The Center, a massive new ARK map which was created by modder Ben Burkart, is the first to be made into an Official Mod, following the announcement of the Official Mods Program.


Venture through The Center’s stunning new biomes and caves so large that they facilitate their own living eco-system.


The massive map doubles the in-game playable geography of the already enormous ARK landscape making it roughly 70 sq. kilometers. The Center is filled with stunning lighting effects, lava rivers, giant picturesque mountains, misty floating islands, ancient underground ruins, enormous ice caves, and of course beyond the breathtaking sights lay dangerous threats and mysterious secrets to unravel with you and your tribe-mates.


The Center is free for all ARK: Survival Evolved players, and for those who have yet to adventure into the mysterious dino-inhabited world, you’re in luck as ARK: Survival Evolved is now on sale for Steam Players for 33% off and on Xbox One via the ID@Xbox Program for 25%-off for Gold Members and 15%-off for Silver Members!

The Center was crafted completely by hand without any auto-generated content, it will use it’s own save data, with separate options to reset the save data for each individual map. We’ll also be launching new 100-player Official Servers and today’s update will also include additional content and fixes:


Added The Center Official ARK Mod/Map as Free DLC
Added new 100-player 'The Center' Official Servers
Improved Non-TrueSky Sky & Lighting (+ SM4/Mac/Linux)
Significant server PhysX & Networking optimization
Added option for PvE Servers to disable building around critical resource node regions
You can now pickup and toss Dodos & Dung Beetles. Rejoice!
Fixed the huge stall/lock when you "Transfer" a bunch of items at once
Arthropluera "Turret" AI mode option: won't move and will only used ranged attack against targets.
Added server option to override per-Item Crafting costs
Added server option to override the loot tables for each kind of supply crate
Added server option to limit number of members in Tribes. Default: no limit.
Warmap now dynamically shows the mini-map texture of whatever level you're playing on!

Good luck on your adventures and unravelling the mysterious Survivors!

All the best,

Wildcard Jat and the ARK: Survival Evolved Team

Would love for this to be a server here. I would even replace the current one with Center if I had a vote.

I love this map. I never played Ark on public server, but with this map, who knows?
