TRAILER: Studio Wildcard Launches “Aberration” Expansion Pack For Ark: Survival Evolved

2017 08 27 00002
The world of ARK: Survival Evolved just became far larger today as the game’s second expansion pack “Aberration” has gone live. Set in elaborate underground caves, where players must hide from dangerously intense sun that has turned the ARK's surface into an irradiated hellscape, ARK: Aberration contains a new storyline to explore, dozens of new creatures to tame and more than 50 new items to craft.

Waking up on ‘Aberration’ - a derelict, malfunctioning ARK featuring an elaborate underground biome system filled with new challenges unlike those found on prior ARK maps. Extreme radioactive sunlight, earthquakes, and environmental hazards, ziplines, wingsuits, climbing gear, fantastical creatures like the Rock Drake and Basilisk, and more await survivors throughout these vast caverns. Beware the ‘Nameless’: unrelenting, Element-infused humanoids, which have evolved into vicious light-hating creatures, and the Reapers, massive alien monstrosities which can impregnate foes to spawn their offspring!

“Aberration” is available to purchase now on Xbox One, PS4 and PC/Steam and is free to ARK season pass owners.

“Aberration” Expansion Pack Features

Tame New Creatures: The intense radiation of Aberration has led to incredible genetic mutations, resulting in dozens of new creatures with amazing abilities! Clamber up walls & glide through the air on the back of a camouflaging chameleon-like ‘Rock Drake’, keep the dark at bay with one of four friendly ‘Lantern Pets’, or grab and toss multiple creatures simultaneously with a massive ‘Cave Crustacean’, or -- if you are brave enough - allow the horrific "Reaper Queen" to impregnate you, and spawn a vicious male Reaper alien lifeform you can tame and control.

Craft 50+ Unique Items: Use cave-climbing picks, gliding wingsuits, and ziplines to traverse this new ARK. Learn advanced engrams to dominate the harsh environment, protect yourself with hazmat outfits, charge lanterns, flashbangs, batteries, glowsticks, railguns and much more. Thrive by gathering new resources, using fishing baskets, gas collectors, fortify your home within the caverns using cliff structures, and much more!
