Earlier this week, we wrote about a game called Maneater where players take on the role of a shark. Now we have an MMO in development by Alderon Games called Path of Titans where players take on the role of a dinosaur. Players become one of ten "core dinosaurs in a rich ecosystem filled with complex AI creatures and up to 200 other human players" who are also presumably dinosaurs as well.
The goal, according to the Path of Titans website, is to allow "dinosaur enthusiasts to roleplay as their favorite prehistoric beasts". In addition, players will be able to create their own dino-adventures through the modding tools developers will provide at launch.
Core mechanics include:
- massively multiplayer
- character customization
- questing and events
- attributes and abilities
- swimming, diving, and fishing
- cross platform play between PC and mobile devices
The development team has been actively writing blog posts since the game's announcement earlier this year.
Right from the beginning we’ve been interested in extensive character customization. Because characters will be permanent in Path of Titans, it's very easy to expect many people will become attached to their dinosaur. The ability to change skins and models of your dinosaur to make the player feel unique and stand out from a crowd was very important to us. It was with this in mind that the very first dinosaur was modelled, the Allosaurus. The Allosaurus will be a great well-rounded carnivore for players who love the iconic look of this dinosaur and enjoy playing in small packs. It might not be the strongest, fastest, or most agile, but a group of Allosaurs shouldn't ever be taken lightly.
