[Steam page] In its rapid pace to bring gamers fresh content and new ways to play ARK: Survival Evolved, Studio Wildcard unearthed today the newest creature from its dino dossiers, the erratic, muscle-bound Gigantopithecus. The ape-like Gigantopithecus is at times passive, friendly, and low-key, but when prompted, can be a fierce, dangerous, and unpredictable force of primeval nature.
Gigantopithecus has to be tamed via careful, non-violent feeding without raising its aggression. Savvy gamers who aim to fight in more modern battles can domesticate the hairy ape-like creature, don a helmet on its head, then ride on its shoulders to utilize its tremendous strength to throw them over enemy barricades and walls. Seems like a really awesome ally to have in the fight for survival!
The most popular Early Access game on Steam, ARK: Survival Evolved brings a new level of depth to the survival genre with a unique mix of multiplayer cooperation and competition. Players awake naked and starving on the beach of a mysterious island of ARK, among many others, and must explore the vast island to survive. This sand-box game is ready for you. Are you ready for it?
