It’s time for our favorite part of the day again, woohoo: announcing the winners for the Jurassic ARK screenshot competition! Today’s competition is the last, and in our opinion the toughest of the bunch! We received a few entries but none had fully completed what we requested, to show us every current tamed creature side-by-side on the ARK on a live official PvP server! Though that’s actually great: it means even with all these hours, you guys still have a long way to go, which gives us a lot of confidence as we implement even more creatures and expand the game content!
However that’s not to say there won’t be any winners! We’ve still selected some out of those who sent in entries, as they were really close and put in a good effort, for which we thank you and congratulate you! So let’s get down to business.
Just a reminder, today’s competition was for:
Gotta Tame em all! Dino-saur!
We want to see EVERY TAMABLE CREATURE IN ARK, TAMED (& Saddled where appropriate), ON AN OFFICIAL PVP SERVER, TOGETHER. DO IT. MAKE IT AS EPIC AS YOU CAN. USE PAINTS, LIGHTS, EVERYTHING!!!
Some of you guys came fairly close, and here they are…….
Congratulations to Justin Meadows, he and his tribe, Imortality of Official Server came very close to taming all of the available creatures. Whilst they may not have one of each species, the amount of Dinosaurs they have certainly does make up for that! Keep it up guys and you’ll soon have caught them all! All you’re missing from the current set is an Ankylosaurus, Stegosaurus, Megalodon, Argentavis, Brontosaurus, Mammoth, and Dilophosaurus!
Congratulations to Michael Jovez, he and his tribe Teeth, can be seen alongside their Dino family on PvE server 34. Another great collection, and some very uniquely colored Dinos to boot! Keep up the good work Teeth, I’m positive in no time you’ll have tamed them all! All you’re missing is a Stegosaurus, Dodo, Dilphosaurus, Megalodon, Sabertooth, Sarcosuchus, Ankylosaurus, and Spinosauru!
For the effort & nice shots, you’ve both won a 100$ Jurassic World Fandango E-Giftcard, so expect to see that shortly and hope you enjoy the film and it reminds you of your times on the ARK!
Also just a heads up — if anyone does manage to tame all of the Dinosaurs on an Official PVP server. Send us a screenshot of you and your friends, alongside a screenshot of the pause-menu information so we can see, and you’ll also be awarded with a prize! Remember to send them to [email protected]
So we had a few bonus entries to share this week, these are some of the great ones we received and we just had to share them! Congratulations to the following, you can expect to see a 100$ Jurassic World Fandango E-Giftcard in your inbox fairly shortly!
One of the honourable mentions from the Epic Environment screenshot contest sent us in a GIF he’s titled “Welcome to ARK”. It was hilarious to watch and we really enjoyed it, it shows off some of the amusing parts of the ARK universe so check it out if you haven’t!
Derrick Lewallen is another one of the winners for the Bonus pictures competition. He’s taken ARK to the 21st Century and incorporated a picture of himself, alongside some friends using a Selfie-stick which looks to be crafted from a Pike! Fantastic work mate!
Nick had informed us that he was setting up for his DAY 6 picture, though it didn’t go as planned! We all have that one friend who wants to be the center of attention and decides to just photo bomb everything.. and just, bleugh! For this hilarious shot Nick you’ve also been selected as one of the bonus winners!
And whilst this isn’t really a bonus screenshot, it was something that we had received just before making the announcement! Legrain has made a cute little tree-house and we think it’s absolutely awesome and cozy-looking! So congratulations buddy and keep it up, you can expect to see a 50$ Jurassic World Fandango E-Giftcard in your inbox fairly shortly!
So… we got a little excited and decided to reveal a sneak peak upcoming creatures. You may have seen them recently in Jurassic World, but their ARK counterparts are even cooler if I say so myself ;). For those who hadn’t seen the announcements, here’s what’s what you can expect to see in the future!
Thanks guys! This has been such a fun week, loads of great emails were sent in and congratulations once again to all our winners! We’ll be sure to have more competitions throughout Early Access, with some big news regarding Steam Workshop coming fairly soon so keep your eyes peeled! See ya on the ARK everyone!
All the best,
