The v733.0 update has been added to the XBox One version of ARK: Survival Evolved that brings a unique feature into the game called 'extinction servers'. Extinction servers are separate from the main game servers. When extinction servers are enabled, players begin at level one and have a month to grow their characters with badges awarded at various milestones along the way. At month's end, a meteor hits and all is destroyed.
Players will be able to keep track of how much time is left with the addition of a countdown timer.
Check out the official ARK: Survival Evolved Wiki to see the full patch notes.
In secondary ARK news, the finalists in the Worldwide Mod Contest have been announced and players can head to the special voting section of the forums to choose their favorites.
Contestants are vying for cash prizes up to $10,000 for first place in each category.
