Ark: Survival Evolved Gets Big Update on Xbox One

There’s a new update out for the Xbox One version of ARK: Survival Evolved, it adds a few things, including a new creature.

Version v730 adds the giant rideable prehistoric kangaroo “Procoptodon.” The new creature moves quickly over terrain, and can seat two players – one controls Procoptodon, while the other can fight from the pouch.

In Version v730, players should also expect:

  • Dino rebalancing
  • The addition of a primitive cage and stone fireplace items
  • Fixed Cave Loading crash/fall-thru
  • Improved performance: better framerate, less stalls
  • Fixed crosshair not appearing
  • Fixed potential loss of character save data in local mode
  • Fixed fur armor colorization
  • Improved speed of server listing
  • Fixed Taming Dinos losing Inventories/messed-up-Inventories upon reloading single player save game
  • Fixed a memory leak that was typically causing crashes around the Volcano area

Regarding the dinosaur rebalancing, here are the details:

  • +25% Bronto base HP and +20% on its platform-saddle Armor Rating
  • Base HP of Ptero and Arg +20% each
  • Ptero attack damage +25% and its barrel roll damage by 40%
  • Carno Head Butt Damage +25%

It’s nice to see the devs at Wildcard Studios continuing to polish ARK on both PC and Xbox One. The game is already a very solid experience, with months to go before its official release.

ARK: Survival Evolved will launch in summer 2016 on Xbox One via the ID@Xbox program, PlayStation®4 with Project Morpheus support, and full release on Steam PC.
