Launch ARK Survival Ascended

Find and Tame Pyromane!

We are currently working on a major update for The Center, which includes numerous fixes for visual issues, polish, level design, and bugs, such as an issue with Pyromane Breeding on servers, the inability to build in some spots around the map, and the unsupported items issue.

Many of these fixes have been queued up in advance, but due to maintaining cross-platform compatibility and certification requirements, we had to wait to release them. Now that the release is out the door, we’ll be working on getting this patch out next week.

“Cannot Download. 3 Unsupported Items.” – If you’re experiencing this issue, we have a quick workaround available until the patch is released:

Download your character from the cloud onto an Island

Transfer your character directly to The Center server of your choice

Note: This issue can occur when going via the cloud, so make sure you’re doing a direct transfer.

We’ll be monitoring reports for new issues and solving them as they come in! And, as always, we will continue to monitor official server capacity with a view to adding new servers if needed.

Thanks again for all your support. We hope you enjoy the new content!

Conquest servers are being introduced to ARK: Survival Ascended by Snail Games. Conquest is a new PvP player experience for PC players which focuses on large-scale PvP while avoiding the problem of mega tribes. Increased rates will allow tribes to set up and establish themselves quickly and enable them to rebuild after potential losses instead of being wiped completely. The official Conquest servers will start on June 13th!

If you need any support during the Conquest season, join the Conquest Enforcement’s Discord.

5x XP, Harvesting, Taming, and Breeding (imprint, maturation, hatch/gestation)

0.5x Mating Interval

Tribes are set to 50 players max

Servers have a maximum player count of 75

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!
