Full Ark: Survival Evolved Patch Notes

  • Cryopods are now able to be crafted at obelisk.
  • Added HLN-A Explorer Notes 1-5 for Genesis Chronicles.
  • Added Corrupted Avatar Armor helmet for Genesis Chronicles.

Developer Studio Wildcard has not specified when, or if, this new update will land on Nintendo Switch.

Ark has received several DLC updates since launch. The Ark: Extinction expansion pack, which includes raid boss-like Titans and more, launched alongside the Switch port in November 2018. The game's latest DLC, Genesis Chronicles, features the HLN-A cosmetic pet, "two new huge expansion packs," and more.

Studio Wildcard's next project, Atlas, released on PC in December 2018. The developer says it supports 40,000 concurrent players and is 1,200 times the size of an Ark server. The game will arrive on console through the Xbox One Game Preview program, but no widespread console release has been confirmed as of yet.
