    Introducing the Ovis Aries, coming in ARK v254!

    Hello Survivors!

    We were encouraged by Valve to rally the Community to come together and vote in the upcoming Steam Awards. We thought what better way to do this than add a modern-day farmyard animal! In our excitement, Ovis Aries was designed as a fun celebration of the nomination. We want to make it clear that regardless of whether ARK wins a Steam Award or not, Ovis will be making its debut in the next major ARK version update!

    If you hadn't caught up, ARK has been nominated by the Steam Selection Committee for a Steam Award! We are a finalist in this category;

    The “Best Use Of A Farm Animal” Award - Animals are rad and almost any game is better for including them. This game used a farm animal in the best way possible.

    Voting has begun, and we'd appreciate if everyone can vote today at http://store.steampowered.com/SteamAwards/!

    We are really honored by the nomination, and are thankful for all the support plus ARK’s recognition in this category. Whilst ARK’s animals may be non-traditional in modern farming, some have held such roles in the past, and ARK contains a variety of animal farming mechanics: such as wild animal taming, breeding, slaughtering/harvesting of animals, workhorse animals (for resource/crop farming), and of course who can forget working with animal byproducts (manure, milk, and other substances).

    Thank you and happy shearing (& mutton chopping) in ARK v254 :)

    I remember the last post about this going "Please vote for us to win this award, even though we never actually put this in the game yet!"

    Good save.

    Is this sheep going to be available on Xbox one.

    Yes, all creatures will be available on all platforms. I believe they said it will come at the same time, but I can't say for sure, but regardless of that there is never a dino that is on one platform and not another.

    Omg yes! Lmfao such a pointless creature to add tho. 

    Not exactly. If you can shear them (which i believe you can since growing hair will be added), then you could add all sorts of woolen products such as wool clothes, mittens, hats, scarves, etc for colder climates. They could also be used as materials for other items as well

    love this game but can't help but laugh at the situations WC gets itself into. Now you've created drama over sheep of all things.  Seriously quid pro quo for sheep? Gotta put more thought into how you present things.

    A possible infinite pelt source is pointless?

    I don't see why people are saying that this is "bribery." When a president wants to win an election, he or she will do things for the people, such as lowering taxes. Is that bribery?
