Community Crunch 335: Fear Evolved 6, Community Corner, and More!


Recommended Posts



👻 🦇 💀

Our annual Halloween event, Fear Evolved, creeps onto the ARK with a ghoulish screech and we have laid out all of the tricks and/or treats for Survivors to indulge in over the coming weeks!

From October 19th to November 2nd, ARK will be teeming with spook-tackular new chibis making their ARK debut, cutting edge fashion, and eerie event creatures all resplendent in moonlit pumpkin patches and Hallow's Eve festivities!

Cloak yourself in event-themed fashion and creepy shoulder companions to embark on a hunt for the elusive DodoRex and DodoWyvern.  


This event can be manually activated with the server arg parameter: -ActiveEvent=FearEvolved

This Story is from 2017. My friends and I (Group of 5) all decided to download ARK and play through the game for the very first time. We decided on hardcore settings, no tames and 1.5x Creature Damage. We decide to go into Island South Cave. We have assault rifles, chitin armor and 2 people with shields and swords. We manage to make it down to the artifact, but decide to head into the cave further as we wanted the chance at getting some blueprints out of drops. (Little did we know this would spell the end for 3 of our 5 members. We also had hardcore mode enabled, so we would lose everything if we were to die.) We decide to cross the little lake in the cave with the plan of jumping in and swimming to shore. We all jump in and 4 of us make it to the other side of the lake and onto shore before we turn to see one of our tribemates say “help me” as he’s bounced back into the water by a group of piranhas, thus we obtained our first causality of the play through. As we grieve over the loss of our tribemate, we agree we must press onward to not let his sacrifice have been in vain, and that’s when disaster struck once more. A pack of scorpions on 1.5x Damage snuck out from inside the wall of the cave and knocked out one of the vanguard in a single hit, then proceeded to take his life in the process. The tribe was powerless as our only means of shielding was gone, but we managed to fight them off with our guns and a little bit of luck. Thus being down two members of the expedition team, our tribe leader suggests that we turn around and leave. Myself and the other remaining member decide that the only way to honor the fallen is to continue onward, and thus we do just that. I take the lead, as I have the most HP, and equip the shield of my fallen comrade. With shield and sword in hand, I fail to account for the biggest danger of all, Megalania. Failing to look upwards, I’m jumped on without any warning. My tribemates unload their guns into the creature in a desperate attempt to salvage what little bit we can, but unfortunately, the damage had been done. Mega rabies had infected my character, and it was taking my life away at a rapid rate. In a panic, I run towards the safety of my tribemates, failing to realize I harmed the very people I was supposed to protect. The leader and other member now had the disease as well, and as we all rushed past the megalania and for the entrance in a hopes of escape, we lost our tribe leader. Myself and one other left that day, and we never went into a cave on that play through again. 

I just remembered this story as one of the friends involved in this passed away last month and it was a happy memory to have found again. RIP

Does this event work and do the ghost and skeletal creatures spawn when you activate this event on fjordur? Because as of last week activating fear evolved would not cause the event creatures to spawn on fjordur.

That content will not be available until the update on October 19. After that, it will remain available permanently on PC but not on consoles. More details:
