A new ARK: Survival Evolved PC patch has been unleashed. Update 273 tweaks sleeping, handcuffs and more. Be sure to read up on the patch notes below, so you don’t get caught off guard when hitting the hay, or when you’re captured!
See below for the full list of patch notes:
- Added the capability to “Lay On” Simple Bed and Modern Bed (2 people on Modern Bed). If you log out while laying on a bed, you’ll remain in sleeping pose on the bed even when you log-out, and will stay on the bed even while it moves on a dynamic platform. (You can still be damaged and killed when on the bed).
- ARK update 273 has added the capability for another player to “Lock” handcuffed players to Seating Structures (including Chairs, Benches, Beds, etc). When locked to a structure, the handcuffed player will appear to have a cable connecting them to the structure and be forced to sit on the structure. This state persists across logging out as well. Another player can also “Unlock” you from the Structure, or remove the handcuffs. Chairs within Cages are thus very useful for transportation of prisoners.
- When handcuffed, Poop now is forced directly into Slot 1. Prisoners can consume it rapidly as it builds up to attempt suicide.
Fixed saving/loading of Lamp Post Light intensity value.
Now go get to playing Ark and rapidly consuming that poop!
In other Ark news, the PS4 update included big memory improvements and cutter optimizations, and the game runs surprisingly well on Xbox One X hardware.
