Welcome to Astral ARK
Astral ARK is one of the longest running communities, having launched in July 2015 when ARK: Survival Evolved was released into early access.
We host a unique Dual Cluster which contains two sets of all official maps, one for each game mode (PVP/PVE). We also have a custom made map, Astral ARK. This map acts as a central hub where our players can choose between game modes, trade across the cluster and take part in events. If it is your first time playing on our cluster, you will need to join via the Astral ARK map first so that you can choose a game mode. Once decided, you can then transfer off to your chosen servers, but be careful as once you have selected a game mode you will not be able to change without admin intervention.
The dual cluster runs across the 3 high-performance servers listed below. The result being a smoother gaming experience for you all and greater flexibility for us to add new maps, such as Genesis II for both PVE and PVP when it is released.
We regularly host various events in custom built areas on the Astral ARK map. These unique areas complement each of our events and add to the fun and immersion for players. Most of our events also have spectator areas, so if you want to see what it is all about before taking part then no problem! All info about our events and how to take part can be found on our website and through Discord.
Home to the largest of our events, the Arena is a massive structure that allows for huge battles, pitting survivors against all manner of creatures in a fight to the death. This particular event has been run for many years on Astral ARK and is something a lot of our players really enjoy as it offers a nice alternative challenge to the existing end game content.
The Ruins is a broken down city scape, with many different buildings, vantage points and hidden areas. Here we host our PVP events, such as Deathmatches and Capture The Flag.
As the name implies, Colosseum is where we host all of our gladiator style games. These include 1 on 1 dino battles, jousting and much more!
We have a dedicated area on the Astral ARK map for cross cluster and game mode trading. Here we have a dedicated auction system setup where you can freely buy and sell all your goods, interact with players from across the cluster and enjoy the feeling of being in a real market. All of this trading is done in a controlled way so that we can maintain balance between our game modes.
