Summer has arrived in long-running online dino-survival game ARK: Survival Evolved. What better way to celebrate the season than running around in a stuffy, full-body costume in the sweltering heat?

The third annual ARK Summer Bash event adds the classic inflatable T-Rex costume, along with over 35 summer-themed outfits, such as new Hawaiian shirts and swimsuits, along with cute new pets and fun emotes. The event ends July 14.

Here is a total list of all the new goodies:

  • Hula Dance Emote
  • Flip In Place Emote
  • Inflatable T-Rex costume
  • 3 Hawaiian Shirt patterns
  • 3 Swimsuit patterns
  • Retro Sunglasses Skin
  • Floppy Straw Summer Hat Skin
  • Angler Hat Skin
  • Maewing pet
  • Spacedolphin pet
  • Voidwyrm pet
  • Deal With It Dodo pet
  • Straw Hat Otter pet

Many previous Summer Bash event skins, emotes, and pets also return.

It also wouldn’t be an event without a big numbers boost. Throughout the event, harvest, taming, and breeding is increased to three times the normal rates on Official servers, 4.5 times the rate on Small Tribe and Conquest servers, and 5 times on ARKPocalypse servers.

ARK is currently on sale during the Steam Summer Sale for 67% off. It’s also available on PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, and mobile devices.
