One of the nicest things about developer Studio Wildcard is its continuous effort in keeping the fans of Ark: Survival Evolved updated. They always find time to keep the fandom up-to-date with whatever stuff they're working on. And this is exactly what they meant by the Community Crunch 85. For anyone who's a fan of the game, this is worth checking out.
In its most organic form, Community Crunch is where players get to be informed about all the important things circling the game. These could go anywhere from bug fixes to new features, among others. Apart from these, it may also include some announcements relating to an upcoming contests or events. In a sense, it works to inform the community.
In the latest edition of the Community Crunch 85, Ark: Survival Evolved will get to know the kind of stuff Studio Wildcard has prepared for. First off, as stated in the official site of the game, there's an Xbox One sale. Players can pick both the game as well as the Scorched Earth at a discounted price for Microsoft's console. They better hurry, though, as the promo ends on March 15.
Adding to the aforementioned is the arrival of a new event, an Evolution Event in particular. This is basically the studio's way of giving back to the players following the server outages that had happened recently. Obviously, it didn't go well for the community, and they in fact expected something bigger from the company. Nonetheless, the developers resorted to an event that'll boost the rates of Harvesting, Taming and EXP. Like the above mention discount, this event will also end on the same date.
The 85th Community Crunch also discusses the Procedurally Generated Map system in Ark: Survival Evolved. This feature allows players to create their own style of maps by way of determining a bunch of landscape options. These could go anywhere from mountains to depths of valleys to number of lakes, etc.
In another Ark: Survival Evolved news, players are complaining on Reddit about a duplication glitch that seems to haunt them. User miju-irl reveals the fact that players are massively exploiting it right now. This is where they're able to have pegomastix. It also allows a person to "whip and item" out his/her hand just as the transfer is made from one server to another.
