As you well know by now, ARK: Survival Evolved is one of the fastest growing Early Access titles to ever hit Steam. It's broken records at breakneck speed. And it's actually been enjoyable to play in its beta state. This week is Jurassic week, so below are the details on what to expect for the screenshot contest featured this week in ARK: Survival Evolved.
Jurassic ARK: Survival Evolved Daily Screenshot Contest Guide
What a way to promote their game and interest in dinosaurs in general than to piggy back on one of the most prolific movie series of our time. I wonder if they planned ARK: Survival Evolved's Early Access release around the release of the next Jurassic Park. It's too good of a promotion.
And of course no special themed week wouldn't be complete without a contest that tests your skills at making unique and awesome memes based on that theme. Memes are a powerful force and we need more of them. So if you have the guts and the skill to take fanciful screenshots, you may just win the ARK: Survival Evolved daily screenshot contest, which means real-world prizes. The rules are posted below, so get that F12 (default Steam screenshot button) button pressing ready.
Daily Screenshot Contest
Each day three winners will be selected whose ARK in-game screenshots or video best fits the daily theme. The first place winner will receive a $100 Fandango e-card, second place will receive a $50 Fandango e-card and third place will receive a $25 e-card. Send entries to email@example.com. Winners will be announced on the ARK Steam forums at 5pm EST each day.
- Thursday: “Coolest Tribe” - Get your Tribe posing together and showcase your creativity.
- Friday: “Most Epic Environmental Shot” - ARK is filled with amazing vistas and incredibly detailed environments. Find your favorite area, position the shot and send it in.
- Saturday: “Official Server Broodmother Trophy Shot” – One of three Primal Gods who watch over ARK, the Broodmother Lysrix stands as a giant over all other creatures. Always accompanied by a vanguard of her broodlings, the Broodmother stands ready to take all challengers who might, in their hubris, seek to oppose her. You must get a conquering shot (with Pause Menu to confirm the official server) and send it in to qualify. Bring friends, you will likely die!
- Sunday: Line up every tamed creature you have on an Official PvP Server (denoted by the pause menu). Impress us with the amount and diversity of creatures you have trained.
- Bonus Entry: Each day during the contest a new Jurassic ARK meme from the community will be promoted in the Steam community forum and released from @survivetheark.
Also don't forget that this Friday will be a special event to mark the release of Jurassic World. The Spinosaurus will stalk the waterways and be available as a combat mount. There is sure to be a lot of destruction and chaos tomorrow, and of course more details concerning that event will be available then.
So get out there and make some of the most gorgeous screenshots you can for a chance for great prizes. Winning real stuff for playing video games is always a good thing.
