New Update Brings A Winter Wonderland To Ark: Survival Evolved


A wintery update for Steam’s version of Ark: Survival Evolved is available as of today, and it adds all kinds of festive concepts to the game. From thick blankets of snow covering whole regions, to oversized candy canes that can double up as deadly weapons, this update has taken its yuletide expansion to the max.

So while the fresh snow covers all of the ARK, why not take some time decorating local houses in festive lights and wreaths to help warm the spirits of the survivors? Of course, this update is far from just an aesthetic change; the wonderfully-designed Raptor Claus is also on-hand to give players something to look out for:

In place of Santa, Raptor Claus will dart across the night sky in his sleigh, air-dropping presents filled with high-end Loot Blueprints (or Coal for naughty Survivors). We suggest following him around to stock up, including on rare dropped ARK Gift Codes! Survivors also can earn Reindeer Costumes, Candy Cane Club Weapons, Santa Hats, and if they collect enough Coal, they might even be able to summon the elusive holiday-themed DodoRex to do their bidding for a limited time!

This Winter Wonderland update looks like pure madness – look no further than the clips of Raptor Claus in action in the trailer above for proof of this. If you like the look of the festive frolics to be had on the ARK, you can get Ark: Survival Evolved at a discount as part of the Steam Winter Sale right now.
