ARK: Lost Island has been one of the most popular survival games. It takes the best out of all the previous maps like The Genesis, Ragnarok, and especially The Island.
Launched on December 21, 2021, this was the first ARK community map to feature three new creatures and one chosen by the fans. Packed with stunning landscapes, dangerous animals, and tons of resources, this map has become a fan favorite in no time.
This game has two modes. Users can play single player, or when playing alone becomes boring, they can join multiplayer. The latter also has two different modes.
First, gamers can join a PvP server, i.e., player vs player, where they have to fight against the natural elements, creatures, and the other players. If not, players can head to a PvE server, where it's player vs environment.
Every player only has to fight against the natural elements and the creatures.
