We can't wait to see which creature reigns victorious in the fourth Community Creature Vote!

We are excited to see which creature will be added to Scorched Earth for ARK: Survival Ascended!
Now that submissions for creatures have closed, the second round of voting begins now[] until May 1st at 4 PM Pacific.

The winner* will be announced in the Crunch Friday, May 5th 2023.

  • Rank the creatures in order of most preferred to least preferred
  • The vote is limited to 1 submission per person (duplicate entries will be discarded)

Below are the candidates that have made it into the final 10. Find out more information about the creature by clicking on the hyperlink attached to the name.Overview of all the finalists here[].
