ARK: Survival Evolved will soon incorporate player-made mod content

Big news for ARK: Survival Evolved today on multiple fronts. For starters, the game now claims more than a million Xbox One copies sold — that’s in addition to almost 4 million on PC. The PlayStation 4 launch is set for Q4 of this year, at which time all three platforms will see the game fully launched.

To celebrate, Studio Wildcard has announced a mod program for both PC and Xbox intended to bring elite player-made mods into the game for everyone. The first two maps plucked from the community’s braintrust will release next month and this summer and massively increase the size of the game:

“Designed by community member Ben Burkart, The Center adds an over-the-top, fantasy-themed map that doubles the size of the current game and is more varied than the original ARK map, with tons of new biomes, dungeons, floating islands, end-of-the-world waterfalls, massive ancient ruins, along with other wonders to explore and secrets to find. Drawn completely by hand without any auto-generated content, The Center is a massive increase in the game’s official playable content and is free to both PC and Xbox One players.

In the case of Primitive Plus, players are challenged to use only wood and stone without the benefit of advanced metals to create weapons such as guns. A whole new set of items and detailed new mechanics focus the player on ‘primitive’ survival, which fits snugly in the world of ARK. Primitive Plus will be playable as a functionality mod on all official ARK maps.”

When they release this new content, it really will be like getting another game.  I paid around $20 for this game, way back last June, and now it will be like I am getting a whole new game for that amount.  This is the first game, that I have played in a long time that has kept me interested.  Studio Wildcard is all about making a  great game and making it so that anyone will want to play.  They don’t have to do that but they are. :D  Their reward is that they are making a boatload of money.  Our reward is that we are getting a very fun, very quality game to play. :D
