ARK: Survival Evolved adds 'flying battleship dino' ahead of Steam sale

The latest dinosaur has flown into ARK: Survival Evolved and it's both a massive beast and a massive mode of transportation. Learn more about the Quetzalcoatlus and this week's Steam sale.


As players continue to trudge across the new environments introduced in last week's update, ARK: Survival Evolved is now adding to its roster of giant dinosaurs. And this time, it's time to take to the skies.

The Quetzalcoatlus is being called a 'flying battleship dino' for its massive size and its ability to hold supplies, survivors, and even other creatures. The Quetz will mostly act as a transport for players to move supplies from base to base, but can also act as the beast that it is if prompted.

The Quetz is being introduced just ahead of a mid-week Steam sale, in which ARK will run for $19.99. Those looking to pick the survival game up at this price will only have until Thursday to do so. ARK: Survival Evolved is currently on Steam Early Access.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
