    Primitive+, The Center, Allosaurus, Pelagornis, and the Fishing Frenzy Free Weekend!

    large.579a424c2df6d_TheCenterv2TopoftheW

    Now available as a free DLC in the ‘ARK Official Mods Program’, Primitive+, created by Cedric Burkes, is playable as a functionality mod on all Official ARK Maps and challenges players by altering the available tools, weapons and structures in the game to reflect what humans could realistically create using primitive technology and resources. This does not simply remove advanced technology from ARK, but instead replaces it with a multitude of new resources, engrams and systems.

    Players will need to specialize in specific roles and work together to complete their goals. Hunters, farmers, cooks and builders can band together to create a new, functioning society where diplomacy and even economics can matter. In Primitive Plus, you will not only cope with human society’s limitations, but unlock its potential.

    As well as the release of Primitive+, this huge patch also covers a large expansion to The Center! The Center,  has now been expanded to include new biomes, islands, caves, and a completely new boss arena for survivors to explore, as well as the addition of a wide variety creatures to tame and be hunted.

    ARK Patch v245

    large.Dossier_Pelagornis.jpg.3cd275ed8e1

    Pelagornis is one of the island's most versatile mounts because of its ability to fly, walk, and surface-swim. It has a wingspan rivaling Argentavis, and possesses a beak filled with tooth-like projections for snagging fish and webbed feet for paddling upon the ocean surface. Though it’s versatility comes at a cost, the same webbed feet that allow Pelagornis to serenely maneuver along the ocean's surface prevent it from snatching prey from the ground, which may limit its appeal to some survivors.

    large.Allosaurus.jpg.c5a120e333f13567652

    Allosaurus, smaller but faster than Tyrannosaurus, larger but slower than Carnotaurus, Allosaurus is the island's resident pack-hunting theropod. While most aggressive theropods are relatively solitary creatures, Allosaurus lives in groups of three. One Allosaurus is the Pack Leader, while the others are its mates or a beta male. The Allosaurus has evolved to hunt in packs. Its saw-shaped teeth leave its prey bleeding and maimed, making escape difficult. Once an Allosaurus slows a creature with its cutting bite, the rest of its pack quickly close in for the kill…

    Additional Update v245 Content Includes

    • New Item: Fishing Rod + Fishing Mechanic! Be a pro fisherman as you apply varied bait, cast the line, wait for a fish to become ensnared, and then succeed at a mini-game to reel the fish and claim copious rewards!
    • New Structure: Industrial Grinder that grinds items into a portion of their crafting resources, then converts resources into simpler resources
    • New Structure: Spiral Staircase (Stone/Wood/Metal)
    • New Mechanic: Optional Hitmarkers for ranged attacks (server can toggle them, as well as client if the server allows it)
    • Building Attack/Destruction Tribe Logs
    • UI Option to colorize item name texts based on quality level.
    • Offline Raid Protection mode now disables PIN Locking, and Structures in Caves no longer get ORP.

    Primitive+ release on Xbox One

    Don’t worry! Primitive+ will still be releasing on Xbox One - it has not been cancelled, let’s dispel those rumours right now. It is fact coming fairly soon! Though, it is still a couple weeks away. The reason for the delay, outside of regular procedure matters (certification etc), is that we wanted to take a more careful approach with releasing this DLC due to the some of the bumps that we had run into when we initially released our first DLC, The Center onto the Xbox platform. A few of our recent patches have had significant changes which have led to some painful situations which we’re still recovering from in terms of issues that crop up post release. I know it sucks as you guys have been very passionate about playing Primitive+, we’ve seen the support all over social media and we’re truly grateful for it, which is even more reason why we want to do our best to ensure that when the DLC is made available, it does not suffer from those same bumps. We’re going to ensure this by putting it through it’s paces with more vigorous QA, and monitoring the official release on PC for any undetected issues, as well as conduct extra iteration when necessary. We are sorry about the delay, and it won’t be too long, and when it does become available, you’ll be glad we avoided the risk and hopefully we’ll have a smooth, bump, and bruise-free release!

    This is so awesome! The grinder will be very useful since I have lots of guns I found in beacons, but never use. Free metal!

    I was REALLY hoping we could get primitive plus...ive been waiting for a server that was supposed to open 2day with it... hopefully it comes really soon...I really don't feel like waiting another few weeks like we usually do...completely ruins the "freshness" of it, since pc users will get it, and now like 90% of the people who play on console will go watch that content and ruin it for others who may want to just explore the new feature...

    Curious, if this is such a big concern why not get it for PC? I highly recommend it on the PC platform

    only reason I don't have PC is I cant afford it. its not cheap, I refuse to get a pc that is cheap enough I can afford yet cant handle half the stuff my console can, if I'm getting a PC I'm doing it right and getting a good one that actually gives me my moneys worth

    What does this mean for Xbox primitive servers that already exist?    Will they get the primitive plus update to existing servers in a couple weeks, or will all new primitive plus servers be released.     If current primitive servers aren't just updated with prim plus, then the current primitive servers will all be abandoned...

    Isnt that the same as above? There it doesn't say anything about the update for the the center map, like the new islands, biomes and the new dinos, only primitive+. But I guess its the same update, I just wanted it confirmed

    how do you get primitive+ on xbox

    It's not released yet.  It states that it'll probably be a couple weeks out to make sure there aren't hiccups like there were with The Center map on XB1.
