Connecting to a Server

There are two ways to connect to the server.

Traditional Method

To connect, do the following:

  1. Run the game and press the "Join ARK" button.
  2. Change the server filter to "Unofficial" and search for Majestic to find the server.
  3. Select the server and press the "Join" button, then enter the password and connect.
Before you connect, you can select the server and press the "Favorite" button to add it to your favorites. Then you can go to your favorites list to connect more easily in the future.

Fast Method

The fastest way to connect is to use a direct link. This will launch the game and connect you directly to the server.


All Majestic servers use the same password, which can be found on the about page.

Server Settings

These tables show the settings that have been modified on the server. Any setting not mentioned is likely not set (remains at its default value). I may tweak some things if I see a need for it, but will try to leave the settings alone so that everyone gets a similar game experience no matter when they start playing.
