Eggcellent Adventure Returns & Community Crunch 124!



Beginning Thursday March 29th until April 10th, survivors will be able to experience the "Eggcellent Adventure" Event!



During Eggcellent Adventure, survivors will be able to collect special "Bunny Eggs" across the ARK from wild Bunny Dodo's and Bunny Oviraptor's. These Bunny Eggs can paint or used in special Cooking Pot recipes to craft holiday-themed items such as Bunny Ears, a Bunny Costume for the Procoptodon, are two brand new cosmetics: the Knitted Chick Hat and Egg Shell Hat for both survivor and dino!


  • Wild creatures roaming the ARKs will also find themselves feeling eggcellent, sporting bright colours of Green, Magenta, Yellow, and Blue.
  • Wild Dodos are replaced by Bunny Dodos  - with ears, taming disabled, and drop 50% consumable dodo eggs and 50% Bunny eggs
  • Wild Oviraptors are replaced by Bunny Oviraptors - with ears, taming disabled, and drop 50% consumable Oviraptor eggs and 50% Bunny Eggs
  • Bunny Eggs can be placed on the ground and painted
  • Bunny Eggs will expire after approximately two weeks from inventories, and placed eggs will immediately decay once the event is turned off.
  • Run your private server with '-ActiveEvent=Easter' to turn on the event
  • Running the same server without -ActiveEvent=Easter will delete all placed egg structures
  • Players can use Steam > ARK > Properties > General > Set Launch Options and paste in -ActiveEvent=Easter to experience the event in single player/non-dedicate/player dedicated worlds. You must enable the event yourself in these modes.
  • Event is not available in Primitive Plus.
Be on the lookout on our social media for a confirmed start and end date on official servers. We're aiming for this weekend if our console cert process is successful! PC single player and PC unofficial servers will be able to turn on the event as early as tomorrow after our weekly patch, if you so wish.
