Exoprimal may not be Capcom’s continuation of the Dino Crisis franchise that many fans hope it would be, but it should satisfy players dinosaur-slaying desire nonetheless. Exoprimal is a new Capcom IP about a group of soldiers in high-tech super-soldier armor fighting against an army of dinosaurs that fall from the sky. Yes, that is the premise of the game, and it is as ridiculous as it looks. Capcom is setting up Exoprimal as its next big third-person shooter franchise, hoping it can capture the same player base as other shooters. The game will launch soon, so players better prepare their best armor to fight off the army of dinosaurs.

A trailer for Exoprimal was revealed during Sony’s March 2022 State of Play, and no specific release date was given other than it is coming to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 sometime in 2023. Capcom wouldn’t reveal the release date trailer for the game until a full year later, on March 2023. Exoprimal will launch on July 14, and besides PlayStation, the game will also release for the Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC. The open beta for the game will become available to gamers on March 17 and last until March 19. Players can use full cross-platform matchmaking between Xbox and PlayStation.

The announcement trailer revealed that Exoprimal takes place in the year 2043, a time when raining dinosaurs are a common occurrence. It is up to a squadron of soldiers in exoskeleton suits to fight off the dinos. The type of dinosaurs showcased in the trailer includes some small theropod-like dinosaurs similar to the velociraptors from Jurassic Park, triceratops, and, of course, a T-Rex. Another trailer revealed that the raining dinos are all part of the plan of the evil AI known as Leviathan.

Even though the game has little in common with the horror-focused Dino Crisis series in terms of style and aesthetic, one of the characters in the Exoprimal trailer has a very similar appearance to the main character from Dino Crisis. Exoprimal will feature several game modes, including story missions and Player vs. Player (PvP), and it will also incorporate Co-op.
