In this case, we're kicking off a Valentine's EVO event in place of Love Evolved. The skins and cosmetics from past events are available in the HLNA Shop. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/61f20956b9d976282f2dac0b7f240c84d0c79942.png

{STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/7155e8218372c9313841dd99afd10877cf3e110d.jpg Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch! Since the announcement of ARK 2, we've watched the community's excitement and anticipation rise as we continued to work diligently in the background to define the new survival experience. Despite anticipating our next showing of ARK 2 to be a gameplay showcase, we see the hunger and eagerness for more ARK 2 information, and we get it. We’ve decided to give you a peek behind the curtain and begin showcasing more ARK 2 tidbits regularly as we lead up to the first gameplay trailer. We hope you enjoy these appetizers, and we can’t wait for you to get your hands on the main course 😉! As always, we love seeing the passion of the ARK community on display, and we look forward to getting more information in your hands beginning this week! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/5f2a3f072254356f771562c03645b0b5f24f7acc.png {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/ddb925a8776c1d1024cbc05e1a1f92ca279fde02.jpg Introducing Stegosaurus: A noble guardian from a foregone epoch. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/53eea1aa9f32144f2b63ffd4f5ea4357914bd495.png {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/7a783bcf3723f1ff8e0efa8ff114768b9f211106.png Introducing Brachiosaurus: An aloof behemoth. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/16909bcdf8c6ec7821ba65d996b18b45160cfe01.png {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/fbaee4e2bf044a6e46021d2886be59de0f1de813.jpg

Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/16909bcdf8c6ec7821ba65d996b18b45160cfe01.png {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/fbaee4e2bf044a6e46021d2886be59de0f1de813.jpg We're excited to announce that we're rerunning a popular community contest, where players can submit their own dinosaur ideas to be added to ARK. We've seen some incredible fan-made designs and creature submissions in pasts contests so we can't wait to see what you come up with this time. Whether you're a seasoned player or new to the community, we encourage you to dust off those notebooks and let your creativity run wild. Feel free to create a dossier, design a creature, and tell us how you see it fitting into the current ARK meta. While we may not adopt all of the gameplay ideas, we will be looking at and considering everything submitted. Use Wikipedia links and references to help with your pitch, show us what abilities this creature might have, and what it may look like. Check out the Creature Submission Guidelines for more information on the submission process and hop over to the Creature Submission Forum to see the current entries. The entry period will end at 1PM Pacific on January 23rd, so don't wait - get your ideas in. We are looking forward to seeing your ideas come to life! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/7f445cf1c7997ade2e1d5f49297c1ac7f5a2e1b8.png

{STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/efd65fd1ee16b94e4d72e8303c8df3639f2d44d9.jpg It's been a joy to watch the community participate in TSOTF matches this past week! We've seen several nail-biting matches and clever uses of the new mechanics that TSOTF provides. It is a memorable experience for us to watch these high-intensity matches play out on a grand scale. Who’d imagine we’d see little dilos, monkeys, and small creatures being mind-controlled at end-game!? We'd also like to give a nod to the ARK content creation community for keeping our screens full of nonstop entertainment. Since the original launch on Friday, Dec 23rd, balance changes have been made to several creatures including Thylacoleo, Rhino, Triceratops, Carcharodontosaurus, and Dragon. Changes have also been made to C4, fire/flame weapons, and bosses in the game. Several quality-of-life improvements have been added such as keybinds, total match time remaining on the HUD, and a confirmation prompt for converting to tokens. A parachute has been added as a lootable item and some optimizations have been made to the mini map, compass, on-screen text, and in-world POI UI/HUDs. The patch notes thread contains the latest changes and updates for TSOTF. https://store.steampowered.com/app/407530/ARK_The_Survival_Of_The_Fittest/ {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/7f445cf1c7997ade2e1d5f49297c1ac7f5a2e1b8.png

ARK TSOTF is the only Battle Royale that focuses on large-scale creature-army confrontations, combined with a unique Real Time Strategy overlay. By using tactics and strategy to assemble a fighting-force of history’s most powerful primeval creatures, only one tribe will survive! Form your tribe and fight in the ultimate battle of Dino Survival! Designed for intense competition and fast-paced dino action, survivors begin their match in a TEK-imbued sky lobby to tribe up. When the battle begins, they’ll fly towards an island aboard a giant Quetzal before ejecting and gliding towards their chosen starting area. Do competitors dash for drops and fight it out? Do they run into the jungle and hide, search for creatures to tame, and rapidly build their Dino Army, or do they die to a pack of curious
