You will be able to find out a new interesting way of traversing in the motorboat supported by power, a good interactive toilet for people when they can’t stand it anymore, or even an exclusive harpoon gun that can be used for the underwater adventures. Besides those, you guys will have an access to two brand new nice hairstyles as well as a cool Achievement set.
With the addition of five new creatures, ARK game now consists of up to 100 creatures in total in the base game. This won’t count other bosses, specialized versions, or other events. The survivors will now feel more enthusiastic to go hunt for various dinosaurs or tame them.
Hyaenodon dirus is an aggressive and carnivorous creature that is usually seen in packs from three to 6 members. These kind of dinosaurs mostly wander across the mountains or tundras and they are smart predators. A Hyaenodon dirus will have to think and make a decision on joining a battle or not, if the reward for that battle is worth the wounds. But normally, this creature doesn’t like to engage in a fight, but if there is a weakened target or a corpse there, it won’t be hesitant to start a battle.
Hyaenodon is just a small dinosaur, and the survivors may find it very hard to ride on Hyaenodon due to its small size, but, it’s still a well-known pet. These creatures are able to train well due to their smartness. Also, with the group intellectual capabilities, they are considered as awesome and good hunting dogs. These creatures won’t be worried about running out of health since they are able to regain it very quickly through eating the raw flesh from the bone, and this means that they can totally take damage and carry on battling throughout the fight. Hayaenodons are also able to keep meat in some saddle bags that are created in a specific way.
Megatherium formipavor is a big mammal that lives on the island in this ARK game. This creature is known as a friendly herbivore, but some common Megatheriums will usually absorb lots of insects of the island. Specially, these creatures are kind of good at getting rid of their insides without dealing damage to the shell and maximizing the withdrawal of chitin. However, other easygoing and peaceful Megatherium have a tendency to become more hostile and faster.
You can catch sight of Megalania muruspede throughout some complex cave networks of the island. With three meters in length and strong claws, it is able to travel to the cave walls in a vertical way easily. Similar to other Varanidae, this creature is very poisonous, and the toxin it has will gradually deplete the strong health and energy of the victim until he/she dies, and can only be healed again by using a rare antidote.
Megalania has a rare capability to easily climb the absolute environmental walls. Thanks to this, lots of survivors are looking for it and want to domesticate it for their own purposes. It is not likely the most powerful or the quickest or the most difficult mount, but with an ability to climb so easily, it is able to climb mountains, barricades, or cover up itself in trees. If you aim to tame this creature, you need to make sure that you already prepare a stable for it in your tribe.
Hesperornis avenatantes is an aggressive bird that likes to eat fish, and you can normally see it in the rivers, or lakes of the island. This creature has an average size, and when it stands tall, its height could be roughly two-thirds the height of an adult human. It mostly spends time sliding over the water surface. As previously mentioned above, Hesperornis likes to absorb fish, so it can totally hunt for a lot of aquatic creatures easily. The survivors are recommended to tame this creature and preserve them well for a lot of eggs. The eggs will come out after it absorbs a lot of fish. From time to time, the creature will lay a golden egg which is very precious as lots of tribes want it for dietary requirements.
Yutyrannus saevus is a creature that can be similar to Tyrannosaurus Rex, however, it still has its own different characteristics. This creature can use its roar to cause other opponents to be in panic, and most of them in the nearby area will quickly try to flee away from it. A tribe can use a tamed Yutyrannus and let it play defense or offense in war. You can train it to advance a confidence-boosting Battle-Cry that can fight against your rivals in order to cause fear.
