Community Crunch 272: Plushie Giveaway Winners, EVO Event, and More!

The entire team has been having a blast and enjoying all the Genesis 2 content you’ve been sharing. Thank you for sharing your experiences with us! As the team continues to iterate on some bugs from the latest launch, we wanted to take this time and talk about something we’ve seen across the minds of the survivor community:

Though Genesis 2 marks the end of the journey and the end of paid content for ARK 1, in terms of new content and new experiences: there is much more in the works! ARK’s thriving community is full of talent and we’ll be tapping into that talent for another community map to bring into the official fold later in the year. In addition to new maps, we’re continuing to support the live-game with quality-of-life additions, TLC patches, updates, and fixes to pesky bugs. New experiences will continue to roll in with community events and in-game events. Summer Bash anyone 😉?

Even though Genesis 2 concludes an epic journey we all embarked on, we are looking forward to the next one!

Last week we showed you how to tame a Maewing, but it might help to learn how to trap one. The trap master, captain fatdog, is back at it!

After you’ve trapped and tamed Maewing, what’s next? Building a perfect hatchery!
