ABOUT THE GAME
As a man or woman stranded naked, freezing and starving on the shores of a mysterious island called ARK, you must hunt, harvest resources, craft items, grow crops, research technologies, and build shelters to withstand the elements. Use your cunning and resources to kill or tame the leviathan dinosaurs and other primeval creatures roaming the land, and team up with or prey on hundreds of other players to survive, dominate… and escape!
Sorry for the one-time wipe eveyone, our backend tool to maintain the savedata backups accidentally clobbered the files when we were doing the update, hence the wipe. Now we’ve added two layers of redundant backup, so this will never happen agai. To be clear, we do not plan to do World wipes throughout Early Access, if we can help it!
Secondly, if you update your 1.60 clients you will now have a better functioning session list ( Official and Unofficial Sessions are now listed separately for better search results ), and also the Music slider now properly affects all the game menu musics.
More to come … yes… tonight… more 🙂 🙂 🙂
Stay tuned for the first Mod Map and Mod Tools tomorrow, “Raptor Rapture”… we’ll see how battle-hardened your Survivors are then, won’t we? 😀
Finally, regarding performance, it is top priority here for the days ahead. Every day you will see performance gains in the daily updates. Period. Look forward to gains tomorrow, gains Thursday, Friday, and beyond. We have some incredibly talented engineers at Wildcard, and they are not going to rest until every last cpu and gpu cycle is utilized from your computer to the absolute maximum benefit. Get ready, because it’s going to be a lot of fun 😀
