ARK Survival Evolved Modding Contest

Prepare your bandwidth for downloads because Studio Wildcard have unveiled the finalists for their first ever ARK: Survival Evolved modding contest, leaving it up to the community to vote on which creations from the three categories of Total Conversions, Maps and Mods are the best. The authors of the top five modifications in each category will receive part of a $60,000 prize fund.

Studio Wildcard received over 100 mod entries over the three categories, then individually rated them on their originality, creativity, graphical quality, and overall entertainment value to determine the finalists.
