ARK Is on Sale for Xbox One! Find Out How to Get 25% Off the Game Here!

by on July 8, 2016

Studio Wildcard officially announced this week that update v243 for ARK: Survival Evolved will be hitting the Xbox One version of the game this week. The new update includes the Redwood Forest Biome, the extension of the Snow Biome, new tree-top villages, furry creatures, Gas Masks, Rope Ladders, Tree-House Platforms, Sap Taps and more. A big feature for the update is the gargantuan Titanosaur creature.

In addition, ARK: Survival Evolved will be part of the Microsoft Ultimate Game Sale for Xbox One running from Tuesday, July 25 through Monday July 11. The game will be on sale for 25 percent off the full price for all Xbox One Gold members, and 15 percent off for all Xbox One Silver Members.

The Titanosaur dinosaur is the largest creature in ARK: Survival Evolved. It operates as a mobile super fortress that can ferry obscene amounts of weight, structures, defenses and creatures on its back. It acts as a walking mountain, and it’s a herbivore that crushes creatures and buildings in its path.

The Redwood Biome features giant trees sturdy enough to build treehouses and villages on. This can allow gamers to create a high fortress in the air. Here’s a full list of new content with the update:

New Item: The Chain Bola ammo for ballista turret! Bring huge creatures to their knees, temporarily, by entangling them in these gigantic metal bolas.
New Item: Gas Mask! Avoid diseases and poisonous gas with this protective breathing apparatus.
New Item: Herbivore “TastyCakes”
New Structure: Retractable Rope Ladders! Extend or retract these flimsy ladders, good for letting allies onto your ramparts while keeping the enemy out.
New Structure: Tree Sap Taps! Slowly extract valuable syrup from the great redwoods for use in a variety of new recipes.
New Mechanic: Custom Tripwire Alarm Notifications via SurviveTheArk.com (E-mail and Forum). Optionally Tribes can post to arbitrary URL, if they have a custom system! Now if someone’s raiding your base, you can get on top of it!
GroundClutter effect extended 50% further and +20% more GPU efficiency
Balled Doed’s are no longer invincible to Tamed Dino melee attacks — now just very, very resistant to them.
Magnifying Glass now displays creature Torpor stats (on Wild creatures too).
Tribe Alliances now disabled in Offline Raid mode (too complex to determine if anyone in an Alliance is around), C4/Traps can no longer be placed near Offline-Raid Protected Structures, and Offline-Raid mode now forces all Structures to be Lockable so that players can “Lock” Crop Plots to prevent their turrets from being disabled.
New Server option to prevent tribe alliances
Engagement with Wild Naturally-Fleeing & Small creatures (tiny bugs etc) no longer trigger combat music
Tamed Dinos that are following a submerged allied Target will not attempt to float to the surface of the water, but rather will attempt to stay at the depth of their allied Target. (helpful when deliberately going deep-diving your tamed land Dinos). However, Dinos that are capable of suffocating will try to surface if they are out of Oxygen regardless!
Vaults can no longer be dropped onto saddle platforms.
Transfer-All/Drop-All methods now only drop/transfer what is currently disabled in the inventory, respecting any filters/folders you may have active (so for example, if you’re within a folder, it will only transfer those items, or if you have a text filter active, etc).
Fixed an issue where pillars were not being calculated correctly as foundations when building pillars downwards
Dedicated Server Save-Backups
Memory saving & cpu performance increase approximately 5%

ARK: Survival Evolved is due out for a full release later this year for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and Steam PC. The game is currently available for Xbox One through Microsoft’s Game Preview and for PC through Steam’s Early Access Program.
