    Much of what is known of Fenrir comes from tales passed down from previous Survivors but this elusive creature has managed to avoid being documented in the form of a dossier.  What we do know is: Fenrir does not respond to conventional taming methods. If you are able to capture and ride Fenrir, you'll be able to freeze your enemies in their steps.

    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?

        I bought psn to buy ark back in 2020. My lil bro underestimated the game bc I played before on mobile, but once when I woke up on the beaches of the island for the 1st time on ps4, my bro was shocked, the graphic was much better than mobile one, atleast more FPS than mobile and then my brother wanted to play splitscreen with me. I answered "yes" and we started going into the journey of the island for the 1st time. Both had to get used with the settings but i got used quicker, cause I played more than him. We together struggled alot gaining the artifacts. We collected them all 3 times. A challenge was for us the taming methods too and the difficulties of certain biomes. We didn't know alot about the resistance but my bro put most of his levels on health and died out often in the ice caves and lava cave from taking the artifacts. For us, was the mutation system also complicated but we didn't know anything, and bred random rexes to built the entire small island(Southern islets) full of rexes. I went alone taming two yuties bc yuties were my fav back then with their buff and roar. We were sweating when we tried broodmother(gamma) but...we won the fight easily and I was dumb and said"we gotta the guardians 3 times to gain all the tek gear" and we did that sadly. But we gained alot of element, extreme resource grinding and finally building the replicator with tek armor. My brother loved flying around or running on the water like a shinobi from naruto. We've been ready to face the gamma overseer. 6 rexes out of 25 fell in the lava. 2 sacrificed themselves against the terrifying giga. We beat up the overseer with strategy. One shoots off the drones, the other buffs the dinos. We finally ascended. We played ofc aberration too, it was very new for us the whole mechanic but...he refused when I asked him if we will fight rockwell. Today, he seems to play other games, and only playing fibercraft and generally on the game very rare..

        What if civilizations formed in Ark? Would they create peace? War? Trades? In this video, I investigate this question by simulating human civilization in Ark with REAL players!

        Breeding cooldown timer on the pod UI and feeding readiness indicator on taming UI, please? And mutateable color zones for unicorns!

        Will Fenrir be able to be transferred off Fjordur? Am assuming the other three creatures will be.

        Can't wait for Fjordhawk, too! I am also excited to see if Desmodus will be a nice tame, or utterly useless.

        There it is, was only a matter of time again before you started leaving Nintendo Switch out of the events. Once again Nintendo Switch owners are getting no rates whatsoever. Was a nice show for the new customers for a quick second, then back to being wild cards least supported version.

        This is so exciting!!!!! I've been watching/playing this game since it was in early access, 7 years ago. I still remember when I thought the argentavis was a mod! To see the VERY LAST map to be included in ark 1 be released is super hype, but also puts a tear in my eye, this game has been so good to me over the years. It'll be sad to see it go. Farewell, old friend. :)

        Hey thanks for letting me know.  These rates have been updated and should be reflected in the next 15minutes or so!

        Is there an issue with the PS patch?
        The patch size was announced last week already for PC and Xbox but for PS it is still TBD???

        Thank you, they just kicked in. Makes my big hatch much easier now. Much appreciated in the acknowledgement.

        Any thoughts on making trophies (squid tentacles, talons, thyla claws) transferable? Some maps have their spawns blocked by players or are not spawning enough.

        Hatch?  I didn't think this was a breeding event.

        It's not, but that doesn't keep me from making babies and mutating my dinos every day, and a food gather bonus for my uber gigas helps to feed my hordes.

        UK is currently in BST which is GMT+1. So it is 6pm in UK.

        The 20:00 is an error.

        I can't wait to play this map as official 😛 i wonder what changes it's going to have. 

        And, yeah, i hope the realms are not having the tame limit anymore. I guess the titans can't be summoned so there's no reason to keep a tame limit. There are a lot of nice building areas in there. Another thing i hope is not going to be required anymore... Is the runes needed for the portals xD

        Besides that, I'm looking forward. I'm pretty curious! Fjordur is a very good looking map, and i wonder if the boss is going to be a giant Fenrir lol it would be soooo scary!

        Is that the same "error" as still not knowing the filesize for PS platform?

        You know I'm actually kind of glad that they haven't explained how the fenrir is supposed to be tamed, gives players a chance to actually go through trial and error. The fact that I'll have a front row seat to hordes of players throwing themselves quite literally to the wolves and getting subsequently decimated or devolving into a frothy rage as they accidentally kill them is totally unrelated. Totally.
