Current Patch Notes

PC - 275.33

Released - 14 December, 2017

  • Fix for Sarcos spawning in beginner portal pool
  • Wild non-alpha Reaper Kings no longer grant XP
  • Platform switch collision is improved to allow you to easily directly climb onto it with a ladder attached to the elevator track
  • Wood elevator platform weight limit increased
  • Wood elevator can now be lifted while it's falling to stop it, and you can now repeatedly click the lift command without having to re-open the action wheel
  • Remaining fix for Mod Class replacements
  • Postprocessing Error fix
  • Players who are getting D3D Device Lost Error should try running with "-norhithread" in launch arguments. If that resolves the problem, we'll be able to implement an automatic fix in next update.


Xbox - 768.0

Released - December 12, 2017

  • ARK: Aberration Expansion Pack!
  • Implemented Turret Counter on HUD in preparation for Turret Count Limiting (clamping how many Turrets can be built in an area on servers, to dramatically improve server performance).
  • Added "Heavy Turret", which packs approximately 4 times the power of a regular Turret and has faster tracking, but uses 4 Ammo per shot. On Official Servers, in preparation for ultimately limiting all Turrets to 100 within a 10,000 unit range, only 100 Heavy Turrets can be placed in a 10000 unit range, including ALL Auto Turrets & Plant Turrets within that range.
  • Imprinting intervals increased from 4hrs to 8hrs between each imprint. Each imprint gives a large amount of imprint bonus per imprinting.
  • Shader models improved.


PS4 - 518.0

Released - December 12, 2017

  • ARK: Aberration Expansion Pack!
  • Implemented Turret Counter on HUD in preparation for Turret Count Limiting (clamping how many Turrets can be built in an area on servers, to dramatically improve server performance).

SotF - 178.1
