Hi there survivors..
We understand there is a lot of anticipation for ARK Genesis DLC and you are all keen to hear how the DLC is going to work with MTS and our clusters. Listed below is our current plans for the expansion, please acknowledge this is subject to change depending on delays from WildCard or any sudden changes that may happen with our community.
When is Genesis releasing?
There is no current confirmed release date but it is expected late January or early February.
Will you be wiping for Genesis?
The answer right now is no, we plan to release locked off servers (no transferring including characters) attached to our main and beginners cluster. These servers will be completely fresh where you will start at level 1 so you can experience it from the beginning. Our current main cluster is coming up to 5 months old, as we typically aim for 6 months - So working out the dates, around a month or so after Genesis releases depending on its actual release date. We will be doing a full reset which includes the new Genesis Maps for Season 4 which will be a 15+ map cluster. We will use this month to evaluate the new items and dinos and decide the best course of action in terms of balance. (We all know what happened with Extinction..)
How many maps will you be doing?
We currently plan to release 3 maps. 2 Main Cluster maps - Genesis#1 & Genesis#2 and a Genesis (Beginners). We are open to the idea of a 3rd Main Cluster map if the demand is there for it.
I hope this clears some light on our position as I have seen a lot of questions pop up recently.
Thankyou for the support this week!
