Ark: Survival Evolved Horse Taming: A Homage To Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild

One of the things people love the most about Ark: Survival Evolved is the existence of dinosaurs. Add to this the fact that these beasts can be tamed, allowing players to use the creatures into their advantage. Surprisingly, taming the Equus in the game is actually a nod to Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

According to Kotaku, the new update for Ark: Survival Evolved added the aforementioned horses. These are among the list of tameable creatures in the game. Apparently, the way players do the taming is quite familiar, so to speak. That's because it's similar (perhaps borrowed) from Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Or perhaps, in one way or another, Studio Wildcard did it as a homage to the aforesaid game.

In Ark: Survival Evolved, taming is one of the most popular and highly utilized features. It allows players to make friends with the dinosaurs, even with the wildest ones. The best way to do it -- albeit being ironic -- is by knocking the brains out of a beast. From there, players will just have to give it food and wait for a couple of hours. Despite being an arduous task, people are enjoying the process.

The aforementioned method though, has been upgraded or changed in Ark: Survival Evolved. For instance, players were able to tame creatures simply by standing next to it and pressing one single button. But since it's a bit boring, the experimentation went on and on. Here's when the horse taming entered the spotlight. And for anyone who's played both of the games, they know that the process are somewhat similar.

In related Ark: Survival Evolved news, a Steam update for the game has been launched by Studio Wildcard recently, as reported by GameRanx. This patch contains a new content that includes the so-called vacuum-sealed underwater bases as well as a new aquatic creature-breeding mechanic. Moreover, a new set of dinos have arrived along with a couple of the new TEK Tier structures.
