Swamp and Snow Biome!
The world of ARK: Survival Evolved is ever evolving and today we’re excited to announce that the island has expanded with two new massive biomes opening up — the “Swamp” and the “Snow” regions. These areas include new creatures and items appropriate for each climate, existing creatures have been moved to their new area-specific homes. Survivors who have not yet experienced ARK can now get it on the Humble Store[www.humblebundle.com] for the best limited-time sale price to date!
Survivors will encounter the “Swamp”, a fetid, hazy, waterlogged expanse filled with prehistoric snakes, gators, bugs, piranhas, and the all-new “Beelzebufo” 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 advance recipes!
Courageous Survivors can then head to the “Snow” region, where they will need to quickly don bulky fur armor to insulate themselves from the dangerous subzero temperatures. But the cold weather is not the only thing that Survivors will need to watch out for in this snowy-landscape, vicious “Dire Wolves” roam over these lands, looking for their next prey! Although when tamed a Dire Wolf can serve as a powerful, incredibly fast friend, useful for hunting down the elegant Megaloceros “Stags” that also call this biome home. High quality resources are plentiful among the harsh natural beauty of the frozen wastes.
New Furniture items to decorate homes and bases in these new biomes are now available. Intrepid Survivors should rush to lay claim to these expanded territories before competition tribes do, though be warned as the climates can be quite harsh!
Good luck on your adventures survivors!
