We're wrapping up another excellent ExtraLife event with the ARK community. On November 5th, we went live on Twitch from our Seattle Office for 24 hours to support ExtraLife, a program of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. With your help, we were able to raise over $130K in support of kids' health! We were able to shatter our individual and team donation goals, setting up this year's event to be another unforgettable one! Throughout the Game Day event, we maintained the #2 team in total donations and in the top 5 for individual donations!

The ARK community has helped us raise well over 500K for children in need with the completion of our 8th ExtraLife event! These achievements wouldn't be possible without the support of the ARK community and sponsors! We are grateful for our generous, supportive players, partners & sponsors, & ... Read more

Greetings Survivors!

Recently the ARK PvP Community suffered the loss of a much-loved member, Uriel. He was a uniting force amid a varied group of players and multiple tribes. Uri endeared himself to everyone irrespective of their affiliation in PvP due to his sweet and funny nature along with being known for his amusing dances on stream.

Uri was someone who didn't allow his own adversities in life to dim the good-natured light he shone. We will all feel the absence of his warmth greatly.

We’d like to honor Uri, his tribemates, and his friends by sharing the absolutely heartwarming outpouring of love for him that was shown when an unprecedented number of our Official PvP players came together to memorialize him with in-game builds.

We have collated pics of players’ memorial builds to share with the community.... Read more
