During today's PlayStation State of Play we got our first look at a bit of brand new IP from Capcom. Called Exoprimal it's a competitive co-op action game where you don Exosuits and fight dinosuars in the Year 2043, with each suit presenting a role like tank or "the fast speedy damage dealer".
And sure, it's not the Dino Crisis reboot fans have been asking for - but in a way it is kind of like Dino Crisis 3000. Sort of. Here's the announcement trailer, which looks impressive.
The year is 2043. For reasons unknown, mysterious vortexes have been opening up, unleashing endless swarms of dinosaurs upon the modern world. We’re about to see a vicious fight for survival between the brave Exofighters of the near future, and ferocious creatures from the distant past who threaten to drive humanity toward extinction.
So yeah, portals appear in the future, swarms of raptors and other dinosaurs (including Triceratops and T-Rex) fall out of the sky, and you need to take care of them. Extinction-style. Two teams of five then compete to complete missions in a head-to-head style fashion, with different Exosuits offering up different abilities and roles. From a giant shield to support abilities.
"While Exofighters are little match for overwhelming numbers of vicious dinosaurs on their own, their sleek, futuristic combat suits give them the mechanized muscle to take on prehistoric swarms," writes Capcom. "Always outnumbered by their foes, Exofighter teams will need to coordinate and select a strategic combination of suits to overcome the odds. Exoprimal is focused around multiplayer co-op gameplay, with each Exosuit having a clearly defined role. Take the aptly-named Roadblock Exosuit – not only is its massive frame built like a tank, but the Roadblock’s shield can hold off hundreds of raptors to protect their comrades. Every suit is built with team-based gameplay in mind, and each suit has unique abilities and weapons that represent their distinct specializations."
Also, you'll be able to switch between different Exosuits during a mission to adapt to the situation. Very cool. Especially because the action looks very hectic and horde like.

Exoprimal is on track for a 2023 release on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC (Steam).
