I try to show exactly what happened.
