ARK: Survival Evolved modders have a chance to score some pretty decent cash.


A new ARK: Survival Evolved modding competition has launched, with a $60,000 total prize pool.

There are three categories – Best Mod, Best Map and Best Total Conversion – and each will offer five prizes:

  • 1st Place: $10,000
  • 2nd Place: $5,000
  • 3rd Place: $3,000
  • 4th Place: $2,000
  • 5th Place: $1,000

If this is your first go at modding ARK, be sure to check out the ARK Dev Kit, a more beginner-friendly build of the Unreal Engine 4 editor. You can download it for free via the Epic Games Launcher. You’ll need to use this tool for your entry to be eligible.

Entry is open worldwide until March 15, with winners announced April 15. Get more information and check the full rules and regulations here.
