Today, Lukewarm Media released their class-based dinosaur shooter, Primal Carnage, online.
The game centers on combat between the humans and the dinosaurs across five maps. Players have the ability to play as either side, with each human class having its own unique weapons, and each dinosaur type having its own abilities, related to their raw attributes (teeth and claws, essentially.)
On the human side of things are the sharpshooting Scientist, the heavy-hitting Commando, the survivalist Pathfinder, the self-explanatory Trapper, and the always necessary Pyromaniac.
Players on the dinosaur team will be able to use the swift Raptor, the sneaky Dilophosaurus, the flying Pteranodon, the beast-mode Carnotaurus, and of course, the iconic Tyrannosaurus.
The dinosaurs are stronger and faster than their human competitors, but the dinosaurs have to be close in order to attack, so the humans must work together, or keep their distance, if they are to survive against their prehistoric rivals.
Primal Carnage takes place on an island where science experiments have gone wrong, and dinosaurs now roam free.
Currently, Team Deathmatch is the only multiplayer mode available, but Lukewarm Media promises the additions of more, over time.
Hopefully players get a more polished experience than what was produced for Orion: Dino Beatdown, a different dinosaur shooter, released earlier this year.
Pick up Primal Carnage on Steam, the game is available only on PC.
