Ark: Survival Evolved Runs Turkey Trial Till Tuesday

Hunt some Super Turkeys

Today's the day our Stateside friends move their belts up a notch after yesterday's mashed potatoes and turkey binge. Thanksgiving may be over for another year, but Ark: Survival Evolved [official site] is still running its Turkey Trial event until Tuesday, December 1st. It's a good old-fashioned turkey hunt, with the twist that harvesting their 'Super Turkey Wishbones' will let you craft something special. And there are fire-breathing DodoRexs. Yeah. Need to see that action? I don't blame you:

"By harvesting sufficient Super Turkey Wishbones from these bloodthirsty, genetically-modified creatures," reads the update's blurb, "players can craft their very own stylish 'Chieftain' Hat, or choose to summon the devastating DodoRex creature to do their bidding for a limited period of time."

So what will you do? Will you chase these little gobblers around on foot, or will you mount a "god-like DodoRex" and set fire to the village? Off the back of Ark's skeleton-satisfying Halloween update, I'm enjoying its playful holiday events. I wonder what it's got in store for Christmas?

If you're yet to try Ark: Survival Evolved, it lives on Early Access and is going for £13.79/$17.99 with a 40% discount until the end of the Steam Autumn Sale. All going to plan, it's scheduled for a June 2016 full release.
