Ark: Survival Evolved developer Studio Wildcard is offering a $100 to players who discover hacks that can be used to exploit the game.

The offer is open to anyone who can provide evidence of a hack that can have an impact on gameplay or server stability on its official servers, as long as it can be reproduced internally. This does not include the reporting of aimbots or speedhacks.

The developer has already paid money to one user through Paypal for reporting an exploit that could force servers to crash unexpectedly.

Ark: Survival Evolve has proved a hit since its launch on Steam on Early Access earlier this month. In its first week on sale it sold 400,000 copies and generated $10m in revenue.

The title also continues to be one of the most played games on Steam, hitting a peak of 66,037 in the last 24 hours.
