The Aberration pack is now available on the Nintendo Switch version of Ark: Survival Evolved. This is the second massive expansion pack and features a sci-fi and vertigo-inducing bioluminescent cave system where survivors are dropped on a damaged radioactive Ark. This new expansion also offers lush underground biomes containing exotic new creatures, plus craftable and obtainable new gear.

Aberration is the second expansion pack for the game after the desert-themed Scorched Earth. This latest expansion can be downloaded for free to those who own Ark: Ultimate Survivor’s Edition, also available through the Ark Season Pass or Ark: Ultimate Survivor Edition Upgrade.

Waking Up to New Challenges

The Aberration is a derelict and malfunctioning Ark with an elaborate underground biome system where survivors can encounter:

  • Exotic new challenges unlike anything before
  • Extreme radioactive sunlight and environmental hazards
  • Ziplines
  • Wingsuits
  • Climbing gear
  • Cave dwellings
  • Charge-batteries

Players should keep a close watch on the stable of extraordinary new creatures which await within the mysterious depths. Be sure not to face off against the “Nameless,” unrelenting and Element-infused humanoids that evolved into vicious and light-baiting monstrosities.

Season Pass Freebies

By the way, those who already have the Season Pass also get extra in-game Aberration-themed cosmetic item skins including:

  • The Bulbdog Mask
    • Represents the cheery demeanor of this loyal ward against the Nameless.
  • The Reaper Helmet
    • Depicts the frightening visage of these dangerous behemoths that roam the Element-infused depths and irradiated surface of Aberration.
  • The Aberration Helmet
    • Formed from the damaged ARK's obsidian-like underground rock.
    • Creates an imposing presence for survivors who wear it.
  • The Aberration Sword
    • Forged from the Element Crystals that run within the deepest chambers of the ARK. Emits a subtle glow to strike fear into your enemies.

New Creatures

Players who own the Nintendo Switch version can also tame new creatures like:

  • Rock Drake
  • Lantern Pets
  • Cave Crustacean

Ark: Survival Evolved is available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Android, and iOS. The game is about surviving in an island filled with dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals, along with natural hazards and hostile human players.
