Ark Survival Evolved Launched Valentine’s Day Special Event on Steam

Survivor Gaming

From Wednesday, February 9 through Wednesday, February 16, love will fill the air as we celebrate Valentine's Day with Love Evolved 3. While ARK is under Cupid's spell, go fishing for love and earn the chance to get new skins, items and five new chibis to collect.

It's always fun to celebrate an event within a video game and enjoy the extra content: activities and outfits with a particular theme. ARK is already filling up with hearts, roses and a more romantic atmosphere.

Event Details
ARK: Survival Evolved

This event can be activated manually with the server arg parameter: -ActiveEvent=vday

For the duration of Love Evolved 3, we will disable the worldwide benefits of Baby Boon and Maewing Poach in Genesis Part 2 on the Official Network. In the past, we have adjusted the impact that events have had on rates by adjusting the bonuses we use during the festivities, however, those adjustments lead to unfavorable circumstances on non-Genesis Part 2 maps, so going forward, during replay events, we will disable these mission perks specifically so as not to affect bonuses on other maps.

Event Dates

2/09/22 - 2/16/22 (1 week)

Event Activities

The Valentines Coelacanth can be captured to obtain chibis, chocolates, and candies. They can be easily differentiated as they have little hearts around them.

Mating creatures can randomly drop chocolates and candies.
