Doesn’t this just look lovely.

Finally getting some more of the TEK stuff

Studio Wildcard today unleashed a new update on Steam for its epic dino-survival adventure ARK: Survival Evolved. This massive patch (v256) 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.

Here is what we are getting this update with more to follow

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.
Well this is going to be a thing in game for awhile I see.

The TEK Tier content is a wave of sci-fi-themed, end-game features that reward hard-working Survivors with awesomely futuristic gear and guns. Any players wanting TEK Tier loot will need to gather the newly introduced Element resource. Element is granted after successfully completing Boss Arenas. Each Boss now has three difficulty levels (easy, medium, hard) and after defeating the respective Boss are awarded with unique TEK Knowledge engrams, element and other general Boss Rewards. Collect the Element, then use the TEK Replicator to craft all TEK items.

Looks like an awesome update.

So can only a virgin catch these things or what?

This update finally adds in some awesome stuff. New dinos are always a plus making the Island more alive with more creatures. Though on the downside it may reduce the number of each creature spawning. But players looking to up their game, or just up the craziness of PVP, Will lover this update. SO get out to the island defeat the bosses and prepare for a new age of warfare on the Island.
