Happy New Year! We hope you enjoyed your Winter Wonderland and had some time to spend with your tribes (in and out of game 🤓). Although we are continuing to focus some development efforts on Lost Island, we want don't want you to lose sight of new content that's to come in 2022! In addition to 3 new creatures launching in June with Fjordur, we'll also be releasing Carcharodontosaurus as a separate, free update later in 2022! Let's take a look at the dossiers of 2 new creatures coming to Fjordur and announce the winner of the second Community Creature Vote. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/e73b73f9145f3e7e98c1024004eaa41a4fe00374.png {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/c45c495e3ea447704f83c73a8daf067e8d671c5c.jpg {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/8664c59a07d4be402b1ae994070c2c7e493c1b4b.png Common Name: Andrewsarchus Species: Andrewsarchus mongoliensis Time: Middle Eocene Diet: Omnivore Temperament: Opportunistic {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/6030b873c18c32a4466d131a1dc8ba2ef778eb7a.png Andrewsarchuses are full of surprises.

We hope that you felt optimistic more often than not this year. That you found joy in unexpected places. That 2021 gave you opportunities to rest and take a break from the challenges present in the world over the past couple of years. A special thanks goes to the varied communities that bring diversity and inclusion to the playerbase: our non-english speaking players - nod to the Arkadia crew and the spanish speaking community - Hololive and the ever-joyful Japanese community, our large German and French communities and their wonderful content creators, the amazing LGBTQ communities and creators, creativity within the community as seen in the wonderful ARKitect events or the #danceoffs on social media. Congratulations to Syntac on his 1mil subs and Youtube Gold Play Button and Nexxuz who was nominated for the ESLAND Awards in the category of best series of the year! It has also been a joy to see newer creators establish their own communities and it is, as ever, humbling to be able to facilitate that in some way through
