Ark: Survival Gets New Content and $25k Mod Contest!

Ark: Survival sees you play in a tropical desert-bound environment with everything from other players, to dinosaurs to giant fortresses guarded by a mixture of the former two. All of this combined with large servers and large scale graphics results in a game that is selling well given it is still in development; yet more seems to keep coming with their latest updates.

Firstly you can now start adding your own mods to the game. Ever wanted to create a dinosaur catapult, or how about a trap door for those pesky T-Rex’s? Well, now you can get them and enjoy as you watch your castle become a fortress and your dinosaur become a walking tank.

To kick-start the modding, the creators of Ark: Survival have teamed up with Alienware to host a modding contest. With a grand price of $15k, a brand new Area-51 desktop with a GTX 980ti, your mods could soon become super charged with that little extra firepower behind your rig. With second place holding $5k, an x51 desktop and a GTX 960 graphics card with third following at $2.5k and a 960 graphics card, some people are going to be coming out of the modding contest with smiles on their faces.

Thew new game mode, survival of the fittest, was actually built using these mod tools and pits players against each other in an arena match which shrinks over time, eventually forcing players into a smaller space in which to meet their fates.

With all these features and added components to the game, are you interested in herding dinosaurs and building a fort?

Thank you PCGamesN for the information.
