Ark Survival Evolved Update: New Flyer Patch Live On PC; Xbox One and PS4 Reveal Set For Later

A new Ark Survival Evolved Update has just been launched on PC today, while PS4 and Xbox One update is set for a later launch.

The new update brings improvements to the flying dinosaurs and nerfs their abilities to a good extent. However, this new update and all of its contents are available for PC only yet. It is expected that the changes that this new update brought, will be available on both PS4 and Xbox One after the launch on consoles.

Following are the patch notes for the new Ark Survival Evolved update.

Dino Related:

  • Ridable fliers (not the Moth) now have ground attacks.

  • Ankylo reduces weight of raw metal by 75%

According to the patch notes, the update has brought a lot of improvements to the game’s dinos, Ul, and other environmental elements. The update has also brought in a lot of new changes to the game as well. The most prominent changes include the rebalance of the flying dinosaurs.

Furthermore, both the PvP and PvE issues are also now resolved. There is also now 0.2s cooldown on meet consumption, oxygen swim speed multiplier is also added to the game. The game is now overall more stable and some visual glitches are also addressed in the new Ark Survival Evolved update.
