Today developer Studio Wildcard has announced a brand new creature for ARK: Survival Evolved. The new dinosaur is the hard-charging, bone-headed Pachycephalosaurus. Alongside the new dinosaur the new update also adds a raft to explore the oceans and a massive new system for building structures on top of large platforms.
The rather svelte Pachycephalosaurus or “Pachy” is a quick, agile creature and easy-to-tame herbivore, with one exceptional ability: it can execute a “charge” attack that rapidly builds speed, and the harder it hits anything with its bone-plated spiked skull, the more “torpor”-inducing damage it causes. It can even charge straight through structures with this powerful attack, making it a one-of-a-kind creature for quickly causing a KO on enemies.
Developed by Studio Wildcard, in conjunction with Instinct Games, ARK: Survival Evolved will launch in June 2016 on Xbox One via the ID@Xbox program, PlayStation 4 with Project Morpheus support, and full release on Steam. The game is currently in Steam’s Early Access program and includes Oculus Rift VR support as standard.
VRFocus will continue to follow the progress of ARK: Survival Evolved and keep you updated with all the latest details from Studio Wildcard.
