Studio Wildcard has announced that Ark: Survival Evolved will be receiving a new expansion in October 2017, titled Aberration.
The new Ark: Survival Evolved expansion will drop the player in a damaged Ark which has had its internal atmosphere leaked away due to its weakened state. The result of this is a harsh landscape filled with strange and sci-fi inspired creatures. Of course, due to the harsh condition, life has flourished underground as players will get to explore lush underground biomes.
Aberration will add new craftable items such as the zip line, railgun, and wingsuit and includes new creatures, like the overly cute Lantern Pug and deadly Nameless Queen. It seems we are well past the dinosaurs and that Aberration will take full advantage of its sci-fi backdrop.
