The developer behind Ark: Survival Evolved has confirmed that it will be releasing a free content update for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners.

Ark: Survival Evolved PS4 update v255 delivers a heap of additional features, including new creatures and customisation options. See below for full details on the update, and be sure to fire up your PS4 and get downloading---the update’s out now. 

New Creatures

Electrophorus Beluadomito - A species of Knifefish, Electrophorus uses an electrical charge to zap its prey, bringing down smaller fish and eels. Tribes have been known to capture and tame schools of Electrophorus in order to use them for taking down larger aquatic animals.

Microraptor Gnarilongus - Resembling a bird with a reptilian face, Microraptor is a vicious predator that is instantly aggressive to anything its size or smaller (including humans). Able to jump, run and do short glides, Microraptor is incredibly dangerous alone or in packs, and when trained, they can even take riders right out of their saddles during combat.

Ammonitina Multiamicus - One of the more unique creatures of the sea, the Ammonite resembles a nautilus, but much bigger. For unknown reasons, an attack on an Ammonite brings forth the wrath of all neighboring sea creatures, who will fervently defend it. This makes it a challenge to kill one, though the rewards are often worth it - the shell itself is valuable (as it is rare) and the bile can be used to concoct a unique new pheromone dart.

Thylacoleo Furtimorsus - Also known as the "marsupial lion", Thylacoleo is a powerful predator native to the island's redwood forests. A strong bite - the strongest of any land mammal - and bolt cutter-like teeth, make this creature a formidable ambush predator, leaping from above to crush the necks of its prey.

Additional v255 Content:

  • 30+ new Explorer Notes
  • Improved Server performance
  • Added option for per-Tribe Dino Tame limit, enabling on Official PvE servers with a max of 500 Dinos Per Tribe (with on-screen indicator of Tribe Dino count)
