Steam’s Holiday Sale has started with over 10070 titles at a discounted price. We are happy to have The Isle join the sale. The Isle can be bought from the Steam Store for 15% off until January 4th.

Introducing the terrifying claws of the Therizinosaurus. The Isle’s Therizinosaurus comes equipped with huge claws, a long neck, and a bushy tail. These massive claws could reach just shy of 1 meter in length, the longest from any known animal. You can expect this massive Therizinosauridae to rough up any threat – including the Tyrannosaurus Rex – if played correctly.

The Therizinosaurs is the first addition to playable dinosaurs, taking it’s place beside the Tyrannosaurus Rex, Austroraptor, Shantungosaurus, Puertasaurus, Gallimimus, and Carnotaurus.

All dinosaurs modeled by Vlad Konstantinov, check his Deviantart page below.

The Isle is an immense undertaking by a group of veteran developers that have collectively worked on three previous dinosaur games. We don’t want to create ‘just another survival sandbox’ or ‘just another dinosaur game’; we want to be ‘the’ dinosaur game. Though the initial core of the game will be implemented upon release, this is a platform sandbox being developed for the community that will help shape The Isle into supporting any game-type imaginable. This goes from classic team deathmatch integration to dramatic park tycoon creation, accurate dinosaur ecosystem simulations, and thrilling survival combat. We believe we can create the basis and modding content for every player’s dream that was or is a dinosaur game. After all, ‘creation is an act of sheer will.’
