It’s the time of the year when love permeates the air as Ark survivors get ready for the Love Evolved event. Valentine’s Day marks the start of an annual event in Ark that sends the community out to their favorite scenic locations with their fishing poles. What’s the catch? During the Love Evolved event, survivors will have an opportunity to reel in new skins, items, and five new chibi pets to collect by fishing for Valentines’ Coelacanth. In addition to the favorites of past years’ events, we’ve included some new swimsuit skins and new chibi’s to add to your growing collection!
Keeping in the spirit of love, the Ark community loves having an active voice in the development of the game. We saw the voices represented in the 70 thousand votes for the next community-sponsored creature. Taking the crown as the second community-voted creature, Desmodus draculae, is the latest community-voted addition to Ark. Desmodus will find its home in the Nordic-inspired map Fjordur later this summer!
There’s nothing I love more than seeing the experience of Ark through the community’s perspective. There’s a story unfolding between the scared and tense moments as a new survivor in Hide armor to proud and overconfident ones as a survivor in TEK. While your personal story is unfolding, the narrative for the game is as well. Your travels across the different Arks will define and ultimately play a part in the experiences you have and share. That’s why I love that Xbox Game Pass members can experience the definitive collection with Ark Ultimate Survivor Edition arriving with Xbox Game Pass later this month. Do you have what it takes to complete the ultimate quest for survival?
There’s more in store beyond Fjordur that we’d love to share, but we should probably keep a few surprises for later!
