We pride ourselves on having a great community of ARK players.

Our ARK Servers

Our servers are hosted on a dedicated server based in a London data centre, which was custom built for our needs.

The Ark maps run several well balanced mods that enhance the gaming experience without breaking basic ARK principles and strategies. We recommend to install the Maelstrom mods collection prior connecting our servers for the first time, to minimize timeout issues during server connection.

Absolutely love this server! Everytime I decide it’s time to play ARK again, I always come back to this server. It feels like a family here. All the maps are linked and it’s run so well by a great team. Never have any issues and if something does pop up, it gets handled immediately. Lots of fun in-game events to keep everyone engaged. You really don’t need to look anywhere else. This has it all!

I’ve spent many hours playing ARK, and by many I mean thousands. Many of those on private servers. I have the tendency to play for a while until I quit to never return to said server. That was until I found Maelstrom Gaming. I keep coming back to it due to several reasons
