You might already know, might not, there will be a new update for ARK: Survival Evolved. The new Ark Survival Evolved Patch v253 should come to live somewhere around December 21.
There are players looking to get the new v253 patch as soon as possible and they look forward playing on it. On the other side there are players that are scared that after the update they will need to upgrade their GPU.
The New update should bring new Dinos to the game:
Troodon, Tusoteuthis, Pegomastax and Therizinosaurus. There is also going to be 2 new Underwater Caves. However, the most surprising for all the ARK: Survival Evolved players will be the new special surprise item. What we know so far is that the item will be related to the upcoming holidays and should look fun.
ARK: Survival Evolved Patch v253 General Fixes:
The update should also include and support DirectX12 mode for Windows 10 that will give around +20% of performance boost.
ARK: Survival Evolved developers are looking forward to releasing the new update and make the game even more fun by adding more creatures, weapons, gear, armor and new Structures.
Because this is an upcoming update, this is not the end. There are going to be even more new fixes and notes to come.
One last message: The players should not be scared at all! The game should be as playable as before and it should not decrease the performance. Also, it shouldn’t affect player’s experience at all, except making it even better.
