Ark: Survival Evolved might have only recently released, but Studio Wildcard has more in store for their survival game. Wildcard has just announced a new expansion for Ark, named Aberration. Aberration will cost $19.99 if you don’t have the Ark: Explorer’s Edition (or a season pass), and will release in October.
Here is the trailer for Aberration:
This marks the second expansion for Ark, the first being Scorched Earth.
Wildcard has some additional information on Aberration:
Tame New Creatures
The intense radiation of Aberration has led to incredible genetic mutations, resulting in 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 a friendly ‘Lantern Pug’, or grab and toss multiple creatures simultaneously with a massive ‘Cave Crustacean’, or — if you are talented enough to tame one — command the vile ‘Nameless Queen’ to impregnate your foes with a horrifying reproductive chest-burster!
Craft Over 50 Unique Items
Traverse this new ARK using cave-climbing picks, gliding wingsuits, and ziplines. Learn advanced engrams to dominate the harsh environment, protect yourself with hazmat outfits, charge lanterns, explosive rounds, 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!
Conquer New Challenges
With the maintenance systems of this new ARK malfunctioning, earthquakes, radiation exposure, gas leaks, and Element chambers are among the many hazards that survivors will learn to grapple with Aberration’s varied biomes, both aboveground and below the surface. Among Aberration’s greatest challenges is the hierarchy of ‘Nameless’: unrelenting, Element-infused monstrosities, requiring constant vigilance to defend against! And in the deepest depths of Aberration, their terrifying master awaits… will you be among the survivors powerful enough to face it?
Abberation for Ark: Survival Evolved will release October 2017 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Ark: Survival Evolved is available now.
