Path of Titans

If you’ve played the massive survival hit Ark: Survival Evolved, you’ve probably had a good amount of fun facing off against — or taming and siding with — a host of ferocious dinosaurs. But what if you could actually play as the dinosaurs? That’s the question that Path of Titans is attempting to answer.

In Path of Titans, you step into the role of a dino, which begins its life as an egg and grows into a towering titan over time. There are more than 30 species of dinosaur in the game, and you can unlock new skins and such to customize your favorites as you complete various tasks in the world.

The game is being described as an MMO, but I don’t think that term is completely accurate here. Path of Titans will have up-to-200-player lobbies, where you can cooperate with friends and strangers in this prehistoric world.

Path of Titans

Here is a list of features that comes from today’s press release:

  • Massively Multiplayer: The huge, dynamic environment is filled with A.I. critters, quest zones, and caves set for you to create a home base, on servers for up to 200 players. Team up with players to take on challenges together or join friends in a herd for even larger, coordinated group efforts to take on the big in-game events! Or go it alone and carve your own path, how you survive is completely up to you.
  • Character Customization: Unlock skins and alternate species of each dinosaur genus. Change the individual colours of your dinosaur character and apply alternate subtle markings. Choose between multiple species of your favorite dinosaur, each with unique visual characteristics. Create a creature unique to you!
  • Questing & Events: Complete quests that encourage and reward immersive cooperation and unlock achievements to collect exclusive in-game content. Collect materials to build nests to sleep in, hunt various rare critters and PvP dinosaurs, forage for hidden plants, or defend your herd members, all while enduring natural world events that will shape the landscape around you. 
  • Attributes & Abilities: Spend points to alter your abilities and attacks to tailor your character to your preferred play style. Swap out one of your bite attacks for a claw attack or a tail swipe, or reduce your HP and damage in exchange for more stamina and faster movement. 
  • Swimming, Diving & Fishing: Submerge fully underwater and hunt for AI fish and avoid being chomped by prehistoric crocodiles. Lurk just under the surface and lunge out of the water to surprise unsuspecting prey. Traverse the complex redwood river system and explore the depths of the swampy lakes. Make the most of your environment to survive as a semi-aquatic hunter! Coming soon is Gondwa, a map of islands with extensive inland waterways, lagoons and shoreline inlets. Home to your creatures of the air, land and water!
  • Modding: Community is important to any game, and the Path of Titans team recognizes the amount of passion and talent dinosaur enthusiasts have. Our game has powerful modding tools that will be free for anyone to download and use. With extensive documentation to guide modders, anyone will be able to upload their content for cross-platform cross-play gamers to enjoy.

If you’re itching to get into Path of Titans, you won’t have to wait too long. The game is set to enter its closed beta phase at some point over the summer, and there is currently a demo build for early purchasers to play. The closed beta is promising cross-platform play across PC, Mac, Linux, and Android, with consoles hopefully entering the mix at some point in the future. Of course, it’s only available in the Alderon Games Launcher; there are no plans for a Steam release.
