You have until July 21st to kick back and relax in the summer sun Patch Notes Roundup {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/66780e1ec5f45c32c2c62b06c9b4de29e2b2f5de.jpg It's been a few months since we've done the last patch notes round-up and much has been added. From the launch of Crystal Isles on PC to the introduction of ARK to the Epic Games Store, there's been much going on. With hundreds of additions, changes, or fixes, we figured it'd be good to kick off an ARK summer with a recap of the past few months.

It’s been five exciting years since ARK: Survival Evolved opened the way to the ARK and survivors around the world set out on half a decade’s worth of adventure. In this Crunch, we’ll be covering the unique, real-world dino, the Tropeognathus, the much anticipated Crystal Isles launch, our fun Anniversary Event, and a blast from the past by way of Timecapsule Servers. Crystal Isles Launch {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/45084a7ebbc6e325958f235b543c1cf17f626db4.jpg If you’ve been following the mod community, you’re probably familiar with Crystal Isles. Its supernatural beauty won the hearts of the ARK community since its debut as a mod in 2016. For four years it has grown to over 240K subscriptions and has called for many requests for the community to make it an official map. We’ve decided to give it a new coat of polish to bring out its true shine. The newly updated Crystal Isles launches with a 150 sq km map with a wide variety of awe-inspiring biomes teeming with life. Whether you think you know Crystal Isles or plan to explore this map for the first time, be prepared for new breathtaking discoveries. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/38dc71aeb0fc8cfda5a60c313678534ac56e7a3e.jpg Build your bases high in rainforest canopies or mysterious floating islands, then dive deep into undersea caverns in search of resources.

Introducing Tropeognathus! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/8729288/6bba04595d07361170942326ca025f37b85f5023.jpg Common Name: Tropeo Species: Tropeognathus mesembrinus Time: Cretaceous Diet: Piscivore Temperament: Neutral Up close, Tropeognathus mesembrinus is easily recognized by the keeled crests on its snout, but with wingspans of up to twenty-seven feet, you’re sure to spot it before then. These large wings are not only ideal for catching air currents over its ocean hunting grounds, but they also let Tropeognathus draft off of other flying creatures by flying behind them. While not the fastest flyer on the Isles, when combined with its remarkable stamina, this makes Tropeognathus well suited for long distance flight. Because it’s on the wing so much, Tropeognathus is best snared by those riding another flier. I've noticed the more clever tribespeople using chain bolas to capture them while airborne. Domesticated Once tamed, Tropeognathus has proven quite useful to the people of the Isles beyond mere transportation. For example, its toothed beak can grind down many common goods to their base components, which is a great way to recycle items and gear! Well, so long as you have a rag handy to wipe off the spit... That bite is punishing enough to crack armor and grind through it over time, and Tropeognathus can blow away flora and fauna
