ARK Genesis Part 2: Release Date, Locations, Creatures, Leaks, Trailer and Everything We Know

Can you survive another expansion?

ARK may be getting a sequel, but the current game continues to be well-supported by Studio Wildcard.

Still, all good things must come to an end, and Genesis: Part 2 will be the final DLC expansion for ARK: Survival Evolved.

Following on from Scorched Earth, Aberration, Extinction and Genesis Part 1, the upcoming expansion looks to be a fitting end to the release cadence.

Here's all we know, including its release date, new starter area, and new creatures.

ARK Genesis: Part 2 Release Date

At the time of writing, we don't have a firm release date but we do know that the game is expected to launch in Q1 of 2021.

In fact, it's slated for March for all platforms except Nintendo Switch.

The expansion is set on a colony ship, and as such will feature plenty of new content for players.


There are four new biomes that have been seen so far.

One offers a trench between regions, while another looks pretty spooky. Then there's a lush new starting area for newcomers and an area that looks to be grotesquely fused with longtime character Edmund Rockwell.


Genesis Part 2 will add a series of unique creatures, including the Astrodelphis (we prefer the term "Space Dolphin"), the platypus-looking Maewing, the horrific Noglin, the mystical Shadowmane, and the mechanical Stryder.

Plenty for you to hunt, then, you monster.


Speaking of hunting, the expansion adds a Minigun, Tek Bow, and Tek Pistol to your survivor's offensive options.
