So now every Xbox One – Player can join the ARK – Experience thanks to the XBox Preview Program! The PS4-Version will be released in the Final-Version, Sony doesn´t have an Early Access Program.
Tame, hunt and just have a fun with lots of Dinos and other creatures – Don´t get eaten 😉
We already mentioned some features in our first article about the Xbox One – Version – now we can go into detail 🙂
If some important informations are missing please write them in the comments and we´ll add it as soon as possible.
The Xbox One Version is very similar to the PC-Version – Studio Wildcard did a great job adapting it to the Xbox One.
Two major changes are:
- a different start menu
- you access the tribe menu from your inventory
There are a lot of Official Server out there.
If you want to play with your friends, it is possible to host a 4-Player Server (this is NOT a dedicated server setup).
If you want to think larger than there is an option to host a Server for up to 70 players, but for this you have to turn a Xbox One into a dedicated Server. This Server has to stay online 24/7 to remain the map accessible to all the players – (I don´t think it would be a wise idea to play on the same Xbox on which this server is hosted – it will need all the power for the hosting (so you´ll need a second Xbox One))
Whenever you die you have two options – respawn or create new survivor – be careful not to delete your character!
We wish you a lot of fun in ARK!
Finally a new Patchnote – Patchnotes 227 will follow today
- Fixed issue where ‘activated’ Structure state (campfires etc) could become desync’ed on Clients.
- Also heavily optimized how Remote Procedure Calls are networked to increase server performance.
- v226.5 fixed issue where Structure spawn VFX weren’t playing, requires server update
Ark Survival Evolved offers an incredible amount of cheats, which are well documented on many websites (like this) and can be easily used to manipulate the game. But many people don’t have a computer capable of surfing and playing at the same time. That’s why we’ve created a handy cheat sheet, which can be printed on 8 pages. It still has enough free space to add informations or take notes by yourself.
Good News for all the console lovers out there –
ARK: Survival Evolved will open its gates to the XBox One on the date 16/12/15!
The Price will be 34.99$ (The purchase will grant also access to the final version in summer 2016!). The PS4-Version is still in development.
The Xbox One Version will include exclusive:
- A special Skin for T-Rex – Bionik Tek Rex! (You can see it in the trailer at 0:50!)
- Free Access to Xbox-specific official Servers
- Tailor made for Xbox One gamepad controls!
Take a look at this teasing Trailer!
There won´t be as many updates as in the PC Version but they plan to keep the content on the same level (so you can expect one Update in 2 Weeks).It´s still unknown if there will be an option to play on private servers – we´ll keep you updatet 🙂
