Ark: Survival Evolved going underground in Aberration

The first expansion for craft-o-sandbox survive 'em up Ark: Survival Evolved [official site] arrived while the game was still in early access, which was a funny move. But since Ark properly, fully launched this week, hey here comes another expansion. Developers Studio Wildcard today announced Aberration, which will explore the caves of a busted Ark filled with weird monsters. Along with new creatures like that…

Ark: Survival Evolved’s launch trailer meets otter friend

Sandbox craft-o-survival mega-hit Ark: Survival Evolved [official site] stomps to a full launch next week, after two years in early access. After that long, ah, sure, schedules will get a little jumbled. So here's the launch trailer a few days early, which I'm told reveals some of the mystery of why loads of folks are thrown onto an island filled with dinosaurs, mythical animals, spaceman…

Ark: Survival Evolved delayed to the end of August

The dinosaur island sandbox Ark: Survival Evolved [official site] was due to leave early access and launch in full next week, but it won't. Developers Studio Wildcard announced over the weekend that they've delayed the launch from August 8th to the 29th, because things took longer than expected. That's game-making all right. Over the next few weeks, in the run-up to the actual proper launch…

Ark devs cancel mass server wipe, add new servers instead

Dino-themed survival sandbox, Ark: Survival Evolved [official site], is definitely not getting a PvP server wipe before release. That's pretty much what the Studio Wildcard devs said last year but behind-the-scenes they recently decided a mass wipe was in order and were on the verge of announcing the digital extinction event to the public. That's no longer happening.Instead, players unhappy with the current state of existing official…

Ark: Survival Evolved leaving early access in August

After two years in early access, the dinosaur-riding sandbox survive-o-craft 'em up Ark: Survival Evolved [official site] will leave early access and launch on August 8th. It's not clear how much this will actually change the game, as creators Studio Wildcard say they still plan to keep adding things after launch, but perhaps they'll finally sort out Ark's performance problems. And if wishes were raptors,…

Ark: Survival Evolved adds huge hyena and poo boost

Huge hyenas, wall-crawling reptiles, megasloths, toilets, and more have hit Ark: Survival Evolved [official site] in the early access dinosaur island survive 'em up's latest content update. I'm sorry to say you cannot ride the corpse-devouring big dog, only become its best friend for ever and ever and love it and walk it every day.I'm still fascinated by how Ark turns real(ish) creatures into video…

Ark: Survival Evolved now paying modders to mod

The makers of dinosaur-y sandbox survival game Ark: Survival Evolved [official site] have launched a scheme sponsoring mod development with actual real cash money. Every month they'll pay fifteen modders (and teams) $4,000 (£3.2k), with a view to potentially including their finished mods in the full game - as they have with others before. The first round includes everything from moonbases to islands inspired by…

Ark marks Thanksgiving with murderturkeys, megasnails

A cute new megasnail has arrived in Ark: Survival Evolved [official site] and it is useful for... what, would you guess? You've got it: Achatina Limusegnis mucus can be used as glue. That's an easy one. What about the new ceratopsid Pachyrhinosaurus Mitisaura? If you guessed that it emits a calming scent when threatened, you've cheated and already looked at the answer you filthy rotter.…

Ark: Survival Evolved adding Iron Man suits, cyberdinos

Iron Man-like supersuits of power armour are coming to Ark: Survival Evolved [official site], developers Studio Wildcard have announced, as part of the end-game 'Tek' tech tier. You might begin the multiplayer survival sandbox wearing grubby underpants and waving rocks and sticks, but eventually players will be supersprinting, jetpacking, superpunching in power armour, and riding dinosaurs caked in cyberguns like Dino-Riders toys. But it's not…

Ark Adds Procedural Worlds And Airbag Amphibians

I am delighted every time a new Ark: Survival Evolved [official site] update turns a dinosaur into a wacky gadget. From Archaeopteryx hang gliders to sauropods you can build mobile fortresses upon, the sandbox survival game has a fascinating and violent Flintstones logic. Procedurally-generated worlds are probably the biggest feature in last week's update but I'm more interested in its new giant salamander. Can you…

Ark Update: Archaeopteryx Gliders, More Optimisations

Ark: Survival Evolved [official site] caused a kerfuffle recently when the open-world dinosurvival game launched a £15 expansion despite still being in early access. Even an unsatisfying response from developers Studio Wildcard didn't stop the Scorched Earth add-on from topping the Steam charts, mind. Anyway, now Wildcard are back to free Ark content updates, boshing in two new flying dinos and bringing more desperately-needed performance…

Deserts & Dragons: Ark’s Scorched Earth Expansion Out

How do you tell the difference between a Bactrian camel and a dromedary? The Bactrian has two humps, which look like a B, while the dro- yeah, they're different species. Different types of camel. No, they live in entirely different places too. They- no, I just thought you might like to know. I don't know, maybe it'd be a pub quiz question. I don't know,…

Mod Me Up! Ark: Survival Of The Fittest No Longer F2P

Now I'm no Tricky Dicky Dawkins - I've never watched dogs 69ing, for starters - but I do know the definition of, and delineation between, species is hazy. Consider the case of Ark: Survival of the Fittest [official site]. The multiplayer Battle Royale 'em up started as a mode for crafty survival sandbox Ark: Survival Evolved. A subspecies, right? Then it was spun off into…

Titanosaurus Wreck: Ark Update Adds Dino & New Biome

Studio Wildcard describe the latest dino to breech the shores of Ark: Survival Evolved's [official site] fantastical technoisland as "extremely rare." Which is just as well, I reckon, because, well, have you seen the size of the blighter? The Titanosaur enters the multiplayer survival 'em up courtesy of its v243 update, which also extends the existing Snow Biome and introduces the new Redwood Forest area.…

Ark Adds Dino Big Enough To Carry A Fortress, Also Poo Flinging Monkeys

The thing I remember most strongly from the Ark: Survival Evolved [official site] segment at E3 was the ridiculously massive Titanosaur which you can build on and wondering how long before someone modded that to reference the Discworld arrangement of the space turtle A'Tuin and elephants. Oh, there's also the introduction of the upcoming Redwood Biome and an explanation of why/how you can fling poop.Now…

Ark: Survival Evolved Goes A Bit Fantasy With The Center

Given that Ark: Survival Evolved [official site] is a multiplayer survival game where dinosaurs and mythical beasts roam a technoisland, you might expect its world to be a little more... unreal. In which case, oooh! Check out the weird impossible fantasy land added free with yesterdays update. The Center is a huge world with hovering mountains, unlikely grand rock formations, ancient underground lavaruins, underground forests,…

The Best ARK: Survival Evolved Mods

Since storming the sprawling and ever-changing plains of Early Access last year, ARK: Survival Evolved [official site] has grown into a pretty comprehensive survival sandbox filled with crafting, cooking, foraging and, of course, frantically pegging it in the opposite direction from hungry dinosaurs. If you want to survive beyond the next localised extinction event, Matt’s beginner’s tips and resource guide make for essential reading, so…

ARK: Survival Evolved Encounters Legal Troubles

Dino survival game ARK: Survival Evolved [official site] has been a huge success for developers Studio Wildcard but clouds are gathering and those clouds look an awful lot like lawyers. Issues surrounding the game's origins and the soliciting of staff from Dungeon Defenders creators Trendy Entertainment will be heard in court next month, report Kotaku. If the outcome of that hearing grants the injunction sought…
