Currently, there are six DLCs, or Downloadable Content expansions for ARK: Survival Evolved. For more options to expand the playing experience, see Mods.
An Expansion Pack is a direct addition to the main game by adding new maps, creatures, equipment, and content without changing the core gameplay mechanics.
Expansion Packs are also entirely compatible with the main game, and content can be transferred from an expansion to Vanilla servers and vice versa.
An Expansion Map is a brand-new map for the user to explore and uncover its secrets.
A Total Conversion changes a majority of the game-play mechanics themselves and requires a user to learn a new way to play the game.
Content from a Total Conversion can not be transferred to a Vanilla server.
