Studio Wildcard is challenging the ARK: Survival Evolved and modding communities to put their creativity to the test in the ultimate ARK: Survival Evolved modding competition!
Whether it’s building an entirely new ARK Island or designing a new competitive gameplay mode, Studio Wildcard is looking for fans to submit their entries in one of three categories: ‘Mods’, ‘Maps’ and ‘Total Conversions’. With a total of over $60,000 (USD) in cash up for grabs, it’s time to either cash in on the mods you’ve been perfecting or motivate your team to create something completely unique!
Also newly added to the world of ARK this week are the first two prehistoric creatures of 2016! PC players can now add the excrement-eating Dung Beetle and the protective Dimetrodon to their cache of dino defenses.
To start developing your ARK mod, use the ARK Dev Kit, a streamlined version of the UE4 Editor, to simplify the creation and sharing process of ARK: Survival Evolved which is available to download now for free via the Epic Games Launcher at www.unrealengine.com. All entries must be submitted before March 15, 2016, and the winners in each category will be announced on April 15, 2016. The contest objective is to use the Unreal Engine 4 ARK Dev Kit to create a new “Mod”, “Map”, or “Total Conversion” which best exemplifies the judging criteria.
