Studio Wildcard has announced ARK: Survival Evolved will start commercial launch in June 2016 on PC, Xbox One and PS4. The game will get Project Morpheus support on PS4 and PC players will be able to purchase the full game on Steam. While the full release is over 10 months away, the latest update introduces in new creature Doedicurus. You can see it in action in the video below.
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.
ARK: Survival Evolved is now in Steam early access. You can purchase the access here.
