ARK: Survival Evolved just introduced its newest creature in the game; the Gigantopithecus. This ape-like creature is a rather strange creature. It is usually quite passive, but it has a very short temper when it comes to its personal space. Once another creature gets close, this gentle giant can quickly turn into a rampaging beast.
The Gigantopithecus Fibrarator – as is its full name – can be tamed via careful, non-violent feeding without raising its aggression. When domesticated, the hairy ape-like creature can don a helmet on its head and ride its survivor on its shoulders to utilize its tremendous strength and throw them over enemy barricades and walls! As apes are usually good at throwing poop, you can consider yourself a giant poop to make it an even more enjoyable experience when he throws you. Or don’t think of it that way, that’s fine as well.
Being the current most popular Early Access game on Steam, ARK: Survival Evolved has been rapidly trying to get out new content for its continuously growing player-base and has been successful in doing just that. In addition to the introduction of the Gigantopithecus Fibrarator, the newest patch also introduces Scuba Gear! Survivors can now completely explore the oceanic depths with enhanced movement, vision and remain submerged for extended periods of time.
