  1. Alrighty, news is out there now. Probably no surprise to most that Dollie and myself have been working on ARK for sometime now. We're glad to finally be able to introduce some of ATLAS new crew members, including their Community folk. ❤️

    It was a pleasure sailing the seas with y'all and we're looking forward to the changes that are coming from the team. :pirate_mask:

  2. Ahoy Pathfinders,

    :anchor: Happy Holidays! :anchor:

    Later today we’ll be pushing out an update for both PC and Xbox, which contains a number of bug fixes, QOL improvements, and balance changes. We have a lot more changes to come and will be following up with another patch in January next year and more shortly thereafter!

    3x Taming
    3x Harvesting
    3x EXP
    2x Gold

    Why I don't get experience points at the beginning  SP game ?

    It's actually a bug with Freeports atm, we do have a fix submitted to certification (and we'll be releasing it today for PC, as it's clientside only). Have just posted this thread in the bug section: 

    I know this ruins the new player experience in these game modes atm so hopefully these workarounds can help you manage until we get the fix through certification!

    Joined the game with a party chat of 12 people, the game lagged like hell.

    Restarted the game with no party chat, and the game no longer lagged..


    whaaa? care to explain this GS?

    There is a bug we're investigating atm which can cause the frames to get really bad, folks are posting various workarounds to sort it out -- may not be related to party chat but just restarting the game that had fixed it.

  5. Ahoy Pathfinders,

    We have some good news, and sorry to say some bad news. The good news is that we've been informed that the issue is resolved (context), which will allow us to now do everything that needs to be done in order to get ATLAS released and available for you. The bad news is that unfortunately, this process will still take a few hours which means we're currently looking at a new delay. We understand how frustrating this is, everyone is doing everything they can to get this out the door as soon as possible. Once we have a more precise timeline, we'll let you know with a corresponding timezone link so you can see when it should be available in your region. This means that the Official Networks also will not be opened up for a few more hours. We’ll keep you posted throughout this process.

    Answers to the recent FAQ from the Community: 

    • EU PvP, EU PvE, and NA PvE will be launching simultaneously when the game is available on Xbox. When we have a precise timeline, we'll update this post with a link to other timezones so you can see when the launch happens for you.
    • ATLAS will be available on Xbox Game Preview for $29.99 USD (£24.99/€29.99)
    • The size of the game on Xbox will be 80gb
    • Players will be able to host Unofficial Xbox and Crossplay servers via Nitrado. This means that players can host unofficial crossplay servers via Nitrado.
    • The Xbox One X version currently does not support HDR but we will be adding it into the game with a patch later this week, with a bundle of GPU and CPU improvements for all platforms which are currently in testing.
    • The game does include the standalone map, Blackwood.
    • ATLAS has been enhanced for Xbox One X.

    Dear support team! 

    I have the problem after 315.22 update. Every time I launch the Atlas with BattlEye, in 100% of cases I get BSoD.

    v315.4 update does not fix this problem

    Every time after crash I need to install the Atlas again. I struggled with this all night, completely removed the Atlas and made a clean installation - it does not help, always I click the "Play" button in Steam i get BSoD (blue screen of death). At the same time, I can launch Blackwood without problems when I launch the game without BattlEye. In this case, the crash does not occur.

    OS: Windows7 PRO SP1 Russian with all last updates.

     Please help

    They've asked with your operating system if you could contact BattlEye directly at: support@battleye.com

    For everyone else, I'll need your dxdiag and minidump files 🙂

    and I take it that you're all crashing on starting the application right?

    I’m still confused on a point. If you needed to do a wipe for technical reasons sure, I’m with you.  But once you need to do that, in the long term will the 10 day head start pc pvp players are getting really help iterate the Xbox build that much more? I’m asking because even though I have little sympathy with their complaint or the soundness of its u derlying argument, as a layman this approach does come off as perhaps arbitrarily punitive. Are you saying definitively that the additional 10 days of testing data pc players will provide during this time is needed for long term success?

    I see what you mean, I'll clarify. It's more for the immediate term than the long term, my bad. We'll be carrying out internal testing with our Xboxes over the next 10 days on this network and it'll allow us to deal with any fatal errors or issues that could crop it. Unfortunately, we can only get so much data from our current internal processes & the PTR, so experiencing the game on the console in a live environment will be highly beneficial. Anything that does come up, we'll have the time to iterate on and get any changes in as necessary for a possible Day One patch on consoles. It'll ensure that the new friends joining us have a much smoother experience. That in turn poses the team to see what we'll need to focus on next, whether it's continuing to iron out issues from the launch, or whether we can begin to work on the Roadmap (and the phases of that).

  8. We understand the frustration behind the decision, it's not falling on deaf ears -- we expected this response to the decision, however, the choice was for technical reasons. The extra time allows us to continue to iterate on the game, in particular, the Xbox build. It also allows us to gather more real-world data in order to improve the experience in the long  near term.

    are you planning on bringing back EU pvp? or are you gona merge the servers?

    Nope, we're not merging any servers. As the announcement says, we're relaunching NA PVP and then the other 3 networks will be relaunched on the 8th of October when ATLAS is available on Game Preview is available. The team plans to use this extra window to continue to iterate on the game and take care of any technical issues which could arise.
