ARK: Survival Evolved - Version 262 Patch Notes

Studio Wildcard has been working hard to bring us a lot of new features and fixes over the last few weeks. Version 262 is here for PC and brings a lot of improvements to the ARK.

As we near closer and closer to the August release date for ARK: Survival Evolved, some can't help but wonder just how they will solve every little thing that folks might have to gripe about. They just need to trust that the development team understands the concerns of the community and have to prioritize solutions.
