Bounty Rewards for ARK: Survival Evolved through Exploitation Discovery
The developers behind ARK: Survival Evolved are giving out $100 rewards for players who find exploitations in their Early Access game on Steam.
To all the gamers out there looking to find exploits in games - it's your time to shine. Put aside your devil horns and adopt a halo, because ARK developers are giving out $100 bounty rewards for exploits that are proven to be genuine within the game. This reward system was announced June 24th, but since the first bounty has been given out, the hype is growing.
The first bounty went to player ZeroDay(++), who privately alerted the developers about an exploit that could make the game's server crash along with other severe repercussions. Once the exploit was proven to be legitimate, Studio Wildcard forwarded the money to the player's PayPal account.
Although a bounty has been paid, the developers are keen on letting the public know that the offer is still on the table. A few exploits that are popularly used in multiplayer games include speedhacks, aimbots, and possibly even a radar system. Full information about the bounty offer can be found on the Studio Wildcard Steam page.
ARK: Survival Evolved is now available for Early Access on Steam for $30.
