    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 :)

    They should have saved this updated for the lambing season in March, kinda like how they should celebrate Christmas in March for the same reason.

    If these things would be good climbers on the mountains, able to go and stand were most animals cannot, they would be pretty cool.

    Can we use them as Troodon bait? Or bait carnivores with em? Or better yet, launch them with catapults at the walls of tribes who annoy me? -Dragon age inquisition reference-

    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?

    They want to win a contest for "Best use of an animal", and they're trying to be nominated despite the animal not even being in the game yet.

    "Oh hey guys! I wanna be nominated!"

    "Um, Wildcard, you don't have a farm animal in your game?"

    "Yes I do! Here!" -presents drawing-

    "You have Ovis in your game?"

    "Ummm,not yet...but we will! So it counts right?"

    "....."

    The contest isn't "Best use of an Ovis" It's best use of a farm animal, and we have plenty of those types of animals in ARK :)
