While this game isn’t Dino Crisis, Capcom is still delivering a dinosaur-packed action game–currently be developed specifically for PlayStation users. Exoprimal puts your characters into a technologically advanced mechanized (or mech) battle suit. This is so you can take on the, what appears to be, extra-dimensional dinosaurs that number in thousands, possibly tens of thousands of them literally falling from dimensional orbs sky-high, and above human cities. Capcom announced the new game during Sony’s March State of Play livestream.
The trailer can be seen below, which shows some aspects of online gameplay. You’ll be playing the “exofighter”, a pilot specialized in using a mechanized suit to take on this massive dinosaur threat. The trailer shows five different exosuits, each having a different combat role. You can change exosuits any time during a mission, making it possible to change tactics as you go or if the situation abruptly evolves.
According to the game’s website, expect to fight against these dinosaur menaces as a cooperative team, while also facing against other teams of human players. “Dino Survival, the main game mode, sees two teams of five players compete in a variety of PvE and PvP missions. Players will be transported to the scene of the latest dinosaur outbreak and follow Leviathan’s guidance to complete objectives, the website states. The team that completes the mission first will emerge victorious. Whether players are engaging the other team directly, or fighting alongside them against a common enemy, the aim is to accomplish objectives as quickly as possible.”
The website also shows that Exosuits fall into three combat roles: assault, tank, and support. Four of the suits featured in the trailer are greatly detailed on the site. The orange Deadeye is east-to-use and all-purpose exosuit that specializes in medium to long distances. Zephyr is a quick, melee-focused exosuit that (obviously) focuses on close quarters combat. Roadblock is a heavyweight exosuit with “supreme durability.” The Witchdoctor is a support suit that specializes in “synergizing” with ally skills and attacks.
Exoprimal is headed to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in 2023.
