ARK’s ruins and ice cave and arena, oh my!

This might come as a shock to ARK: Survival Evolved players, but Studio Wildcard has announced more content for the survival game, this time in the form of three new environments. OK, so it’s no surprise at all; the studio is known for pouring content into the game at a fairly quick pace. Soon players will have the chance to explore a beautiful ice cave filled with (deadly) jumping puzzles, a humid, swampy arena where the Broodmother now resides, and various ruins (which devs say will play a key role in ARK’s backstory) scattered about the landscape. This new content will be showing up in game in the next few weeks, but you can get a gander at the new environs in the gallery below.

I keep running around wondering what to do lol.   I need to sit down and peruse some “how to play” guides.   Gorgeous environment, awesome dinosaurs.   I wish there was more than 70 people allowed per server.

cures Damonvile Sorenthaz Depends on the game tbh.  Some still can generate plenty of hype out of Early Access.  Others quietly exit Early Access and yeah people forget about it then.  
Or others stay stuck in perpetual EA like Starbound, which made at least a few million in crowdfunding and sales yet has been so freaking quiet and had like half a year or more with no new “stable” content updates.  Like the whole idea feels silly to me because they basically have Early Access’s “stable” releases for updates (basically beta), and then they have unstable releases (basically the beta of beta) and then they have the nightly releases (like the alpha of beta).  That’s just overdoing it…
I imagine ARK for example will get plenty of launch hype.  Same goes with Early Access MMOs.  
Not every Early Access game dies out after its initial launch.  Just depends on how well it’s handled.

Damonvile Sorenthaz thats so 2013. 
two things about early access titles: they never ‘release’. they have their hype-peak during an unfinished state and then vanish into oblivion. want to take part? buy as soon as you hear about it. next week we will have another ‘early access’ game ;)

blackcatcrosses They have said they want to get content in then focus on performance. They still have optimization tweaks frequently though, this next update should have do a lot to help with the amount of jitters you get when loading in areas. 

They have a Release window for June, I bet by like march there will be a shift from content to performance.

DeadlyAccurate Sorenthaz  Yeah that’s kind of my mentality.  I just don’t see the need to buy it right now if I can get it later on when I’d be more likely to play it.  *shrug*  But maybe my mind will change in the next few days.

Gylnne Sorenthaz Usually Steam’s biggest sale is always in the winter around Christmas/New Year’s, not Black Friday/Cyber Monday.  They always have a big event and then a ton of sales with daily special sales (i.e. say Witcher 3 is 50% off ’til the end of it, but one day it’s suddenly 75% off or something crazy like that, just as an example) as well as flash sales and so on.  
And usually that’s when their best deals come out as well.  Like I imagine November releases like Fallout 4 might even see a possible discount (not by too much but still by some amount).

Damonvile Sorenthaz Pretty much this. Everyone I know who bought this game in EA is already done with it. At this point I have a higher chance playing it with returned players upon launch with the added bonus of it being somewhat feature-complete. I have a feeling this game will get finished before H1Z1 and DayZ too, seems like they actually want to do something with this title rather than have it eternally be in testing.
