ARK Lost Island
Origin and release
ARK Lost Island, was released in December 2021 and is an official free DLC for ARK: Survival Evolved.
ARK Lost Island was created by the community with great attention to detail, and then officially included in the game by developer “Studio Wildcard”. The map was developed by Alexand90575037.
ARK Lost Island offers a completely new game experience for ARK fans, very detailed landscapes as well as many new secrets, biomes and monsters to discover.
Lost Island Monsters
Of course, ARK Lost Island also offers a large selection of monsters and dinosaurs that you can encounter everywhere. In total, there are about 150 different creatures on the map. Certain biomes are home to different monsters. So if you want to see all the monsters, you’ll have to take a good look around the map and visit all the areas.
Unique Lost Island monsters
As the first official community map, ARK Lost Island offers three different, unique monsters that can’t be found anywhere else – the Amargasaurus, Dinopithecus and Sinomacrops. All three monsters are completely different in design, strengths, weaknesses and benefits.
The Armagasaurus Titancius has an aggressive temperament, is very nimble for its size and is also a pretty good swimmer. So escaping into the cold water is not necessarily a good option if you have angered this fellow species. It also has a series of spikes on its back that it can use as a weapon. Once shot, these can cause thermal effects like fire and ice.
The Dinopithecus Anedmundius looks a bit like a Mandrill monkey and can climb along walls accordingly. It can also throw its poop at you, which disables Tek armor. When he appears in larger groups he usually shows aggressive behavior. These characteristics make him a remarkable and combative opponent.
Visually, the Sinomacrops Bondei resembles a mix of a butterfly and a bat in dinosaur form, which makes it look very cute in a way. Most of the time it is a very docile fellow, which players can even use as a “flying aid” if it sits on their shoulders. He also has the ability to enchant enemies.
ARK Lost Island Biomes
ARK Lost Island offers a huge selection of biomes and locations to explore. Fans of role-playing games will notice a certain similarity to the Tamriel region from The Elder Scrolls when looking at the world map. An inspiration in the map design cannot be denied. The size of the map is about 150km², which makes it larger than “The Island”, “Scorched Earth” and “The Center” together.
Each of the biomes has not only a unique look, but also different monsters and creatures, as well as resources. There are also some very special areas.
