Winter Wonderland will be making a triumphant return for the fifth time with new presents and goodies for ARK survivors.

All maps will receive Winter Wonderland and all its content including RaptorClaus and GachaClaus.

Our very recognizable helper, RaptorClaus, is returning to drop off holiday gifts filled with loot, event items, mistletoe, and lumps of coal for all those naughty survivors. You’ll be able to catch RaptorClaus flying across the skies at midnight (game time) on all maps.

GachaClaus is also making a come-back to help RaptorClaus spread the holiday cheer! GachaClaus will be roaming all maps in true holiday spirit while sporting holiday-themed colors. He will be accepting your coal and in exchange will gift you holiday-themed items, or you can trade-in your mistletoe and coal for a chance at event items. weapons, armor and 7 brand new Chibis!
