New Beasts of Prey Update Improves Graphics and Adds Content

Octagon Interactive has been working hard on Beasts of Prey since its released a number of weeks ago. The developer has released a host of fixes and updates for the title in its Early Access form, rapidly working to combat bugs and issues. In the space of the last few days a total of three new patches have arrived, addressing even more problems, upgrading certain features and even adding a number of new systems to the title.


The updates are detailed on the title’s Steam store page. Highlights in terms of fixes include a bug that was occasionally preventing players from gathering stone, a range of issues surrounding the title’s crafting system and some faulty user interface (UI) buttons. In terms of additions, the most recent patch includes a food system in which players can skin defeated dinosaurs to obtain meat, leather and skin. The title’s visuals are also said to have been upgraded, and the dinosaurs themselves have seen an improvement in AI.

Beasts of Prey is a massively multiplayer online first-person shooter (MMOFPS) in which players survive in randomly generated worlds in which dinosaurs roam. The title is set to feature full support for the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) headset. The title hopes to reach its beta development stage in October 2014, and plans to leave the Early Access stage within six months. It is available on PC, Mac and Linux for £26.99 GBP. VRFocus will continue to follow the title’s progress and report back with any more updates.
