With ARK’s new free PvP mode, Survival of the Fittest, available to all, you have nothing holding you back from trying out the game. In fact, there’s even incentive for you to do so because, because today the first round of the game’s Survivor League has begun.
Survivor League is a monthly PvP ladder that will end up ranking the 40 best players in the entire game. Those players will each get a cut of a $64,800 cash pool, including a first place prize in four categories for a whopping $3,500. The studio strongly cautioned players against trying to cheat their way to the top, saying that this will result in a quick disqualification.
The devs also reported on another project they’ve been tackling, which is to give ARK’s cave system another pass to bring out the oohs and ahhs from spelunkers. This month’s digest wrapped up with a set of community Q&A which tackled titanosaur poop, hot air balloons, telescopes, and other serious topics.
