I think it’s safe to say that Studio Wildcard’s ARK: Survival Evolved has been quite a popular title amongst gamers this year, and it’s about to get a whole lot better as today the second expansion to the game goes live.
Containing a new story line to explore, dozens of new creatures to tame and more than 50 new items to craft, the new expansion titled “Aberration” is set to be a sure fire hit.
Unlike previous ARK maps, Aberration sees you awaken on a derelict, malfunctioning ARK that consists of an underground biome, providing new challenges the likes of which have never been witnessed before. Extreme radioactive sunlight, earthquakes, and environmental hazards, ziplines, wingsuits, climbing gear, fantastical creatures like the Rock Drake and Basilisk, and more await survivors throughout these vast caverns. Beware the ‘Nameless’: unrelenting, Element-infused humanoids, which have evolved into vicious light-hating creatures, and the Reapers, massive alien monstrosities which can impregnate foes to spawn their offspring!

Aberration is free to ARK season pass owners or available to buy standalone on Xbox One, PS4 and PC/Steam.
