What an intriguing discovery survivors, what could this be?

Aberration Countdown Is On!



The wait is almost over! Aberration will have a simultaneous release across all three platforms at 8 AM Pacific Time on the 12th.

In “ARK: Aberration” Survivors will find themselves waking up on a derelict, malfunctioning ARK with an elaborate underground biome system, where they will face exotic new challenges unlike anything before: extreme radioactive sunlight and environmental hazards, ziplines, wingsuits, climbing gear, cave dwellings, charge-batteries, and far more, along with a stable of extraordinary new creatures await within the mysterious depths. But beware the ‘Nameless’: unrelenting, Element-infused humanoids which have evolved into vicious light-hating monstrosities! You’ll uncover the ultimate secrets of the ARKs, and discover what the future holds in store for those strong and clever enough to survive!

To help ease the pain of waiting over the next few days, feast your ears on Aberration's theme song, created by Gareth Coker.

New Skins from Extra Life!



One of our rewards for collecting donations during our Extra Life charity stream was to get a skin of your choice put into the game. Because our fundraising event was such an overwhelming success we decided to award the top four donators instead of just the top one. On December 12th, four new hat skins will be added to the game.

These skins were chosen by the top fund raisers: x3Belle, PepperJC, windxiv, and Dakhar, and the skins are the: Cute Dino Helmet Mask, Chili Mask, Otter Mask, and Scary Skull Mask respectively. These can be earned by defeating the boss on Aberration. Thank you once again to x3Belle, PepperJC, windxiv, & Dakhar, and to everyone who participated in our Extra Life event!

Sponsored Mod Program Update!

It’s another exciting month in the Sponsored Mod Program! The mod entering the program this month is not one that we think many people are aware of. The modder, B.Cheers, has been around the modding community for quite some time. Some of you might remember some of his older work like Ark Futurism or Storage+. Without further ado, let’s get into it.





This month we will be sponsoring ARK Futurism Final Existence. What’s really cool about this mod is that these are all custom assets made by B.Cheers. There’s no doubt a ton of work went into making all the content that’s in this mod. At the moment, there’s a mostly complete structure set that uses a half wall design. This offers more flexibility to all the ARK builders. More importantly, there are mechs that can equip armor and weapons! With the addition of Tek Tier, I knew someone would take it to the next level.



B.Cheers has a development tracker if you’d like to keep up to date with what he’s working on and things that are to come. We believe this mod has a really promising future and might serve as a supplement to your Tek Tier existence. Don’t take our word for it, be sure to check it out for yourself!

Mysterious Mysteries: Introducing ??????? & Sponsored Mods Update!

What an intriguing discovery survivors, can you guess what creature it is?

Sponsored Mods!

It’s the time of the month where we introduce some new and exciting mods from the community! This month we are happy to introduce some pretty unique mods to the program. During the course of the program, we’ve seen our share of maps, structure mods, and even a total conversion. We get excited when we see game modes like Urban Deathmatch or really well thought out ideas like Zoology get published!

Urban Death Match



We’ve always thought that ARK could serve as a good foundation for a team deathmatch mod. Those that aren’t new to the modding scene might remember Tribe Wars and the pre-match that started in a team deathmatch setting. Urban Deathmatch might be the choice for those who are looking for a similar game mode.

Spawn areas are predetermined and each spawn area has six crates that can be used to gear up your players. Be sure to give this a look if you are looking for some fun events to host on your server. Since the mod is a map extension, it shouldn't affect any of your existing saves! Be sure to check it out!

Zoology



We were really impressed when I got to check out Zoology. It’s one of those mod that just makes sense! Zoology adds a new element of discovery to the creatures you encounter on The Island. Ultimately, it changes how they act and behave and adds new and refreshing ways of interacting with wild and tamed creatures.

There’s a lot going on in this mod but essentially, wild and tamed creatures, have a level of morale and can suffer from stress, are intelligent enough (some of them) to flee from their predators, and predators will only hunt when hungry. It’s like a total conversion for the behavioural system of creatures!!

That’s all for this month. We’ll continue to keep an eye out for mods that are original and creative. We sincerely appreciate all the effort we are seeing from the modding community.
