    In addition to Fenrir, a creature that's native to the original Fjordur mod, Fjordur will launch with 3 brand new creatures!  Will you look to tame the mobile tank first, seek out a helpful Fjordhawk companion, or stalk the night's sky to hunt your prey?

    Andrewsarchus makes its way to Fjordur packing an arsenal of utility!  Andrewsarchus may seem sluggish while foraging for a meal, but they can move unexpectedly fast when provoked. Once tamed, its saddle will allow you to mount a minigun to the back of it!

    As you might imagine, Desmodus prefers to hang out in dark places, waiting for its unsuspecting prey!  If you're lucky enough to tame one,  you can send Desmodus to snatch up small prey or saddle up and vanish into the darkness.

    Looking to dive right into the action, Fjordhawk can forge close bonds with humans as wholeheartedly as any canine or primate.  A tamed Fjordhawk is a surprisingly playful companion that is very capable of fetching targets that you point out. A well-trained Fjordhawk can locate injured prey and communicate its find to you.

    ARK_Fjordur_Mjolnir_Promo_Logo_2560x1440.jpg

    Acting as a functional weapon skin for the TEK sword, Mjolnir packs its own special powers and empowers Survivors with supernatural might. Devastate your foes with shocking ease as you exercise control over the element of lightning. However, not every survivor will pass the test and be considered worthy to obtain the mighty Mjolnir. Will you be up to the challenge?

      PrideMonth2022_1920x1080.jpg

      Every year, during the month of June, the LGBTQ+ community celebrates Pride Month in a number of different ways. Across the globe, various events are held as a way of recognising the influence LGBTQ+ people have had around the world and the struggles faced. Why was June chosen? Because it is when the Stonewall Riots took place, way back in 1969. Pride Month is important because it marks the start of change within the LGBTQ+ community, along with wider societal implications. 

      Studio Wildcard stands in support of the LGBTQ+ community and we would like to make an addition to the ARK: Survival Evolved Official Discord with inclusion of an opt-in role for our LGBTQ+ community members and allies. 

      Join the Discord

      We continue to work towards creating an ARK community where all LGBTQ+ people are included, where everyone is free to play as their authentic selves and enjoy a space that supports self-expression. It is more important than ever to recognize that systems of inequity based on gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, class, disability, and other forms of discrimination intersect and ultimately affect us all. 

      We also support organizations that are driving change for issues that impact LGBTQ+ communities and, as such, we have made a donation to the Ali Forney Centre.Their mission is to protect LGBTQ+ youths from the harms of homelessness and empower them with the tools needed to live independently. AFC’s Founder, Carl Siciliano was named a White House Champion of Change by Barack Obama. 

      You can learn more about them at https://www.aliforneycenter.org/ Please consider making a contribution to their efforts if you are able. You can also show them support by following them on Twitter

      We hope you enjoy your fancy new Unicorn Pride role and the rainbow themed dino color event we kicked off with our 7th Birthday! We look forward to continuing to celebrate Pride Month with the wonderful ARK community, and more cultural, environmental and social awareness celebrations in the months ahead!

          When ark was still fairly new me and my mom made a world and since we had just got the game we knew nothing about the game. So me and my mom made a thatch hut and a campfire then went out and tamed a LOT of dodos. We didnt know what tribes were so we werent in a tribe. Then I hit her character one time because she wouldnt give me berries and our dodo armys started fighting each other. In the end only like 3 of the 20 dodos survived.

          Are there really ARK creatures that that don't like you?  Tiia educates us on some creatures in ARK that we shouldn't be so trusting of!

          ARK 2 WHEN??

          🦖🦖🦖🦖

          It's already been delayed as of a while ago. It's now (hopefully) around end of Q1 next year.

          Nothing of the sort has been officially stated.

          There may be talk of Ark 2 at the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase this Sunday: https://gamerant.com/xbox-showcase-games-ark-2/

          So maybe we'll know then.

          Really son? You're going with the trite old "YoU mUsT wOrK fOr WiLdCaRd" note? The guy's a volunteer moderator on a forum, not some lackey rubbing his hands together to do his master's bidding. Ark has always been a game that's bugged to hell and back. It's one of the few things the community is justified in getting angry about. That said at the risk of sounding elitist you're playing on what could be argued as the least popular/lucrative of the four platforms ark is spread across and thus your platform will receive less priority. Logically you'll be at the bottom of the heap while they try to please the larger financial draws.

          If you haven't played our version, seen how we been treated over the past three years while we watched everyone else get everything? And we got completely ignored? No wonder its the least popular wouldn't you agree? Over 100 million Switchs in consumers hands, yet, the other consoles deserve more attention? Because Nintendo Switch isn't worthy of proper support like all the rest of you got? That your position? And you know absolutely zero about our system or Ark Survival on our system? Zero experience with it correct? And you're defending who? For what? Maybe you shouldn't speak on things you know nothing about. And at 54 years old and three years on Switch with Ark, I am hardly your son, kiddo.

          Nintendo Switch is getting completely reworked with a new Ark launch in September. There's no development on the current version. If they've made their feelings clear then they clearly showed they wanted a better Switch product and decided to bring you a new one with all the DLCs.

          Why don't you tell everyone exactly why that is the case here? Explain why exactly Wild Card and Snail Games decided to not support the Nintendo Switch version. Explain how the decision was made to not support Nintendo's version because it would take away revenue, money, from their mobile version for phones and tablets. And, how now that the decision has been made to scrap support for the actual mobile version, and in lue of the reports of over 100 million switches in consumers hands, they saw another money grab opportunity with Nintendo Switch owners again. Got our 40 bucks once, now targeting another 40 bucks out of us and more people. Please...explain all that in more detail please.

          That's a lot of anger for just being told that your console receives less support because it's the least popular. What in the sweet blue hell makes you think the other platforms get proper support? Ark is a buggy mess on every platform. If PC- the platform they arguably consider the most lucrative of the four- can still run like a hot mess what makes you think you'll be better off? That said, because it's the most lucrative they'll probably want to keep that gravy train going. This isn't a matter of who deserves what, it's a matter of the company piling support where they think the money will flow the most and going down the list from there. 

          Now, could switch one day topple pc in the profit department? Maybe. But why bet on a maybe when you can just stick with the confirmed gravy train? As for who I'm defending; I'm not really defending anyone, im just pointing out the ridiculousness of trying to insinuate that a guy with "VOLUNTEER" as part of their title is somehow subject to the whims of wildcards corporate overlords. Perhaps take a second to really get a grip on what I'm saying before  getting offended at the word "son" and prattling on about your age or speaking of time played on a platform as if it works as an appeal to authority.

          Except it has been. I know you like to provoke, but an official announcement has, indeed, been released. The delay has, in fact, been confirmed.
