    Hey Survivors!

    We’re very excited to announce that the patch is now live! This will bring a heavy update to the Xbox One, including a plethora of content and mega optimization! The ARK will be joined by 3 new friends, many new items and of course the exciting multiplayer functionality, split-screen! We know this has been a highly requested feature from players and we're stoked to allow you guys to unravel the mysteries of the ARK side by side with your friends and families!

    Say hello to the adaptable carnivore! The Dimetrodon offers players shade during excessive heat and shelter from extreme cold by way of the massive insulating sail running down its back. It’s regarded as one of the friendly creatures to survivors and can be found roaming the swamplands that are plentiful with small prey.

    The Dung Beetle is a wondrous organic biofactory that eats excrement and other useless waste to then metabolize and produce burnable oil that can power generators and fertilize crops! Regarded as the perfect tame for cleaning up around the tribe’s dino-pen.

    It’ll come as no surprise to survivors that the Gallimimus has been often been described as being chicken-like, with it’s extremely skittish behaviour, looking nervous even when eating! The speedy herbivore makes its way onto the ARK with no natural way to defend itself except for running away. Thankfully the Gallimimus may very well be the fastest dinosaur on the ARK, it's strength, endurance, and speed of its legs allow it to ferry up to 3 Survivors in a specially-designed Saddle!

    Today’s update adds an enormous amount of content and optimization, including:

    • SWAT-style Assault Armor for all your raiding needs!
    • Greenhouse structure pieces to aid survivors in growing crops
    • The shockingly powerful Electric Prod easily capable of knocking you out.
    • Deep-Sea Loot Crates: swim into the deep and discover the highly valuable loot that exists below
    • Craftable Beer Kegs for making tasty brews, with various status enhancing effects, however the subsequent ‘hangover’ effects are not so pleasant!
    • Loads of bug fixes, serious performance update (~15%), fixed memory leak
    • Non-dedicated servers now support up to Eight survivors and 33% larger tether distance

    What will happen to any babies you were raising after the servers are updated? Our tribe was raising two baby giganotos when the servers started updating and we're afraid for what will happen to them

    you can't use early access as an excuse to not add features you've stated that would be added on multiple occasions.

    I don't know if you understand me, There is a clear cut difference between bugs, and laziness bugs are gui errors, laziness is when they leave out features the promised would come.

    So I come back online to find out. One my baby giga is gone. So I'm annoyed already I put alot of work getting the parents let alone breeding it and it was lvl 114 higher then both parents and that's never happened to me before  now that's not all. Another thing missing is a full grown giga. My Mr sugarbottoms is now gone and that pisses me off. There is no way it could leave it's everything is disabled and he's passive not to mention my dino resistance is zero. Now we were also told we were getting the server options that computer has up to a certain patch. Now it's not only not there but not listed anymore either. I put work taming and breeding to have them both gone and I'm hoping this gets fixed.

    I think I would rather want my UI like health and what not instead of split screen, sorry. Like the update though it is going to be a pain to find them on Xbox. Also why is there a large shadow around my character when I am swimming? The ocean is clear but a shadow over me. So strange.

    Like many others, the UI is now broken. Can't see the usual survival icons on right side of the screen. Tried to adjust with UI scale, doesn't work. PLEASE FIX.
