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.

As someone new to running a game server,  I’ve appreciated the help and guidance I’ve received from TRUgaming as I’ve been running my ARK server. They have repeatedly gone above and beyond what was required to do as they assisted me in fixing issues that arise when running a modded game server.”

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. 


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