What is new in today’s ARK Update 2.87 Patch Notes?

  • Fixed Carcha disappearing on genesis in SP.
  • Added stability fixes.
  • Added performance improvements.
  • Other minor tweaks.

The following changes were added previously.


  • Eggcellent Adventure returns until April 25th! Follow the trails of wild Bunny Dodo’s and Bunny Oviraptor’s to gather Bunny Eggs for special event loot. Use the server parameter -ActiveEvent=Easter to begin the event.
  • For the duration of Egccellent Adventure, we will be disabling the world buffs from Baby Boon & Maewing Poach on Genesis Part 2 on the Official Network. In the past, we’ve adjusted for the impact events have had on the rates by tweaking the bonuses that we use during the holidays, however, those tweaks lead to unfavorable circumstances on maps that aren’t Genesis Part 2, so going forward during breeding events, we’ll be disabling these mission buffs specifically as not to affect the bonuses on other maps.
