Hundreds of dinosaurs were horrified to learn this week that human invaders in Ark: Survival Evolved weren’t merely eking out an existence on their island but were absolutely dominating it with piles of ill-gotten weapons.
Reports have been coming in concerning a major duping exploit in the early access title. By taking advantage of this loophole, players had been mass producing goods and throwing the balance of the title out of whack.
As a result, Wildcard elected to do a complete wipe on the game’s PvP servers yesterday. “You have our word that we’re going to do everything we can to make sure that something like this doesn’t happen again,” the studio posted. “It’s extremely painful for us to see you guys being frustrated and upset, we hate this, and it’s not something we want to repeat again, as we’re sure none of you guys do either.”
Massively OP’s own Jef Reahard scoped out the game last week, calling it “enjoyable” and “absolutely worth the 25 bucks it’ll cost you during the Steam summer sale.”
