ARK: Survival Evolved, a game that pits you in a world of dinosaurs and other giant creatures to survive the elements, has received its first big update for the Xbox One, and it's a doozy. Alongside a slew of fixes and balance changes, the update brings the ability for players to ride a Procoptodon — essentially a giant prehistoric kangaroo.
The Procoptodon can support two players, allowing one to control the movement while the other sits in the pouch and fires away with weapons. You can check out the Procoptodon jumping over walls and just generally being awesome in the video above. Of course, there's a bit more in the update as well; here's a breakdown:
- Dino rebalancing
- The addition of a primitive cage and stone fireplace items
- Fixed Cave Loading crash/fall-thru
- Improved performance: better framerate, less stalls
- Fixed crosshair not appearing
- Fixed potential loss of character save data in local mode
- Fixed fur armor colorization
- Improved speed of server listing
- Fixed Taming Dinos losing Inventories/messed-up-Inventories upon reloading single player save game
- Fixed a memory leak that was typically causing crashes around the Volcano area
While ARK isn't due for a full, official launch until on Xbox One until sometime this summer, it was released in mid-December as part of the Xbox One Preview program, allowing you to test the game out as it develops. If your interest is piqued and you're okay with dealing with some inevitable bugs as development goes on, you can pick up ARK now on the Xbox Store for $34.99.
