Hold onto your butts
We hope you’ve all been having a great time playing ARK! We’ve loved all the pictures, the tweets, the videos, everything! The feedback especially, positive and the negative, is tremendously helpful for us to improve the game and take it to the next stage! Now we’ve got a fun ARK-wide special event to announce: with the upcoming release of the latest movie from our favourite franchise, Jurassic World, we will be hosting a week full of fun events and content as a thank you for all the support you’ve shown!
-Clears Throat and does best John Hammond Impression-
Welcome to… Jurassic ARK!
Firstly, we’ll be kicking off the show with a screenshot contest! Each day from Tuesday until Sunday we will be selecting at least one winner every day who has taken a screenshot which matches our criteria the best!
Every day will have a different theme and we’re hoping we’ll get to see a ton of snazzy shots from all and every brave Survivor, we’ll compile the runner-ups along with the winner into a post and tweet the winner. Each daily winner will each receive a $100 Jurassic World Fandango E-Giftcard for you to go with your friends and family to watch the new film! Submissions should be sent to [email protected], and received by 4pm EST each day. The winners will be announced at 5pm EST via twitter and your giftcard will be e-mailed to you.
Here are the themes for the coming days :)!
Tuesday Day 1: Coolest Human-Dino pair
Thanks to @TheXiexe for the photo 🙂
You know how they say that a person’s pet represents who they are? Well we want to see the most appropriate human-dino-prehistoric-scifi-creature-pairing ever! Send us your screenshots of you and your soul-mate Dino!
Wednesday Day 2: Coolest Base
And not as in temperature! We want to see your grand fortresses, your hidden mountaintop bases, your tiki jungle villages, your shark-infested ocean-hideouts. Anything that you guys think would be awesome and unique, send it our way and we’d love to see it 🙂 Bonus points for custom paint jobs!
Thursday Day 3: Coolest Tribe
Thanks to @Gerofied for the picture 🙂
Gather your friends and family and take the most epic group screenshot you can! This could be at feast, after a hunt, or during the construction of the coolest base. We want to see a great group shot that shows the world just how amazingly distinct your Tribe is!
Friday Day 4: Epic Environment
There are a lot of beautiful spots across the ARK, many of which remain undiscovered by any player, as far as we have seen. Go out, explore, uncover the beauty that is the island and send us those magnificent environmental screenshots (which can also include you & your pals); a beautiful sunrise over the mountains, an epic sunset across an ocean, a lazy afternoon as a Parasaur herd crosses a grassy field, whatever inspires you about the world of ARK. It’s about time we changed our Windows wallpapers 🙂
Saturday Day 5: Official Server Broodmother Trophy Shot
Have you got what it takes to slay the Broodmother? Do so on an Official server, take a screenshot of the brave warriors who took part alongside the carcass of the beast! (Please also include a screenshot of the Pause Menu so that we have proof it took place on an Official Server 🙂
Sunday Day 6: Gotta Tame em all! Dino-saur!
Thanks to @Netrosis for the picture 🙂
Do you have what it takes to the very best?! Like no ever was?!!! To tame them is your real test, to mount them is your cause!!!!!!!! You should travel across the ARK, searching far and wide. Each creature to understand, the mystery that’s inside!!!!!!!. Dino-Saur, Gotta tame em all! — 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!!!!!!!!!
Bonus: Jurassic ARK gifs!
Everyone loves memes. If you say you don’t, you’re kidding yourself. It’s okay, we don’t judge ;). We’re in love with them ourselves
