ARK: Survival Evolved on Xbox One plays catch-up with kangaroo-like Procoptodon

The Xbox One version of ARK: Survival Evolved has almost caught up with its PC counterpart by getting the 231.9 update from the end of 2015 that introduced the kangaroo-like hopper known as the Procoptodon.


The PC version of ARK: Survival Evolved has been receiving frequent updates, but now Studio Wildcard is issuing the first update for the Xbox One version of the game. In addition to opening up over 100 new servers and bringing this version to par with PC version 231.9, the Xbox One version of ARK will also be getting a new prehistoric creature.

The Procoptodon first debuted on PC at the end of 2015 as part of ARK's new year's update. For those unfamiliar with the creature, it can leap great bounds and jump over massive obstacles. It's a bit of a co-op ride, with one player controlling the beast itself, while the player riding inside the pouch can utilize any and all weaponry.

Catch the full kangaroo-style action in the video below.

As for the PC crowd, they got their update earlier this week.

Not only did they get the Dimetrodon and the Dung Beetle, but they also got some new abilities. Players can now craft Beer Kegs for status-enhancing effects that come at the risk of nasty hangovers. That update is available now and those patch notes can be found on Steam.
