Yes, along with an increased Ascension level and a narrative-advancing ending!
Yes, it will, and all of the items are being designed to be useful on more than just Aberration.
For your “friend”, I can say that while most creatures will be similar in core mechanics to The Island creatures, there are a few that are rather batsh$t crazy to tame. One even involves xenomorphic impregnation and chestbursting.
By default and on Official Servers there will not be any rideable fliers transferrable onto the map, in order to encourage new forms of traversal. This will be a server option of course.
In my view Aberration is the most PvE oriented ARK yet, with more story development than ever before, and more unique non-natural mythos “landmarks” to find and explore.
Not sure where you heard that, no plans to change the current gamma functionality.
They are zones of intense radiation where it is possible to collect Element Ore, as well as encounter certain hideous, aggressive creatures.
Aberration will include various biome-appropriate creatures from The Island, similar to Scorched Earth.
Specifically in this case, Aberration was chosen in order to develop the next story arc of… ARK!
You can build the cliff platforms onto ANY surface that has sufficient attachment area, not only at pre-determined locations.
Yes, there will be some indications along those lines. What developed into the Nameless?
It won’t have a completely unique tileset, but will have a lot of new utility structures.
Yes there are areas with Low or No Oxygen, and of course the incredibly harsh surface radiation, along with various other environmental hazards. Yeah, there’s a new Hazard Suit designed to aid in counter-acting SOME of these conditions.
We’re trying to make the initial difficulty ramp more forgiving on this ARK, for example the giant “Fertile Chamber” is actually pretty chill, and things get more difficult the deeper you go...
Freely on essentially any surface :)
Most of Aberrations creatures have capabilities to move through the complex environment, and there are also new structures to aid in both primitive and high-tech dino mobility...
They are capable of damaging structures, but they’re only intense in certain areas of certain biomes. Building permanent bases there is not advised!
Yes, a few creature types benefit from radiation. It’s not solely on the surface, but is most intense there. The Hazard Suit mitigates radiation and other extreme environmental dangers, but its durability is decreased over time when under such effects.
Yeah, we’ll add a general AI option for dinos to only attack Conscious targets.
Unfortunately not, because we can’t download the necessary content files onto the game client without the player having ownership of the DLC itself.
Sure, we’ll add that -- no guarantees as to how effective it’ll be against a determined attacker, however!
Yes, when Ragnarok is done, we’ll add Achivements for it. Scorched Earth and Aberration will also be getting achievements.
We’ve got the third Expansion in early design phase -- though much of its content is yet to be determined and will also be in response to continued feedback. Beyond that, we’ll be in continuous brainstorming mode :)
We’ll be adding a configuration option for this in the very near future.
We can’t do it because the tethering logic is necessary for splitscreen to function properly, and the tethering logic only runs in non-dedicated mode.
Yes, we will do this. Probably doesn’t need to be a command-line either, can likely just run upon each startup. Will investigate ASAP.
We’ll make a respawning player not targetable by Wild Dino AI’s.
It will, and it’s called Plant Species Z :-P
As a matter of fact, she is.
Yes, just like with Scorched Earth.
The story continues in Aberration and reaches a climax in the third DLC, where All Is Revealed in an epic conclusion. Each Expansion introduces new characters and raises the stakes, while continuing the story of the characters who have survived previous ARKs (they might not make it out alive from subsequent ARKs though!).
We have our design plans worked-out here for the Dino TLC pass, and it will be implemented and released this year.
