Patch 247: Archaeopteryx, Tapejara, Night Vision Goggles and more!
Patch 247 brought cuteness and beauty today to ARK: Survival Evolved with the addition of two new dinos, Tapejara and Archaeopteryx. Both are small, beautiful flying creatures, the latter resembling the modern bird more than any other dinosaur on the ARK.
The Archaeopteryx is a small bird-like forest-dweller that glides between trees, harvesting their sap as well as consuming small insects.
The Archaeopteryx is a small bird-like forest-dweller that glides between trees, harvesting their sap as well as consuming small insects. When Tamed, it can be used to collect sap, or held overhead for players to “glide” over long distances!
The Tapejara is a mid-size pterosaur whose large head-fin gives it superior maneuverability.
Not only can it ‘strafe’ while in the air, it can only cling onto walls, allowing its rider and up to two additional seated passengers to shoot their weapons!
Update v247 also includes Night Vision Goggles for stealthy raids, and a bevy of performance optimizations and gameplay fixes. As well as major updates to The Center Map!
The Center fantasy map expanded today to now include 13 new mini caves, new explorable area near the “Edge of the World,” more spawns, loads of fixes, re-work of the weather system, and more!
