ARK: Survival Evolved for PC Gets New Valguero Map

Studio Wildcard has just released the latest map for their online survival game, ARK: Survival Evolved.

The Valguero map is a free update that is now available on the Steam version of the game. The map is 63 square kilometers, and features eight biomes, vast underground cave networks, hidden ruins, a boss challenge arena, and the Deinonychus. You can check out a trailer above.

Here’s a rundown of some key features:

  • Expanded Exploration: Over 63 square kilometers of new land and sea to explore!
  • Peaks and Valleys: Eight Biomes with a vast array of climates and dangers – tread lightly through the hazards of Skeleton Gorge, see the vistas on top of the Twin Peaks or find remnants of the past at the Lost Temple.
  • Triple Threat Boss Challenges: A boss arena where players face an epic battle against a Megapithecus, Manticore and Dragon in this heavy-hitting, triple threat encounter! Face familiar dangers in the End-Game Boss encounter in an entirely different way!
  • New Dinosaur – Deinonychus: Encounter the ill-natured 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.
  • Into The Trenches: A large network of caves to spelunk as you delve into unexplored territory featuring different themes and varied perks, including the extensive Aberration Trench.
  • Secrets From the Ancient Age: Explore scattered ruins throughout the world of forgotten Valguero survivors.

Valguero will be coming to the PS4 and Xbox One versions sometime in July.

ARK: Survival Evolved is now available for Windows PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and iOS.
