An experiment gone wrong, the dinosaurs have been unleashed on an old military-controlled island . A team of mercenaries are dispatched to contain the threat and retake control. You and your friends, well, you’re that team. Or, in a very cool and awesome twist, you are the dinosaurs that must stop them in order to survive!
The unique bit about Primal Carnage is that it requires you to actually work together. There’s also one class on each team that is the kryptonite of a class on the other team, which means you need to depend on your friends to keep them away from you while you do the same for them. The humans see the game from the first person perspective, but the dinosaurs are third, I’m guessing because you would miss a lot of the coolness of their attacks if you were in first.
Since the game is still in development, there are few details about the story and game modes, but the basic premise is that the humans must find and hold the abandoned facilities scattered about the island, and the dinosaurs must make sure that they never even get close to them.
Is Primal Carnage sort of Jurassic Park meets Doom? Yes, yes it is. But you know what? That just makes me all the more interested. You can find out more and sign up for the Beta at http://www.primalcarnage.com/website/
