ARK: Survival Evolved PS4 update launches, 1.11 includes new dinosaurs

ARK: Survival Evolved PS4 update 1.11 was released today bringing with it a host of fixes and a third-person mode.

Update 1.11 (version 504) brings the console version up to par with all changes made on the PC game, up to version 254.93.

Patch notes confirm:

  • New Mechanic: Hairstyles & Facial Hair (with real-time growing), Hair Dye-ing, & Haircutting + Scissors
  • Tek Tier Phase 1: Tek Engram system, Element Resource system, Tek Replicator, Tek Rifle, Tek Helmet, Tek Visor, Tek Jetpack, Tek Boots, Tek Gloves, Tek Rex Saddle, Tek Transmitter, and more
  • New Dino: Ovis Aries
  • New Dino: Thylacoleo
  • New Dino: Basilosaurus
  • New Dino: Baryonyx
  • New Dino: Purlovia
  • New Dino: Microraptor
  • New Dino: Ammonite
  • New Item: Lance (for jousting of course!), and you can now also use a Shield when Weapon-Riding (provided you are using an appropriate Weapon).

There’s also a third person mode which can be activated via the map, as well as memory improvements, new single-player settings and a primitive and mega update.

Studio Wildcard’s dinosaur survival game didn’t impress us much at launch, but plenty of gamers think otherwise, and with plenty of updates planned its potential is huge.
