Survival sim Ark: Survival Evolved is to get a serious content update soon, developer Studio Wildcard announced today.
They’re calling it the TEK Tier, and the update is being pitched as endgame content that will reward players who really put the work in. Rewarded with what? Outlandishly cool sci-fi armour, weapons, gear and structures – which is literally a world away from the dinosaur-based survival in the main game at present.
According to the developers:
The TEK Tier will put players in power armor granting them advanced abilities, and add powerful TEK saddles with mounted energy weapons to the capabilities of some favorite dinos. Want to snipe at enemy tribes with a plasma rifle while tearing across the map with a jet pack? How about living under the ocean in a vacuum sealed Underwater Base, fully protected from the hazards of land and sky?

Although there’s no firm release date yet, Studio Wildcard’s plan is to have the free TEK Tier roll out gradually on both PC and Xbox One over the coming weeks and months.
