I love my current Ark Survival Evolved game, but I would love to start a new single-player game. Is there anyway I can start a new Ark single-player game and save the old one. P.S., this has to be on the Island, not on Scorched Earth or the Center.


Technically, yes, if you were to backup your save game data to USB storage.

    It doesn't need to be USB storage. You can copy the save game folder anywhere, even within the same folder the original save folder is in, just rename it. - I save mine in d:\backups\Ark for example, which is on the same drive I have the game installed, copying it after every single game to ensure I have a none corrupted backup. I play several different maps simultaneously that way without problems, just swapping out save folders. – Nope Dec 15 '17 at 12:13
