ARK Survival Evolved Patch 216 Introduces Swamps and Snow Biomes

The wild and wonderful world of ARK: Survival Evolved is forever evolving and today the island has been expanded with two massive new Biomes opening up with Swamp and Snow regions introduced. These areas include new creatures and items befitting of each extreme climate, the existing creatures have been moved into their new area-specific homes.

Players who are yet to experience the epic survivor-adventure that is ARK can now get it on the Humble Store for the the best limited-time sale price to date of $19.99 (33% off standard price).

Survivors will encounter the “Swamp,” a fetid, hazy, waterlogged expanse filled with prehistoric snakes, gators, bugs, piranhas, and the all-new “Beezlebufo” gigantic frog, which players can ride to vault over obstacles with huge leaps. Poisonous plants abound in the Swamp, but trudging through the muck is worthwhile due to the unique plant life that can be harvested for advanced recipes.

Courageous Survivors can then head to the “Snow” zone, where they will need to quickly don bulky fur armor to insulate themselves from the subzero temperatures. But the cold weather is not the only thing that Survivors will need to watch out for in this Snow zone: vicious “Dire Wolves” roam wild acros these lands, looking for their next meal. However, when tamed, a Dire Wolf can serve as a powerful, incredibly fast mount, useful for hunting down the elegant Megaloceros “Stags” that also call this zone home. High quality resources are plentiful among the harsh natural beauty of the frozen wastes.
