With its non-stop dedication to bringing gamers new content and more ways to play ARK: Survival Evolved, Studio Wildcard zooms through the ARK island on the newest creature from its voluminous dino dossiers, the rolling, stone-harvesting, shell-shocked Doedicurus. For players who already own ARK, just update your game and search for him in the mountains and occasionally in the grasslands. For those new to ARK, go get the game on Steam.
The Armadillo-like Doedicurus is a handy creature to have in your stables, as it can efficiently harvest stone on an industrial scale. It also has tremendous defensive protection via its hard shell, to which it will retreat if threatened. Most importantly, when riding it, you can enter “shell-charge” mode and roll through the ARK as a hardened, nearly indestructible ball… similar to a certain blue rodent! This ability is great for rapidly closing the distance towards enemies, or just plowing through them like a bowling ball, making the Doedicurus fun for the whole tribe.
Also in today’s ARK update, Studio Wildcard has added a modern Spray Painting item for rapid bulk painting of Structures, as well as a mysterious “Plant Species X” that you can farm in a crop plot and which will defend your base with vicious stinging spores!
The most popular open-world Early Access game on Steam, ARK: Survival Evolved brings a new level of depth to the survival genre with a unique blend of emergent multiplayer cooperation and competition. Players awake naked and starving on the beach of a mysterious island among a herd of other confused humans and must explore the vast island of ARK to survive. What is the secret to survival?
