Capcom Announces Dinosaur Battling Action Game Exoprimal
No, what we saw at the Sony State of Play opening was unfortunately not a new Dino Crisis game. But it was a brand new dinosaur fighting IP from Capcom called Exoprimal.
The trailer gave us a glimpse of a futuristic city. Where portals keep dropping massive piles of dinosaurs into the metro area. And it’s up to groups of futuristic soldiers called Exofighters in high-tech armor to destroy them. The disclaimer at the bottom of one section of the trailer notes that the game features online multiplayer. So you can team up with your friends and shoot hundreds of dinosaurs with futuristic weapons.
Upon closer examination in PlayStation Blog explains that Exoprimal takes place in the year 2043, when mysterious vortexes open and eject armies of dinosaurs into the modern world. Exofighters must wear exosuits to be able to fight them, with each suit having unique abilities and specializations. Players can change their costumes at any time during a mission and change their abilities and team lineups on the fly.
Exoprimal focuses on multiplayer co-op play, and teams are expected to change their costumes frequently as different dinosaurs and challenges appear in front of them. In a future update to official twitterit was revealed that Exoprimal matches would feature two teams of five players pitted against dinosaurs, with only one winner.
