ARK: Survival Ascended’s revenue-sharing model offers creators an industry-leading 50% share of the revenue generated from mod sales. By providing modders with the opportunity to monetize their work, the company fosters innovation and creativity within the ARK Universe.

The ARK x POWER RANGERS Premium Mod is just one of many premium mods available for download on PC and console. With over 190 million mod downloads, ARK: Survival Ascended proves to be an appealing opportunity for both creators and players alike. ARK: Survival Ascended is the first game to empower modders with the ability to leverage professional tools, such as Unreal Engine 5, to create high-quality premium mods that are available on all platforms.

Creators are able to make anything from a cosmetic skin pack to be used in ASA  to a completely original game that looks nothing like ARK: Survival Ascended. They are able to then leverage ASA’s existing player base and its partnership with CurseForge to monetize their creations and take advantage of this industry-leading revenue model which offers creators a 50% share of revenue generated. 

ASA’s premium mod business model tailored to entice and reward creators keeps ARK Survival Ascended fresh by transforming its base gameplay and maximizing the game’s replayability through player choice. Players are able to customize their experience by engaging with mods and even stacking them in game which leads to endless possibilities for players and creators alike.
