ARK Survival Evolved is teasing…one thing. A webpage entitled ARK: The Countdown Begins, is counting all the way down to an as-yet unannounced occasion.
In the sport’s official launch trailer, a QR code could be seen in conjunction with the shot at zero:27. Scanning that code takes you to the mysterious web site, the place a pale blue gentle supply illuminates a collection of numbers in a countdown. That countdown is ready to succeed in zero at 18:00 BST on Friday, September 1.
That’s fairly unusual, since ARK’s full launch is scheduled for 3 days earlier, on August 29, which signifies that no matter this web site is counting all the way down to is one thing very completely different. Reddit thinks it may very well be a brand new DLC, and says that the announcement is sort of much like that of Scorched Earth, the sport’s final enlargement. That was additionally introduced “out of nowhere” and would share the September 1 launch date.
It appears moderately probably that this would be the case – it might make sense to launch an enormous enlargement over the weekend, and the devs have mentioned that the total launch’s end-game content material was designed to set you up for the sport’s expansion packs.
