Studio Wildcard has pushed live the Tek Tier update for ARK: Survival Evolved on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, introducing new weapons, armors, and gear to the game.

The first phase of the Tek Tier update includes the following craftable items:

  • TEK Helmet – Contains a built-in oxygen tank and three different type of vision: Sonar, which identifies tribes, allies, enemies and creatures, Night (see in the dark) and a combined Sonar/Night mode.
  • TEK Boots – These boots let players scale vertical surfaces with ease, along with negating any falling damage.
  • TEK Pants – Enable a super run that lets players speed through solid objects. Combined with the TEK Shirt, the pants allow for faster flight and a cool superheroic stance.
  • TEK Shirt – Jet Pack! Ever wanted to be Iron Man? Don this item then rocket upwards into space or hover above your enemies to better view the devastation you have wrought!
  • TEK Gauntlets – Powerful super punch – dash-smash your foes across the map with this powered up fisticuffs feature.
  • TEK Rifle – Powered by Element, the rifle features a scope that can sync up with the TEK Helmet’s vision modes for double the death-dealing.
  • TEK Rex Saddle – Mount lasers on your T-Rex. Yes…lasers…on…a…T-Rex
  • TEK Replicator – Needed for crafting items from the TEK tier.
  • TEK Transmitter –  This portable terminal functions similarly to an Obelisk, allowing players to transfer characters, creatures and items across the ARK.

To create this new loot, players will need to gather the newly introduced Element resource, which is gained by successfully completing Boss Arenas. Each Boss now has three difficulty levels (easy, medium, hard) and after defating each level will reward players with unique Tek Knowledge engrams, element, and other general Boss Rewards.

Finally, the update introduces four new creatures to the ARK: the Ovis Aries, Baryonyx Aquafulgur, Basilosaurus Solatiumfecit, and the Purlovia Maxima.
