Whats this game even about?

Recommended Posts

I don't think of it as just a sandbox game. Yes, it is a survival game, but there is so much more. Please see below for things you can do in the game:

 

Player vs Environment:

  • tame dinosaurs (many different kinds for different fuctions. Some are resource collectors, some are carnivores used for protection, etc.)
  • build houses (wood, stone, metal. There are even mods out there where you can build glass houses and castles)
  • It's your basic survival game that just got way cooler with lots more stuff and things to do.
  • ARK at ADK: participate in events and get in game prizes and real cash prizes, like google play gift cards, paypal gift cards, steam gift cards, etc.

Player vs Player (where it becomes more than a survival game):

  • tame dinosaurs (many different kinds for different fuctions. Some are resource collectors, some are carnivores used for protection, etc.)
  • build houses (wood, stone, metal. There are even mods out there where you can build glass houses and castles)
  • build weapons & optics (pistols, rifles, shotguns, bow & arrows, C4, tripwires, smoke grenades, gas grenades, scopes, auto turrets, ballistas, etc.)
  • use the weapons you build to fight other tribes. (Imagine CS:GO meets DayZ meets H1Z1 meets minecraft meets Jurassic Park)
  • It's your basic survival game that just got way cooler with lots more stuff and things to do.
  • ARK at ADK: participate in events and get in game prizes and real cash prizes, like google play gift cards, paypal gift cards, steam gift cards, etc.

There are also many, many more things you can do. Just hop by ARK on teamspeak and ask an admin or find me. The admin staff is always willing to help and answer any questions players have. Even if you decide the game isn't for you, please feel free to hang out with us on teamspeak anyway. Everyone is welcome! Hope to see you around!!! :)

So far, the games "story" has not really been released or talked about much. All you know is that you wake up on this weird island and have to survive by building and defending against dinos. You can even tame a large quantity of them. Once you start playing you will notice this three obelisks in the sky. They look alien... definitely not (modern) man-made. With that in mind, many people speculate we were put on this island as a kind of test from some kind of alien race. Thumbs up for a "Most Dangerous Game" style of gameplay. I would definitely like to see this build into the lore.

This is an amazing game. Once you die 5001 times and start getting to a higher level with bigger and meaner dinos, you transition into taming bigger and meaner dinos, painting your dinos, building elaborate fortresses. And just when you think you've done it all the developers of something new to the game.

We have a 20x gather rate, so base building isn't too 'grindy'.  Placement of some objects is iffy, sometimes objects place just a touch off and you have to demolish that one section and rebuild it.  Hitting E before placing will often help with that.  Otherwise it's a pretty solid system for base building.

@[member='Slothsrfake'] I'm glad you are interested in ARK. Like WarderKeeju said, you can gather on the server fairly quickly. There are occasional pieces that don't snap together right but with the gather rate turned up to 20X, as you level up and get better animals, it doesn't pose an issue. I have built buildings, got bored with them and tore them down just to build something different. Additionally, as the developers work on the game, they are adding new and interesting building items for us to use. You can do everything from making a small cabin in a snowy area to making a castle on a cliff overlooking a beach. We also have new items in the game where you can make a greenhouse. You can build with thatch, wood, stone, metal, and glass. Last night, I just built the first of its kind, ARK Pub. And just when you thought you were done building, guess what, there's more. You can paint your buildings different colors. You can even paint your dino's and tribemates. Please stop by ARK if you have any questions. or just want to hang out. Hope to see you around!!!
