As of this publication there appears to be no platform-specific patch notes for consoles like PS4 and Xbox One, which likely means any changes exclusive to consoles are negligible. In short, today's update primarily focuses on adding new content for players to explore ahead of Extinction's full release in November.

ARK 's Extinction Chronicles promotion has been ongoing since June, as players prepare for the game's final Season Pass expansion. By collecting a series of new Explorer Notes scattered across the map, players can obtain exclusive gear related to the DLC. With this fourth installment in the series, it's possible to earn the Corrupted Helmet, Corrupted Boots, Corrupted Pants and Corrupted Shirt. You can see what the shirt looks like in the screenshot below.

More so than ever, Extinction seeks to blend the series' futuristic and prehistoric elements in ways that satisfy all members of the community.
