Primal Carnage Drops This Monday

In an announcement that comes as something as a surprise, mainly because it’s not giving everyone a lot of advance warning, Lukewarm Media has announced that their awesome Dinos v Humans shooter Primal Carnage will launch on Monday, October 29 for PC. That’s great news for all of you, however, as it means you don’t have to hear it’s coming out and then wait several months. Game Front’s Ben Richardson loved it, enough that I’m grabbing it as soon as it’s up.

The game is insanely cheap, coming in at $14.99 on Steam. And now, because we care, here’s the press release:

Twain Harte, California — The thunderous rumbling of prehistoric beasts is upon us — Reverb Publishing and Lukewarm Media are very happy to announce that Primal Carnage will be shipping to PCs everywhere on Monday, October 29th.

Beta testers and journalists have been getting stuck in to the vicious and quick-paced combat and in a matter of days gamers everywhere will be able to take on each other in a class-based multiplayer experience 65 million years in the making.

Primal Carnage can be pre-ordered now at the Primal Carnage website, Steam, GameStop, GamersGate, and Rain. When players pre-order they will have instant access to the beta as well as receiving an exclusive in-game feathered raptor skin to be made available when the game launches. More information on the beta can be found here.

Primal Carnage is the dinosaur title for which the world has been waiting. Dinosaurs take centre stage in this class-based online multiplayer shooter featuring combat between a team of humans brave enough to stand toe-to-toe with hordes of some of the most vicious beasts ever to walk the face of the earth. Players can choose to take on both sides of the battle as either the human classes utilising an arsenal of distinct and unique weaponry or inhabit the body of one of these menacing and powerful dinosaurs intent on leaving a trail of blood and destruction in their wake.

Primal Carnage key features include:

• Stunning visuals rendered using the Unreal Engine, players will wage war between man and beast in five large, open and varied environments

• 10 playable classes (five human, five dinosaur), each with unique skills and abilities

• Play from both first-person (human) and third-person (dinosaur) perspectives providing a contrasting gameplay experience for both teams

• Multiple achievements and an extensive DLC roadmap

Primal Carnage is a part of Reverb Publishing’s growing roster of titles, which includes the massively-successful Dungeon Defenders, the recently launched Ravaged and Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken as well as the upcoming Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller, Edge of Space, Black Knight Sword and much more.

That’s too bad.

For a second, I thought this was a new Primal Rage game, as in the dinos vs dinos.

@SupremeAllah – This game is a blast to play. Ben & I spent a lot of time messing with it at PAX East earlier this year. There’s just something insanely fun about playing as the dinos.

I had seen video and screens on this site before. It does look entertaining.

But it doesn’t match my sadness after having my hopes crushed due to there being no new Primal Rage game.
