Thanksgiving is upon us and today, Patch 252 brings a feast of new content to ARK: Survival Evolved! New friends will be making an appearance as four new creatures will become available to discover and tame, including the slimy Achatina, nocturnal hunter Megalosaurus, harvesting-specialist Moschops and the pheromone-spewing Pachyrhinosaurus!
Patch 252 also introduces a vast redesign of the original caves on The Island. Bringing them up to par visually, as well as introducing more gameplay elements to acquiring those artefacts, seasoned explorers will want to give these a whirl as it is an entirely new experience with much to be unravelled!
Along with the launch of patch 252 comes even more content goodness:
ARK: Turkey Trial 2! New challenge and cosmetics! Earnable Emote! (this system also enables Mods to add more Emotes to the game!)
New Mechanic: Breeding Phase 3 with Random Mutations and Family Trees.
VFX Indicators for Whistle Commands: Move To, Attack, and Group-Selected Units.
Explorer Notes: Two new mythos Explorer Notes for each character
A huge increase in server performance
Whistle Ordering Groups! Create groups by class, or specific-dino!
New Whistle Type: “Move To”, Attack, and Group-Selected Units.
Extra Option to “stream” in “Far” map sublevels, for large memory and performance gains (but reduced visual quality & draw distance).
