Ark Monolithic update and Game Will Not start in Bug Reports & Support Posted April 23 After more than 9 hr of installation and a 76 gig download I finally got the base game to run and I could connect to an island server. a total of 91 gigs for a base game on a console is insane. A 76 gig download for a update is also insane. This would have killed my internet usage if a temporary lift and data caps was not in effect. I think this is the definition of bloat ware. i still have to try to install the original dlc and see what happens.
