capcom reveal brand new ip – exoprimal

It’s a world in which futuristic armor and prehistoric beasts clash, as Capcom prepare to move forward with a brand new IP – Exoprimal.

Revealed on PlayStation’s State of Play and due to release on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC in 2023, Capcom’s Exoprimal is a team-based action affair that looks set to unleash a prehistoric blast from the past on the near future. It’ll have you suiting up in powered armor as you look to put down dinosaur invasions and save humanity from extinction. Standard stuff, eh!?

The Exofighters will look to deploy for battle in 2023, with Xbox, PlayStation and PC players all able to get involved in the action. It all takes place in 2040, a time when the planet is in crisis. You see, dinosaurs are appearing from thin air and laying waste to cities across the globe – yep, this is no Jurassic World Evolution 2 styled experience.

Threatened by history’s deadliest creatures, the world turns to the powerful Aibius Corporation and its revolutionary technology for help. It’s here where the company’s next-generation AI, Leviathan, can forecast where dinosaur outbreaks will occur, deploying Exofighters to the area, armed with state-of-the-art mechanized combat armor known as Exosuits, as these warriors represent humanity’s last hope.

Exoprimal pioneers a new multiplayer experience that is firmly rooted in co-op, albeit with a bit of a competitive edge. In the game’s main mode, Dino Survival, teams fight for every breath against countless dinosaurs while racing to complete missions before rival squads in 5v5 matches. A dynamic mix of objectives keeps players on their guard and ensures each match is different form the last. Exofighters will need to stay on their toes as hunts transition into precious cargo deliveries or desperate last stands against relentless assaults. Opposing teams are even given opportunities to tackle adversaries head-on and impede their progress.

Exoprimal is purely focused around multiplayer but a narrative is interwoven throughout the game. This will mean players can sink their teeth into the world’s rich history and colorful characters by unlocking new story threads and piecing together the mystery behind the dinosaur outbreaks.

The thing is, the Exofighters will always be outnumbered and must work together to overcome overwhelming odds. Their Exosuits come in an array of classes, each playing a distinct role in combat. Assault models like the marksman Deadeye and the melee-oriented Zephyr excel at cutting down enemy swarms. Meanwhile, tanks such as the shield-bearing Roadblock and support types like the vital Witchdoctor help keep everyone alive to fight another day. Every model is outfitted with a unique armory and special abilities. Players can even swap between Exosuits on the fly to overcome any situation, no matter how dire.

We’ll be sure to bring you all the latest on Exoprimal in the weeks and months ahead. We’re well looking forward to seeing it arrive on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC in 2023. Especially after taking in the trailers below.
