The last few weekends we could enjoy double experience rates on all official servers. A while back, this resulted in the announcement that double taming, harvesting and experience rates will be permanent on all official servers. Starting from the “next major patch”, which we assume is v253, these double rates will become the new base rates. This means that if you were playing on a server with custom rates, or single player, you will end up with double the rates after the patch. To give an example: let’s say you used to play on a server with 6x taming. When the patch is released thatRead More →


A new devkit release, so a new devkit preview for you guys! This time a lot of new creatures could be found, including some of the ones coming in patch v253. Other than that, a new scissors “weapon” was found in the devkit, and a tek tier “Proxycube”. This post also includes a Phoenix for Scorched Earth, which was already available in the previous devkit release, but we forgot to add it to the post at that time. Please remember that devkit sizes often do not represent the actual size. This is especially the case for the Thylacoleo and Tusoteuthis, as they are both humongous inRead More →


Now that ARK: Survival Evolved has been released on PlayStation 4, or will be released shortly if it isn’t December 6th in your region yet, you’ll also be able to make use of admin commands on your own servers or in singleplayer! To make it easy for you to find out what’s possible, we will provide you with access to all the commands and how to use them. Based on what you want, we point you to the right places. It’s for instance possible to spawn in dinosaurs and items, but also to fly around the map or enable godmode to walk around without theRead More →

With the ARK: Fear Evolved 2 halloween patch in sight (Current ETA: October 25), we will be seeing our old friend DodoRex again. However, we will also see a new horrific dodo creation: the DodoWyvern. The latest version of the ARK devkit already contains some models for this new creature, which we will show you below. Unfortunately the model isn’t fully colored yet, so we are only able to show you the wings in color. Devkit model Size comparison Although the devkit size does not necessarily represent the size the creature will be when released, it seems to follow the model and size of the regular wyvern.

It’s been a while, but today a new devkit version was released! We dove into it immediately and found some interesting new stuff. One of the most notable things are the “Endbosses”. It seems that the tek tier will bring more than just items and structures, as the endbosses contain a lot of lights and moving particles. Keep in mind that these might not be the real endbosses but could just be an animation when the spawn in or something; anyway it’s still interesting to see. Furthermore a lot of new creatures were also found, and a tek tier rifle and rex helmet. Enjoy the pictures and letRead More →


Coming weekend, September 24-25th, ARK: Survival Evolved players will get double experience, taming and harvesting rates on all official servers! This special weekend is the first and will be available to all users, which means both PC and Xbox One can get in on the fun. Make sure to stack up on your resources and go on a taming spree coming weekend, as we don’t know when (and if) there will be something like this again. Also, it’s the perfect time to focus on those long tames that you normally cannot do due to time constraints (I’m looking at you, Mosasaurus tame). Keep in mind that thisRead More →

A big update was released for the Survive ARK Companion app (Android, iOS). The update includes a lot of new features, including a dark theme, dino harvesting & drops and information regarding the new Scorched Earth DLC. To make it easier to see what’s exactly been added to the app, I’ve decided to create an image that shows the most important changes (which you can find at the top). For the exact changes, you can check out the patch notes. Of course the companion app will be updated with even more features. To give a small update, these are some of the features I’m currently workingRead More →
