Exoprimal may not be Capcom’s continuation of the Dino Crisis franchise that many fans were hoping for, but it should satisfy players’ dinosaur-slaying desires 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 fell from the sky. Yes, that’s the premise of the game, and it’s as funny as it looks. Capcom is positioning Exoprimal as the next big third-person shooter franchise, hoping it will capture the same player base as other shooters. The game will be launched soon, so players better prepare their best armor to fight the army of dinosaurs.
