Studio Wildcard today blanketed the world of ARK: Survival Evolved with a winter-themed landscape – the “Winter Wonderland” holiday event will find Raptor Claus’ sleigh gliding across the ARK night sky, air-dropping presents filled with high-end loot, as well as Mistletoe and Coal for those naughty Survivors.
Starting today at 10am PST through January 7, the ARK Winter Wonderland holiday event will be celebrated on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 platforms. All maps are supported in both single player and multiplayer, with the event automatically activating on any map, even on modded map servers.
This year, Gacha Claus will be roaming all maps in a dashing Santa Hat and sporting holiday-themed colors to help out the very busy Raptor Claus. If you give Gacha Claus coal, he will in exchange gift ARK Survivors holiday themed items, or you can trade in your mistletoe for weapons and armor!
Survivors can stay warm this season in their festively decorated homes with the holiday lights, decorative Christmas tree, wreaths, stockings, snowmen, and wrapped presents they receive from Gacha Claus.
In addition to the holiday event, there are a bevy of fixes simultaneously launching across all three platforms, including improvements to commanding flyers, better AI for the Manticore along with continued improvements and fixes to the Extinction Expansion Pack.
