Community Crunch 349: ARK 2 Carnotaurus Concept, EVO Extension, and More!
Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch!
This week we're dropping a sneak peek at our favorite ARK2 tiny-armed, horned stomper in the form of the Carnotaurus! Granted, it's technically the only creature with all of those characteristics combined but the point is - we love our fresh iteration of the Carno and hope you do too! We carno tell you how excited we are to drop ARK2 morsels (sorry!)
Introducing Carnotaurus: The Horned Terror
We're submitting an update for Xbox to resolve performance issues, especially on old-gen hardware (PC too!). Unfortunately, this delays the PlayStation launch until next week as we'll need to incorporate these fixes.
We'll keep you updated on the progress!
Our Love Evolved EVO event is still live until February 20th! Unlike traditional ARK holiday events, only rates and wild dino colors will be active for holiday EVO Events.
Survivors on Nintendo Switch can experience a traditional Love Evolved experience until Feb 20th!

We are deeply saddened by the passing of Tony “Thick44” Schnur.
His positive impact on the ARK community cannot be overstated. His kindness and passion
for games left a lasting impact on those who knew him and fostered a beautifully supportive community. There was something very charming about the dynamic between Tony and his four Neebs Gaming comrades that led to their content being cherished by ARK players and gamers in general. We would like to extend our deepest condolences
to his family, his friends and his community during this time of mourning.
Although you have ascended, your legacy will never be forgotten.
Long live the Wyvern King!
We'll cook up a steak in your honor, Soldier. Thank you ❤️

We would like to share with you Neebs Gaming’s very first ARK: Survival Evolved video,
where Thick sits down with Neebs and Appsro to see if he can get them interested in playing the game.
This video was the start of legendary tales told through more than 300 episodes.
We have a plan to add something to our Valguero shrine for Those Who Have Ascended for both Tony along with other community members who have passed. Whilst the shrine is dedicated to all, we'd like to more personally honor people individually. We have had the intention of adding a wall where names can be added for some time but we'd like this to be implemented in a dynamic way on the technical side so this will take a little time.
Over on Twitter, is hosting their Winter Cup 2023.
