RK: Survival Evolved has been updated across PS4 and PC in patch 1.43 and v269 on PC. Courtesy of Studio Wildcard, here’s a recap of the official patch notes.

PC Update v269

  • Major networking change to resolve client disconnections when structures are destroyed
  • Fixed an issue where explosives would have an impact on server performance
  • Fixed a bug with the Phoenix where you could set Dinos alight from a far distance
  • Fixed a bug with the Phoenix where it wouldn't do damage to wild targets in PVE
  • Fixed a bug where you could unlock super speed with the TEK Jet Pack
  • Fixed a bug where setting the server fps to 2.5 would launch you across the map
  • Fixed a bug preventing players riding a Therizino from getting shot when turrets were set to Player Only
  • Fixed an issue where you weren't able to name your character preset in character creation
  • Fixed an issue where Ankylosaurus would get stuck in the air
  • Fixed a bug where you could tame and damage Phoenix when not in Superheat



PS4 Update 1.43

  • Enabled building in orbit camera mode
  • Updated the Ice Wyvern Model
  • Updated Translations for Chinese languages.
  • Added option to cancel PGM Generation
  • Fixed various content issues with the Phoenix and Otter

While an update is currently in certification for Xbox One that brings an assortment of bug fixes alongside the Otter and Phoenix, deployment experienced significant delays from power issues caused by Hurricane Irma in Florida. We expect the final patch will be arriving soon, but Studio Wildcard community management staff has not provided an ETA at this time.

Despite the game’s rocky launch, we’re starting to see ARK’s update path slowly converge across its three main platforms. While the fixes between PC, Xbox One and PS4 still aren’t the exact same on each drop, at least dedicated patches per version are starting to release around the same time. As far as PS4 and PC are concerned today, however, the focus seems to be on patching significant issues that have emerged since launch. Server problems on PC have become especially troublesome in recent days.

ARK: Survival Evolved launched to a fairly mediocre critical reception on Aug. 29, but that hasn’t stopped the Studio Wildcard development team from expanding its ambitions and painting a vibrant future for the sandbox it’s created. Alongside the promise of new Dinos, next month’s Aberration expansion brings new story content and creatures to the game.

ARK: Survival Evolved is available now on PC, Xbox One, PS4, OS X and Linux.
