TRAVEL THE UNKNOWN

Hit the road to search for fossils of extinct species, that once ruled the Earth. Explore different US States, force your way through mud, water, and various environmental hazards, explore vast terrain, destroy rocks or bodies of water to reach your prize. Use many tools, such as chainsaw, shovel or pickaxe to achieve your goal.

EXPLORE EXCAVATION AREA

Collecting fossils is not that easy. Especially if you have to dig it by yourself. Use your georadar to search for clues and discover the remains of many extinct species, adding up to the insight about the Earth's distant past. If you think that all you have to do is to find right area, then you are wrong! It's just a beginning. Use your tools to get rid of obstacles, dig bones with shovel and pickaxe. But... watch out! They are very fragile.

PREPARE DELICATE FOSSILS

Precious fossil is very delicate - you need to carefully clean the bones, making sure that nothing will get damaged before you can finally assemble a complete prehistoric skeleton. Manage your know-how, using the portable in-game tablet and become the world-renown paleontologist.

  • 252 unique bones

  • Utahraptor statue for Painting Room (from Designer DLC)
