Expansion Pack[edit | edit source]
An Expansion Pack is a direct addition to the main game by adding new maps, creatures, equipment, and content without changing the core game-play 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.
A 3rd Expansion, ARK: Extinction is coming to all platforms later this year.
Extinction on Steam - Not Yet Released
Expansion Map[edit | edit source]
An Expansion Map is a brand-new Ark for the user to explore and uncover its secrets.
Total Conversion[edit | edit source]
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.
Here are only the official DLCs listed. For mods see there.
