Studio Wildcard the creators of the awesome Ark Survival Evolved game have announced at PAX East 2016 this week that the Ark Survival Evolved mods program will be launching on Xbox One and PC.
The new ARK Official Mods program will be integrated into the Official ARK System and the company will be launching the program later this month starting with the Center Map for Xbox One and PC in May 2016.
Check out the video below to learn more about what you can expect later this month..
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.
Following that we’ll be working hard to introduce more of your favourite mods to the game with Primitive+ (already an Official Mod on PC). 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.
We really appreciate and value the hard work and effort that goes into the mods from the community and will do what we can to help, this new program is another step we’re going to take to ensure that modders get all the support they need and are recognized for their contribution and efforts in ARK!
