ARK: Survival Evolved
's "Aberration" expansion has finally been dated for December. When the expansion was first revealed
, it was estimated for an October launch, but clearly that month has come and gone. At the very least, players can dive into the new content before the new year.
"Aberration" promises "new challenges unlike those found on prior ARK maps." Players will wake up on a malfunctioning ARK that is having a wee bit of trouble with radiation. The radiation has allowed some interesting creatures to come about, and there are unique environmental hazards that players won't have encountered in other ARKs.
There is also additional gear and features like wingsuits, ziplines, climbing tools and more.
"Aberration" launches on December 12th. It's available as a US$19.99 standalone or included with ARK
's season pass.
