As longtime ARK players might notice, Eggcellent Adventure 6 isn't all that different from the Eggcellent Adventure 5 event that took place in 2020. Taking a quick glance at the content that's labeled as "new," the fresh additions for this year's festivities include the Bunny Tail skin, Tail Wiggle emote and five new Chibis to be featured in the game's ever-growing collection of tiny pets. Mechanically speaking, then, much of what players will experience through mid-April is the same as what we've seen before. Survivors will use eggs harvested from Bunny Dodos to craft new and returning skins, while a visit to the Bunny Oviraptor offers a chance at some limited-time Dino Candy. The premise may be simple, but it's still an effective way to enjoy some festive fun.

As for any of the other changes featured in update 2.55, the patch notes are predictably light given that we're less than one week removed from ARK's last major console update. Over the past few days, ARK on PlayStation and Xbox has benefited from fixes for mesh exploits, an improved Crypopod interface and the debut of the final piece of the Genesis Chronicles armor set. There are obviously still a few missing features to retain full parity with PC, but most of those tweaks don't appear to be listed here. In other words, ARK update 2.55 is all about that sweet Easter-inspired fun.

ARK: Survival Evolved is available now on PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, Mac and Linux.
