ARK Survival Evolved Celebrates 1-Year Anniversary



ARK: Survival Evolved is celebrating their 1-year anniversary today with a loads of new content and a brand new trailer to show it all off.

Two new creatures will be heading to ARK: the Diplodocus, a sturdy slow-moving dinosaur capable of carrying as many as 10 simultaneous players, and the horrific Leech, a nasty disease-carrying blood-sucker that attaches to you en masse.

But the biggest edition is literally the Dragon Boss and his arena. Check out all the new additions in the trailer below along with the full patch notes.


Patch #242:

  • Dragon Arena & Dragon Boss Fight
  • Breeding Mechanics Phase 2: Interactive Baby Raising (cuddle with your dino babies, pet, walk, and hand-feed them for extra benefits and greater affinity for whomever raised them once they grow up!)
  • Optional RPG Stat Mode: Displays floating in-world damage numbers for all Player-Related Damage Events
  • Added 'Follow Range' (Low/Medium/Far) Setting Per Tamed Dino
  • Added option for PvE Servers to disable building around critical resource node regions
  • Added server option to override per-Item Crafting costs
  • Added server option to override the loot tables for each kind of supply crate
  • Added server option to limit number of members in Tribes. Default: no limit
  • Multi-Seat Saddles (Galli, Diplodocus, etc). Dinos now have an option to enable public seating. Dino Taxi service, ahoy!
  • Servers can now optionally enable an "offline raiding prevention" mode which will make Dinos/Structures invincible if no owner is logged-in (indicated via the head whether the owner player/tribe is logged-in or not). Recommend that server owners utilize this with care, as it may have undesired side effects in a competitive environment
  • Tribe Groups Phase 2: Support for Limited Non-Admin Invites and promotions/demotions per group! Also "Prevent Dino Unclaiming" checkbox, and other new per-rank options
  • Added Alpha Mosasaurus (contains lots of Black Pearls)
  • Alpha creatures XP reduced by 45%
  • Auto-Turrets can no longer be built on Quetz/Sauro/Mosa/Plesi/Paracer platforms (Plant turrets can't be grown on them). Any existing turrets on such platforms will no longer fire. Otherwise they're now only allowed on Rafts and non-moving Bases
  • Plant Turrets now consume Fertilizer per shot, and also will not shoot if no water is in the crop plot
  • Approximate +100% increase to Saurupod and Paraceratherium respective Weight stats
