Around these parts, we are big fans of 'ARK: Survival Evolved' (see why here). One big reason for our continued enjoyment is the steady stream of updates. Today's additions are big, big enough to change the look of the game. With the addition of both Snow and Swamp biomes, the world of 'ARK' has opened up, and these new regions are full of wild life and are available to claim.
From Studio Wildcard,
First, Survivors will encounter the "Swamp," a fetid, hazy, waterlogged expanse filled with prehistoric snakes, gators, bugs, piranhas, and the all-new "Beezlebufo" gigantic frog, which players can ride to vault over obstacles with huge leaps. Poisonous plants abound in the Swamp, but trudging through the muck is worthwhile due to the unique plant life that can be harvested for advanced recipes.
Courageous Survivors can then head to the "Snow" zone, where they will need to quickly don bulky fur armor to insulate themselves from the subzero temperatures. But the cold weather is not the only thing that Survivors will need to watch out for in this Snow zone: vicious “Dire Wolves” roam wild across these lands, looking for their next meal. However, when tamed, a Dire Wolf can serve as a powerful, incredibly fast mount, useful for hunting down the elegant Megaloceros "Stags" that also call this zone home. High quality resources are plentiful among the harsh natural beauty of the frozen wastes.
And of course, with these new biomes comes new furniture. No doubt, round the clock players are already rushing to stake out territory.
For new players, the Humble Store has 'ARK: Survival Evolved' Steam codes for $19.99 (33% off, order here.)
'ARK: Survival Evolved' is in Early Access on PC and is coming to both the Xbox One and PS4 next year.
