    Deck the halls with boughs of holly! Winter Wonderland will be making a triumphant return with new presents and goodies for ARK survivors. The epic winter-themed holiday event begins on December 14th and will last until Thursday, January 6th. All maps will receive Winter Wonderland and all its content.

    RaptorClaus will be sailing across the star-filled night sky in his sleigh, dropping off presents filled with high-end loot as well as Mistletoe, and Coal for 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 triumphant return to help RaptorClaus spread the holiday cheer! GachaClaus will be roaming all maps looking for eager recipients 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 an animated TV Show Parasaur skin, a full-body Santa costume, new skins, weapons, armor, or 5 new Chibis!

    The Lost Island rollout begins with PC first then consoles later in the day on Tuesday, December 14th!

    Explore the soaring heights and hidden depths of ARK's newest official community map, featuring three new creatures for you to tame! Lost Island boasts 150 square kilometers of new biomes, new challenges, and mysterious ruins.

    Lost Island is the first community map released with three new creatures, and the first to include a creature chosen by the ARK community. Unleash thermal hell from atop your Amargasaurus, glide into battle with Sinomacrops at your back, or treat your enemies to a shower of Tek-disabling Dinopithecus dung!

    Wish primitive plus on ps4 would get event stuff. We don't even have dinos on island right now. Can't make glass or steel either.  Its awful playing a dinosaur game with no dinos.

    Opravili jste misi přežití archy, která zhroutila server?

    Yes, they only fixed it for Official Servers. The unofficial ones have not fixed it and are 4 updates behind the Official servers.

    Primitive plus is a bad mod that has not worked since the release there, and there are no events based on it, so no one is playing it. Easy to go play ARK without Primitive Plus.

    They are 3 version behind not 4. But I hope when the next major version comes with Winter event and Lost Island that the unofficials will get those 3 versions with it or whether they will end up being skipped altogether.

    I keep seeing people say that the WW event is not going to be on Lost Island but I must be blind because I don't see where the official word of that is. Any help?

    In my opinion Lost Island needs to be

    - FREE of Evo rates
    - FREE of Winter Wonderland


    otherwise there will be no fun playing new map.

    It was repeated three times that the event will take place on "all maps". Will this be true for Primitive+ maps as well?

    You can make steel and brick in industrial forges. On the official CrossArk4 cluster we placed unlocked industrial forges at each obelisk to try to alleviate this.

    Glass is currently impossible to make, which also makes us unable to make effective hazard suits.

    I have to ask, what is the status of item and dino transfers going to be on the new map? Will it be similar to when Gen II dropped?  Will players have to spawn naked and afraid like usual?

    Primitive + do not normally get events.

    When they say "all maps" they mean actual maps. Not "all modes".

    From what I understand the only thing confirmed so far not to be on Lost Island is Gacha.
