Late last night a couple of interesting announcements came through the Twitter pipeline about ARK: Survival Evolved — namely, the ability to sleep on a bed upon logging or to handcuff someone else to it! No, really: With the release of version 273, players will be able to chain/handcuff other players to structures like a bed or chair. Those shackles will persist through logging out, so whoever is restrained will remain restrained. We’ll leave speculation about just how that feature is going to be used to your imagination. Players will also get to log out on a bed (although they could wake up shackled to it!).
This release, which also includes various fixes, additions, and optimizations, is slated to drop today. So, off to bed with you!
After your nap, you can catch up on more Aberration new later today in our The Survivalist column!
