NEW CREATURES (click to learn more about each one)


  • New ruines for players to explore
  • Biomes including jungles, snow, mangrove swamps, and redwood forests

ARK Lost Island Map


  • This is the first free DLC map to introduce three unique creatures, as opposed to one.
  • This is the first map to have a contest to decide the second creature, with players coming up with a real life creature and voting on it to appear on the map. The voting was started with Community Crunch 276 and ending July 23rd, with both Dinopithecus and Carcharodontosaurus receiving mostly equal votes, and eventually, the Dinopithecus winning by 1% against the Carcharodontosaurus.
  • All of the new creatures appear to be anti-armor and travel based,
    • the Armagasaurus can rip through higher tier armor and saddles and is fast(for a sauropod) plus decent swimming speed
    • the Dinopithecus can disable tek armor with it’s poop and can climb walls and cliffs
    • the Sinomacrops is a gliding buddy and HATES chitin armor
  • This map is visibly inspired by the Tamriel map from the famous Bethesda gaming franchise.
  • The map size is: 150 square kilometers.
  • This Update was originally created by LostIsland
