xbox one and windows 10 crossplay nitrado

hello, assuming we actually get crossplay on 12/12 like wildcard says, i am going to rent a server for my friends on xbox and on pc to play together. i have not seen too much info on these servers and when i look at server prices i am not sure if the servers i am looking at will be crossplay. is there anywhere i can read more about this? is this something i should be buying now so that it is ready to go on the 12th? are there different prices for crossplay servers?

Last time I heard them stating crossplay was when the game was released and it never happened. I have no info myself if they are or not.
But in reality if they do it will be so unfair to console players. I've played ARK on both platforms, and PC is by far superior. Of course only my opinion.

Take this with a pinch of salt, but I remember reading that servers will be given an option to essentially tick a box that allows crossplay to happen.
If you check the official site, they have it on one of the posts thats on the main page i believe

i called nitrado and they literally knew nothing lmfao. how is there that little communication between wildcard and nitrado when this function is supposed to be live in 2 weeks? it literally says on wildcard's website that it is expected to launch on 12/12, and like Raxant said, that you will be able to tick a box to make the server be crossplay, and yet when i called nitrado looking for info in regard to this, they could not tell me ANYTHING. how freaking USELESS! I am not interested in renting unless i can do crossplay with my friends on xbox while i am on pc, and i have so many questions i want to ask and it is impossible to get the info...

Well, to be fair: Crossplay is a Wildcard and Microsoft thing. I am sure at some point they will contact Nitrado along with all their partnerships to discuss the details. As far as we all know, they could be talking right now. Many times while discussions might be going on, the business wants to make 100% sure the info that is available and released is accurate. I am only assuming all of this cause typically this is what happens in the industry. I am 100% confident when Nitrado or the single person you talked with will have more information very soon. WC had announced 'crossplay' some time ago with a previous release and it was not released. Let's hope this time it it, and all are aware or the info is available.

well i wanted to speak to nitrado because i want to make sure i have a server lined up for the day that the release is supposed to be (december 12) but they simply cannot provide me with enough details right now. i don't want december 12th to come around and then i try to get a server and there are none. based on the reading that i have done, a lot of people have had to do pre-orders for their server. but at this point, i don't know if i should be ordering an xbox or a pc server...

I am not an employee of Nitrado.

As soon as I find or learn of details, I will update this post unless someone else does. You have every right wanting to know something.

Some personal advice: Do the PC Server. PC server has things like : FTP access for file downloads and uploads is the big one. Also atm, ONLY PC server ARK supports MODs. I am wondering how is that going to work of a PC Server with MODs has crossplay enabled, the friends on Xbox be able to connect? Weird if it works. I just went to the actual http://www.studiowildcard.com/ and nothing posted about crossplay. At https://ark.gamepedia.com/ARK_Survival_Evolved_Wiki I also see no reference to this, not even a future PC release besides the DLC. At https://survivetheark.com/ all the news shows nothing but new DLC info. And went back at least 50 tweets: still find nothing about crossplay.

That could be part of the problem- the average player of the game visiting these sites see's nothing.

When I know something, I'll post. Thank you.

Thx for the link-

found it, tucked towards the bottom and wow not very much detailed info
"

Xbox Play Anywhere



In addition to the Aberration update, barring any cert issues, Xbox
will receive the Play Anywhere update on December 12th. This update will
allow crossplay between the Windows 10 version of ARK and the Xbox
version. Survivors will be able to choose to allow crossplay on their
unofficial servers or non-dedicated sessions with a simple checkbox on
the host menu. "
Hmm.
I will ask around with my contacts at Nitrado for public info. Hang in there. :)

On WC Twitter it is mentioned CrossPlay releases this Thursday. And someone mentioned if you own say the xbox version, you auto own the PC version on Win10.
This is all I have seen about CrossPlay.
