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!

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

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.

its an amazing game but....THE NEW UPDATE KILLED IT!!!!!.once apon a time primal carnage was a legendary game with an amazing fan base and everything was good,until the next update came and destroyed the game,first of all the machette is now a sniper and all of the call of duty fanbase is raiding this game.now every lobby that i go into i run into some obnoxious kid telling me that i suck at the game because im lvl1.in the new update they added a leveling system so the pros at the game get called low lvl noobs just because we havent played this game since the update came out and were lvl1.this game used to be good and still is good but im now forced to play singleplayer until the little kids clear off.overall i dont recommend playing this game while its in this state but if it changes then i will right a new review and take this one down.bye

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.
