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.

  • 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

Last major release: 275.0

Xbox One

Version: 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.
