Ark Survival Evolved is set to have its menu system completely overhauled according to Jeremy Stieglitz. One of the long term niggles of the game is the clumsy layout of its menu’s, some in the game, some around the standard menu layout at startup and a lot at the character/server creation section. It seems that the players are not the only ones who are less than keen on the old menu system, the developers aren’t either. Jeremy Stieglitz – Lead Designer, Lead Programmer, & Co-Creative Director of ARK: Survival Evolved. Co-Founder of Studio Wildcard – recently tweeted about the upcoming v256 Patch.
