Ark PS4 Anyone
« on: January 25, 2017, 12:49:34 PM »
Time to come out of the shadowy sewers and see if anyone is playing or interested in playing Ark on the PS4.

I brought the spare PS4 from the family room and set it beside my main box then commandeered my GF's PSN account to run a dedicated server.

Except for some minimal issues finding the thing in the dedicated server search area, it's been up and running quite nicely. Spidey, Killayo and I have been playing hard.

I'd like to find some more folks to join in evenings and weekends. Anyone? Bueller?

I'm running a private (password protected) PVE - Scorched Earth server with a moderately high difficulty setting and a slight boost to gather amounts and taming times.

I accept all DBBQ friend requests - PSN ID = Saint-4W

I have it for PC.  It would definitely be more fun with a few other people.

What type of game is it? I am at work right now so can't really check it out. Is it free to play? I will check on PSN and see about it when I am on.

It is still alpha, but the most complete alpha I've ever seen.

It is something like $54 in PSN right now, that includes the base game (huge), the Scorched Earth DLC (additional huge), the Prime+ content, and they added the ability to play in randomly generated maps too, all of this opens a lot of replay-ability.   I'm big on the Co-op of course, but I'm intrigued by the idea of having 2 tribes on a server raiding each other in PVP.

It is definitely more fun playing with others which is why I'm looking for players.

There are some bugs, nothing too bad, mostly minor server issues, the world crashes after a while, maybe 12 hours) so I can't leave it up 24x7 yet.

Searching for a server doesn't always work, though in-game friend invites work well.

Game play-wise things have been pretty darned solid, very few crashes or freezes in the past 20 months of playing.

I've considered the PC version, but I don't want to pay the premium for a new rig right now.
