ARK v243 beings forth many changes: The Island, as it has come to be known to its inhabitants, has undergone a new makeover, with the addition of the Redwood Forest and the extension of the Snow biome! Take refuge among the Redwood trees with new Wood and Metal Tree Platforms! Live like a Furry Forest Creature in these massive trees! Tap into the massive redwoods to extract their sap for healthy concoctions using the new Tree Sap Taps. Reach new heights with the Retractable Rope Ladders. Extend or retract these flimsy ladders, which are good for letting allies onto your ramparts while keeping the enemy out. There is a whole new way of life to explore!
The gargantuan Titanosaur -- potentially the largest creature ever in a multiplayer action game -- slowly roams the ARK, and is neither friend nor foe. Whichever Tribes can successfully tame the beast -- which is no easy feat -- can gain a massive benefit to their forces. Unable to be tamed like a traditional creature you may be used to, and being extremely rare, the Titanosaur will certainly be a prized possession to any tribe who can successfully claim one.
