- DINOS: Tame, Train and Ride the Giant Beaver and the Terror Bird
- TOOLS: Use new tools including the Grappling Hook and the Handcuffs
- TRIBE ALLIANCES (PvE and PvP). Yes, finally, small Tribes can band together against larger ones!
- Approximately 20% performance increase!
- All options exposed for dedicated servers, finally! Even custom lists of Engrams & Dino Multipliers, etc!
