What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“PixARK isn’t your average sandbox / survival game - we’re going to be introducing a lot of experimental technology and features that will require extensive testing and iterating before we’re ready to ship them in a final product. We saw fantastic results with ARK’s time in Early Access, and we’re ready to once again work with the community to help make PixARK the best game it can be.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan on launching the full version of PixARK later this year.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“PixARK’s full release will have a great deal more content compared to when it first launches in Early Access. We have a clear roadmap for what we plan on achieving - we’ll be sharing more info on that roadmap as we progress through Early Access.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“PixARK’s core systems are all fully functional; our current build supports local single-player and online multiplayer on both official and private servers.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“PixARK will be sold at a discounted price during the Early Access period (subject to change, dependent on your Steam region).”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Acting on community feedback is a major part of our development process - we’ll be constantly scouring Steam Discussions, as well as other forums, subreddits, Twitter mentions, smoke signals, and more to make sure we have a clear idea of how the community wants to see PixARK develop.”

PixARK Update 6/21 - Patch Notes

Version 1.20

6/21/18 - 2 AM Pacific Time

Hello Friends! We have another PixARK patch coming your way, with some new adjustments. This week, we’re focusing on creature stats, as well as balancing items for both PvE and PvP. You can check out all of the changes we’ve made below. Thank you for the constant support during PixARK’s Early Access!
  • Tamed Gargoyles’ stats have been adjusted in this patch. Max hp has been increased from 3300 to 5700, max damage increased from 205 to 242, max Torpor increased from 2420 to 2710, and flight speed reduced from 30m/s to 16m/s
  • Reduced the sprint speed for: Fairy Dragon’s Ichthyosaurus, Pegasus, Procoptodon, Pteranodon, and Quetzal from 18m/s to 16m/s
  • Fixed an issue where some creatures were incorrectly granted faster movement speed after consuming some items. Tames can no longer use Swiftness Potion, Cooked Longrass, and Concentrated Fruit Juice.
  • Increased damage for Sleepy Arrow, Blind Arrow, and Ice Arrow when equipped on a Crossbow and reduced damage for Magic Sleepy Arrow when equipped on a Bow.
  • Fixed an issue where DOT (damage over time) buff would randomly have incorrect damages for: Fellhunter, Ghost Dragon, Armadillo, Fire Elemental, Fire Spider, Thorny Boar, Elite Skeleton(Ruins), Elite Zombie(Ruins), Mummy King(Ruins), and Mushroom.
  • Fixed an issue where Ice and Blind Arrows were damaging Steel, Iron, Tempered Glass, and Magical Structures

Fly on the back of a dragon and smite your enemies with a magic wand, or ride a mighty T-Rex and blast your foes with a rocket launcher. In the world of PixARK, how you play is up to you – as long as you survive!
