About This Game

Dinosaurs have been resurrected from extinction on a remote tropical island. Now they have escaped, and a team of elite mercenaries has been dispatched to remove the threat.
The stage is set for the ultimate battle between man and beast.

Will you hunt down human prey as a variety of legendary prehistoric creatures? Or join the mercenary team and make these bloodthirsty beasts extinct for the second time?

The real question is... can you survive?

BIGGER. BETTER. MORE.


Primal Carnage: Extinction takes the successful formula of the original game and reinvigorates it with more dinosaurs, more game modes and more maps! Also featuring improved graphics, overhauled gameplay mechanics, re-imagined levels and greater customization that lets you play your own way.

INTENSE DINO GAMEPLAY


Unleash your inner dinosaur as you take control of the deadliest predators the world has ever known. Choose from 10 unique dinosaur classes with specialized roles, from sneaky spitters to towering tyrants, all ruthless and very hungry.

SPECIALIZED HUMAN CLASSES


Survive the island as one of 5 distinct human classes, each with their own special abilities to help the team. Use a wide variety of devastating weaponry and gadgets to take down your scaly foes.

MULTIPLE MODES OF CARNAGE

  • Fight to the top of the food chain in Team Deathmatch.
  • Work together to reach rescue, or ensure the humans never leave the island in the objective-based Get to the Chopper.
  • Challenge yourself to a never-ending onslaught of AI dinos in Survival co-op.
  • Stalk the humans as an invisible raptor or band together to take it down in Hunt mode.
  • Steal eggs from dinosaur nests or protect your unhatched babies in Capture The Egg (coming soon!)

DIVERSE ENVIRONMENTS


Wage over the top prehistoric warfare in a variety of environments, ranging from lush tropical jungles, to perilous mountaintops, to abandoned labs. Some maps feature blizzards and environmental hazards such as acid pits, so guns and teeth aren't the only things to worry about.

LOOT SYSTEM


Extinction supports the Steam Economy. Obtain a variety of skins and accessories for human and dinosaur alike through the in-game store & drop system. There is now a crafting system to convert lower tier items into even more valuable cosmetics. Players can also choose to trade items on the Steam Marketplace

WORKSHOP SUPPORT


Players can now create their own maps and cosmetics for submission to the Extinction Workshop page. All items will be curated and have a chance of being officially added to Primal Carnage: Extinction!

Primal carnage: extinction
GREAT GAME really worth the money it is a little glitchy with the servers and could have a few bugs but it is one of the best games i have ever played. I would like to see another charger class but they will add that in the future. All of the dinos are in separate classes so now Overaptor and Novaraptor are kind of different. Some dinosaurs have different attacks now for example the two different flying classes have different attacks one rammes and knocks opponent of ledges and the other picks them up and drop them. A bit different to the first primal carnage game though some ability’s like pounce work differently to the first game. As well as all of this there is a big variety of skins for both dinosaur and humans like volcano Spinosaurus or snowy T-rex.

After all the updates, this game just started to be Primal Strike: Global Fortress.
This game took Stat Tracks from CS:GO
Dominations and Levels from TF2
And the only liked by me content from REAL Primal Carnage

This game sucked after latest update that gave us leveling system, Developers most likely tried to change their game, that was actually RP and Skins Simulator 2015

Highly, I do NOT recommend this simulator.

This is a fun game i recommend this game for people who like fighting and dinosaurs,
though if you don't have a strong enough computer the graphics will be horrible and you will not,
have a good gameplay especially if your trying to record it this is a warning so you don't waste your,
money when you don't have a good computer i am just saying this so you don't get disapointed when you buy,
the game and can't play it correctly i just want you and me to have a fantastic gameplay, when i bought this game i had to switch computers to play it, i'm just saying if it doesn't work on your computer thats,
probably why because your computer doesn't have enough memory or it doesn't have enough ram, its a VERY fun game and i recommend this to people who like dinosaurs but, i gave a warning, that this maynot work on your computer, it has blood and a little gore i am warning the people who don't like that, i hope you have a fun time!!!! :D

Primal Carnage: Extinction can be a fun game if you like dinosaurs, and/or action first person shooter games. Primal Carnage: Extinction (PC:E) is a multiplayer first person shooter game, where you can be human or dino. But beware of dino's can't be in first person... so if your human, its a first person shooter. ;] There is 10 different dinosaur classess, and 5 different human classess.

Dinosaur Classess:

Tyrannosaurus Rex - eats humans as primary attack, powerful tailswipe as secondary attack, roar ability: Alerts other dino's to assist. Cannot go into smaller places, a good place for humans to hide - Threat level: Extreme
Spinosaurus - eats humans as primary attack, powerful clawswipe as secondary attack, roar ability: Boosts other dino's resistence which means other dino's can take more damage. Cannot go into smaller places, a good place for humans to hide - Threat level: Extreme
Acrocanthosaurus - eats humans as primary attack, powerful stomp as secondary, roar ability: Regens nearby dinosaurs health. Cannot go into smaller places, a good place for humans to hide - Threat level: Extreme I think we need a new threat level for this guy
Novaraptor - claws humans as primary, leaps and pounces humans as secondary, roar ability: Goes into a frenzy attack mode, and can attack faster, fast . Can go into smaller places - Threat level: High
Oviraptor - claws humans as primary, leaps and pounces humans as secondary, roar ability: Can outline nearby humans so it can see where there is humans, fast . Can go into smaller places - Threat level: High
Dilophosaurus - has a poisonous bite to bite humans as primary, spits poison as secondary (real Dilophosaurus' are bigger), roar ability: Re-fills stamina. Can go into smaller places - Threat level: Low to High
Cryolophosaurus - bites humans as primary, spits acid as secondary (real Cryolophosaurus' doesn't spit acid, and is bigger), roar ability: Re-fills stamina. Can go into smaller places - Threat level: Medium
Pteranodon - pecks humans as primary, lifts humans and drops them to death as secondary, roar ability: Same as Oviraptor, but has a smaller radius. Can go into smaller places, weak on the ground - Threat level: Moderate
Tupandactylus - pecks humans as primary, flies at high speed and rams into humans as secondary, roar ability: Same as Oviraptor, but has a smaller radius. Can go into smaller places, weak on the round - Threat level: Medium
Carnotaurus - bites humans as primary, swings its horns at humans and can run into humans with it horns as secondary, roar ability: Same as Novaraptor, but attacks slower with primary. Can go into smaller places - Threat level: High


Human Classess:

Pathfinder - has 3 different kinds of shotguns as primary including: Normal shotgun, SPAS12, and a double barrel shotgun, pistol or machete as secondary, flares or tomahawks for throwables
Scientist - sniper or tranq rifle as primary, tranq dart gun or pistol as secondary, health kits or sensor mines for throwables
Commando - assault rifle or M4 carbine as primary, assault rifle has a rocket launcher feature, pistol as secondary, ammo kits or grenades for throwables
Pyro - flamesaw as primary, flamesaw has a saw feature, pistol or flaregun as secondary, molotov or impact grenades for throwables
Trapper - two pistols as primary, netgun or stun gun as secondary, dynomite or land mines as secondary.


Gamemodes:
PC:E has a lot of gamemodes including:
• TeamDeathMeatch (TDM)
• GetToTheChopper (GTTC)
• Hunt
• Survival (AI)
• CaptureTheEgg (CTE)
• FreeRoam (FR)
• DinoDeathMatch (DDM)
• RolePlay (RP)


Maps
PC:E has a LOT of maps, and those are:
(Every map can be used for FR, RP, TDM, and Hunt)
• PC-Docks (TDM)
• PC-ForgottenOutPost (TDM, CTE)
• PC-Transfer (TDM)
• PC-Contingency (TDM)
• PC-Utilitybase (TDM)
• PC-UtilitybaseSnow (TDM)
• PC-ForestChasm (TDM)
• PC-ForestChasmSnow (TDM)
• PC-TheFalls (TDM

• GTTC-Docks (GTTC)
• GTTC-TheFalls (GTTC)
• GTTC-RuthLess (GTTC)
• GTTC-RuthLessSnow (GTTC)
• GTTC-DownPour (GTTC)

• FR-Valley (FR)
• FR-Island (FR)
• FR-Seasons (FR)

• AI-VisitorCenter (AI)
• AI-WhiteForest (AI)
• AI-Geothermal (AI)


Lets talk about the game now
PC:E has very nice Graphics and it just feels so cool in FR to be a dinosaur and just roam around the forest, it makes you feel you ARE a dinosaur, and even better yet, in RP you can use an eating command so you can eat corpses. But the downpart of these features are that, nobody plays TDM, GTTC, AI, or Hunt anymore, I only see 6 TDM servers, 0 GTTC servers, 1 AI server, and 0 Hunt servers. But I strongly recommend this game if you like dinosaurs and/or action first person shooter games. I really enjoy this game, I think its worth the money to buy. You can also get different skins for the game. Common is a normal skin, uncommon is a bit more rare, rare is well a rare skin, and a legendary is an extremely rare skin. The Legendary Falcon Feathered Novaraptor, is the most expensive skin you can buy, and then comes the Legendary Steel Leopard Feathered Novaraptor. And I have 'em both ;D. But you can actually buy more expensive taunts for the game.

Let's underline a thing, at the moment of writing this review, the new update and a patch(1.6.1) have just been released.
One of the most negative things about PCE have always been the unbalanced teams when it comes to deathmatch mode: generally speaking people don't like very much playing as human, because most of the time the human team loses. So, before this update was released, people tried to avoid playing human by switching team when they were put in the human team, and this led to unbalanced matches, like 5 humans VS 10 dinos. This also caused players on the dino side to be autobalanced to the human team, even if they already played as humans in the previous round.
This update aimed at "solving" this problem. How did they "solve" the problem? By disabling team switching. This is what now happens: you play your round as human, then a new match starts and you get to play as dino, BUT people who should play as human this round leave the server, so the teams aren't balanced anymore and autobalance moves you to the human team(even if you were already human last round) and you CAN'T SWITCH BACK to the team you were even if you have the RIGHT to play on that side.
So, is the problem solved? No, not at all. I could say it's even worse than before.
The problem CAN'T be solved unless playing humans becomes as enjoyable as playing dinos, this is the real problem: playing human is a pain in the ♥♥♥. If it was enjoyable, people would on purpose choose humans, neither would they leave a server when it's their turn to be human. Do you think forcing them to play on whatever team happens to be in minority is a good choice? What a great idea.
Oh and what about the progression system? This update has implemented the progression system too. Every time you level up you get a random drop, as in CS:GO . Personally I don't like it because leveling up doesn't feel rewarding. You could get a common skin or a rare skin, it's totally random. But this is not such a big problem as the previous ones.

Primal carnage: extinction can actually be very amusing lets talk about this first:
Its a shooter dinosaurs against humans (obviously the dinosaurs dont have guns). So the idea is pretty unique

As Human: You need to get to the chopper (no meme included) or kill dinosaurs until you win. you have 5 classes each has unique abilities and weapons like: mines, netguns, snipers, flamethrowers. If you need ammo or health you need to find supply crates, wich are scattered across the maps.

As Dino: You have 10 classes like the mighty t-rex, the quick raptor or the venom spitting dilophosaurus. Your target is to kill humans until you win or dont let them get to the chopper. The special abilities use up endurance without endurance you are a sitting duck and to get health back you need to eat bodies of dead dinosaurs wich are also scattered across the whole map.

This game has microtransactions but only skins and cosmetics so nobody needs that in addition: you get drops sometimes.
Finally, i enjoyed this game pretty much but it has a low amount of servers so you got to live with that.

I hope you enjoyed this review and helped you to decide to buy or not buy this game, thank you for reading this

This game is just downright cringeworthy and beyond disappointing to a point that is not even describable.

Don't let the title fool you. Unfortunately, this game is no PvP like originally intended, it's more of an RP and skin simulator than anything. There are VERY few servers that actually engage in PvP, and it's just unbalanced like crazy, as most of the guns are just inaccurate in their damage and hitboxes, and of course not to mention most of the dinosaurs are overpowered, especially the Novaraptors with their absolutely horrific pouncing that makes it impossible for the humans to kill them. Most of the time, the dinosaurs just slaughter the humans, or they might go butthurt if you kill them with their godly legendary skin on. The developers say they will do balancing changes, but most of the time I just feel they are marginal, and that the community is just way too terrible that it just nullifies whatever balancing changes there is.

But then the community in general just doesn't care about the PvP. They care about all the various dinosaur skins and such. There is already an unnecessarily massive, and I mean massive amount of them. There's the drop system in which people lose their mind whenever they don't get what they want out of it, as in the marketplace, the skins used to be like $300+, I suspect most of those cases where those little kids just stole their parents' VISA cards to get their beloved skins. However, now it is dropped down, but some of the stuff is still quite ridiculously priced. In 95+% of the servers, which are freeroam/roleplay, if you dared try killing some of these kids, they will just either start a war with you in the chat or just spam click votekick you out of the server. If you tried to point out flaws in the game, they will get on you for that as well. The community is so horrible that you'd likely struggle in even trying to troll them.

Now, you may see that I have 2000+ hours logged in. But that was the past. And I'm not afraid to say that I used to be part of the community, and I'll admit I was skin simulating a huge amount of time. But that all happened quite a while ago, and now I can't stand this "game" anymore as this review is reflecting how I now feel about it. I would for sure sell some of those skins I have, but then that 15-day hold rule in the market, and that I'm pretty lazy to get an authenticator, and I already have money from other things anyways so it's not a priority. But if you see alot of skins in my inventory, don't take it as if I still play this excuse of a game.

Want a good dinosaur game? Either try for The Isle (although its community is somewhat crap too, but it's waaaayyyyy better than this), or wait for Saurian.

EDIT: A new update just came. Mostly consisting of load of new skins. Yeah this game is sooo not a skin simulator and is soooo a PvP competition.

Although I've stopped playing this game, it was more just me not having time to play it than me not liking it. Though there isn't too much variation between game modes, being able to play as multiple different dinosaurs and humans definitely keeps the appeal. I mainly bought the game for the sake of playing as a dinosaur, which is pretty fun for a game that isn't very expensive. Of course, playing for hours to try and get rare skins does sometimes make it frustrating, but gives you motivation to keep playing. Also my ex hates this game, but he had awful taste in games, so that means that this is probably a pretty good game.
