Back by popular demand, Studio Wildcard has launched its third ARK: Survival Evolved Modding Contest to reward the amazing work that the modding community does with the ARK Mod Kit. The contest comes with $28,000 in cash prizes and the Grand Prize winner will receive $15,000! So saddle up those Dev Kits, ready the mod cannons, and prepare for battle!
Interested individuals and teams can now head over to ark.gg/ModContest to get started and to find current information about the contest as it progresses, including hourly updates on rankings once the voting phase starts. All ARK mod creations must be first submitted during the five-week entry phase, followed by a two-week voting phase where all players can show support for their favorite mods.
In June 2015, Studio Wildcard brought the full power of Unreal Engine 4 tools and development resources to the ARK: Survival Evolved modding community with one of the first custom mod editors. Since that time, thousands of bespoke creations have been made available.
Players who have purchased ARK can begin modding immediately! Follow the “How To Mod” tutorial to get started, then join the ARK community, participate in the Unreal Engine ARK Modding forum, and find content in the Unreal Engine Marketplace. Modders can then share their creations with the ARK player community using Steam Workshop.
