ARK: Survival Evolved Prepares for Free Expansion Map, Valguero to Drop in July

Studio Wildcard confirmed that their new expansion map for ARK: Survival Evolved, “Valguero” drops on console on July 19th, 2019. This update will add a 63 square kilometer area, with exotic biomes to explore. This update also adds an exciting, grumpy new dinosaur, the Deinonychus.  Similar to the raptor, it uses speed and agility to leap wall ledge to wall ledge as it seeks high vantage points to lie in wait for prey. This contentious beast is fearless and will hunt prey much larger than itself, latching onto a larger dinosaur’s back with its sickle-shaped claws as it starts to feed before its victim is even dead.

There are caves to explore, trenches to delve into, and ancient secrets from a time long-forgotten to uncover. Eight biomes in total will be on this map, and there’s a triple threat of boss challenges. A boss arena waits, where players do battle against a Megapithecus, Manticore, and Dragon in a triple-threat of violence. This will let players tackle end-game bosses in a whole new way.
