Extinction is the third paid Expansion Pack for ARK Survival Evolved.
This map, set on Ravaged Earth rather than an ARK up in space, forces players to survive an Earth unfamiliar to us: one of strange features and stranger creatures. In the center of the map lies an abandoned city, usually referred to as the Great City or Sanctuary. It is the remains of some great technologically advanced civilization, the same one that built the ARKs. Outside of the city borders, pockets of life can be hard to find among the corrupted wasteland. They are still there, however, in the protective borders of the Proto-ARKs. To the southeast, the desert Proto-ARK exists. To the north, the Snow Dome, a second Proto-ARK. Another exists to the northwest, called the Sunken Forest, which was supposed to be another ARK but failed when it collapsed into the ground, presumably due to there being a large sinkhole underneath it. Strangely enough, the Proto-ARKs represent past challenges the survivor has faced: the Sanctuary and Snow Dome vaguely representing The Island, the Desert Dome representing Scorched Earth, and the Sunken Forest bearing similarities to Aberration.
Toward the bottom left of the map lie the Sulfur Fields. Despite containing acid in place of water, and being harsh, dry and rocky, it is one of the more liveable areas of the wasteland; and due to containing sulfur, gas and sap, it can be worth visiting for it’s resources. The Forbidden Zone, considered by some players to be the most dangerous part of the wasteland, makes up the northern center of the map and is overall paler in colour than the rest of the area. It contains a flat, open area at the top of the Zone, where the King Titan is fought.
The central south of the wasteland holds the Sweeping Spires and the Sludge Basin. The Spires are formed of sweeping, curving cliffs and, as it’s name suggests, spires, and borders the dropoff at the edge of the map. The Sludge Basin is tucked beneath the cliffs of the Spires, and is primarily filled by rivers of murky goo. Despite being called ‘dead’ this Earth may be more alive than we first thought, but with life we don’t understand.
This map contains new creatures, features, loot and unique environmental features.
