A Major Undertaking

The artwork that goes into Dinosaur Battlegrounds is checked and approved by real paleontologists, ensuring an extreme commitment to accurate science to provide a true look into the world of the Mesozoic Era. Take control of your chosen animal, or sit back and watch the many creatures within the world as their own stories unfold. Fight, survive, and learn along with us. as we continue to further our understanding of lost ecosystems and the organisms that lived there. A project of this importance and magnitude has never been attempted before.


Explore a living, breathing ecosystem inhabited by a menagerie of creatures, where anything you do can leave a lasting effect on your animal. Examine the theories of paleontology, and put them to test. The world of the Mesozoic is in your hands; all you have to do is survive it.  

Features

Play as a Prehistoric Creature

Step into the claws of both your favorite prehistoric animals and ones you may have never heard of before. Experience their lives from birth to death as you try to survive in the Mesozoic world. Different species will have unique playstyles reflecting their distinct anatomy and ecology. 

A LIving World

Explore a huge, open world that is constantly changing, featuring day and night cycles, seasons with dynamic weather, and natural disasters. Life around you is continuously shifting as well, with both plants and animals living their own life histories. Interact with almost everything, learning what’s safe to eat and what’s not, and how to hunt your prey. The world itself is a living organism that you must overcome and master before your own survival is assured.  

Accurate Behavior

Interact with other creatures by engaging in behaviors based on our current knowledge of these animals. Communicate with other dinosaurs using both vocalizations and body language to display your intent, whether it is friendly or otherwise. An sophisticated AI will govern the behaviors of the other animals in the environment, designed to truly explore the realities of prehistoric life and provide scientists with new tools to test hypotheses.
 

Multiplayer

Living as a dinosaur by yourself is great, but it’s even better with friends. Hunt together as a pack or hunt down each other as predator and prey. Control areas and breed your own hierarchy-driven NPC family groups, packs, and herds and battle for territory and their corresponding hunting rights. Compete for dominance, food, and mates.

Regular Updates

Our initial release will feature the Hell Creek Formation of late Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) North America, featuring such famous dinosaurs as Tyrannosaurus and Triceratops. However, we plan to expand in the future, with possible new fossil formations, bringing with them their own unique environments to explore and new species to experience. With sufficient support from our fans, anything is possible! 

Early Access

While we are still in early stages of development, we have already established an enthusiastic fanbase in both the gaming and scientific communities. We plan to release DInosaur Battlegrounds in Early Access. While the early stages will feature a smaller fraction of the total Hell Creek floral and faunal diversity, we will continue to add new species until the entire formation has been fleshed out. Features such as Multiplayer will not be present until further in development.
