Note: Due to some changes that were made to how data is saved on PS4, it appears that the previously existing data may be inhibiting the ability to join official/unofficial servers and singleplayer. Deleting this data will RESET the data, including: explorer notes, the mini-map, and achievements (will have to get them again to get the reward skins). You will have to get/unlock these again once the data is deleted. Deleting this data will not affect your characters or singleplayer saves. Navigate to: PS4 Settings > Storage > System Storage > Saved Data > ARK > Delete Local Profile. After the file is deleted, you should be able to join your server again.

When unchecked, it will switch between inventories when pressed (this is how it functioned before, so uncheck it to make it how it used to be).
- In building placement mode, Reload Key (Square) is switched to Accept Placement of a structure, (X) to jump while placing structure, (R1) to cycle snap points, (will indicate in Options menu in future version).
