A couple of days ago, developer Studio Wildcard announced that a new Ark: Survival Evolved update is coming to the game's console version. However, it wasn't immediately released, as it needs to undergo a detailed certification process. Fortunately, this has been completed, and the studio's set to unleash the patch.
According to PlayStationLifeStyle, the very own community manager of Ark: Survival Evolved Jat has announced the completion of the update's certification process. Hence, it's set to invade the game today. The update is meant to arrive on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, though it first arrived on the PC platform.
The aforementioned Ark: Survival Evolved update weighs around 3.45 GB, with some interesting stuff expected to be introduced. It's basically developed to bring an added content along with a re-designed inventory menu. It's also believed to bring a couple of fixes, most of which are unique to the game's console version.
Ark: Survival Evolved on PlayStation 4, in particular, will now be on version 506.1. Most of the significant changes fall on the game's user interface. For instance, the chat box offset is now steadily fixed especially when the UI is scaled. The Chat Box will also not cover the hotbar whenever the game's inventory is enabled or opened.
As for the game input changes, the touchpad can now be used to navigate the inventory HUB to the left. This includes the tribe manager, the engrams, and the inventory, among others. R1, on the other hand, can be utilized to cycle the inventory tab, which is used to switch between crafting and inventory. These are just a few of the many changes Studio Wildcard brought via the console update.
On the server side of things in Ark: Survival Evolved, TrueAchievements reports that Wild dinos will no longer tick twice. Add to this the timeout and/or disconnection from player log-off being a non-issue. Why? That's because it's been greatly reduced.
