A new update that will introduce a new major feature will be rolled out on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version of “Ark: Survival Evolved” ahead of its official full release. The much-awaited release of the game will also bring the highly anticipated Ragnarok Mod.

Upcoming update

A new patch will be released to “Ark: Survival Evolved” in the middle part of August ahead of the game’s official release date. The patch will roll out on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It will include new dinosaurs and interesting features for consoles. This new feature will provide a free service to third-party hosts.

Also, it will remove the need for another console. This will further give the player the complete access to all of the game’s custom server configuration settings, allowing players to modify the rules of their custom ARKs. Aside from those, players with existing games can transfer over their Legacy save files with this new feature.

What’s coming?

This is the first time that Studio Wildcard has postponed the official release of the game. One of the major reasons for the delay is the developer’s desire to eliminate the worst exploits that were found in the game. According to the developer, the major version update that will be rolled out in the middle of August will substantially help with DDoS mitigation as well as address the issues that enabled players to dupe.

The update will also enable players to rent PC-dedicated Console Server.

The studio added that there would be an option to stop creatures from tailing the player. The game developer aims to implement this soon after the major version update has been released. Moreover, they are also resolving the server crash-exploits as and when they occur.

Studio Wildcard is also currently working on the performance of the server to provide a stable and smoother gaming experience to the players.

Patch notes

The game developer recently gave a sneak peek on some of the things that will be included in the upcoming update. Among these includes Boss Wars, new creatures, gears, weapons, and structures.

There are also several fixes that will significantly improve the game.

Ragnarok Mod

The release of the highly awaited mod has also been postponed along with the game’s official release date. According to Studio Wildcard, the additional period will give them more time to develop the map further. The game developer assures fans that on the mod’s release the overground of the world will have a substantial increase of approximately one-quarter almost as vast as the Thelsland DLC. Players can expect new biomes, an epic boss battle, and a surprise that the Ragnarok Team is preparing for players.

Release date

Ark: Survival Evolved” will be released on August 29 along with the PC update. The major Console Update is scheduled to release mid-month although no specific date was given yet.
