  • Introducing the Megalosaurus!

    large.Dossier_Megalosaurus.jpg.7789e0a7b

    Common Name: Megalosaurus
    Species: Megalosaurus Noctedominus
    Time: Mid Jurassic
    Diet: Carnivore
    Temperament: Aggressive Nocturnal

    Wild

    Much like the Island’s other large theropods, Megalosaurus Noctedominus is an aggressive carnivore that should not be taken lightly. Unlike most of the other theropods, it is a primarily nocturnal creature. As dawn approaches, Megalosaurus begins looking for a secluded place to spend the day sleeping in relative safety.

    Conversely, if disturbed during the day, Megalosaurus is significantly more sluggish. Either way, however, its primary combat tactic is to bite onto its target then lock its jaws shut in an iron-strength grip.

    Only larger creatures can hope to break free once Megalosaurus locks its jaw. The creature then proceeds to gnaw on its prey until death. It’s a terrifying, grisly spectacle to watch, and a formidable tactic for a tribe to employ against more nimble opponents.

    Domesticated

    While Megalosaurus is not the most powerful theropod, it is still highly sought after by night-raiders. Due to its nocturnal nature,  Megalosaurus becomes much more formidable at night -- dodging attacks, conserving stamina, and attacking more accurately, to name a few of its enhanced talents.

    I hope he will replace the t-rex in the north, I personally think that the t-rex are too common everywere on the island...

    These dossier reveals never mean the creature is now in-game, it's basically a trailer for what the dev's have planned. When they release a creature Spotlight video, that means the creature's actual addition to the game is imminent.

    Thanks, @I Want MY Burd

    Really, another theropod? On the bright side it does provide some good additions to the game. Will the decs be going back and reviewing the dossiers to decide if other animals will be getting nocturnal abilities. I personally think that utahraptor would work as a creature that can be active both day and night.

     

    Edit : And yay for semi realistic feathers on a large theropod

    I love it so much it has to be one of the best dossiers so far especially the design of how the feathers blend so well with the scales

    I'm looking at the size of the animal it has in its jaws, and if that's a parasaur then I'm guessing this thing is about the size, if not a little bigger than the Rex, though maybe not as powerful, except at nighttime. I'm really excited for this, as well as others.

    Wanted Yutyrannus as the final theropod, but I'll take it! And bruh! It can dodge attacks... We're getting evasive maneuvers! Imagine riding this monster with a pack of Troodon at your side. It's kinda RIP to anything you come across bar a Giga. Most hype Dossier since Megalania, hands down.

    The dossier looks nice, as always, but...

    Carnivores, carnivores, carnivores. Carnivores everywhere. Frickin' nothing but carnivores. Is that what this game is going to look like as a finished product? A "survival" game that plays more like an FPS because 75% of the animals on the island want to eat you, and you can't cross the next hill without running into four different species of predator? It's hard to imagine interesting predator-prey relationships arising from this population, and even more difficult to imagine that once you guys get improved AI in the mix certain species of herbivore will become excessively rare for no other reason than too many different things are trying to eat them.

    I agree we need more herbivores that were built to protect themselves and there heard iguanadons need to be put in the game it in the dossier add it already it's perfect and there bad asses who would fight like a sumo wrestler cheating (no thumbs!) or better yet more flyer I feel theres a lack of flyers in the game

    This looks baller as, most likely a mountain/snow biome creature. Should be good for base defence and even offence too! I'm hell stoked for this!

    They're bringing out the Therizinosaurus too which is coming soon I believe, yea more herbivores would be cool, and more aquatic-like dinosaurs

    With the Megalosaurus introduced, carnivorous dinosaurs only outmatch herbivores by one species in Ark. And one of those carnivores is the Oviraptor that poses no threat and eats eggs. There're far more herbivorous mammals than there are carnivores, and almost half of the Reptiles and Amphibians, while they do eat meat, won't attack you ( ie. the Beezlebufo, Quetzal, Icthy, etc). People keep forgetting those 'peaceful' meat-eaters. 

    But I do think it would be nice if the developers fiddled with some of the spawn rates. I mean, first seeing a Rex in the wilds in Ark is scary. But you'll probably see five more in the next two minutes and it soon becomes 'oh another Rex'. Larger carnivores should be scaled back in terms of how easy they are to find. Make it feel rewarding when you finally stumble upon one. Maybe they'll do something of the sort when hunting territories are established.
