Are you ready to celebrate the holidays in Ark: Survival Evolved? The wait won't be too long since Winter Wonderland 7 is scheduled this Wednesday, December 14. Players can look forward to a brand-new narrative content with Madeleine Madden (The Wheel of Time) reprising her role as Helena Walker, and David Tennant (Doctor Who) also returning as Sir Edmund Rockwell. This event ends January 5.

Besides the two stars, what else can players expect from this year's Winter Wonderland? For starters, RaptorClaus will be sailing on star-filled night sky in his sleigh and dropping off presents full of high-end loot as well as mistletoe, however, naughty Survivors are getting coal. Players can catch RaptorClaus flying across the skies at midnight (game time) on all maps.

Helping RaptorClaus spread the holiday cheer is none other than GachaClaus. He'll be going around all maps looking for those eager recipients while wearing holiday-themed colors. He has no problems receiving coal, and of course mistletoe, and exchanging them with holiday-themed items, such as skins, costumes, weapons, armor, or even 12 new Chibis.
