ARK Survival Evolved - Extinction Chronicles III! New Tek Raptors and a New Extinction Teaser

ARK Survival Evolved - Extinction Chronicles III

Greetings Survivors! Today, an update was rolled out to all branches of ARK: Survival Evolved. The addition of a new Tek-Themed Dinosaur makes its way to the game as well as some balancing features. There will be the appearance of more powerful Tek-themed Dinosaur variants over time as Extinction get closer. These new dinos will have a low spawn rate and a higher base level. With a new dinosaur appearing each month, the Tek-Themed Dinosaurs will be here to stay, even after the event.


Along with the previous Extinction Chronicles, comes three new Explorer Notes, Leggings for Corrupted Gear, and a new Tek creature, the Tek Raptor! More details below:

Tek Raptor

The new Tek Raptor has been added! The new dinosaur features a new breeding line for the species. The Tek Raptor will have a 5% chance to spawn and will spawn at a base level 20% higher than normal.

Extinction Teaser

Along with the new Extinction Chronicles III update, we also get a look at the Extinction expansion. The developers plan to share more in the months to come of this exciting new expansion! Take a look at the previews below to get a sneak peek of what Earth will become:

In Extinction, Earth has become an Element-infested planet filled with fantastical creatures both organic and technological. Element has ravaged the planet and corrupted both the landscape and some of its inhabitants, causing mutations in the creatures and plants that can be found there.

My Server is also gone whats the deal with that? We pay for them and they are gone so for the time they are gone we should get it added to our prepaid time right? Doubt it but it would be nice. Anyway mine wet offline as usual at 4-4:30am EST and then never came back on.

Okay so the game had a major update Tuesday. No big deal, right? So, why then, are all Nitrado servers going offline? The cluster I play on is nowhere to be found and I know that it isn't their reset time.
