As far as these patch notes are concerned, there's not much here that changes the game for console players. If you've been having trouble placing structures since the Homestead update went live last month, those small issues have been mostly addressed. Also, the prayers of Primitive+ players have finally been answerred. The hardcore mode has been essentially broken on console for the past few weeks due to crafting bugs, but now everything should work properly with the new systems and Kibble rework in tow. While it definitely took longer than it should have to get these problems solved, at least the fix is here today.

Something more drastic, however, is happening on PC in the form of the new Classic PvP mode. Harkening back to the early days of ARK, these limited servers double resource and breeding rates for mid-sized tribes of up to 25 players each. Much like the experimentation with Small Tribe servers this past summer, Classic PvP offers a new way to experience a game that's very much driven by habitual playstyles. The average server size is tailored to ensuring PvP action is exciting but not too overwhelming.

ARK: Survival Evolved is available now on PC, Xbox One, PS4, Switch, Mac and Linux. This update is exclusive to Xbox One and PS4.
