Beasts of Prey is a survival sandbox game. Danger lurks everywhere and will make your struggle for survival tough. Carnivorous beasts may be lying in wait behind every tree and waiting to make you their prey.
You are starting out without anything but your combat knife and you'll have to regain access to modern technologies through gathering resources, crafting items, building structures like houses, defenses, factories and by conquering and defending resource hotspots. You can build outposts & cities, conquer them - or destroy them. Whatever is on your agenda how you want to play in the sandbox.
Create an empire, forge alliances, defend or conquer valueable resource spots. All your actions have an impact in this dynamic growing game-world, your actions matter – you can help a fellow player who is attacked by dinosaurs, or use him for targeting practise, steal his belongings. But remember, it's a single sandbox, all your actions have a meaning and you have to face the consequences of what you are doing.
The game is heavily influenced by our community. Make suggestions on the the forums, give us your feedback! During the last 6 months (November 2014) the game received multiple make-overs, more than 17 major updates and over 50 smaller patches.
I like to give you an update about what's going on with Beasts of Prey now and where we are heading. As you know the movie "Jurassic World" is being released in Summer this year and i like to attract more people to Beasts of Prey by giving the game a better look and feel that is directed towards that movie.
For that I'm very happy to announce that I have hired the person behind Jurassic Park Aftermath who is now working to create a new and stunning island similar to his already created world for his hobby project. For those who don't know what I'm talking about please check out his work here :

In addition i took the results of the poll to Vlad, he is currently busy finishing off some work but will start working on the Stegosaurus and Pachy after that.
I finally found a very good animator, who has experience in making animations for AAA games like Borderlands, SW KOTOR - with more than 15 years of experience - so our Ankylosaurus is currently getting animated, i will have the model ready for the game in about a week, once it's ready I'll start implementing it.
Currently i'm working on upgrading the engine to the latest unity version, this should make the game and servers more stable again and also reduce memory usage. I'm also working on bug fixes, investigating the bug you reported about structures sometimes vanishing.
So within the next month we will upgrade the game to the latest engine, solve the remaining game-play/server issues, implement the Ankylosaurus and replace the Spinosaurus model. In the following months the game-world will be replaced with a larger world and 2 more dinosaurs will be added to the game. I will also work on more armor parts and improvements of structures (damage on top of palisades, land-mines etc.)
