ARK: SURVIVAL EVOLVED TO SPOOK SURVIVORS WITH ARK ‘FEAR EVOLVED 2’ THIS HALLOWEEN
Studio Wildcard Darkens the Jurassic Landscape With Stomping Dino Skeletons, Dark Quests, a DodoWyvern, and… Clowns!
Seattle, WA – October 28, 2016 – “Beware all ye who wander in the swamps of the Jurassic, for the dead have returned for the marrow in your bones!” said the ancient DodoWyvern. Yes, it’s All Saints Day, the Day of the Dead, Halloween! And before you know it, Studio Wildcard’s ARK: Survival Evolved will transform from a humid, leafy jungle into a dark, eerie landscape teeming with dino skeletons, overgrown pumpkin patches, and Halloween festivities. Prepare for the ultimate Dino-Ween event, Fear Evolved 2!
For those uninitiated with ARK: Survival Evolved, the popular survival-adventure game is on sale right now on Steam for $14.98, 50% off the retail price (normally $29.99). ARK: Scorched Earth, the expansion, is 30% off the retail price for $13.99 (normally $19.99). Both games will be on sale starting today, 10:00 am PDT, Friday, October 28, through 10 am PDT, Tuesday, November 1.
In the world of ARK, Dodo’s are far from extinct. They rule the living and the undead!
Running from Friday October 28 through Sunday November 6 on Steam, Fear Evolved 2 will have ARK survivors witness a reddening of the moon, a darkening of the landscape, shorter days and longer nights, with massive living Skelesaurs walking the fields, petrifying Dodo-Rexes stomping the lands, and Zombie Dodos scampering through the haunted forest! Environmental changes such as pumpkin patches, graves, and scarecrows will pop up everywhere, with loot drops, witch hats, Clown Masks, and Dodo-Rex helmets available to collect. Watch for transformations amongst beasts and keep a close watch on the Gigantosaurus, Quetzalcoatlus, Jerboa, Wyvern, and more. And for ARK: Scorched Earth owners, beware the legendary DodoWyvern and the VampireEyes!
