Studio Wildcard has today announced a host of new additions to its virtual reality (VR) compatible title ARK: Survival Evolved. The update includes two new areas to explore, the Swamp and Snow regions, as well as new three new additional creatures.
In the swamp, players will encounter a fetid, hazy, waterlogged expanse filled with prehistoric snakes, gators, bugs and piranhas. While it doesn’t sound inviting as poisonous plants are prevalent in the swamp, trudging through the muck is worthwhile due to the unique plant life that can be harvested for advanced recipes. The area is also home to one of the new creatures. The all-new “Beezlebufo” gigantic frog, which players can ride to vault over obstacles with huge leaps.
The snow region survivors will have to wrap up warm in bulky fur armour to protect themselves from the freezing climate. High quality resources can be found in this seemingly desolute area, as well as the dangerous Dire Wolf and the Megaloceros (Stag). A Dire Wolf when tamed can serve as a powerful, incredibly fast mount, useful for hunting down the Megaloceros.
New Furniture items to decorate homes and bases in these new biomes is now available, and for a limited period ARK: Survival Evolved can be purchased from the Humble Store for the discounted price of $19.99 USD, saving 33% off, for a limited time.
VRFocus will continue bringing you all the latest updates for ARK: Survival Evolved as they’re announced.
