Ark: Survival Evolved Is Getting A Major New Content Update
v255 Coming to Xbox Very Soon, (And For Free)!
Studio Wildcard, the creators of Ark: Survival Evolved have announced today that players can expect a fresh content pack, (v255) to arrive on Xbox One very, very soon. Players will also be pleased to hear that the update will come as a free download – result!
So what does the new update include?
We have been told to expect, “a plethora” of TEK Tier Technology including a complete set of TEK building structures, an impenetrable, “TEK Forcefield” and customisable, “TEK Outdoors” to complete the futuristic new bases. That in itself wouldn’t be a particularly exciting update so you will also be getting four new creatures as well as additional hair and beard combos for your Survivor.
You can see the trailer for the new update below:
New Creatures Added Today:
Electrophorus Beluadomito – A species of Knifefish, Electrophorus uses an electrical charge to zap its prey, bringing down smaller fish and eels. Tribes have been known to capture and tame schools of Electrophorus in order to use them for taking down larger aquatic animals.
Microraptor Gnarilongus – Resembling a bird with a reptilian face, Microraptor is a vicious predator that is instantly aggressive to anything its size or smaller (including humans). Able to jump, run and do short glides, Microraptor is incredibly dangerous alone or in packs, and when trained, they can even take riders right out of their saddles during combat.
Ammonitina Multiamicus – One of the more unique creatures of the sea, the Ammonite resembles a nautilus, but much bigger. For unknown reasons, an attack on an Ammonite brings forth the wrath of all neighboring sea creatures, who will fervently defend it. This makes it a challenge to kill one, though the rewards are often worth it – the shell itself is valuable (as it is rare) and the bile can be used to concoct a unique new pheromone dart.
Thylacoleo Furtimorsus – Also known as the “marsupial lion”, Thylacoleo is a powerful predator native to the island’s redwood forests. A strong bite – the strongest of any land mammal – and bolt cutter-like teeth, make this creature a formidable ambush predator, leaping from above to crush the necks of its prey.
Additional v255 Content:
– 30+ new Explorer Notes
– Improved Server performance
– Added option for per-Tribe Dino Tame limit, enabling on Official PvE servers with a max of 500 Dinos Per Tribe (with on-screen indicator of Tribe Dino count)
