ARK Survival Evolved UPDATE: Xbox One patch notes revealed, PS4 news

Studio Wildcard has released a new ARK Survival Evolved update today on Xbox One, with the same content changes being worked on for the PS4 platform. The good news is that the new ARK Survival patch is available to download on Xbox consoles tonight, and it brings a lot of changes to the game. Full patch notes have been shared and confirm plenty of bugfixes that have already gone live on PC and Steam.

Studio Wildcard has confirmed that today’s ARK update includes fixes in both the base game and the newly released Genesis expansion.

No release date has been shared for when the same ARK patch will be going live on PS4 but it appears it won’t be on March 20, 2020.

A member of the ARK Survival Evolved support team confirmed that the same patch is being worked on for PlayStation fans, revealing: “It appears the “big patch” for XBOX is going live. Patch notes have been updated. PS4, you are up early next week.”

From the sounds of it, we could see the new ARK update going live by Tuesday, March 24, 2020, although there is still plenty of time for things to change.

Studio Wildcard has also confirmed the return of Conquest servers, telling fans this week: “Classic PvP was a Snail Games initiative to shake up the current PvP meta. Conquest servers offer a similar player experience which focuses on large-scale PvP that may be appealing for those looking for an alternative to the popular mega-tribe meta.

“Conquest servers are being re-introduced by Snail Games and to kick-start this initiative, our existing Classic PvP servers will be wiped and re-purposed for isolated Classic PvP clusters on Thursday 3/19 at 1PM EST.

“Conquest servers will launch with transfers enabled but Extinction transfers will be disabled for 30 days following the launch (items & dinos).

“As we reintroduce Conquest servers, we’ll be looking for your valuable input throughout the duration. As these servers exist to shake up the PvP playstyle, it’s possible that they may undergo change and seasonal wipes as the mode matures.”
