It’s never anything that lasts forever, but if you want to cover all the bases, you can always check up on the server status for Ark: Survival Ascended. It might just be a random outage!

Is Ark Survival Ascended Down?

As of 10:00 AM ET on Jan. 2, the Ark Survival Ascended servers have been taken offline by the developers. According to the tweet announcing the downtime, it is to fix a “critical exploit” within the game.

Sadly, this is the most recent update regarding the downtime, so it might be a little bit until you can invite your friends for some dino hunting.

Considering this has been done to fix something in a hurry, it is unclear how long it might take. Either way, we will keep you updated when more comes to light.

How to Check the Server Status For Ark: Survival Ascended

Unfortunately, Ark: Survival Ascended doesn’t have an official site that displays the game’s server status like Roblox. However, there are two great resources you can use to get a general idea.

To get a feel for the community, we recommend using Downdetector. Keep in mind that Downdetector relies on user reports as opposed to official reports from the developers.

For official reports, one of the best places to hear directly from developers is the Ark: Survival Ascended Twitter account. It may not be as quick as user reports, but if the servers go down for maintenance, they’ll let out a Tweet, usually followed by an estimate on when they’ll be back up. Even Ark’s official site is helpful!

If you’ve checked the server status for Ark Survival Ascended, and everything was looking good, but you’re still experiencing connection issues, it’s likely your system. When was the last time you reset your modem? Does your PC fall within Ark’s PC requirements? Is there a new update available? Rule those out before you make a report!

Lastly, keep in mind that you could also look into creating your own dedicated Ark: Survival Ascended server using a third-party hosting service (like Nitrado).
