ARK Digest: Special Edition

Hey Survivors!

Welcome to the first Special Edition of the ARK Digest! We’ve got TONS of content released this week and the team is very hard at work to get that out to you! Due to the sheer amount of what needs to come out, we’re going to be releasing it in batches. We’ve mentioned some of what you can expect to see in various places across the board, but we’ve decided to give you a little bit of a teaser so you can know more of what to expect ;)! We’ll also be delaying this week’s regular Digest as the team will be working through to get the content out, but don’t worry - we’ll make sure we hit you guys with a double-header for the next - however you can still send in your questions here!

ARK Patch Notes!

Monday the 21st of September - Patch 214!

The first of several Major Updates to come out this week will be version 214! This will include a ton of new content, bug fixes, technical fixes and more! Some of the cool things you can look forward to playing around with are;

New Structures: Powered Elevator Structures

New Structure: Controllable Primitive Harpoon Ballista

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=522639632

We have an important (Good!) announcement for the mod community coming tomorrow, so stay tuned for it!

Wednesday the 23rd of September!

The second core-patch will include the introduction of a new friend on the ARK, a cool special ability added to one of our current friends and much more!

New Creature: Paraceratherium & accompanying Platform Saddle!

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=522639245

New Special Ability: Carryable and Hawk-style Throwable Dimorphodon

Thursday the 24th of September!

This one is going to be fun! ;)

Survival of the Fittest: The Last Stand!

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=522639070

Yup, that’s right! Another major tournament and awesome new changes to the game mode including some new friends, new extinction events and game balance! More details to come later this week ;)

Friday the 25th of September

..Now this one is a big one, hold onto your butts everyone!

Swamp and Snow Biomes

The above map represents where the new biomes will exist on this ARK. If there are any structures which have been created in a way that they do not conform to the terrain, the game will automatically demolish them on Friday, so you guys will have a week to move bases. We’re still trying to avoid any wipes as much as possible and will continue to do so up until release. Sorry about any inconvenience guys, this is all part of the early access program and as the game continues in it’s development cycle and the ARK continues to… evolve... things like this are always a possibility.

This was a further along concept from the one we showcased earlier, it’s had some changes for when we finalized it!

And there’s even more misc bits of content including new Structures, new items, and lots more bug fixes and usability improvements on the way! So get ready for a ton of new additions to your game, everyone, over this busy week!

That’s it for the Special Edition of the ARK Digest! Thanks for tuning in and for your continued support everyone! Hope you’re just as excited as we are for the new content :D!

can you define what you mean by "conform to the terrain"..? is the terrain going to change all that much? i have a mining base up near the obelisk, its up on pillars, and of course the pillars slightly clip into the ground.

does this mean any foundations basically?

Sounds awesome, really looking forward to it! :D
It figures though that it's this week my laptop decides to breakdown. -_-
