So if you’ve read Twinfinite at all in the past two months, you’ll know that we’re quite fond of a delightful dinosaur-based indie title called Primal Carnage. Maybe you’ve heard of it? I gave it a 5/5 review due to how much fun it is? Yeah, that’s the one! The maps are great, the deathmatch gameplay is a blast… but where will the game go from here? Well, I also mentioned that Lukewarm Media would be working on some downloadable content for the game. The first round of that downloadable content will be available “later this month” and adds a new game type on top of some new dinosaur skins. Also I should mention it is 100% FREE.
The first of many planned updates, this new game mode, code named “Get to the Chopper”, includes a new mode-specific map. The new game type is rather self explanatory; the human team will travel together and make their way to a helicopter. A group of humans running towards a helicopter would be standard fare for any generic action flick, but you need to understand this situation takes place in the Primal Carnage universe, where it’s not going to be that easy. You will have to face a team of dinosaurs that would like nothing more than to devour your face as you scramble towards the safety of a chopper with your teammates.
Per Ashton Anderson, Lead Designer and founder of Lukewarm Media:
“Our goal with Primal Carnage was to make the best dinosaur video game to date, and according to the reviews, we’ve done just that – but we are FAR from done. Gamers are hungry for more content and today we reveal not only these character skin updates, but also ‘Get to the Chopper’, the first of several additional game modes that will be offered absolutely free to our players. Primal Carnage and its community are looking forward to solidifying our foothold as a stellar multiplayer experience unlike anything else on the market.”
I’m incredibly excited for this. If you couldn’t already tell I flipping adore Primal Carnage and giving me more reasons to keep playing is a no-brainer. The game claims to be the “highest reviewed dinosaur game of all time” and there is a reason for that. That reason is that the developers are dinosaur fans as much as they are video game fans. Primal Carnage only released about two weeks ago and the developers are already putting out new content. That’s ridiculous, and only proves how much love the developers have for the game.
