Ragnarok is a free, official, non-canonical DLC expansion map for ARK: Survival Evolved.

Ragnarok was released on June 12, 2017 for the PC, Mac and Linux version of ARK, and for consoles on August 29, 2017.[1] Half of the map was finished at PC release date and 75% at console's release. The map was declared 99% finished for PC in December 2017 and consoles in January 2018.

The Norse Map

Regions of the DLC Map Ragnarok


Ragnarok adds several new creatures, such as the  Ice Wyvern,  Iceworm Male,  Dire Polar Bear, and  Griffin, as well as 4 new dungeon bosses: the  Spirit Dire Bear and  Spirit Direwolf, the  Iceworm Queen and the  Lava Elemental. It's a whole new map that boasts an expansive 144 sq. kilometer environment, an active volcano, species from DLC Scorched Earth, and higher than average spawn rates of  Megalania and  Ovis (creatures that are harder to find on other maps). On Ragnarok there are unique  Beaver Dams; they are bigger and look more like beaver dams in real life.  Beavers can live in the Dams, too.

Creatures tamed and items received on official Ragnarok servers can be brought to the vanilla map The Island,[2] except Polar Bears.

Unique Environmental Features.

  • An active volcano that will erupt creating lava flows and cause meteors to rain down.
  •  Basilosaurus corpses scattered along the beaches.
  • Boxes scattered around the beaches that can be broken to get equipment.
  • Massive Beaver Dams.
  • Ruins and sunken viking boats scattered around the map including a castle overlooking viking bay.
  • Occasional Wind Storms.
  • Various easter eggs such as a Shrek hut and Jats face scattered around the map.
  • Hot springs with stone benches on which you can sit and get the rested buff.


Ragnarok is approximately 2.5x the size of The Island, in terms of land mass, and roughly 4x in total size. These calculations do not account for the significant, wide-ranging cave networks, and sizable dungeons.

Here you see some pictures taken in the editor at same scale to show you how big Ragnarok is.

Unique Creatures

Additionally, ARK: Survival Ascended's release of Ragnarok will bring the  Gigantoraptor.

Other Spawns

In other words, all creatures from The Island and Scorched Earth can be found somewhere on the map, except the  Leedsichthys, the  Alpha Leedsichthys, the  Polar Bear (in the Snow Cave, Ragnarok has its own Dire Polar Bear), the  Polar Purlovia, the  Yeti, the  Phoenix, the  Rubble Golem, the  Alpha Deathworm, the  Attack Drone, the  Defense Unit, the  Broodmother Lysrix, the  Megapithecus, and the  Overseer.

Event Creatures

Creatures that only spawned during an Event:


All items from the base game, and most items from Scorched Earth (not all Tekgrams) are unlockable on Ragnarok.

  • The map was never truly completed, remaining at about 98-99% complete. Most ambient sounds are missing, the reef biome offshore of the Deathsands remains barren, buggy and nearly uninhabitable due to lack of life and resources, and several other issues that affect the world. There seems to be no current effort to complete it.
  • In Norse mythology, Ragnarok refers to doomsday, in which a series of future events take place and the universe is reborn.
  • Like Scorched Earth, the creatures that Ragnarok adds are primarily based on fantasy.
  • This is the first map to have custom Mini-Bosses.
  • All 3 Mini-Bosses made for Ragnarok don't have a unique dermis, they instead are of the basic creatures, so the  Lava Elemental dermis will show a rock elemental instead, the  Iceworm Queen will show a deathworm, and both the  Spirit Direbear and  Spirit Direwolf will show their normal counterparts.
  • A unique harvestable resource in Ragnarok are the beached  Basilosaurus, found in the Highlands on beaches. They yield  Spoiled Meat,  Hide,  Keratin and a little bit of  Oil.
  • In the Swamp, a house in a rock can be found as well as an outhouse. This is a reference to the movie Shrek.
  • At the south of the map, there is an island that is united to land by a bridge, this is based on the Gaztelugatxe, in Spain.
  • This is the first official mod map to introduce new creatures.
  • This is the first official mod map to use Scorched Earth creatures.
  • Despite the acclaim for its size, the new Crystal Isles and Genesis: Part 2 maps are bigger.
  • There was a known bug when the water in redwoods could turn blood because devs used the code of rag water for the forbidden zone on Extinction.
  • On Patch 267.0, the  Ice Wyvern was remodeled and was now uploadable.
  • There is a total of 183 reigons on Ragnarok
