ARK: Survival Evolved Wiki

Released - 10 July, 2016

This is a server-side only patch. Clients will remain on 244.4. [1]

  • Experimental fast save/load code implemented for servers. Approximately 4x faster and 75% smaller. We strongly recommend backing up your save games if you intend to try this out, as we're still testing it. Use with launch commandline "-newsaveformat"
  • Fixed a case where armor could be circumvented using gun weapons. Requires Server Update.
