What is ARK: Survival Evolved?

ARK: Survival Evolved is an open-world, first-person, survival game where players must kill, or tame and ride dinosaurs and other primeval creatures roaming the ARK. Hunt, harvest, craft, and survive alongside or against hundreds of other players on the unforgiving ARK.

Expand the content available on your ARK server by installing mods like the Paleo ARK: Legends Expansion mod, thanks to our automatic Steam Workshop mod installation and modding support.

Thanks to our ARK integration, all server-compatible mods, custom maps, expansion packs, DLC maps, and special holiday events are supported. In addition, Shockbyte offers support for ARK Clustering, resulting in CrossARK Transfering support.
