Spotlight: Terror Bird [+ Grappling Hook!], Patch 235, and the Steam Sale!
Later today the ARK will be updated to Version 235 and with it comes a plethora of new content, including our new terrifying friend, the Terror Bird!
The Terror Bird also known as the Phorusrhacidae Rapidesultor, is a ferocious but tamable avian capable of high-speed sprints and brief hover-like leaps. It is not a flying bird per se, as its flight is comprised of short, sustained “Joust”-like glides or leaps. At eight to 12 feet tall, the Terror Bird is aggressive, but still tamable and ridable, making it an excellent combat mount, particularly for harassing and scouting. Riders of the Terror Bird gain most of the benefits of a fast, mobile ground-based theropod, while also gaining some of the freedom of movement from a flyer. It is known to show traits related to theropods such as the Utahraptor, Carnotaurus and the ever formidable Tyrannosaurus Rex.
The Grappling Hook is a game-changing tool enabling Survivors the ability to scale cliffs, hitch a ride by attaching to a flying creature, wrangle other players/prisoners, or even small creatures to drag along! Learning how to regularly use this tool will alter the nature of your attacks and dramatically expand the range of your travels with greater ease and fun!
Today’s ARK update will also include:
- Tribe Alliances (PvE and PvP). Yes, finally, small Tribes can band together against larger ones!
- Fishing Upgrade! Coelacanth Nutritia, common name Coel, are now different sizes (and give different amount of resources depending on the fish size...gives the rare chance of a super-large catch!)
- Fully Localizable Game Text: Now you can crowd-source translation and dynamic fonts for any language without Modding/TC's!
- All current Items added to the Master Items ID array
