As stated on an earlier occasion, we will be making modifications on creatures every other update. However, please note that there may be instances where we make some modifications in between.

We focused on the Grypolyth this time around as it is different from most creatures. With her unusual combination of healing, defense increase and swap prevention, fights between two Grypolyths could be long and uneventful.

  • Erlikospyx no longer displays the wrong ability - ‘Revenge Thwarting Impact’.
  • Boost Raid Rule title now appears in the traditional Chinese and Japanese language in a Raid.

A note on data collecting
We’d like to take a moment and thank everyone who has been participating in our numerous surveys and providing us with constructive feedback on our forums and social channels. We believe in player feedback and although changes rarely occur immediately, the very tangible data we collect, especially from our surveys, help guide us on our roadmaps and future optimizations.


Please note that this is a smaller update than usual. Rest assured that we are working hard on bringing bigger and more exciting things to upcoming updates!


Cool. Could you please stop adding new creatures and moves until you fix all the bugs in the game? There are too many creatures and moves already, making the game overwhelming to newer players. And I am not even touching the topic of the trophy system not working at all (it only makes it harder to progress).


Smaller than usual but its always nice to see new content.


good thing only one was changed and para lux here i come!

Sad to see all the new dinos not being viable yet again


Defenetly a smaler update quite disapointed with the creature changes, but more creatures i’ll always take especialy if one of them is the oviraptor

I mean the bug fixes and new creatures are nice but BRUHHHHHHH. Bruh. Just bruh. 2 months and a vacay for this.

Kinda funny all but one of the new creatures are cunnings

kinda figured this was getting released this week. the accidental leak and not changing grypo back gave it away.

I get that this is a small update, but really not impressed. Surely fixing Shores matchmaking and trophies should be a top priority?


Why would I choose this over resilient rampage? Actually make this somewhat different Ludia


This update may be small, but tia still exciting

Kinda small but good thing more are in the future, i love new creatures but FOR THE LOVE OF GOD FIX MATCHMAKING


It’s meant to be weaker
