Exoprimal revolves around Leviathan, a kind of AI that plays wargames with humans by unleashing hordes of dinosaurs into the world. The mystery of Leviathan will be explored in the main story mode.
The game is a team-based action title with some competitive elements. Teams will compete to complete the objectives set by Leviathan in order to win.
While there are situations where you battle enemy players directly, there are also objectives teams will need to band together to complete. The game will adjust the objectives to suit the performance of the players, with no two matches ever going the same way. You’ll earn experience and unravel the story as you progress.
Capcom then detailed the Barrage exosuit class, which is an explosive class. Vigilant is a long-range class that wields a railgun.
