Primitive+, The Center, Allosaurus, Pelagornis, and the Fishing Frenzy Free Weekend!

Now available as a free DLC in the ‘ARK Official Mods Program’, Primitive+, created by Cedric Burkes, is playable as a functionality mod on all Official ARK Maps and challenges players by altering the available tools, weapons and structures in the game to reflect what humans could realistically create using primitive technology and resources. This does not simply remove advanced technology from ARK, but instead replaces it with a multitude of new resources, engrams and systems.

Players will need to specialize in specific roles and work together to complete their goals. Hunters, farmers, cooks and builders can band together to create a new, functioning society where diplomacy and even economics can matter. In Primitive Plus, you will not only cope with human society’s limitations, but unlock its potential.

As well as the release of Primitive+, this huge patch also covers a large expansion to The Center! The Center, has now been expanded to include new biomes, islands, caves, and a completely new boss arena for survivors to explore, as well as the addition of a wide variety creatures to tame and be hunted.

Pelagornis is one of the island’s most versatile mounts because of its ability to fly, walk, and surface-swim. It has a wingspan rivaling Argentavis, and possesses a beak filled with tooth-like projections for snagging fish and webbed feet for paddling upon the ocean surface. Though it’s versatility comes at a cost, the same webbed feet that allow Pelagornis to serenely maneuver along the ocean’s surface prevent it from snatching prey from the ground, which may limit its appeal to some survivors.

Allosaurus, smaller but faster than Tyrannosaurus, larger but slower than Carnotaurus, Allosaurus is the island’s resident pack-hunting theropod. While most aggressive theropods are relatively solitary creatures, Allosaurus lives in groups of three. One Allosaurus is the Pack Leader, while the others are its mates or a beta male. The Allosaurus has evolved to hunt in packs. Its saw-shaped teeth leave its prey bleeding and maimed, making escape difficult. Once an Allosaurus slows a creature with its cutting bite, the rest of its pack quickly close in for the kill…

  • New Structure: Spiral Staircase (Stone/Wood/Metal)
