Ark: Survival Evolved Rewards Players $100 for Reporting Exploits

Open world survival games have proved to be extraordinarily popular in recent years and Ark: Survival Evolved is the latest to take the gaming world by storm. Unfortunately, multiplayer focused experiences are usually susceptible to user hacks from unscrupulous players wanting to outfox their opponents through exploits. These modifications can cause utter chaos and practically ruin the immersion of being in a realistic, vibrant environment. The developer of Ark: Survival Evolved is attempting to tackle this head on and offering $100 through Paypal payment for providing evidence on damaging hacks. However, each report has to be verified and reproduced internally before the financial incentive is sent.

According to Steamspy, who provides fairly accurate metrics, there are 802,594 owners of this game with a peak concurrent figure for yesterday reaching 61,141. It’s still unknown how many reports have been sent and the number of payments made but I feel this is a very wise move to maintain interest and close any loopholes. Surely with such a large player base scouring around a complex world, there will be many instances of minor exploits which all add to an unbalanced game.

Have you ever been deterred from joining a game’s online scene due to hacking? If so, let us know how troublesome it was.

Thank You Develop-Online for providing us with this information.
