ARK: Survival Evolved [Steam] is due to release in full on August the 8th, 2017 and they have also announced a new free map which is available right now.
They have announced and released 'Ragnarok', a new officially supported huge map created under their 'Sponsored Mods' program. Check out the trailer for this free new content:
Apparently it's not actually working on the Linux/Mac clients yet though.
Going back to the release date news, the developers are promising some surprise release content and content beyond the full launch. The claim to have massive amounts still coming to the game, like new features, creatures, story and more.

My problem with ARK, is that the developers clearly put very little attention into the Linux version. It's still incredibly buggy, parts of it are completely broken (hello Caves), yet it's still such an engrossing game that I really want to play. I really hope one day they spend a bit of time polishing up the Linux version. They certainly aren't alone in needing to do that though!
Also, as a reminder, we do actually have an ARK server that recently had a refresh. See a list of our servers here.
