Ark Survival Evolved Update 2.78 Patch Notes – June 12, 2022

  • New Fjordur Map. Explore a cold and hostile Norse-inspired archipelago in our newest official community map, featuring four new creatures for you to collect.

Explore a cold and hostile Norse-inspired archipelago in ARK’s newest official community map including four new creatures. Fjordur contains over 140 square kilometers of new biomes, new challenges, and rewarding discoveries.

Traverse a fantastical multi-layered wonderland with a frosty Nordic theme. Four unique islands, Vardiland, Vannaland, Bolbjord and Balheimr, and the mystical realms; Jotunheim, Vanaheim, and Asgard, offer elaborate cave systems resplendent with Scandinavian ruins and vast monolithic entrances. Take a well-trodden hallowed path to pay respects at the immense and sacred world tree, Yggdrasil. Vestiges of ancient dwarven kingdoms harken to a lost era, the remnants of which lend an awe-inspiring history to the world of Fjordur. This beautiful and mythic world invites Survivors to a deeply forested land of bygone wonder and exploration!


Fjordur is the second community map released with completely new creatures, and the second to include another creature chosen by the ARK community. Unleash a tank-like fury from atop the saddle of your Andrewsarchus, explore with the Fjordhawk, ARK’s newest shoulder pet companion, travail the icy landscape accompanied by your frosty Fenrir, or drain your enemies’ and foes’ lifeforce with the Desmodus!
