ARK: Genesis Secrets Revealed as Studio Wildcard Raises $90K for Extra Life!


This past Saturday during its 24-hour livestream for the ExtraLife charity, the Studio Wildcard Team, along with its community and ExtraLife partner team, raised over $91,000 and beat its highest amount raised in 2018 at $76,630.27! This was in great part to the help of the generous ARK community, amazing sponsors, and dedicated partners who signed up to join the fundraising team.

Six fundraising milestones were met and as promised, each milestone prompted an opportunity to share sneak peeks at upcoming content, with videos and creative art from the ARK: Genesis DLC coming in January 2020. If you missed the event on Saturday and want a sneak peek of ARK: Genesis check out below all the videos and concept art that was shared during the event.
