Ark: Survival Evolved Xbox One update brings the mighty Titanosaur with it

Xbox One players are getting the largest dino in the game.

Studio Wildcard are bringing the Titanosaur to Ark: Survival Evolved on Xbox One, along with the Redwood Forest Biome in a new update just in time for Xbox Ultimate Game Sale.

The Titanosaur is the largest creature on the island that is effectively a mobile fortress if you can tame it, smooshing everything in its path.

The Redwood Biome is filled with huge trees, as you’d expect, letting you build treetop villages decked out with wood and metal platforms, retractable ladders, and all sorts of other things your 12-year old self would have bludgeoned someone to death for to add to their treehouse.

Ark: Survival Evolved is currently on sale for 25% off the full price for Xbox One Gold Members, and 15% for Silver Members until Monday July 11. You can take a look at the new content below if you’re still deciding whether to pick it up.

New ARK Content Includes:

  • New Item: The Chain Bola ammo for ballista turret! Bring huge creatures to their knees, temporarily, by entangling them in these gigantic metal bolas
  • New Item: Gas Mask! Avoid diseases and poisonous gas with this protective breathing apparatus
  • New Item: Herbivore “TastyCakes”
  • New Structure: Retractable Rope Ladders! Extend or retract these flimsy ladders, good for letting allies onto your ramparts while keeping the enemy out
  • New Structure: Tree Sap Taps! Slowly extract valuable syrup from the great redwoods for use in a variety of new recipes
  • New Mechanic: Custom Tripwire Alarm Notifications via (E-mail and Forum). Optionally Tribes can post to arbitrary URL, if they have a custom system! Now if someone’s raiding your base, you can get on top of it!
  • GroundClutter effect extended 50% further and +20% more GPU efficiency
  • Balled Doed’s are no longer invincible to Tamed Dino melee attacks — now just very, very resistant to them
  • Magnifying Glass now displays creature Torpor stats (on Wild creatures too)
  • Tribe Alliances now disabled in Offline Raid mode (too complex to determine if anyone in an Alliance is around), C4/Traps can no longer be placed near Offline-Raid Protected Structures, and Offline-Raid mode now forces all Structures to be Lockable so that players can “Lock” Crop Plots to prevent their turrets from being disabled
  • New Server option to prevent tribe alliances
  • Engagement with Wild Naturally-Fleeing & Small creatures (tiny bugs etc) no longer trigger combat music
  • Tamed Dinos that are following a submerged allied Target will not attempt to float to the surface of the water, but rather will attempt to stay at the depth of their allied Target. (helpful when deliberately going deep-diving your tamed land Dinos). However, Dinos that are capable of suffocating will try to surface if they are out of Oxygen regardless!
  • Vaults can no longer be dropped onto saddle platforms
  • Transfer-All/Drop-All methods now only drop/transfer what is currently disabled in the inventory, respecting any filters/folders you may have active (so for example, if you’re within a folder, it will only transfer those items, or if you have a text filter active, etc)
  • Fixed an issue where pillars were not being calculated correctly as foundations when building pillars downwards
  • Dedicated Server Save-Backups
  • Memory saving & cpu performance increase approximately 5%
