Today, it’s been revealed that the second expansion for ARK: Survival Evolved will be launching on December 12th for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with it being titled ARK: Aberration.
Players will find themselves on an abandoned and malfunctioning ARK which features a huge underground biome system. Inside, you’ll be coming across brand new challenges, which will push everything to the limits if you want to survive in this new environment; one that’s filled with environmental hazards and radioactive sunlight. To manoeuvre around this ARK, players will gain access to new movement situations, such as ziplines, wingsuits and climbing gear, all allowing faster travel around the landscape. The radioactive weather system has also made some genetic modifications, as you’ll stumble across new creatures such as the Rock Drake, Lantern Pug, Cave Crustacean or the Reaper Queen; the latter of which will allow you to “impregnate your foes with a horrifying reproductive chest-burster!” Nice.
