What is ARK: Survival Evolved?

As a man or woman stranded, naked, freezing, and starving on the unforgiving shores of a mysterious island called ARK, use your skill and cunning to kill or tame and ride the plethora of leviathan dinosaurs and other primeval creatures roaming the land. Hunt, harvest resources, craft items, grow crops, research technologies, and build shelters to withstand the elements and store valuables, all while teaming up with (or preying upon) hundreds of other players to survive, dominate... and escape!

The game was released on August 29th, 2017 after being over two years in 'Early Access' and is available on Steam, the Xbox Live Marketplace, PlayStation 4, mobile devices, the Nintendo Switch, and the Epic Games Store with continually new updates in the open-world dinosaur survival game.

Released - September 14th, 2021 - Minor version update for server

  • Fixed an exploit
  • Refactored Tek Dedicated Storage. This is a rework of the structure for server optimization, it should improve stability across the board due to huge memory-savings on large/active servers. It will generally function the same. You can still deposit and withdraw, but there are a few changes to be noted:
  1. You'll now be able to slot cap yourself directly using the Transfer All button when using the dedicated storage and it will ignore your weight.
  2. You'll no longer see an inventory inside the dedicated storage box when opening it, don't worry, your items are still there.
  3. You'll no longer be able to popcorn (Spamming the O to drop items) from the dedicated storage directly, (but you can now transfer a slot cap into your own inventory and popcorn from there).
