    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. Discover jungle valleys fed by giant waterfalls, build a treehouse high in the forest canopies, get down and dirty in vast mangrove swamps, dive deep underwater, brave treacherous snowy peaks, or spelunk uncharted cave systems in search of treasure… There's something here for everyone!

    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!

    Stay tuned to our official accounts for more details on the launch timing!

    can they do something with hackers? in all the officers there are people who use aimbot or duplicate objects in every officer I saw and do nothing. I did not spend my money for this.

    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.

    Its the same on xbox prim + dude, they have abandoned prim + altogether and half the maps don't have drops either, ab doesn't have surface drops, they won't bother fixing it at all either.

    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?

     

    It states it on wc discord page. They usually don't do any large events on brand new maps due to there already being bugs to work out with the new map itself.

    They need to either fix the basic things wrong with primitive then leave it alone, or just kill it all together.

    That's a bit strange which needs further clarification because the text on the Discord page is [I believe] automated when they posted the link to the article on the forum. But the Crunch actually says something slightly different.

    For it to be different I can only imagine the Crunch was edited after the link was posted resulting in the text being different.

    But as I say clarification on that is needed because both sources, which appear to be the same say different things.

    I can confirm that Lost Island will be getting WW event.

    Restore Prim+ to the version it was before Summer Bash, and we'll have glass back and even event colours!
