When the latest Ark: Survival Evolved expansion, Aberration was announced a few months ago, it was set for October. Marking it as the first DLC since the game was fully released, it promised to take players to a land of space caves and wild creatures. Sadly, it got delayed with a new period vaguely offered as 'some weeks'.
Well, it's vague no longer. It's been announced that the DLC will land on December 12. It will come as a $19.99 one-off purchase, or included with the Season Pass.
The locale of the content is described as:
Survivors will wake up on Aberration – a derelict, malfunctioning ARK featuring with an elaborate underground biome system with new challenges unlike those found on prior ARK maps. Extreme radioactive sunlight and environmental hazards, ziplines, wingsuits, climbing gear, creatures like the Rock Drake and Lantern Pug, and more await in these vast caves.
As an avid Ark player, it's definitely something I'm keeping an eye on. Here's hoping it lives up to the rest of the game.
