ARK: Survival Evolved has expanded with two brand new biomes for players to survive and thrive in. Included in the swamp and snow regions are new creatures and materials suited to the harsh conditions each represents. In addition, existing creatures better suited to each area have been moved for more appropriate placement in the game.
First, Survivors will encounter the "Swamp," a fetid, hazy, waterlogged expanse filled with prehistoric snakes, gators, bugs, piranhas, and the all-new "Beezlebufo" gigantic frog, which players can ride to vault over obstacles with huge leaps. Poisonous plants abound in the Swamp, but trudging through the muck is worthwhile due to the unique plant life that can be harvested for advanced recipes.
Courageous Survivors can then head to the "Snow" zone, where they will need to quickly don bulky fur armor to insulate themselves from the subzero temperatures. But the cold weather is not the only thing that Survivors will need to watch out for in this Snow zone: vicious “Dire Wolves” roam wild acros these lands, looking for their next meal. However, when tamed, a Dire Wolf can serve as a powerful, incredibly fast mount, useful for hunting down the elegant Megaloceros "Stags" that also call this zone home. High quality resources are plentiful among the harsh natural beauty of the frozen wastes.
