Ark Survival Evolved update is now available to download on PC(341.56), PS4(698.30) & Xbox One(942.26). According to the official ARK 2.71 patch notes, the latest Ark Survival Evolved update added Happy New Year event to the game.
Previously, a big update added Lost Island DLC and Winter Wonderland event to the game.
Unfortunately, since the last patch, players are facing issues while playing the online game. Today’s ARK patch has addressed a few of these errors.
‘Happy New Year!’ event is now enabled on Official Servers. The event is set to go off at approximately Midnight EST and Noon EST on the 1st of January 2022. Servers running the event will be bombarded with raining gifts in a hail of fireworks to mark the end of 2021. These gifts will contain a collection of your favourite skins from past events that are currently unavailable and a chibi bonanza! And by bonanza, we mean, the drop rate of Rare, Very Rare and Legendary chibis will be dialled to over 9000!
Unofficial Servers can enable the event with the following commandline param: -NewYearEvent
To modify the times, the following commandline parameters can also be used:
This event can only be run ONCE on a savefile (with 2 triggers).
If a server is set to run the event at a time already passed, then on load the server will immediately trigger the gifts.
