Seattle, WA - June 15, 2018 - Dinosaur hype is at its peak as the Jurassic blockbuster prepares to invade movie screens next week! Developer Studio Wildcard is excited as well, celebrating today by launching a new in-game event for its action-adventure dinosaur survival game, ARK: Survival Evolved. Dubbed “ARKaeology”, this time-limited event encourages players to search the multiple ARKs for fossil mounds, which, when scavenged, will reveal dinosaur bones which can be used to create special skins in a cooking pot. These collectible skins include the popular "Skeleton Dinos" from previous Fear Evolved events, along with the following -

  • Dilophosaurus Mask (Hat Skin)
  • Brachiosaurus (Brontosaurus Costume)
  • Stygimoloch (Pachycephalosaurus Costume)
  • Styracosaurus (Triceratops Costume) 
The ARKaeology event also brings with it the sci-fi themed battle beast - the Tek Rex - for players to tame, ride and breed. Tek Rex is, as the name implies, a rare, specially armored T-Rex that can achieve a higher level than its standard brethren.


Since its launch into Steam’s early access program in June 2015, over 13 Million survivors have been stranded on the ARK island, wandering into an incredible land to discover how to tame, train, ride, and breed the 100+ dinosaurs and primeval creatures roaming the land.
