The Platyhystrix, new Ceratosaurus animations, and sleeping!
Path of Titans is an MMO dinosaur video game being developed for home computers and mobile devices. Play as one of 10 core dinosaurs in a rich ecosystem filled with complex AI creatures and up to 200 other human players. Explore an environment filled with natural events, all while avoiding death and augmenting your dinosaur to suit your play style.
While the initial goal of Path of Titans is to provide a framework for dinosaur enthusiasts to roleplay as their favorite prehistoric beasts, we will also provide powerful modding tools to help you shape the future of our world into your own dinosaur adventure. We will continue adding new content as well including new creatures, skins, maps, and ongoing support for the aforementioned modding tools.
A huge dynamic environment filled with AI dinosaurs and creatures, in addition to up to 200 players per server. Group up with players to take on challenges together or join a persistent clan 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.
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. With realistic colour selections and natural skins, you can choose brighter colors to stand out from your pack or utilize camouflage to blend in with your surrounding environment. Create a character unique to you!
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 rare dinosaurs, forage for hidden plants, or defend your herd members, all while enduring natural world events that will shape the landscape around you. Watch out for rare, difficult world events that occur dynamically on servers that will reward rare skins and unlockable content.
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. Each dinosaur type will play on unique strengths and weaknesses, and no single species will clearly outmatch the other, no matter how long each character has been alive.
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!
Community is important to any game, and the Path of Titans team recognizes the amount of passion and talent dinosaur enthusiasts have. A staple of our game will be our powerful modding tools that will be free for anyone to download and learn to use. With extensive documentation and help to guide modders, anyone will be able to download our dev kit and begin creating.
Our mod deployment backend allows users to upload their content to our servers to be distributed to other players and will be automatically patched with each update.
Path of Titans will be available to play on many devices and operating systems. We currently support Windows (7, 8.1, and 10), MacOS (Mojave and later), Linux (Tested on Ubuntu / Debian Based OS), Android (Must support Vulkan), and iOS (iOS12 and higher, and iPhone 6S or higher). We are currently looking into supporting consoles as well. All will be able to connect and play on the same servers, so you can play with your friends no matter where they are or what their gaming device might be!
