One of the most frequent questions from fans of the franchise is, “What’s next for Ark?”. The answer to that is Ark: Genesis. A crazy new world filled with dinosaurs and fantastical creatures to tame and ride with your friends never really dies.
Watch the trailer here:
Thanks to Ark’s passionate community and a love for new content that fits its mold, what was once straightforward plans have become so much more. Through in-game events, free DLC maps, and continued game updates. They are also polishing, addressing player feedback and fixing issues to make it a better game for everyone.
It was supposed to be the end of premium content for a while but they underestimated the community’s Jurassic appetite. Shortly after Extinction’s launch, it became clear that the original three-part Season Pass was cutting into the stories and adventures we wanted to do.
That’s a whole new chapter in the saga. That fits in nicely with the other expansions and builds on all the lore we have already established. Genesis introduces more story and lore-based gameplay moments than ever before. Such as all-new multiplayer mission-based game mechanics. And Ark’s first interactive story-based character, your ever-helpful and perky AI companion named HLN-A.
HLN-A is a little buddy bot that actually follows you throughout the current world of Ark. Speaking and reacting to your actions, maybe even revealing some enticing Genesis-related info leading up to the launch of part one later this year. HLN-A will eventually have a full voiceover and will help guide and motivate you to accomplish goals and missions in Genesis Part 1 and Part 2.
About the launch
With every Ark expansion, we aimed to push the boundaries of what we had done before from both a technical and design perspective. And you can be excited that Genesis will be no different. Part 1 and Part 2 will both include entirely new maps to explore with biomes players have really been looking forward to seeing, all made in-house by the Studio Wildcard development team.
Of course, it wouldn’t be an Ark expansion without more creatures! We’ll be adding in shapeshifters, fire-shooting lava lizards, and island-sized turtles just to name a few! New items and structures across all gameplay tiers will also help to mix things up from what we’ve seen in the past, including some quality-of-life items players will love.
