The latest update for the Xbox One version of Ark: Survival Evolved has arrived, and it gives users the chance to try out split screen.
Studio Wildcard has had Ark in early access on the PC since June 2nd, 2015, and it joined the Xbox One not too long after. Although the game is still in its beta stages, Studio Wildcard doesn’t seem to be slowing down with content.
Along with split screen, the new update includes three new creatures, as well as changes to the game that will bring it to version 234. You can take a look at the list of updates below. (source)
- Gallimimus (with Three-Seater Passenger Saddle)
While the Gallimimusin real life might have been a large, chicken-like omnivore belonging to the clade Ornithomimosauria (similar to today’s ostrich family and closely related to raptors and modern birds), in ARK: Survival Evolved it’s an herbivore with no natural means to defend itself except for running away. Luckily for the Gallimimus, it may very well be the fastest dinosaur on ARK, and is capable of ferrying up to three Survivors in a specially-designed Saddle!
Known as everyone’s favorite adaptable carnivore, the Dimetrodon offers players shade during excessive heat and shelter from extreme cold by way of its massive insulating sail running down its back. It is reasonably friendly to Survivors and its favorite place to roam is the swamplands plentiful with small prey.
- Dung Beetle
The Dung Beetle is a wondrous organic biofactory that eats excrement and other useless waste and then metabolizes it to produce burnable oil that can power generators and fertilize crops. It is the perfect pet for cleaning up around the tribe’s dirty living quarters!
- New Armor
SWAT-style Assault Armor tier
- New Weapon
Electric Prod stunner weapon capable of rendering even the strongest survivor unconscious
- New Structures
Greenhouse/Glass structure tileset to aid survivors in growing plants
- Deep-Sea Loot Crates
Just what it sounds like. Cool stuff underwater.
- Beer Barrel
These craftable Beer kegs can make tasty brews, with various status enhancing effects, however the subsequent ‘hangover’ effects are not so pleasant!
- Loads of bug fixes, serious performance update (~15%), fixed memory leak
- Non-dedicated servers now support up to Eight survivors and 33% larger tether distance
