'Ark: Survival Evolved' (ALL) Celebrates Easter With Eggcellent Adventure

by Rainier on April 16, 2019 @ 11:50 a.m. PDT

Ark: Survival Evolved is an open-world dinosaur survival game where players fight for every breath amongst the most ferocious creatures to ever walk the earth.

Powered by Unreal Engine 4, Ark: Survival Evolved takes on the survival genre with a unique blend of emergent multiplayer cooperation and competition.

In ARK: Survival Evolved, survivors wake up stranded, naked, freezing, and starving on a mysterious island where they must hunt, harvest, craft items, grow crops, and build shelters to survive in every biome. Survivors will tame, train, and ride more than 100 stunning dinosaurs and other prehistoric beasts, including gargantuan creatures on a scale never before seen in video games! In every available biome -- Jungle, Snow, Swamp, Redwood, and Desert -- you’ll be able to fly an armed Pteranodon squadron over the snow-capped mountains, race through a thick jungle with your pack of trained Raptors, tromp through a fortified enemy base with a convoy of gigantic Brontosaurus, or chase down prey on the back of a raging T-Rex.

Use cunning strategy and tactics to tame and ride the many dinosaurs and other primeval creatures roaming the dynamic, persistent ecosystems across land, sea, air, and even underground. Build your character’s strengths and gain items, skills, and pet creatures using in-depth role-playing systems. Start a tribe with hundreds of other players to survive and dominate competing tribes...and ultimately discover the ARK’s true purpose.

The Eggcellent Adventure has returned to ARK along with giant Bunnies!

Today kicks off a two-week in-game event in ARK: Survival Evolved where special Easter Eggs will be scattered across all official ARK maps. This fourth annual event features all the festive items from prior years along with two new skins, the Marshmallow Dodo Hat and the Chocolate Bunny Club!

During the Eggcellent Adventure, survivors will search to collect special Bunny Eggs from wild Bunny Dodos! Place down these Bunny Eggs to paint on them or use them in a special Cooking Pot to craft holiday-themed cosmetics (Bunny Ears Skin, Procoptodon Bunny Costume, Egg Shell Hat, Chick Hat), including the Marshmallow Dodo Hat and the Chocolate Bunny Club. Also, watch out for the Bunny Oviraptors which will drop Easter dino candy that gives your favorite tame random dino colors when eaten!

Artistic survivors can participate in the community egg-painting contest! After hunting down a Bunny Dodo grab an egg, take out your paint brush and dyes then use it as your canvas to show off your most eggcellent work! Three $100 cash prizes will be awarded and more details can be found HERE.
