    Ark Love Evolved 3 Update

    From Wednesday, February 9th through Wednesday, February 16th, love will fill the air as we celebrate Valentine’s Day with Love Evolved 3. While ARK is under Cupid’s spell, go fishing for love and gain a chance at new skins, items, and five new chibi pets to collect!

    Show yourself some love with the new self-hug emote, or try to reel in one of the new swimsuit skins!

    Event Details

    • This event can be manually activated with the server arg parameter: -ActiveEvent=vday
    • For the duration of Love Evolved, we will be disabling the world buffs from Baby Boon & Maewing Poach on Genesis Part 2 on the Official Network. In the past, we’ve adjusted for the impact event have had on the rates by tweaking the bonuses that we use during the holidays, however, those tweaks lead to unfavorable circumstances on maps that aren’t Genesis Part 2, so going forward during breeding events, we’ll be disabling these mission buffs specifically as not to affect the bonuses on other maps.
