Exoprimal is a far cry from the survival horror/action-adventure classic Dino Crisis. In an age where classic franchises are getting face lifts and new instalments, Exoprimal seems to stick out like a sore thumb.
Let’s make sense of Capcoms creative direction with everything we know about Exoprimal:
Exoprimal is an online-only team-based, third-person action game. Players utilise various exosuits to fight overwhelming swarms of dinosaurs.
Humanity is being subjected to random dinosaur outbreaks in 2040, a crisis that could wipe out mankind. Luckily, the Aibius corporation has created a hyper-advanced AI called Leviathan that can predict the location of future outbreaks.
They’ve also created a plethora of exosuits, operated by exofighter pilots to help quell the dinosaur threat. It’s a very loose plot to explain why dinosaurs are falling out of black holes, but it’s the best we’ve got for now.
Originally thought to be PvE, Exoprimal has two teams fighting swarms of dinosaurs whilst also trying to take out the opposition. The confirmed modes so far are:
– Dinosaur Cull – Take out dinosaur swarms
– VTOL Defence – Holding a position
– Data Key Security
– Energy Taker
– Omega Charge – Use massive hammers
Exoprimal will release on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC in 2023.
