While Eggcellent Adventure 5 may not offer much in the form of full-featured quests, there's a decent amount of content to behold with regard to crafting and cosmetics. Chibis have become a holiday favorite in recent months, and these latest festivities provide access to all previous Chibis plus six new ones. Despite a dearth of new skins, survivors will be able to collect items from past years as well if they haven't already. Eggcellent Adventure isn't as involved as Turkey Trial or Winter Wonderland before it, but, considering everything here was likely created under atypical development circumstances, it's a nice gift for players nonetheless.

For those who haven't experienced Eggcellent Adventure before, its basic premise revolves around collecting Bunny Eggs from Bunny Dodo's scattered across the map in the usual places one might find a Dodo. They offer Bunny Eggs, which can then be used to craft most of the items listed above. For a change in color, seek out a Bunny Oviraptor. These drop Dino Candy, which can change your favorite creature's hue. Essentially all you've got to do is farm Dodo's to get some cool skins. This event arrives after several Genesis balance patches designed to address issues with tames, meshing exploits and more.

ARK: Survival Evolved is available now on PC, Xbox, PS4, Switch, Mac and Linux. Eggcellent Adventure 5 is deploying now across all major platforms.
