Upcoming changes

The Xbox version is slightly behind on the PC version, so for upcoming changes you can check out the PC patch notes (v232v233 and v234), or our post on the full list of differences between Xbox one and PC. The reason for the delay in patches on the Xbox has to do with the way in which Microsoft needs to approve everything and some other constraints from their side.

These notes and earlier version can also be found on the SurviveTheArk forum.


  1. you really need to give warning or something i was taming something and then you just decided to upgrade the servers…it needs to be if no server announcement is given and your taming and lose the tame and gear we get a free tame and gear back because this is just crap

      Sorry to hear about your loss. However, this is only fan-website so we cannot do anything about the update mechanics of the game. You can try the official forums on and see if they can be of assistance.

  2. I know this is a stupid question but how do I update the game on my Xbox ? I wasn’t prompted to do so and it seems I’m still on v730.1. Thanks in advance if anyone answers my question.

  3. Im on xbox one and two of my friend try to download v731 … and since the download they are not abble to play , ..

    1. Sorry for my english .. lol we restart our xbox1 , and we reload the ark game on xbox , and we still cant play …

      1. I’m having the same problem it’s because the server bulid isn’t the same as your game so they’re incompatible so I think we’ve just lost everything. 🙁
