Capcom just announced exoprimal, a silly looking game featuring people in metal exoskeletons taking on hordes of dinosaurs. The game was revealed during Sony’s State of Play presentation. It’s set in the near future – 2043, according to a trailer – and apparently we’ll have the technology by then to predict “dinosaur outbreaks”, where a portal opens and sends waves of dinosaurs that must be shipped. As one of my colleagues pointed out, it sounds like a Dynasty Warriors-style game, except you wear futuristic costumes and fight dinosaurs instead of people.
According to a PlayStation blog post, the game is all about co-op multiplayer. “Always outnumbered by their enemies, Exofighter teams will need to coordinate and select a strategic combination of suits to overcome obstacles,” Capcom’s Kellen Haney said in the blog post.
Here’s how Main Mode will work, according to a press release:
In the game’s main mode, Dino Survival, teams battle each other against countless dinosaurs while racing to complete missions ahead of rival teams in 5v5 matches. A dynamic mix of objectives keeps players on their toes and ensures that every game is different from the last. Exocombatants will need to stay on their toes as hunts turn into deliveries of valuable cargo or desperate last stand against relentless onslaught. Opposing teams even have the ability to tackle opponents head-on and hinder their progress.
It won’t be a PlayStation-exclusive game, though – the press release says that exoprimal will be available on PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC via Steam when it launches in 2023.
