ARK Eggcellent Adventure (2022): Release Date, Start Time, New Skins, and More

ARK Eggcellent Adventure (2022): Release Date, Start Time, New Skins, and More


April 1, 2022

April 1 Update: The ARK Devs have confirmed the return of Eggcellent Adventure, which returns on Monday, April 11th until Monday, April 25th.

Some parts of the ARK Eggcellent Adventure can be manually activated with the server console parameter all year round, but the proper event comes around only once a year. Pretty soon players will need to be once more on the lookout for wild Bunny Dodo’s and Bunny Oviraptor’s to gather Bunny Eggs for some eggcellent loot. Or alternatively, place down Bunny Eggs to paint on them, or use them in a Crafting Pot to craft special holiday-themed cosmetics. Whatever you decide to do, the annual ARK Easter event is set to return very soon. So, when does the next ARK Eggcellent Adventure event start in 2022? Here’s everything you need to know.

When Does The ARK Eggcellent Adventure Event Start?

CONFIRMED: ARK Eggcellent Adventure 7 starts Monday, April 11th and ends Monday, April 25th.

ARK Survival Evolved usually releases the Eggcellent Adventure event 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 to see the dates for when the event has previously started and ended in the past. As you can see, the Eggcellent Adventure event has traditionally started in the final week of March or early April – with the event normally starting on a Tuesday. This all sort of depends on when Easter occurs each year (it’s never the same dates). In 2022, Easter is on Sunday 17 April. With all this information at our disposal, we suspect that the ARK Eggcellent Adventure event will start on April 5, 2022. As for a start time, these events normally have a start time of 1 PM PST / 9 PM GMT.

For now, this hasn’t been confirmed as official by Studio Wildcard, so take this prediction with a pinch of salt for the time being.
