ARK Valentines Event 2023 (Start Time, Event Rates & Colors)

ARK Valentines EVENT

While some players may have been expecting another Love Evolved Event to come in 2023, things will be different this time.

With Ark 2 in the oven, things are about to change, especially events in Ark Survival Evolved but there are still many surprises waiting.

This time, Studio Wildcard will be kicking things off with the Valentine’s EVO event, which is supposed to be a new experience for everyone.

How To Get Love Evolved Items?

With the past events now set aside, you may be wondering if there is a way to still get the items from the Love Evolved Event.

This is still possible as these skins and cosmetics are now available from the HLNA shop, which you can purchase with Hexagons.

To make things simple, event items have now been moved to the HLNA shop as the game is now preparing for new surprises to come.

Valentine’s Evo Start Date

The Valentine’s Evo start date is set to be on February 10 2023 and will last up to February 20, 2023, giving you a whole week to enjoy the event.

This change in the game will give players a chance to get new goodies and experience even more fun during the event and afterward.
