Ark Survival Evolved Update (18/11/2021): Patch Notes, Bug Fixes And More

Ark: Survival Evolved

Ark: Survival Evolved continues to be one of the most popular open-world games right now on the gaming market.

Released back in 2017, the action-adventure survival game has grown in stature are the years have passed and has accumulated a SteamDB rating of 80% and with over 30,000 concurrent players consistently.

This has been helped by regular updates that have been introduced by Studio Wildcard, the game's developers and publishers, to ensure that Ark runs as smoothly as possible. 

There has not been a significant patch brought into the game for some time. The last one of note was the Halloween event titled Fear Evolved 5 as part of Community Crunch 289. 

While Ark may have received average reviews on Metacritic, the game still has a fan base of more than three million players, according to PatchBot, which is only narrowly behind the likes of Rainbow Six Siege in popularity.

Nevertheless, we expect this surge to continue as the days, weeks and months pass as Wildcard look to bring us the best possible game filled with prehistoric creatures and mythical animals to discover and tame as you make your way through this unforgiving world in what is truly the survival of the fittest.
