Ark Survival Evolved for Xbox One has sold considerably well since its Game Preview release, with it proving to be a rather popular title. This week, the open world dinosaur survival title received its first big patch, which also added a new dinosaur into the mix.
The patch, numbered v231.9 is now just behind where the PC is with its updates, as the PC players received a New Year’s update too, adding more new features and critters. Watch the video below of the new Procoptodon, a kangeroo-like dino that carries two players, and see the patch notes below.
- 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
One of Ark’s biggest issues still, is the lack of servers. Maybe it’s not even that, maybe it’s just that the game is so popular that the number of servers seem so thin in comparison. Studio Wildcard will be adding more servers soon, hopefully of all varieties to get more people online. Fair dues to the developers however, as they seem to have a console hit on their hands here!
