ARK Survival Evolved PS4 and Xbox One update today BIGGEST in scope ever

THE NEW ARK Survival Evolved PS4 and Xbox One update coming today is one of the biggest launched by Studio Wildcard on consoles.

The new ARK Survival Evolved PS4 and Xbox One update arrives today

The latest ARK Survival Evolved PS4 and Xbox One update is set to add new dinos to the game, as well as additional TEK gear and other rebalancing changes to tames.

Flyers are getting nerfed and provided states that a more in line with how Studio Wildcard have envisioned their use for.

The new ARK update was meant to launch earlier this week but was delayed due to the certification process put in place to protect the PS4 and Xbox One networks.

There is no current release times to report, only that it will likely arrive after 6pm BST based on prior patches.

Commenting on the process of launching ARK Survival Evolved update, a further explanation reads: "We send our patches through to cert as soon as they're ready to be certified, we don't hold them back.

"The alternative would be holding back announcing a time until it's passed.

"Though we're still going to run into console players wondering when the update is going to be, as PC players would have it then we have to consider, do we provide an ETA for the cert to be complete -- and that leads us to where we are now.

"I guess here are the things we have to consider, would you guys rather wait longer for content than you do already?

"And is delaying content beneficial to our development purposes?"

Studio Wildcard have also confirmed that this latest update will be one of the biggest ever launched for consoles, a sure sign that the development team are working toward the final build.

“It didn't take almost a month cause we were slow, but because it's probably one of the largest updates (in scope) ever,” a community manager commented.

There has been no further comments regarding delays, meaning that today should see the launch of the new ARK update, which could weigh in at around 5GBs.


  • Structure: TEK Power Generator. The wireless generators power TEK structures and any Tribe electrical structures in adjustable range.
