Spotlight: Gigantopithecus!

For those who hadn’t seen earlier we recently added our new apelike friend to ARK Universe! Including a little spotlight of what this new strange creature is capable of.

The Gigantopithecus Fibrarator is a strange creature. It is usually quite passive, but it has a very short temper when it comes to it’s personal space. Once, another creature gets close, this gentle giant quickly becomes a rampaging beast! It can be tamed via careful, non-violent feeding without raising its aggression, when domesticated the hairy-apelike creature can don a helmet on it’s head and ride it’s survivor on it’s shoulders to utilize its tremendous strength and throw them over enemy barricades and walls!

Let us know if you enjoyed seeing content like this and we can work on producing more for you guys!
