    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 have to say I am one who did not vote for Ark simply because of they way they announced the sheep... "If we win you get sheep."

    I know they later changed it, but it left a bad taste in my mouth.

    An idea for the developers... assign someone the duty of making a 30 to 60 minute video about each new dino released with the person who designed it so we know what we are getting and for any major updates... It would make it more of a personal experience for the gamers and may go a long way to solving the "no communication from Wildcard" issue that so many of us complain about. It would also give the designer of any particular dino a chance to brag a little. Other video games that are not nearly as good do this and my son likes them better because he feels more of a personal connection with the developers. I am sure he cannot be the only person who is like that.

    They never actually said that, not even before they re-worded the announcement. It was actually that the sheep would be fast-tracked to come in the next major patch if they won, which is not the same as "if we win you get sheep".

    Fair enough. That was the impression a lot of us got, though, if you read through the comments. I think that was the reason they re-worded it. Thank you for the clarification. :)

    This is too cute, super excited for the amount of farm animals that they're releasing. I'm hoping some sort of primitive ox as well. :Melee_Damage:

    You can use it to get wool from it which is a substitute for pelt/hair.

    They are awesome and cool. They also are rare to find. You can get some pelt from them so I guess it could be useful but honestly who would not want a sheep ?
