Studio Wildcard has confirmed the release date and time for the highly anticipated Fjordur Map for Ark: Survival Evolved. The free DLC will include some brand new creatures, a new map, and even Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir.

With the Xbox and Bethesda game showcase taking place this Sunday, it could be a busy weekend for Ark players. Fans and industry insiders believe a further look at Ark II will be revealed at this year’s Summer Game Fest, with the Xbox showcase being the most likely event for an announcement.

Even with the release of Ark II expected sometime this year, Studio Wildcard is still committed to supporting Ark: Survival Evolved, with fans eager to jump into the brand new map this weekend.
