Ark: Survival Evolved Gets Huge Steam Update

If you are playing Ark: Survival Evolved on Steam, you might want to know that there is a pretty big update hitting the game. The new update comes under the name Patch 256, and with this update there is quite a bit of new content coming to the ARK world. In terms of new content, this Steam update brings aquatic breeding of the creatures, and vacuum-sealed underwater bases. Beyond that, there are now four new creatures, TEK teleporting pads, and even new wireless generators.

The new game content is not all that the Ark: Survival Evolved Steam update brings either, as we also see a better user-interface system as it just got a major upgrade as well. You will find that if you are trying to get into your inventory or delete inventory, it is much easier to get into now. The game menu navigation has also improved dramatically in this new update. When it comes to the creatures that you will find new in the game, they are pretty cool additions to the game.

The first creature that has been added to Ark: Survival Evolved is a new herbivorous dinosaur. There is also a new big fish wish has a ton of meat on it. You will also find a seagull creature that you can train to bring you fish in the game. As far as the new Boss is concerned, each of the new bosses will now come in three different levels of difficulty, including hard, easy, and medium. You will get a cool TEK Knowledge Engram when you beat the boss. You will also get an element and other rewards that you normally collect when you beat a boss.

You will be able to use the new item, the TEK Replicator, in order to craft any and all items in Ark: Survival Evolved that are TEK. There is new TEK Tier content in the game too, which will reward you in the game if you are hard-working, and the content is very science-fiction. The TEK Mosa Saddle is also new, and this allows your creatures to have the laser beam equipped on them.

How You Can Play Ark: Survival Evolved

Right now, Ark: Survival Evolved is on a few different systems, including Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam Early Access. You can play Ark: Survival Evolved right now on Steam and you will notice integration with a lot of the community features on Steam.
