ARK Brings Laser Sharks and Giant Bees to Console

Yes, that headline is correct. ARK v257 has laser sharks, giant bees, and a rather dangerous-looking volcano. There’s also new hairstyles, new musical tracks, and a couple of other neat TEK items as well, so it’s not all terrifying news. We’re just a bit fixated, honestly. But for good reason. Because laser sharks and giant bees.

V257 offers up new TEK like the Tek Turret, a Cloning Chamber to make carbon copies of your favorite creatures, a new Tek Grenade that sticks on to your enemies, and a Tek Megalodon Saddle that will give you the always delightful laser shark. The volcano has also been redesigned to include a brand new TEK Cave.

There’s more to this update than Tek, of course; new hairstyles, four new creatures, new Explorer’s Notes, and a new “Ascension” progression system have also been included in the update. Patch notes can be found on the forums, and a trailer showing off what’s new is below.
