Fans of ARK: Survival Evolved will soon be coming face to face (technically knee to face) with the smallest dinosaur within the game, as the Compsognathus is set loose upon the world in Update v224. Along with this you’ll be seeing a brand new rocket turret, sea mines, a magnifying glass, persistent tribe logs and wall lamps! Not only this you’ll be getting a custom roleplay-oriented Recipe/Cooking system, where you’ll be able to design and craft your own unique food and drink recipes.
Studio Wildcard, have created Compy, a cute little dinosaur which is safe and friendly in small numbers, but asserts aggression in a large ‘Compy Gang’ pack where it displays its significant attack speed and power.
While the Compsognathus is one of the of the smallest predators on the island, ARK Survivors should pay close attention to its behavior, movements, and numbers. Alone, Compys are unafraid of humans and are neither dangerous nor aggressive which makes it an ideal pet that is curious and attentive to human endeavors and their tools. In larger packs, however, the diminutive little creature remembers its carnivorous nature. When a group of Compsognathus congregate, they intuitively transform into an aggressive, carnivorous pack. Their distress call carries quite far, rapidly alerting the tribe and its pets to danger more efficiently, which also increases the likelihood of a few Compys quickly forming into a ‘Compy Gang.’
