About Astral Imperium

Welcome to Astral Imperium ARK servers!

Astral Imperium was founded on June 10th 2014. We opened our Astral ARK servers in July 2015.

We have been gradually increasing the size of our cluster over the years, and we will host all the official maps in one cluster as they get released. We have also made a custom events map where we host multiple events for our community.

Free starter pack

Everyone joining the servers can claim a Free starter pack, which is an optional helping hand to get you started on the servers. The pack includes a basic collection of items to help you build a small base and a Parasaur to warn you of dangers and scare away enemies.

Community areas

Safe zones, community forges and open taming traps are available on some of our maps. Everyone is free to start in our safe zones where PVP is disabled until they are ready to explore on their own. Taming traps have been built to reduce clutter on the map.

The Arena

The Arena is a cluster-wide event that happens weekly.

You will enter the Arena alongside your creature companion and other players to fight your way through different waves of spawned creatures and monsters. The further you get, the greater the challenge, and greater the reward!

The event is open to all players of any level, so it doesn’t matter if you’re a veteran or if you just joined Astral ARK. All you need to bring is the items you wish to use during the event, and a creature companion or two if you have them. If you don’t we can loan creatures. You can participate in the Arena on foot, however we would recommend having a creature with you for Bracket 2 and up.
