    Winter Wonderland will be making a triumphant return for the fifth time with new presents and goodies for ARK survivors. The winter-themed holiday event begins on December 17th at 10am PST for PC, XBOX, and PS4 and will last until Thursday, January 7th. All maps will receive Winter Wonderland and all its content including RaptorClaus and GachaClaus.

    Our very recognizable helper, RaptorClaus, is returning to drop off holiday gifts filled with loot, event items, mistletoe, and lumps of coal for all those naughty survivors. You'll be able to catch RaptorClaus flying across the skies at midnight (game time) on all maps.

    GachaClaus is also making a come-back to help RaptorClaus spread the holiday cheer! GachaClaus will be roaming all maps in true holiday spirit while sporting holiday-themed colors. He will be accepting your coal and in exchange will gift you holiday-themed items, or you can trade-in your mistletoe and coal for a chance at event items. weapons, armor and 7 brand new Chibis!

    I know everyone is busy with Gen 2 and Ark 2, but really you couldn't take the extra time to put snow on the island? i mean cmon its tradition. imo, i'd rather skip turkey trial and spend the extra time to do winter wonderland right. or better yet, make the holiday events a dlc or something so we can run them anytime. i was really looking forward to WW5, but now i'm just disappointed. it just doesn't feel like xmas.

    Raptor Claus seems to be spawning outside the border in the Arctic Biome on Genesis and you can't get the drops.  Are devs aware this is where he is spawning?

    raptor claws presents this year are utter garbage. gachaclaus are broken. This is the wildcard we all know and love. Can't wait for the broken mess that will be Ark 2!

    Me and my fellow Ark tribemates are also very disappointed about the lack of snow on the Island Map this year. We all would have ok with this had this fact been simply announced in advance, so that we wouldn't have gotten our hopes up for a white Christmas. I don't like to complain, but we were just looking forward to the snow.

    Is anybody able to play this on windows 10 or xbox? on xbox the menu is okay, but once in the game it looks like there is no event at all. On windows 10 I can't join my server hosted from the xbox neither play solo.

    guess not, that seems to be the big complaint. hopefully they'll read these and release a quick patch but I'm not holding my breath.

    So it's not just me. That's one of the things I loved about this event last year and it's a bit disappointing not to see it this year

    Because this Community Crunch has nothing to do with the Mobile version of ARK.

    I apologize in advance for my English. in short, the problem is related to the fact that Santa Raptor throws gifts abroad map, and if it flies in the place where you can pick up it just does not throw off gifts. unknown.png?width=640&height=676

    Also, why is it that I can log straight on to this game on my phone with game pass but have to try 5-10 times on my Xbox One X? Something just doesn't make sense here...

    I wish I could play, I got it on Epic Games and applied a coupon to get Explorer's Edition for $13, but my PC is old and either way can't handle it, and I can't afford a computer that can handle it till what maybe August? :/

    I am able to get the holiday recipes for the Winter Wonderland event, but neither Gacha Claus nor Raptor Claus ever spawn.  Any ideas? Playing on PC with mult arks (ragnarok, crystal isle, the island, scorched earth).

     

    I purchased the Genesis exp pack and now raptor claus works.  I have to spawn Gacha Claus though because he doesn't exist anywhere on any ark.  I can work with this.  :)
