Please Note:  We are currently not offering dedicated PC servers to support the Xbox Or PS4 platforms

“Yup, you heard it. As of the 8th of August, we will finally have support for PC hosted dedicated servers on console. We won’t be renting or hosting them ourselves, it isn’t a commercial venture for us, but we will be doing the technical work needed to get this underway. Initially, they will be available via Nitrado! (It’ll come to other third party hosts once we go through this initial technical-iteration phase, as we want to ensure its stability).”

“We’ve also been able to confirm that Xbox One rentable servers will be making their way to ARK in September!”

*please note that there is no official ETA for when we will be able to provide dedicated servers for either PS4 or XB1. We will update this page and send out newsletter/social media notices when they become available!

TRUgaming, LLC has been a great company to work with so far. Setup of my ARK server was very easy and very quick. There were a couple of questions I had but Jake answered them quickly and got me set up with no issues. They always inform of any maintenance or issues well in advance so that I can plan ahead. The TRU team definitely makes keeping a YouTube channel active very easy with amazing servers and great customer service.

What Is ARK?

Ark: Survival Evolved is an action-adventure survival game set in an open world environment that uses a first-person perspective. There is also an ability to use a third-person perspective in some instances. To survive, players must establish a base, with a fire and weapons. Additionally, activities such as taming and feeding dinosaurs require more resources. The game’s world, known as the “Ark”, is approximately 48 km2 (19 sq mi) in size there is approximately 36 km2 (14 sq mi) of land with 12 km2 (4.6 sq mi) of ocean.

There are sixty species of dinosaurs in the game. Dinosaurs in the game are tamed by feeding them food after they are rendered unconscious, or by using kibble designed especially for each species. Once the player has a dinosaur, he can utilize the dinosaur’s abilities, such as flight or fast underwater movement, as well as its statistics, such as speed, health and damage. When riding atop certain creatures, players can use their weapons. With the larger dinosaurs, other players can also ride on the side with full control of their own weapons. Furthermore, they can carry items, and players can issue offensive and defensive commands to them; for example, a pack of Utahraptors can defend the base, or a group of Triceratops can attack an enemy’s base.
