ARK: Survival Evolved will be getting a new free map to all owners of the game on 6/18.
The new content map is called Valguero, and has a bunch of new goodies for all players to rejoice in. Players will also be blessed with a new dinosaur breed, alongside other content packed into this free update.
Studio Wildcard has been pushing out content for ARK constantly. Even though they’ve done some questionable actions, like promoting DLC when the base game was performing poorly, that’s not to say they don’t give players a bone here and there.
The new Salguero map comes with an awesome trailer to go with the content pack. The map is 63km total of new areas to explore and with 8 different biomes. There will also be new weather patterns and natural map hazards.
From the trailer, we can see that there are snow areas, lava, deserts, and water. This new map should keep you busy for some time and I know that this will be the first (and only) thing I’m doing all weekend.
Valduero will also bring the new breed Deinonychus, which are raptors known for their quick agility and speed.
As for dinosaurs, there will be a new boss area with 3 enemies coming together: Megaphiticus, Dragon, and Matincore- all at the same time. Of course, this end game boss is geared specifically towards end-game players.
ARK: Survival Evolved has come a long way since inception. The game is a lot more fleshed out now and polished. You can pick up a copy on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. The game also has been released on the Switch.
