ARK brings you Dodo tossing, ruins, and the new Center map

    
19

Who’s up for a round of Dodo tossing? ARK: Survival Evolved’s patches might not be coming at quite the same break-neck speed as before, but they still bring plenty of dinoriffic goodness. Today’s patch v241 opens the door to two brand-new sports: Dodo dunking and Beetle ball! Survivors will be able to pick up and toss both Dodos and Dung Beetles.

The new official mod map also releases today as a free DLC for players. Called The Center, this map offers a larger play area than the standard island map. New official The Center servers, which hold 100 survivors are opening up, and player hosts can switch to this map as well on their servers. To learn more, watch the official trailer below.

Although the big biome update isn’t expected until the 30th, survivors can look forward to more changes to the land than just an expanded snow zone and added redwoods; that update will introduce the historical ruins across the ARK.  Those who want to know the true nature of the island can seek them out and study the logs and notes found at these areas to learn the backstories of the survivors who have lived before and what exactly happened to them.

chriskovo  Typically, major optimization passes don’t occur in a game until its beta stage.  They’re still adding features to the game and mechanics so any major optimization passes would be extra work that will have to be done over and over again as new features and mechanics would be put in.  That’s a considerable waste of development resources and time.  This is why they do minor optimizations only while still in Alpha.

How about adding less crap and optimizing the game more. Last time I played it was a stutter fest and it definably not my machine.

DeadlyAccurate arktourosx More dinos and more stuff to craft. Some interesting dinos that increase breeding rate of other dinos, etc. Dino breeding is the main end game. More maps.

FunkyCold SC_Deadline wouldn’t say the replay is massive , you end up just doing the same stuff . feeding a dino berrys for hours.

DeadlyAccurate Like literally when you log in and play it gives a brief run down of what they added on the right…

Every time I turn around they’re adding in more stuff. I’m still living in a hut on the beach avoiding those damn ginormoboa things

SC_Deadline Don’t think this will work like in minecraft and you will have endless map maybe will be just a random island other than Theisland.
