Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch!
Extinction Creature Teaser Tomorrow!
Be sure to tune in to the Xbox channel on Mixer at 11am PST 10/30 (Tuesday) to see a teaser of one of the creatures coming in Extinction during their ARK stream!
Last week we introduced you to the cutest cow caterpillar, the Gasbags.
TwitchCon and Paris Games Roundup!
Over the weekend Studio Wildcard had a presence at Paris Games Week and at TwitchCon. Cedric, Jen, and John showcased a new gamemode coming to ARK: Extinction called Orbital Supply Drop. Survivors were greated with the first experience of Extinction play tested outside of the dev team and the team was excited to see the very positive reception of OSD.
If you were not able to attend either event, don’t fret. We’ll be showing some more OSD this weekend on stream too!
Extra Life Stream – Nov 3!
Save the date! Extra Life this year is on November 3rd and we’ll be streaming for 24-hours straight to raise money for sick kids hospitals. We’ll be dropping some Extinction teasers along the way and boosting our official server rates as our Extra Life team gets closer to our goal. Scroll down for more info on the special Evolution Event details this weekend. We’ll be sharing our schedule the day of the stream and you’ll be able to find all of the stream info on our page:
Note: This page will not be active until Saturday, November 3rd.
Be sure to tune into our Twitch channel on the 3rd! See you there!
Mod Community Updates!
The contest has almost come to a close! On November 1st we will be officially announcing the contest winners as well as the new projects that will be joining the sponsored mod program.
I also have another tutorial ready for you today. We’re continuing with our Virtual Sentry System project and getting some of the basic file setup taken care of.
Fanart of the Week!
Exta Life Special ARK: Evolution Event!
If you joined us for Extra Life last year you’ll already be familiar, but this weekend our Evolution Event will be a bit different than normal. As we’re raising money for charity the rates for official servers will rise. We will begin at 1.5x rates at the beginning of the stream (9am PST). For every $5,000 raised the rates will increased by 0.5x up to a maximum of 8x rates. The rates will only last during the 24-hour livestream, so be sure to take advantage of them while they last!
Increased Harvesting Rates, Taming Rates, EXP Rates, Breeding Rates, Gestation/Egg Hatching Rates, & Raising Rates!
That’s it for this post guys!
All the best,
