The moment we’ve all been waiting for has arrived – Ark: Survival Ascended is here, and it’s better than ever. This Ark remake has brought a whole bunch of cool upgrades, and I know what you’re all wondering: “Is Ark: Survival Ascended cross-platform or cross-progression? Can I team up with my friends on different platforms?” Or what if I want to switch devices, can I just pick up where I left off?”

Well, don’t worry because we’ve got the details about that crossplay support in Ark: Survival Ascended. So, no matter if your friends are playing on a gaming console or PC, we’re going to find out if you can all join together to tackle the wilds together. And for those who live life on the go, we’ll check if your game can tag along, easily jumping from one platform to another.

Is Ark: Survival Ascended Cross-Platform or Crossplay?

Yes, Ark: Survival Ascended is cross-platform multiplayer, Studio Wildcard has officially given the green light for crossplay. That means teaming up with your buddies across different platforms is possible. There’s a slight catch, though – there’s a bit of a wait before PC gamers can join console players due to the game’s delay in release on the console. So, crossplay between these platforms is on a brief pause.

But don’t worry, if you’re playing on the latest edition of consoles or PC, you’re all set to play and survive together. That’s right, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S players with PC gamers are invited to this cross-platform party. Sadly, for our friends still having the older console models such as PS4 and Xbox One or Nintendo Switch community, this game won’t be coming on these devices.

Is Ark: Survival Ascended Cross-Progression?

There’s more good stuff coming with Ark: Survival Ascended crossplay – the cross-progression is also available from day one. This means you get to hang onto dinosaurs, a stash of gear, and your hard-earned progress no matter where you play. Feel like switching from your PC to your console, or vice versa? Go right ahead – your Ark data roams free with you.

Furthermore, mods join the cross-platform play, create your cool mods on the computer, and then install them into your game on any system to customize your gameplay. It’s all about making the game’s world your own, no matter where you choose to play. Now, I know what you might be thinking: “Mods sound great, but what about those sneaky cheats?” The developers have thought of that, they’re bringing in a Cross-Platform Anti-Cheat system to keep the play fair and fun for everyone. So, you can focus on building, taming, and surviving without worrying about any funny business.
