Nitrado is the first server provider ready to offer the ARK private console dedicated servers, with other companies joining the party soon. The servers will be offered at a low monthly cost, with the goal of making them available to the widest group of players possible. Studio Wildcard has worked with the hosting companies to make the service available, with the costs going only to the server hosting companies.

A key feature offered is “Cross ARK”, which allows players to connect multiple custom private servers together to create a large cluster and jump seamlessly between different servers/worlds. All server settings can be adapted to the player’s preference by editing the settings through the web portal.

Powered by Unreal Engine 4, ARK: Survival Evolved takes on the survival genre with a unique blend of emergent multiplayer cooperation and competition. Players awake stranded and starving on the beach of a mysterious island among a herd of other confused humans. On ARK, they must then hunt, harvest, craft, research technology, and build shelters to protect against scorching days, freezing nights, volatile weather systems, dangerous wildlife, and potential enemies. Tame, train, ride and breed one of 100 amazing dinosaurs and other prehistoric beasts, including gargantuan creatures on a scale never before seen in video games! Fly a Pteranodon squadron over the snow-capped mountains, race through the deep jungle with your pack of trained Raptors, tromp through a fortified enemy base along a convoy of gigantic Brontosaurus, or chase down prey on the back of a raging T-Rex.
