This past week, Studio Wildcard released a new update for their survival game ARK on PC. What’s the update? Beavers and Handcuffs. No, it isn’t 50 Shades of ARK (as much as I kind of want to see that crossover).
The first half of the update is the Castoroides Feliconcisor, or more easily said, the Giant Beaver. These creatures live near water, and with their chisel-shaped teeth are able to build dams and efficiently gather wood. This adorable creature also acts as a mobile crafting station and has the ability to swim. Just look at it!

The second part of the update is handcuffs. Use these new items to imprison poachers of your belongings like, say, your new beaver. As excited as I am for giant beavers being a thing, I am extremely intrigued to see how people use the handcuffs. (Spoiler alert: it isn’t going to end well for A LOT of people.)
Check out both of these updates now on ARK for PC. For you Xbox One survivalists, the update will be coming later today, February 29th, 2016.
