  • Broodmother Boss Arena, and Spotlight: Direbear & Manta!

    Exciting news, Survivors! As of patch 239, you will now be able to spot Direbears prowling the island and the deadly Manta swimming off shore. Two new structures are also now available, the Chemistry Table and Primitive Cannon.

    The first of our boss arenas, the Broodmother Arena, has been added to the ARK! The Broodmother battle is much more epic and dangerous now that Tribes must face her in her very own cobwebbed lair deep within the ARK… but bring some trusty Dinosaurs to the fight and you might just survive!

    The Direbear is both enormous in size and territorial by nature. It is found primarily among the Island's mountain and tundra regions. It’s an imposing creature, ignoring most non-hostile creatures while going about its daily routine of scavenging for meat and edible plant life. That is until intruders enter the territory it considers its own at which point it viciously attacks. Most often it is smartest to just run from an angry Direbear. Once tamed the Direbear is a strong and reliable mount.

    The Manta is a saltwater ray that has developed the ability to also swim into the Island's rivers and shallows, as well as through the open ocean. Normally docile, it is a carnivore only in that it consumes plankton. While not the fastest swimmer around the island Manta Mobula is among the deadliest of small ocean mounts and can be ridden bare-back. Tribes who value striking power over speed often keep large schools of Manta to ride. Its capability to briefly leap out of water provides it a showy tactic for avoiding combat as well. 

    We hope you guys enjoy the latest update, good luck conquering the Broodmother, collecting the fishes with your bear and we definitely recommend taking part in some exciting Manta Races!

    All the best,

    Wildcard Jat & The ARK Survival Evolved Team

    @Jat with the typo x)

    The Broodmother Arena looks absolutely amazing! Glad to see it finally coming in. Shame the other two couldn't make it, but I'm stunned by the sheer beauty of the Arena!

    Manta and Direbear look really nice as well.

    Looks like the Breeding Mechanics got pushed back along with the other Boss Arenas. Oh well. The cannon is here and that's all that matters... And the Manta.

    Here is a picture of a bear dancing. Not a dire bear, those are extinct, silly.

    Does anyone know what happens if you leap out of the water with your manta and then hit the shore? Insta death? Or do you get ported back into the water?

    I would assume death. I've not seen the Devs teleport anything to keep dinos alive in the past ... Which is why beached dolphins can still happen.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't the dossier mention manta is a bare back mount? Wonder if they changed their minds, or if the saddle is optional.
