Dino TLC - The Gigantopithecus

  • Receives a model update, animation update, new fur, sound pass and some new abilities:

  • Added the capability to climb ziplines (but not jump between them)
  • Added a jump
  • It can now carry and throw small creatures
  • Throwing has been made more accurate, similarly to crabs with targetting cursor

Dino TLC - The Direbear

  • When riding a Direbear, players will be immune to bees. They won't be able to knock you off your bear, and they will target focus the bear instead of the player.
  • The Direbear will also be able to harvest honey from wild beehives without attracting bees or hurting the hive using it's alternative attack. Plus the amount of honey it receives will be 3x the standard amount.
  • Increased swim speed

  • Sniff tertiary ability to indicate nearby explorer notes, or to detect buried/stealth creatures

Dino TLC - The Rex

  • Receives a model update, animation update, and some new abilities:
  • Its roar should receive a CD and make non-allies (under a certain dragweight) poop to act as a small stun/interrupt. There will be a cooldown on victims so that they cannot be pooplocked continuously.
  • The roar will not be able to scare anything above its level
  • Roar will cause players to poop but not stun them
  • Rex's ability to climb over small rocks and steeper slopes have been improved.


PS4 - 520.0

Released - February 23, 2018

Important notice regarding the upcoming turret change: as of v520 turrets will be hard-number limited to 100. This means that you will not be able to build over 100 turrets within a 10k unit radius, however existing set-ups with over 100 turrets will still function as normal until the a future date yet to be announced when we will enable the hard limit, which will retroactively disable (randomly selected) turrets that are over the 100 limit from functioning.
