Summer is here, and ARK presents its players with another Summer Bash this year. It comes with limited-time benefits like XP boosts, unique items, and different-colored creatures. With that, let's take a deep dive into the ARK Summer Bash 2023.

ARK Summer EVO Event (ARK Summer Bash 2023)

ARK Summer Bash First, take a trip down memory lane to see what the previous ARK Summer Bash events had in store for players. For instance, ARK Summer Bash started in 2019 and has been a part of the game’s list of events every year. The first instance had boosted XP rates, along with skins and event-colored creature spawns. In 2020, ARK introduced additional colors to creature spawns in the event’s second iteration. Plus, the developing studio added summer-themed items and Chibi-pets while the event was active. For the third ARK Summer Bash, Studio Wildcard added extra summer-themed skins. This event also brought the XP boosts to other servers, particularly the ARKpocalypse, Conquest, and Small Tribe Servers. As for last year’s Summer EVO event, it comes with more colors for dinosaur spawns. Additionally, the XP boosts, skins, emotes, and Chibi-Pets released from previous instances return.
