What is ARK: Survival Evolved?

As a man or woman stranded, naked, freezing, and starving on the unforgiving shores of a mysterious island called ARK, use your skill and cunning to kill or tame and ride the plethora of leviathan dinosaurs and other primeval creatures roaming the land. Hunt, harvest resources, craft items, grow crops, research technologies, and build shelters to withstand the elements and store valuables, all while teaming up with (or preying upon) hundreds of other players to survive, dominate... and escape!

The game was released on August 29th, 2017 after being over two years in 'Early Access' and is available on Steam, the Xbox Live Marketplace, and PlayStation 4 with continually new updates in the open-world dinosaur survival game.

Dino TLC - The Direbear

  • Sniff tertiary ability to indicate nearby explorer notes, or to detect buried/stealth creatures

Dino TLC - The Rex

  • Receives a model update, animation update, and some new abilities:
  • Its roar should receive a CD and make non-allies (under a certain dragweight) poop to act as a small stun/interrupt. There will be a cooldown on victims so that they cannot be pooplocked continuously.
  • The roar will not be able to scare anything above its level
  • Roar will cause players to poop but not stun them
  • Rex's ability to climb over small rocks and steeper slopes have been improved.


Playstation 4

Version: 520.0
Released - February 23, 2018

Important notice regarding the upcoming turret change: as of v520 turrets will be hard-number limited to 100. This means that you will not be able to build over 100 turrets within a 10k unit radius, however existing set-ups with over 100 turrets will still function as normal until the a future date yet to be announced when we will enable the hard limit, which will retroactively disable (randomly selected) turrets that are over the 100 limit from functioning.
