"Early Access players can now take their survival strategies even further with the ability to tame, train, and breed a vibrant array of alien wildlife, as well as the introduction of three new dog species. By researching Animal Taming, survivors can unlock the ability to tame animals, but beware; some species may prove hostile if not pacified correctly. Survivors will then be able to name, heal, train, play, lead, and slaughter their animals, with players able to use the new 'Ranch' activity to control taming and training priorities."

"Taming wildlife will prove fruitful for any base, with plenty of resulting resources, and some creatures even able to be trained for combat against threats. Keeping tamed animals happy and comfortable in Stranded: Alien Dawn is crucial for success – ensuring they are fed daily and housed safely is vital. Survivors can also receive boosts to relaxation and happiness as they play and bond with tamed animals. Alongside animal-taming mechanics, players can now select Hugo Delano, a new survivor, for their group as part of the update. Hugo's colorful past as a zookeeper makes him a worthwhile addition, with his ability to train almost any creature and his adept farming skills sure to prove useful for survival. The Tame and Train Update also introduces a range of additional resources, recipes, and animal statues, as well as five new Steam achievements, which survivors can gain by proving their animal husbandry skills."
