Beware packs of Compsognathuses in ARK: Survival Evolved

    
18

Going toe-to-toe with one dinosaur in ARK: Survival Evolved can be a risky proposition, but thanks to the recent addition of the Compsognathus in update 224, players now have to worry about packs. Called Compy for short, this dino is fairly docile when alone or in very small numbers. However, once a gang of them gets together, they become aggressive carnivores that call any nearby fellows to join in the attacks. Watch them in action in the trailer below.

Update 224 also added a number of new items to the game (wall lamps, a rocket turret, and sea mines) as well as the ability to create personalized recipes for food and drink. On top of that, persitent tribe logs were implemented to record tribe activities and events.

Siphaed Pocket raptors? You are aware this is an actual species of dinosaur and that they hunt in larger groups than raptors do yes?

I was geeking out at this guy’s little harbor and boat slip kind of thing he’d made.  Parked in the slips were 2 massive prehistoric sharks with saddles, waiting for their master.   heh.  Like a doll’s eye…    :D

I have twin AMD R7 265’s and it was a complete slide show if I got anywhere near MOP town / upgraded to 16gb and it runs like butter now (well “now” being like last month when I last played it …)

Sounds exactly like the average Occupy gathering.

Xijit for me it came down to graphics card.  GTX680 gave me a pretty slideshow.  GTX980ti gives me a smooth game at 1440p and Epic settings, same system otherwise (i7 w/16GB ram)

i’m only just starting, but it’s got amazing graphics.  i’ve always been a dino nut so this is a special treat.  every new species they introduce is something new to geek out over.  I’m still amazed over seeing those 2 triceratops kill a carnotaurus with coordinated attacks.    mostly they just stamp around doing their thing, but when there are theropods around stuff gets crazy.   I got stung to death by a giant scorpion, that sucked…
If you want to test your rig, this is a good game for that.   It took a lot of horsepower but seeing it on Epic settings is breathtaking.  I need to get some screencaps.
