About This Content

Explore a cold and hostile Norse-inspired archipelago in ARK's newest official community map, featuring four new creatures for you to collect! Fjordur contains over 140 square kilometers of new biomes, new challenges, and rewarding discoveries!

Traverse a fantastical multi-layered wonderland with a frosty Nordic theme. Four unique islands, Vardiland, Vannaland, Bolbjord and Balheimr, and the mystical realms; Jotunheim, Vanaheim, and Asgard, offer elaborate cave systems resplendent with Scandinavian ruins and vast monolithic entrances. Take a well-trodden hallowed path to pay respects at the immense and sacred world tree, Yggdrasil. Vestiges of ancient dwarven kingdoms harken to a lost era, the remnants of which lend an awe inspiring history to the world of Fjordur. This beautiful and mythic world invites Survivors to a deeply forested land of bygone wonder and exploration!

Fjordur is the second community map released with completely new creatures, and the second to include another creature chosen by the ARK community. Unleash a tank-like fury from atop the saddle of your Andrewsarchus, explore with the Fjordhawk, ARK's newest shoulder pet companion, travail the icy landscape accompanied by your frosty Fenrir, or drain your enemies' and foes' lifeforce with the Desmodus!

Fjordur includes:

  • New Creature: Andrewsarchus! This scavenger whippomorpha is robust in the midst of battle with a saddle scaling with armor and damage. Mount the minigun equipped saddle to this resilient beast and hold on tight!
  • New Creature: Desmodus! This eerie creature is gifted with echo-location, blood-sucking, and wall latching abilities along with a unique sanguine elixir that will help you enthrall the most stubborn creatures
  • New Creature: Fjordhawk! A playful and intelligent avian companion, it will retrieve on command for its owner and even collect your belongings if you meet misfortune
  • New Creature: Fenrir! Legends say that this wintry wolf can only be obtained by conquering the beast in its frozen realm. Once mastered Fenrir will aid you with its icy abilities, crowd control, and slows.
  • Only survivors worthy enough to surpass the ultimate test and defeat the mighty Fenrir are able to wield the lightning-imbued hammer, Mjolnir. This first of its kind skin includes additional abilities worthy of Thor, himself! Once equipped, Survivors can utilize this weapon’s godlike powers to devastate foes with shocking ease as they harness the elemental power of lightning!
  • Use the ancient power of the runes to summon world bosses, Hati and Skoll along with Steinbearn and Baelur. Defeat these mighty archetypes in order to progress to the showdown with the revered bosses of old before the ultimate battle against the mighty Fenrir.
  • A map of icy splendor with four islands: Vardiland, Vannaland, Bolbjord & Balheimr inviting you to explore cold beautiful forests, breathtaking landscapes, and the mystical realms of Jotunheim, Vanaheim, and Asgard.
  • More than 25 dangerous caves nestled amid the 140 square kilometers of Fjordur are waiting to be spelunked.
  • Encounter and tame a variety of ARK creatures from all DLC’s

Mature Content Description

The developers describe the content like this:

Mature Content, specifically violence, can occur against other players or creatures within the fantasy setting of our game at any time and is not gated. This would primarily be demonstrated when players use their fists, melee weapons, ranged weapons, or tamed creatures against other players and/or other creatures. Violence may also be demonstrated when wild npc creatures choose to attack player characters and/or other wild or tamed creatures within the game world. Depictions of and reactions to violence (by targeted player character or creature) are not realistically portrayed and the level of blood associated with these acts is mild and limited.
