Ark: Survival Evolved developer Studio Wildcard has brought a couple of interesting additions to the game. This was made possible via a new update meant for Steam. Not only does it arrive with a new content, a pack of new structures and dinos are also on the list. Here's why v256 is just simply a beauty worth mentioning.
According to Gamasutra, the studio released the aforementioned Ark: Survival Evolved patch v256 in hopes to keep the game's momentum afloat. The game received new TEK structures such as the underwater bases that are all vacuum-sealed. There is even a new breeding mechanic called Aquatic Creature Breeding. Players are also treated to a total of four powerful creatures.
The said patch was meant to bring the PC version of Ark: Survival Evolved to its latest (in accordance to the one introduced to the console versions). Among the interesting things the update brought is a redesign to the game's Inventory Menu. It now has a more stunning and visual aesthetic, giving it a more streamlined look.
The four new creatures in Ark: Survival Evolved are named Equus Magnus, Leedsicthys Conviviumbrosia, Ichthyornis Piscoquus and Iguanodon Vicissitudinis. The new structures include the likes of a TEK Power Generator and TEK Teleporter. A new item in the form of TEK Mosa Saddle has also arrived and is meant to equip the best with lasers and the likes.
As of this writing, Ark: Survival Evolved is currently on sale on Steam for only $29.99 (67-percent off). Its first expansion, which is called Ark: Scorched Earth, is also on sale for only $19.99 (51-percent off). This started last March 31, so it might be a good idea for interested plays to give this dinosaur-survival game a try.
In related Ark: Survival Evolved news, VG247 reports that the latest update also enables players to craft the new Lasso item. This one here is a very interesting addition, as it lets players wrangle beasts while riding. It works like something similar to a Cowboy's Yee-haw.
