ARK: Survival Evolved Steam players are invited to ring in 2016 on the ARK! Starting today at 12 PM EST a gigantic New Year’s Eve ball will descend from the heavens through to January 1 at midnight EST. When it finally hits the ground, a fantastic surprise will be revealed for all Survivors who are on their ARK at that time! This is some great news for those of you playing on the Steam version. The developers at Studio Wildcard wishes all Survivors a Happy New Year!
In addition, the ARK is getting a unique new denizen today: the hip hopping Procoptodon, essentially a gigantic prehistoric Kangaroo. Carrying up to TWO passengers, in a first for ARK creatures, the Procoptodon is able to cover great distances and leap over obstacles with ease, while the pouch-bound passenger is able to make fully effective use of all weaponry while riding!
Check out the ARK Procoptodon Spotlight video on YouTube:
Procoptodon – The Pouch-Warrior Can Focus on Firing His Weapons!
Finally, this ARK update adds the oft-requested “Tribe Alliances” feature, allowing multiple smaller Tribes to officially “ally” together and gang up to take down larger, dominant Tribes on their ARK. Strength in numbers, Viva la revolucion! REMINDER! ARK: Survival Evolved is on sale for 40% off ($17.99) now through 10 AM PST, Monday, January 4. Go ride a dinosaur now! ARK: Survival Evolved will launch in June 2016 on Xbox One via the ID@Xbox program, PlayStation®4 with Project Morpheus support, and full release on Steam PC.
