Exoprimal, the dino-blasting exo shooter, has made its debut recently. While it’s an online hero/class shooter and does not feature a story campaign in the traditional sense, Exoprimal still has a tutorial mode that introduces you to the various modes of the game. And in that process, it also offers some glimpses of its background.
Exoprimal campaign: 55 matches to complete the story
If you’re eager to unravel Exoprimal’s campaign and face off against the formidable AI named Leviathan, you’ll need to complete a total of 55 matches. Capcom, the game’s developer, estimates that this journey will take approximately 15 hours of gameplay.
To keep track of your progress, simply check the percentage completion at any time through the final UI tab in the main menu, where the database displays the interconnected cutscenes necessary to conclude the story.
Getting into the matchmaking after the Exoprimal tutorial
One might wonder how long it takes to get to the core game and start matchmaking as the game begins with a tutorial explaining all aspects of the gameplay.
The Exoprimal tutorial provides an introduction to the game world and the combatants who gear up to battle hordes of dinos. This tutorial lasts about 15 minutes, including cutscenes, and offers a quick five-minute lesson on the basics, showcasing the three classes: damage, tank, and support.
Following the tutorial, you’ll embark on a short mission with a squad of bots, setting the tone for the majority of Exoprimal’s gameplay. It’s important to note that during this mission, you won’t be able to pause or quit from the options menu. Once you’ve completed the tutorial and the short mission, the main menu of Exoprimal opens up, granting access to the core mode of Dino Survival, individual upgrade tracks, and the season pass.
Exoprimal is a live service game
Capcom’s latest dino-shooter is a live service title with multiple additions on the way and Capcom has provided a rough roadmap for these updates.
Season 1 has already begun, bringing several additions to the game. On July 28th, players can look forward to the co-op mode and Savage Gauntlet which is designed to provide a five-person late-game experience with replayability. Additionally, on August 17th, a fresh set of exosuits will be introduced offering new abilities and playstyles.
As the journey continues, Season 2 will make its debut in mid-October, with season 3 kicking off in January 2023. But the real highlight for Capcom fans lies in this season’s addition of a Street Fighter 6 collab. Players can look forward to experiencing the fusion of two beloved franchises as Robot Ryu and Guile from Street Fighter make their way into the world of Exoprimal.
