Just because a dinosaur is roly poly doesn’t mean it isn’t a force to be reckoned with. ARK: Survival Evolved’s latest addition is the Doedicurus, an herbivore that can literally roll itself (and practically its rider) into a nearly indestructible armored ball able to plow through enemies like they were bowling pins, making it a fun mount for exploration. Get a glimpse of this ball-of-fun in the video below.
The same patch also introduced items to enhance your home and base decorating; there’s a spray paint gun and a plant with stinging spores you can grow to protect your abode. Additionally, devs revealed another dino dossier: the leaping Terror Bird. Possibly angry because of its inability to really fly, this quick-sprinting aggressive bird makes a great combat mount.
For those who missed it, last week the team reiterated what activities will net a full ban on all official servers, including third party cheats, aimbots, ESP cheats, anything else that modifies the game in such a way as to give an unintended advantage, and derogatory and personalized harassment. Players are encouraged to send the team reports if they come across these problems.
Finally, ARK is free for everyone on Steam this weekend!
