Curseforge Collaborates with Hasbro to Bring Power Rangers into Studio Wildcard's Ark: Survival Ascended

Players Will Be Able to Download a First-Ever POWER RANGERS Mod to Turn Characters into Original MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS

June 17, 2024 — CurseForge, the world's largest repository of mods and addons for video games, today announced a collaboration with Hasbro, a leading toy and game company, to bring the iconic POWER RANGERS franchise into ARK: Survival Ascended - the critically acclaimed survival game by Studio Wildcard. With more than 190 million mods downloaded on both consoles and PCs to date, ARK: Survival Ascended has harnessed the power of user-generated content (UGC) since its initial launch. Supported by CurseForge, cross-platform modding capabilities were introduced to ARK: Survival Ascended, significantly extending the reach of modders and expanding the diversity of experience for players across platforms.

Starting June 17, ARK: Survival Ascended players can download ARK x POWER RANGERS on CurseForge. Players will be able to skin their characters as the original MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS and equip their weapons and Zords. In order to ensure brand integrity, CurseForge, which has over 50 billion mod downloads, teamed up with Look North World, a pioneering UGC Video game studio and publisher, to develop the ARK x POWER RANGERS Premium Mod.

“We are thrilled to team up with Hasbro to bring the first-ever POWER RANGERS mod to ARK: Survival Ascended. This collaboration enables individual creators to directly engage with iconic franchises like never before, unlocking incredible potential for brand reach and engagement. We look forward to seeing how this mod will engage gamers, elevate the POWER RANGERS brand within the gaming community, and signal to other brands that UGC in games is the path forward," commented Uri Marchand, CEO of Overwolf.

“The modding community is massive and working with CurseForge to bring POWER RANGERS to the primeval world of ARK: Survival Ascended showcases our commitment to bring our iconic brands to life for gamers wherever they are,” said Eugene Evans, SVP Digital Strategy and Licensing at Wizards of the Coast and Hasbro. “Working with creative teams from all over the world, and deepening partnerships with publishers like Look North World, remains a key strategy for us as we continue to grow our digital games portfolio through licensing and internal development.”
