ARK: Survival Evolved Steam Major Update
Studio Wildcard has just unleashed a new update on Steam for its epic dino-survival adventure ARK: Survival Evolved. This massive patch comes crammed with new content, including vacuum-sealed underwater bases and aquatic creature breeding, TEK teleporter pads and wireless generators, and four powerful creatures. Survivors take note.
Today also brings the first major menu redesign of ARK, as the Inventory UI receives a complete visual and functional overhaul for a streamlined new look. This is a huge upgrade that means easier access to everything in the player’s inventory.
“The new ARK Inventory UI is a total redesign of the game’s former clunky interface! This visual and functional overhaul brings right-click context menus and better organization for remote inventories,” said Jeremy Stieglitz, Lead Designer, Lead Programmer, and Co-Founder of Studio Wildcard. “It’s a significant step on the road of preparing ARK for its home stretch of Early Access.”

“The TEK Tier for ARK is being implemented in multiple phases, with today’s update including awesome new element powered gear like:
New Structure: TEK Power Generator. The wireless generators power TEK structures and any Tribe electrical structures in adjustable range.
New Structures & Mechanic: TEK Underwater Bases. Allows fully-enclosed structures to be created underwater, with ventilators to allow oxygen filled room. Air-locks and moonpools allow players to enter and exit without flooding their base.
New Structure: TEK Teleporter. Helps players move around the expansive open-world island. But very expensive to obtain!
New Item: TEK Mosa Saddle. Once properly placed on the Mosasaur it equips the beast with lasers and more.
