Our next major core-content release this year will be Aberration Ascended —an eerily beautiful, derelict, malfunctioning ARK with an elaborate underground biome system, and the all-new next chapter of Bob’s Tall Tales. To give this special map the attention it deserves, we have moved the launch to September 4th. Our team is refining the process to complete the remastering of the content as efficiently as possible while maintaining our quality. We apologize for the delay in bringing the beloved Aberration to you, but it will be worth the wait!

In the meantime, there’s a lot more to look forward to! We have several additions on the horizon: the Summer Bash event, a new ARK Additions creature coming to the base game, and lots of fun Club ARK updates. Stay tuned!

Download & play new custom content created by players, including new maps, creatures, items, and game modes, through a dedicated new Mod-browser 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!

This season, Monarky is taking over the Center one grid at a time. Teams of four are divided by biomes and can initially only explore and build within one grid of the map. Each week, they compete to earn more grid squares, expanding their territory and aiming to conquer the entire map. However, they must be cautious—venturing into unclaimed grids drains their health, and entering enemy grids spells trouble.

In Monarky VI: Grid Wars, biomes battle biomes. Teams must make do with their initial grid space until they win new crowns through grueling (but fun!) events. Failure leads to the consequences of Loser Island. At the end of the season, only one team will stand above the rest. So, who do you think will outwit, outplay, and outlast?
