ARK: Dinosaur Discovery Adds New Map In Latest Update

Check out the new map, new abilities, and other improvements to ARK: Dinosaur Discovery as Studio Wildcard reveals a new update.

Studio Wildcard, along with development partner Grove Street Games, has released a new update for ARK: Dinosaur Discovery. The update comes to the Nintendo Switch exclusive title, giving players a few new things to do in what is essentially a much more simplified version of the main franchise. First off, you're getting a brand new map included in the game that will take you to an entirely different location that holds some new mysteries to be found. You'll also gain two new abilities to try out as you have a teleport ability to zoom almost anywhere you want in a matter of moments, and a whistle ability that will get a creature to spawn where you're at as if you called them. We have more details and notes from the developers below, as well as a small introduction video to show off the content you can experience. The update is available right now.
