And ARK: Survival Evolved is just getting better and better with every passing second. The next gigantic prehistoric creature to make it’s way into the game is that of the gigantic Kangaroo, or more specifically the Procoptodon.

It’s a mammalian invasion at ARK: Survival Evolved

The new monstrous creatures are part of a new update that’s out now, and represents a further push to get a wider variety of animals into the kingdom that should be representative of species that might have been alive during the era that some of the dinosaurs were. In case you were curious, this magnificent beast actually only grew to about 2m tall, so the developer has taken some liberties. But alas, you can now ride a marsupial.
