"Ark: Survival Evolved" has received a new massive update. Fans can now enjoy their world of dinosaurs as the game now has a 10 GB update. Players can now enjoy a new map design that is totally huge.

What to Expect on the New Landscape

The massive new landscape is more or less 70 sq. kilometers which double the in-game playable geography of "Ark: Survival Evolved."

"The Center is filled with stunning lighting effects, lava rivers, giant picturesque mountains, misty floating islands, ancient underground ruins, enormous ice caves, and of course beyond the breathtaking sights there lay dangerous threats and mysterious secrets to unravel with you and your tribe mates," Studio Wildcard said.

The massive map update which is called The Center is now officially part of "Ark: Survival Evolved." This new update is a free download on Steam PC and Xbox One.

"Ark: Survival Evolved" Popularity

The huge success of "Ark: Survival Evolved" can be credited to its unique gameplay of a combination of Jurassic Park meets Minecraft theme. Players are able to build their own shelters while protecting themselves from the harsh environment and the dinosaurs that they can also capture, tame and train.

Full Release Date

"Ark: Survival Evolved" is still under development and will be available for full launch for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam PC. However, fans can continuously enjoy the game on Xbox One as part of Microsoft's Game Preview. The game is also available on Steam's Early Access program, according to Gamasutra.
