Last week, we saw the Giganto
introduced to ARK: Survival Evolved
. This week, it's the turn of the "Doedicurus" to take the spotlight.
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.
As well as the Doedicurus, the mysteriously-named "Plant Species X", a plant that will defend your base with its' spores, was also revealed.ARK: Survival Evolved
will be arriving on Xbox One as part of the Game Preview program in winter, with the full release scheduled for June 2016.
