The new ARK Survival Evolved PS4 and Xbox One update lands later this month
ARK Survival Evolved is a game updated on a regular basis with developer Studio Wildcard slowly bringing the title up to its complete stage.
It’s one of the only early access titles currently available to play on the PS4 and is also part of the official Xbox One Games Preview program and Steam Early Access.
The current schedule sees ARK Survival updated on PC first, followed by consoles.
And now Studio Wildcard has confirmed the dates for the next ARK Survival Evolved PS4 and Xbox One content update.
The next launch has a set release date of April 24, however, fans should note that this could change closer to launch date.
The next patch includes four new dinosaurs, as well as a big expansion to the Tek Tier system, new endgame gear that can be used to build specialised equipment.
This month will see the release of underwater bases, Teleporters and Power Generators, as well as the controversial Flyer Nerf.

New Tek Tier Forcefield provides a new raiding challenge
The Flyer Nerf was recently released on PC, dramatically altering the aerial ability of many dinos and providing new roles for them to play. The re-balancing effort was made to help define roles specific to each of the flyers, below is Wildcard’s explanation:
Ptero – Fast, sprinting scout, with low hp/stamina, but quicker stamina recovery. Fastest flier in the game (except for wild wyverns).
Argent – Tanky fighter, can scrap well and take some hits, high stamina/carry weight compared to all other fliers (except Quetz), while still maintaining some agility.

Moth – "beginner" mount, lowest stats across the board for explicit travel or fighting, but a powerful special attack for specialized use.
Pelagornis – Versatility flier with generally low stats, but unique functionality, and other special abilities to offset its lack of direct stat power.
Quetz – Sky Bronto. Slow, extreme stamina, extreme weight capacity, good for prolonged sieges or for moving massive quantities of things to and fro. High health pool, but extremely poor maneuverability and very vulnerable.
Tapejara – Tactical flier. Between the Argent and Ptero for overall stats, but with multi-mount support and latching abilities, it can carry well armed players in and out of the battlefield or to remote locations.
Wyvern – Lord of the skies. Low stamina, moderate move speed, poor agility, but extreme power and versatility.
