Community Crunch 412: Server Transfers, Mods Spotlight, and More!

Hey Survivors!

We’ve got some quick updates for you as we prepare for the upcoming launch of The Center and Shastasaurus! Most importantly, we’re still on schedule. The new and remastered content will be coming your way on June 4th with the trailer, and we’ll keep you posted as we get closer to go time!

We’re really excited about the launch; The Center was the first non-canonical map added to ARK: Survival Evolved, and it holds a special place in our history and our hearts. But… needless to say, it had a look that only a mother, or in this case, evilmrfrank, could love. So, the team and evilmrfrank have been giving it the glow-up it deserves, and we can’t wait to see everyone’s reaction next week!

So obviously, word’s gotten around about a poll. Let’s dive into that first.

Server Transfers, yep. When are we opening Scorched Earth server transfers? Here’s the thing: we had initially planned for a 60-day period (a long, long time ago)… But as we drew closer to that timeframe, we realized, “Hey, it’s pretty close to The Center,” and we know a lot of you really love a fresh new map experience, so we’re deciding to push it back. Not a lot, just a little bit. And that’s what this poll is about. We’re going to give you two dates and let you vote on Twitter (yeah we still call it that) to decide which day we’ll enable complete Server Transfers onto Scorched Earth.

Click here to vote!

Your options are either June 14th or June 28th. Pick one! The date with the most votes by Monday wins!

Good News EVERYONE! It’s finally cleared certification! This means that we’ll be able to get it in your hands next week with the launch of The Center on June 4th. We’ll have more modding updates to share in the future, but we’re really excited to get this out there for all platforms, and needless to say, we’ll be opening up the Official Premium Mod servers for PlayStation Players, too!

On April 8th, we deployed a new type of server across the network (for the various game types) that we refer to as “Expire” (which is what you can search for in the session filter).

These servers will be online until 10 am PST / 1 pm EST on June 1st. We’re preemptively using our allocation for The Center to host some additional sessions that players can travel onto to farm, tame, and experience the Scorched Earth Gameplay. The same transfer restrictions apply in that you are only able to download your character, but you can freely take anything off. This is to help reduce load off some of the other servers, or provide players an option for those who just want to jump onto Scorched Earth temporarily.

Please note that these servers will no longer exist after 10 am PST / 1 pm EST on June 1st, so if you intend to use them, remember to transfer your items/creatures/characters off before that date, as nothing will be saved beyond that time period.

For the full list of the Expire servers, click here.

Download & play new custom content created by players, including new maps, creatures, items, and game modes, through a dedicated new Mod-bowser directly within the game. Enjoy an endless stream of new ARK content as the creativity and talent of the community is fully unleashed for the first time across gaming platforms and stay tuned as we spotlight more Cross-Platform Mods each week!
