Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“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.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are aiming for an early access phase not longer than 6 months. However the game will stay in the alpha state until you guys think it's ready.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“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.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“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.

Update Nov/2014
In our community there are quite a few people with more than hundreds of hours playtime so we believe the game is already in a very enjoyable state.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“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.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“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.

The past 15 updates have been made based on community feedback.”

Update 21 - A New World & 40% Discount!

This update is one of the biggest Beasts of Prey has ever received. It took us quite longer as so many drastic changes involved forced us also to update/replace a lot of the games main code. With the new game-world the game also received a new UI and updated game-mechanics. A lot of code has been rewritten from scratch to improve performance and to incorporate the new UI into the game.

For new players:
Getting started in Beasts of Prey can be very hard, especially when playing on the official servers with others. It's recommended that you learn the basics of building, conquering and surviving. The basic steps are gathering some wood and stones and finding a suitable place for building. To prevent other players from stealing you should build at least 2-4 foundations and cover them with palisades. Many players figured out that having multiple levels of defense can greatly discourage raiders. You are also able to build turrets that will automatically shoot other players on sight.

To access the higher tiers of crafting you want a crafting table and later on a CNC table. The table saw can greatly reduce the grind because it will give you 3 wood planks for each wood log you turn into. Gathering stone can be tedious, so make sure you get oil pumps at some point, they allow you to produce fuel which powers mining drills that will produce both stones and ores. Fuel can be produced through the refinery, at that point you might want to add some sulfur to the refinery so it will produce plastic instead of fuel.

Important for tribes :
Since you don't have coordinates or mini maps with only a compass you can get lost quite quickly in the new world. It's recommended to get a tent up for your fellow tribe mates as soon as possible so your friends don't spawn in random locations all the time. The new map has a lot of landmarks (Vulcan, rivers, waterfalls, swamps, caves etc.) so use that to your advantage.

Changes :
- A new game-world featuring oceans, rivers, cliffs, Vulcan, swamps, waterfalls and canyons.
- Several SpeedTree(tm) Trees have been integrated into the world.
- New foliage has been added to the game-world.
- Several local sound effects have been added.
- New grass and ground textures.
- New water shaders for ocean, rivers and swamps.

- New Dinosaur Spawning Algorithm. Small Dinosaurs are now more common, the larger ones have a smaller spawning chance.
- New Inventory System based on Slots. Your personal inventory now is limited to max. 24 Slots.
- New Stone Spawn System. Instead of "chopping stone with a knife" you now can find smaller stones around the world to get started in the crafting process.
- Several smaller trees and bushes can no longer be used to gain wood-logs, stick to the bigger trees.
- Amount of grass in the world has been drastically reduced.

- When picking up smaller stones there is a 4% chance to pick-up iron ore instead. (can be increased through skills up to 12%)

- Torch removed from the game and replaced with a camp-fire that will increase your stamina recovery and heal you up slowly while standing close to it. Don't get burned.

- The compass now always shows your flag if you placed one.
- You can only have 1 flag per server.

Update 20 - The Ankylosaurus - Colin from JurassicPark:Aftermath joins!

In this patch we are introducing the Ankylosaurus. This dinosaur was previously created for the Stomping Land, we are happy about Vlad's involvement in Beasts of Prey as the quality of the models speak for them-self. To animate them we hired Kiko from Borderlands/Star Wars:The old republic to give the model some tripple AAA look and feel. The engine got updated to the latest Unity 5 version which is now officially released. In addition to that DirectX 11 is back on Windows while MAC / Linux versions now still work fine with DirectX11 features enabled on Windows Builds. Turrets in the game no longer react only on range, but will change target based on what they can "see". Also their view-range has been increased making raids much harder. To further improve this palisades now cause damage when standing on top of them.

The day/night cycle got adjusted to bring you some extra light during the night and to improve the graphics which are now based on direct light, ambient light and reflection light. The rendering-mode has been switch from forward to deferred which results in a better performance with multiple light sources around. In addition to these changes several bugs you reported have been fixed.

We are happy to announce that Colin from the Jurassic Park:Aftermath Project has joined us to create a new map for Beasts of Prey. Within the next weeks we will update you on this progress. With Vlad we already have a very talented 3D Artist, last week we talked to Robert Fabiani who also is very talented to create the Stegosaurus for us. With Vlad, Robert, Colin and Kiko on-board we have now a stunning team that is able to deliver AAA models, animations and game-worlds.

Patch Notes :
- Ankylosaurus has been added to the game.
- Updated client & server to the latest unity engine.
- Optimized client to improve performance slightly.
- Adjust day/night cycle and graphic effects.
- The night is now slightly brighter on close range but darker on the far.
- Turrets now take line of sight into account, no longer just aiming at the closest target.
- Turret range has been increased from 45m to 65m.
- Palisades now cause damage when walking/standing on them.
- Adjusted client-code to address vanishing walls/structures (Please confirm!)
- Fixed a bug in the main menu.
- Server now loads and stores data much faster.
- Fixed Fall-Damage.
- Fixed several visuals on structures.
- Fixed several animations on the dinosaurs.
- Official servers received a full wipe.

Early Access Review
This game definately has potential, however , right at this point in time i dont think i can recommend. Granted it is in alpha, so their are many bugs, glitches and un-intuative features.

Pros:
+Nice looking graphics on the world itself
+Has Dinosaurs
+Massive Potential

Cons:
-Bugs and glitches are rampant throughout
-Animations are terrible, most enemies dont even show an attack animation when they hit you 60% of the time
-Melee is also terrible, enemies will hit you from 3x the distance you can hit them
-Not enough small stones! Need to increase by 2x at least. took most of my play time to find 20. And 50% of the time they despawn before i can reach them.
-Building system, while having a fair amount of optons, is crippled. Cant place most things in most places(with flag). Should be able to place furnace in my house, the furnace chimney would look like my house chimney.
-Enemies you do manage to kill or that you see killed tend to despawn so quickly you cant loot.
-If you compare this game to other alphas, take 7 days to die for instance, which appears to have been developing for about the same time, Beasts of prey is way, way behind.
-Ranged Combat is screwed also. when you shoot xbow, bolt originates from your face not the weapon, so you have to aim at their nutsack to hit them in the chest/face.
-I could go on.

Keep in mind this is my opinion of an in-alpha early access game,

All in all, if your interested in this game, either wait a while longer for these issues to be sorted and the game in general be more polished, or get it on sale (like i did) and still wonder why you did. (other than because its dinosaurs and not your typical zombie fest)

4/10 (for now)

Early Access Review
I haven`t looked at this game in some time, and last time I was not impressed at all.

Coming back to it after several months and I have to say I am seriously not impressed with it.

Despite maxing out the graphics it still looks horrid, the world is bland, boring and unapealing, trees look totally rubbish at distance or up close, despite setting longest distance draw range things still pop up near by, grass is minimal at best, I could go on and on about the poor visuals.

Dinosaurs are supposed to be the main feature in the game, yet they are dumb, some stand around like statues doing nothing for ages, others just acting brain dead and wandering aimlessly around.

Then we get to something that wasn`t in last time I played, canibals. Dear god they are stupid too, and when you get close they somehow cause you damage from a bigger range than you need to hurt them, and yet they don`t actually seem to be doing anything at all! Just walking but somehow killing you!

Seriously I can`t see this title ever getting good, I found it horrible on release, and despite the boasts of big work done and graphic improvements I still feel it is a pile of dino poop.

Early Access Review
TL:DR: No, seriously, buy ARK when it comes out on June 2

(By the way, they are having something of a campaign on the forums to get people to write positive reviews)

This game is a disaster with many bugs from the first day still remaining almost a year later. Here's a quick example of why this game will never be any good. When H1Z! came out, the dev fell in love with it and decided many of the systems from that game should be in his. He even did a thread on it in the forum, stating all the ideas he was going to bring over. Meanwhile, all the flaws and bugs from his own game didn't seem to register with him. Instead of fixing what he had and moving forward from there, he just scatterbrained a bunch of new ideas in. Same thing happened when he went through his The Forest phase and added cannibals (who teleport and usually have no attack animation and can hit you from 10 or more feet away).

Since day 1 there have been save problems, problems with losing your inventory, problems with dinosaurs walking through structures, glitches with the crafting system, etc. These have not been addressed, but new problems, such as cannibals, etc. have been createdd.

Since almost day one, strange design decisions have been implemented. For instance, now upon entering the game, you have to collect 50 stones to make an axe (because of the things you have to craft before you can make one). This process can literally take a couple of hours because of the scarcity of stones.

And with the last update, dinosaurs have disappeared for most people. They aren't spawning. But don't worry. The dev has some personal issues to take care of and then he'll look into it.

Basically, this game started with a lot of promise, but has gotten consistently worse through EA. Just stay away from it.

I know I didnt give the game a ton of time but still. It feels like banging your head against a wall. People leave automated turrets everywhere that kill you even in the pve server. Dinos kill you before you can craft anything. Or when you do craft anything and you die you start back at your camp with nothing except what you left behind. Or if you dont have a camp yay then its random spot time! Not worth it. Too much effort and time to get anywhere in this game.

Still very early access. Looks a lot better than it did, but in many ways it's still not close to finish. I've almost given up on this game. Seriously with all the new updates I feel this game has taken a giant leap backwards.

Early Access Review
Im basing this review soley on the fact that the Devs do not reply to Tech issues or questions asked.
well for starters to build anything in this game you need stone, well i played on single player for 3 hours and found 6 pieces, you can only build an axe with this that can only cut wood.
to be able to go further you need a furness to be able to make ore for a picaxe but as you need atlest 15 or so stone this is impossible,
played in multiplayer and serevers kept crashing.
this game could be awsome would the dev listen to and answer gameplayers ideas and questions, i have messaged them several times since buying this game and had no reply,
devs if you read this review please think about the people that are buying this instead of your own pockets.
this is a good game you just need to make it unimpossible and i would have recommended this game had the devs replied to so many posts that have constantly been repeated

Early Access Review
Played for a bit, though have not tried new release. I am not much of an online player so am glad for the single player. Has some decent graphics and dynamics to it. Crafting is cool. Only things I do not like is that it is a lot like Rust where resources are far and few at times. I do not think resources respawn, so would be nice if the trees vanished after chopped so am not returning to the same trees. Some of the building seemed a bit sloppy, but it is still early access and is not that bad.
All in all, I like the game.

Early Access Review
** These are my initial thoughts on the game as it stands at this point and are in no way meant to encourage or discourage purchase **
*Also (mildly) satirical*

BoP has potential but, being an alpha, still leaves a lot to be desired. Below are a couple things I've noticed in the short time I've played.

The menus have limited options and are clunky; I would personally like a very clear cut way to set up a private game with friends as that is our (my friends and I) prefered play style over going online with a bunch of randos. If you gotta get murdered for your dino leather, etc, then it's nice to know the guy carving his initials into your spleen is someone you know and trust rather than some dorito crumb covered neckbeard in a far off basement angrily pleasuring himself to the image of your corpse.
*coughs* Anyway.....There is an annoying bug that causes your inventory to disappear until you logout then back in to the server; This seems to happen when trying to craft. i.e. I went to turn a quantity of logs into planks (like ya do) and after one log was turned into a plank said plank and all other materials and items in my inventory just... vanished. As stated, relogging will solve this problem... temporarily.... like every time I try to make a plank I have to relog. Not the best solution.
The raptors or whatever they are... the little bipedal ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s that enjoy nomming your leg... are hard to hit with your axe or knife. What I mean is that I thought simply being within arms reach and swinging would result in showing the scaley fiend whatfor, but apparently you need to do some sort of contortionist routine until you get just the right angle to hit the bugger. I would have much rather used a gun, but well.... I haven't been able to get to the stage of finding/making a gun yet, so axe it is.

Having said all that, I don't regret buying BoP. I hope this game lives up to the potential it has. I'm going to say I recommend it (there really should be a neutral option) because of the afformentioned potential and what looks to be a relatively proactive development team.

This new update, though really nice in its look, lacks much in gameplay. That is where the focus should be. I do hope the dev is paying attention to the feedbacks. Bring back the spawning rocks. Also when placing a flag in single player there is no foundation stone or chest. There is no option to create a foundation stone anymore. So to place a crafting table cant be done because the flag is sticking out of the ground and nothing can be put on it like before. So cant craft or place anything down. How can one advance when the flag stone isnt there or no way to make them. Also, where is the ore. Cant make anything without that? Spawning rates of the current raw stone is way to slow.

Early Access Review
Overview- Beast of Prey, like many others, is a survival multiplayer game. You gather wood, build structures, gather supplies, and try to survive among a land lost in time, a land filled with dinosaurs.
Gameplay- Very difficult and tedious. Personally I feel the game doesn't reward you enough, the work is too strenous to get a whole lot done. Death is a pain in the ♥♥♥, you lose all your inventory and spawn very far from where you died. I recommend building a safe and a bed as one of your top priorities. Overall fairly enjoyable.
Graphics- The game has an amazingly beautiful landscape and detail, map design is awesome and unique, now the animations are sloppy and the dinosaurs don't look natural when moving which I hope gets an upgrade soon. Despite how beautiful the game looks the dinosaurs didn't really receive as much glory as they should have and could look more natural with greater detail which I expect will be updated over time with the addition of a former Jurassic Park:Aftermath addtion worker.
Sound- Decent sounds to the dinosaurs, could use work like the animations.
Dinosaurs- Herbivores are always a nice sight to see, larger carnivores keep you at the edge of your toes, the smaller carnivores are great. Now the dinosaurs are pretty annoying when they start to chase you and will literally chase you across the whole map making it very difficult, getting a crossbow or axe would be recommended. The dinosaurs look decent but didn't get the full glory as I can feel more detail can be put into them, but I expect to see them receive a visual enchancement later on.
Overall this is a enjoyable game but has it's fair share of flaws. This game has so much potential and I hope to see great things in the future.
