ARK’s upcoming additions include a bowling ball dino and angry bird

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!

Shermanx DugFromTheEarth the problem is that this performance increase does not apply to Nvidia so now no one gets it

FyreyEnigma Higgens I think if you’re thinking Electronic Arts and “done right’ in the same sentence…you’ve got the wrong EA.

agemyth Higgens Weird, I just said it. They have churned out more content this summer, than their competitors have in their entire EA run. They have a hard date set for release and they seem very much on track. I can very much say, they are doing EA right.

Unfortunately ive been holding off on Win 10 for now, until they smooth out more bugs, and until other games get their game working 100% with win 10 as well. Good to know that there is a performance increase with it though

DugFromTheEarth I think this might be one of the issues they have on the free weekend.  Without optimization first there will probably be lots of players who associate performance issues with the game in general rather than as an artifact of the Early Access.  Heck, players who paid for the game (and who, I hope, know they bought into an unfinished game) still complain about it.
