The ARK: Sponsored Mod Program has launched! The ARK Dev Kit is an important feature of ARK and now it will be imbedded even more with this step. The modders will be supported with different approaches (contests, help, incorporating in game, working & partnering with them).
Till now there are over 2.500 Mods in the Steam Workshop. Mods are a huge reason that ARK is still a game with lots of players.
