Vroegtijdige toegang

Ontvang onmiddellijke toegang en begin met spelen; raak betrokken bij dit spel terwijl het zich ontwikkelt.

Opmerking: Deze game in vroegtijdige toegang kan mogelijk erg veranderen gedurende het ontwikkelingsproces. Als je niet staat te springen om deze game in de huidige staat te spelen, kun je misschien beter wachten tot de ontwikkeling van de game is gevorderd. Meer informatie

Wat de ontwikkelaars zeggen:

Waarom vroegtijdige toegang?

“We are developing this game together with our community. Your feedback, your critics, your suggestions are what drives this game forward. In the last weeks this game had over 11 patches and more than 17 hot-fixes (July 2014). Our community helps us to make the game we all want to have. This is what Early Access is truely about - making a game together with the community.”

Hoe lang blijft deze game in vroegtijdige toegang?

“We are aiming for an early access phase not longer than 6 months. It's planned to reach Beta-State in October 2014, however the game will stay in the alpha state until you guys think it's ready.”

Hoe gaat de volledige versie verschillen van de versie met vroegtijdige toegang?

“The full version will be based on players input from the early access phase. Right now we designed and build the game-mechanics how we think it would be cool - but maybe it isn't or the community comes up with some amazing feature requests like they already did in the past.

The full version will also have a turret system, different biomes, more wildlife and community-approved game-mechanics.”

Wat is de huidige staat van de versie met vroegtijdige toegang?

“While the game runs stable and contains already a lot of polished game-play this game is still unfinished so there might be still bugs, annoyances, unfinished game-mechanics, unbalanced weapons/structures, unbalanced dinosaurs, GUI bugs, servers might go up and down a lot, multiple patches in a single day. We are actively working on the game and we will supply different types of servers so you can play without our work interfering with your game-play but please do not expect a perfect game. We also tend to change things, try out mechanics, remove them again - if you are not enjoying forging the game just wait, in a few months this game will come out.”

Zal de game anders geprijsd worden tijdens en na vroegtijdige toegang?

“Yes! Once the game is fully released the price will represent the final state of the game. Right now we are selling this game at a discounted price, without any pay-to-win scheme, without a monthly subscription.”

Hoe zijn jullie van plan de community te betrekken in het ontwikkelproces?

“We would like to fully integrate our community into the development process. Important game-play/game-mechanics decisions should be community-based. Also on future updates we would like to know what the community prefers us to work on.”

Update 14 - You naughty Egg-Thiefs! (AI & PvP Patch)

In this patch Beasts of Prey receives a fully reworked AI for the dinosaurs and some additional game-mechanics for PvP. The AI has been upgraded to make the game-world more immerse and fun, Dinosaurs started to hunt in packs, roam through the game-world and no longer run into each other or run through your walls.

Additionally to these upgrades the flag system has been changed to a capture & hold system. You can now capture land by capturing other players land. When you capture a flag all buildings in it's area will be yours. Doors, Gates, Tents and Turrets will be yours, personal items like the metal safe & beds will not change ownership but can be destroyed or picked up (just like before). You can now also destroy foundations with flags again - so in the end it's your choice to either conquer an outpost or destroying it!

Changes:
- Improved overall performance yet again.
- Reworked AI to be aware of structures & buildings.
- Reworked AI to be aware of other NPCs.
- Added new pathing to AI.
- The island slightly changed, some terrain has been altered to improve the overall quality of the game-world.
- Added some additional textures to the game-world.
- Added parallax effects on terrain shader.
- Added more roaming birds.
- Adjusted total amount of trees to slightly improve performance and game-world design.
- RADAR now shows different icons for friendly and hostile players.
- RADAR now shows dinosaurs.
- RADAR now shows resources on the map.
- RADAR now shows flags on the map.
- Flags can now be captured. All structures in it's area will change ownership with the exception of the metal safe.
- Based on your skills you can only build a maximum of 5 flags in an area, however you can have more than 5 flags by capturing other players outposts.
- Skills Expert Builder 1 and Expert Builder 2 are now working as intended.
- Eggs are more rare.
- Dinosaurs will remain much longer in the game-world. Even after you stole the egg.
- The Spinosaurus has been (re-)added to the game.
- Fixed loot-drops on dinosaurs. After killing the inventory should open once you are close to its head.

Update Series 13.2 - 13.7 (Mini-Patches)

During the last 3 days we released a bunch of smaller patches to solve the issues players were reporting. Someone hinted out that not everyone reads the forums so here are the patch-notes of the last 5 mini-patches we released :

- Fixed a bug where sometimes structures were not loaded completely under certain circumstances.
- Fixed a crash issue.
- Fixed invisible players bug.
- Fixed typo in login scene.
- Fixed FPS Counter (use F8 to see current FPS).
- Fixed cage issue with disappearing dinosaurs.
- Improved network-caching to load objects faster so structures will no longer spawn on top of you in crowded areas.
- Improved FPS performance.
- Improved network-performance.
- Some items had their visual reduced slightly. (Walls/Foundations received a simpler shader to improve performance for example)
- Fixed broken foundations/walls & doors.

With performance being fixed we'll now focus on the dinosaurs AI again. Throughout the next days more smaller patches will be released based on your feedback. Please always report your issues to the forums.

We'll hope with these fixes the game is more enjoyable for everyone. Have a nice weekend!

This game has alot of potential! It is already strangely addictive, can only get better in the future! Be aware of the fact it's still early acces, it's far from perfect but with a very dedicated Dev team BoP will eventuelly reach perfection. The dev's are on the job and very communicative! If you want to a part of the creation and polishing of BoP buy it, if you expect an already polished then I'm not sure if that would be a wise choice.

I know this game back in the old days when they had the first trailer.

The game needs a lot of work and is difficult to understand.

The game looks amazing if you put it on max settings but its not realistic.

The game is colorfull and looks really nice and can be much fun, but i cant say if it will be fun for you, the person who reads this.

I wont say anything about buying this... no (yes) or (no) because they released this game to soon.
From what i have seen... sure its a funny game but the video here on (steam) is Prototype, not the game you will play.

Its a funny game hehe sure it is but...totally different then other dino games.
I say take a gamble. :)

Beasts of Prey gives me that feeling that I got as a child, when I saw dinosaurs for the first time in Jurrasic Park.
Not being able to ever dinosaurs in real life, BoP is a very close resemblance of what I would experience if we could.

Although the game is still in early access, I have great hopes for the game. With a nice survival system, a rewarding gathering and building experience, and what looks to be a long road of game experience ahead, which keeps being interesting, this game brings me what I need in a survival game. Also, you will not likely forget that first time you see your favorite dinosaurs up close in this game.

I am very curious to see what the future brings for this game.

THIS REVIEW IS HIGHLY OUTDATED. THE PRICE HAS DROPPED ON THE GAME AND IT IS WELL WORTH IT TO BUY IT NOW WITH A PVE SERVER THEY HAVE IMPLEMENTED TO MY KNOWLEDGE. I WILL NOT BE UPDATING THIS ANY MORE.


Release Day Review:

Overview:
Beasts of Prey is an Alpha game. This means that there are heavily unfinished features and it is a bare-bones game. Personally I like my games to be full-fledged and ready to roll, but this dev team seems very committed to their game and ready to rock.

The game is a heavy survival-island type game. You can build custom structures or build a pre-built structure for the cost of some lumber that counts as a starter home. You can make all sorts of weapons provided you have the materials for the blueprints and the weapon parts (I.E. Pistol Barrel, Pistol Grip, etc).

And you're essentially supposed to be surviving other players and Dinosaurs. Dinosaurs as of the time of this review are disabled due to some difficulties with a lot of people having lag with them around. Also they tend to run a lot faster than the player so it was kind of OP even though I never really had a problem with it.

Gameplay:
The gameplay is pretty nice, the crafting is a bit plain but straightforward. It tells you the materials you need and unless you can't read, you should be able to craft everything provided you can find a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ rock. Rocks are the things that contain ores which you obviously need (Iron, magnesium, etc) and a lot of the time it's pretty ridiculous except at night when people aren't on. I think most of the playerbase is in the United States but I'm not sure, so I would go by those times.

Nevertheless it's not hard to get wood, only ores/rock because you really have to compete with other people for it.

As for the Dinosaurs, they do mass amounts of damage to you. Most are only there for looks (anyone who knows dinosaurs means this is the herbivores) and the only ones that really come after you are the carnivores. However there have been some issues with invisible dinosaurs so it's kinda sucked.

So:

Crafting
Dinosaurs
Survival

PvP is another factor in this game and one I wish wasn't there. I'm not sure why all these survival games aren't going co-op survival rather than 'HEY LET'S GIVE EVERYONE THE OPPORTUNITY TO ♥♥♥♥ WITH EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING IN THEIR HOMES'. I really like the 7 Days to Die servers that are PvE only but I don't have money to start a server for this game that's PvE only, unfortunately.

It's pretty ridiculous on the community server, so much so that I started a private server just to play bymyself to advance through the tech tree. I barely got a bed out before a few people had guns and were at a major advantage over everyone else, kinda ridiculous IMO but whatever. Alpha, alpha, alpha.

Also on the topic of PvP, a friend was highly interested in Rust so he's been playing it since release and he said Rust had a big problem with people being able to take stuff through walls. And yes, that is indeed a problem in this game also. I had my bed stolen, my workbench stolen and I'm sure if they could have taken my furnace, they would have taken that too.

Crafting
Dinosaurs
Survival Aspect
PvP
Servers

Yeah that's pretty much it. For an Alpha game though it looks gorgeous (Please no comparisons to The Forest, it's a single player game for gods' sakes, just shut up) and the dinosaurs, weapons, structures are just so detailed it's marvelous.

However it does have its fair share of bugs and you WILL be frustrated with the game after a few hours if you play on the Community server, so just be prepared to be griefed and friendless for quite some time.

6/10 only because... (otherwise it would be 7/10)...

The pricing is stupid, would recommend for the stage that it's in to wait until the price drops/a sale. These literally UNFINISHED games are getting higher priced than normal single player indie games that wait until they're fully finished before release. It's ridiculous.


THIS REVIEW IS HIGHLY OUTDATED. THE PRICE HAS DROPPED ON THE GAME AND IT IS WELL WORTH IT TO BUY IT NOW WITH A PVE SERVER THEY HAVE IMPLEMENTED TO MY KNOWLEDGE. I WILL NOT BE UPDATING THIS ANY MORE.
