ARK: Fear Evolved & ARK Digest 18!

ARK: Fear Evolved

We have an exciting late-October special event in the works for all ARK Survivors, so fun that we just couldn’t wait to give you a brief preview. For about a week toward the end of October, the ARK will be undergoing a brief seasonal change where the air becomes cooler, the days shorter & the nights longer, the moon a certain shade of red, bats and other nasty creatures appearing above-ground, carvable pumpkins sprouting up, rumors of powerful undead beasts roaming the land — and emerging from the mists, the mythical Dodorex makes its appearance at last astride an army of bloodthirsty zombie Dodos, with limited edition treats for those Survivors brave enough to take on the many tricks of ARK: Fear Evolved! What a run-on sentence, phew! More details and media will be unveiled as we approach our favorite time of the year, happy hunting Survivors 🙂

Dino Dossiers

We have no new favorites to introduce to you guys today, but don’t worry, we’re not done yet! We’ll still be releasing Dino Dossiers however as we approach our final number of over 100 creatures, we’ll be cutting down the rate at which dossiers are revealed. So from this week onwards we’ll only be showcasing one dossier per week, on Monday! And we’ll generally do news drops plus other development tidbits on Wednesday with the ARK Digest.
