Studio Wildcard has confirmed that the Aberration expansion for Ark: Survival Evolved will be releasing on December 12th, 2017. This expansion takes players into a strange, otherworldly area, far different from anything in the base game or earlier expansion, Scorched Earth.
You can take a look at the reveal trailer below:
There’s also the slightly unnerving description of just what awaits:
Waking up on ‘Aberration’, a derelict, malfunctioning ARK with an elaborate underground biome system, survivors face exotic new challenges unlike anything before: extreme radioactive sunlight and environmental hazards, ziplines, wingsuits, climbing gear, cave dwellings, charge-batteries, and far more, along with a stable of extraordinary new creatures await within the mysterious depths. But beware the ‘Nameless’: unrelenting, Element-infused humanoids which have evolved into vicious light-hating monstrosities! On Aberration, survivors will uncover the ultimate secrets of the ARKs, and discover what the future holds in store for those strong and clever enough to survive!
Aberration releases on December 12th on Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4. It is included as a part of the Season Pass. There is no confirmed price for buying Aberration separately. Strange as it is however, it’s not the last planned expansion. After this, just where would you like to see the game go?
