Capcom’s dinosaur multiplayer shooter Exoprimal finally has a release date as well an open beta taking place next week. During the recent Capcom Spotlight showcase, the publisher announced that Exoprimal will launch on 14 July 2023 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC as well as day one on Xbox Game Pass. An open beta will kick off between 17-19 March for all platforms.
The Exoprimal open beta test will feature cross-platform matchmaking and support so players across all consoles and PC can play together. This is great news as it’s a good indication that the full game might also support cross-play, though we’ll have to wait for confirmation. Players who participate in the open beta next weekend will receive the Aibius Medal Charm to equip when the game launches in July.

Exoprimal is billed as “an online, team-based action game that pits humanity’s cutting-edge exosuit technology against history’s most ferocious beasts.” Sadly it’s not the Capcom dinosaur game that fans were hoping to hear about but the gameplay does look exciting enough to warrant some attention. The game will use a third-person perspective and features gameplay that many have described as a mix between Anthem and Devil May Cry.
In addition to the news of the game’s release and beta dates, Capcom also confirmed that Exoprimal will launch day one on Xbox Game Pass. Given that it’s an online multiplayer title, its inclusion on Game Pass will surely put more eyes on the game this July and hopefully sustain a decent player base if it’s good enough.
The story description for Exoprimal provided on Steam reads:
“The year is 2040…Sudden dinosaur outbreaks have engulfed the globe in a crisis that threatens humanity’s very existence. Yet all hope is not lost. The corporation Aibius has developed a hyper advanced AI called Leviathan that can predict the location of future outbreaks. This technology, along with Aibius’s revolutionary powered suits, or exosuits, gives humanity a fighting chance to stem the tide of the saurian swarms. Exosuit pilots, otherwise known as exofighters, are in high demand. Take the exofighter aptitude test and join the ranks of Aibius’s heroic pilots in their fight to stave off the extinction of the human race.”
Exoprimal is set to release on 14 July 2023 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC as well as Xbox Game Pass. Check out the latest trailer below.
