The upcoming Capcom dinosaur shooter Exoprimal has received hours of new gameplay thanks to the recent network test held on Sunday. A surge of videos quickly surfaced online thanks to the lucky content creators who took part in the network test. However, we still don’t have a definite answer for the game’s connection to Dino Crisis.
Capcom revealed that a further two network tests for Exoprimal are planned in the coming weeks, both for the Steam version of the game only. The second test will take place on 25 July and will be available to players worldwide. This will last six hours. A third network test will then take place on 7 August and that will last 24 hours.
Capcom has continued to stress that the aim of these tests is “to find issues that can be addressed in order to improve the quality of the game.” As a result, they could not guarantee that gameplay will be smooth sailing all the time. You can sign up for one of these network tests on the game’s official website.
Exoprimal was first unveiled during PlayStation’s March State of Play showcase. Set in the year 2043, players assume the role of an Exofighter who is trying to figure out why strange vortexes are opening up around the world, causing swarms of dinosaurs to flood in.
Fans originally compared the game to BioWare’s own mech-based adventure title Anthem – especially with a strong focus on multiplayer – but judging by the network test gameplay, Exoprimal seems to be carving out its own identity in some small and interesting ways. It’s still unclear if the game is set in the same universe as Dino Crisis, at least according to many popular fan theories.
Exoprimal releases in 2023 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC. Check out some hours of gameplay from a few content creators below.
