Watch an Exoprimal team take control of a dinosaur and invade the other team in an extended game

Shortly after Capcom released a new trailer for exoprimal At its Showcase event earlier this week, the publisher quietly released extended gameplay footage without all the jaggies and interstitials.

The video is nearly 16 minutes long and shows a full match of Dino Survival, the game’s main mode where two teams of five compete to kill dinosaurs and accomplish objectives as quickly as possible.

Although the video is sadly limited to just 1080p-60fps, it offers a much better look at the mechanics and flow of the match. One of the main points of criticism the game faced actually has less to do with the content and more to do with the video capture itself.

Exoprimal is a game about battling numerous dinosaurs crammed into what is essentially one long corridor. The effects and visual style don’t work very well with YouTube’s compression, leading to a muddy presentation that robs the game of its charm.

However, this new video is long enough for you to get a decent look at Exoprimal’s classes and the different objectives within the mode. Classes in particular are the highlight of the show, with clear distinctions between melee, ranged, tank, and healer.

We even see the player dismount and switch classes between targets, which should make it easier to adapt to the situation, not to mention trying out the different classes. The action looks flashy and satisfying, which is always nice to see.

There are definitely some parallels between Exoprimal and Destiny 2’s Gambit mode. Towards the end, for example, teams have the chance to invade the opposing team by taking control of a dinosaur and slowing their objective’s progress.

While I’d still like to see a mode without the PvP aspect, the footage does a better job of showing the different mechanics in action than the original launch video. Many of these, of course, will be tested by players with the closed network test, which does not yet have a start date.

Exoprimal is coming to PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X sometime in 2023.
