Ark Survival Evolved , the survival game by Studio Wildcard, received yet another update and is now live on Xbox and PlayStation. The recent patch is not to be confused with the one released for PC a couple of days ago. Update 2.63 brought the end of the Summer Bash event and fixed several bugs and made some minor tweaks to the game.

The bug that caused visual artifacts in water has been fixed and several server stalls are addressed as well. From now on, the movement SFX will be affected by the HLNA opacity setting.

You can read about the rest of the changes below:

  • Fixed some cases where certain Explorer Notes would not play when accessed via the Explorer Note UI
  • Fixed a bug where HLNA crafting Explorer Notes would not unlock when using different characters on the same account
  • Fixed a bug where you couldn't craft TEK Replicator on Genesis Part 1
  • Fixed a bug where some items with overlays would cause serious visual issues in split screen
  • Fixed some level design related bugs such as holes, floating foliage, incorrect volumes, incorrect damage multipliers.
  • Fixed and protected against multiple exploits
  • Fixed and protected against multiple server and client crashes
  • 6x Structure Damage has been removed from vents on Genesis Part 2
  • Extinction Explorer Note #21 has been moved so it is no longer in the mesh
  • Prevented being able to build through Mission Dispatchers on Genesis Part 2
  • Significantly reduced the delay when transferring items between inventories or dropping items on the ground (a side effect of a crash and stall related fix from the previous patch)
  • Made some tweaks to the Starwing Strike race so it can no longer be completed without moving the Astrodelphis

The complete patch notes are available on the official site.

Ark Survival Evolved is currently available on PC, Xbox One, PS4, Switch, Android, and iOS. You can play the game on new consoles via backward compatibility.
