ARK SUMMER BASH (2022): RELEASE DATE, START TIME, NEW SKINS, AND MORE

ARK Summer Bash (2022): Release Date, Start Time, New Skins, and More

 

July 15, 2022

Although the ARK Summer Bash event can be partially activated using a manual server console parameter all year round, there’s something special about the proper event going live.

Whilst development on ARK has more or less stopped as Studio Wildcard prepares for the next game – ARK 2 – they are thankfully continuing with their annual events; and as proved by the 2022 ARK Eggcellent Adventure event, they’re also adding a few new bits of content for fans to enjoy too.

With that in mind, some fans might be wondering when does the ARK Summer Bash event start in 2022? Here’s everything you need to know.

ARK Summer Evo Event Confirmed

Studio Wildcard has announced a slight change to the ARK Summer Bash event. Writing on their latest Community Crunch blogpost the studio told fans that the team had been focused on ARK 2 and the recent launch of Fjordur that they were unable to do a ‘traditional’ Summer Bash event.

Instead, they’re holding a special Summer Evo Event. This includes all of the past Summer Bash colors plus 7 hand-picked new ones with a tropical vibe.

“Throw in special 3x rates on everything including breeding and the ability to get your hands on past Summer Bash items and we think we have a fun little celebration!”

The Summer EVO event will run from July 1st 1PM Pacific to July 15th 1PM Pacific.

Rates

  • Official Servers: 3x XP, Harvesting, Taming, and Breeding (imprint, maturation, hatch/gestation), 0.5x Mating Interval, 1.5x Hexagon Bonus
  • Small Tribe Servers: 4.5x XP, Harvesting, Taming, 4x Breeding (imprint, maturation, hatch/gestation), 0.5x Mating Interval, 1.5x Hexagon Bonus

When Does The ARK Summer Bash Event Start?

Although ARK Survival Evolved has only held the Summer Bash event for a couple of years, they have normally started at (roughly) the same time each year, which makes it easier to work out when the event could start in 2022. If you take a look at the table below you can see the dates for when the event has previously started and ended in the past.

EVENT START DATE END DATE
ARK: Summer Bash 2019 July 2nd, 2019 July 19th, 2019
ARK: Summer Bash 2020 June 25th, 2020 July 21st, 2020
ARK: Summer Bash 2021 June 30th, 2021 July 21st, 2021

As you can see, the Summer Bash event has traditionally started in the final week of June or first week of July. With this in mind we would imagine that the ARK Summer Bash event will start on June 28, 2022 – or slightly thereafter. As for a start time, these events normally have a start time of 1 PM PST / 9 PM GMT. Do remember, this hasn’t been confirmed as official by Studio Wildcard yet, so take this prediction with a pinch of salt for the time being or until we hear more from the developers Community Crunch blog post.
