Community Update #2 - Challenges!

Welcome to the second Primal Carnage community update. This week, we're focusing on a brand new feature that is coming to Primal Carnage: Extinction!

Weekly Challenges

Challenges is something we've been wanting to bring into the game for a long time. We've finally got the opportunity to introduce them as part of some broader changes coming in the next major update to the game.

Each week, players will get 3 weekly challenges to complete, such as "Kill 500 Enemies", "Win 10 TDM Games" or "Kill 100 Dinosaurs with throwable weapons". In the first iteration of challenges, we'll have pretty general, less specialized goals, however going forward we hope to introduce more specific ones to encourage players to try new classes and gameplay mechanics.

Completing a weekly challenge will award you with an item drop of Common, Uncommon, or Rare quality. During seasonal events (ie Christmas or Halloween), Challenges will also be a way of getting themed cosmetic skins.

1.8.4 Release

We're aiming to release minor update 1.8.4 this week, which includes some further GTTC map fixes, improvements to damage tick for spitter pools and fixes to some other inconsistent weapon behaviors.

Workshop Update

We'd like to remind the community to continue engaging with our workshop and content creators! We continue getting outstanding submissions to the PCE workshop. We expect to include several dozen new Community skins in our next major update, scheduled for later this year.

To vote on your favorite items, head over to the Workshop section and check them out!

As for full custom map support, we're also working hard on finalizing that feature and it should be available in our next major update.

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?


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.


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.


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.


  • 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.


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.


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


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!
