All NEW – TEK Underwater Bases, TEK Teleporter & TEK Power Generator

The Patch 256.0 brought some amazing new features for the TEK Tier – end game content.

You can now build your base underwater with ventilators to fill the rooms with oxygen. With the help of Air-Locks players can enter without flooding the base.

With the TEK Teleport you can get to far places on the islands very fast, but it costs a lot of TEK-Items to obtain it.

With the TEK Power generator you can power wireless any Tribe electrical structures and TEK structures.

The TEK Mosa Saddle was added too! Let´s go and fireing your lasers!

ARK: Survival Evolved Rollback and increased Rates

Because of an outage of amazon web services, including the CrossARK-Transfer System, there will be a mayor rollback of all Official Servers to right before the incident happened. Sadly all CrossARK Storage-Items will be deleted due to an duping problem.

To make up for the lost time and effort the rates are increased, including mating, breeding, egg hatching, harvesting and experience for the rest of the week.



ARK: Sponsored Mod Program

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.
