What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Primal Carnage: Onslaught is an early product that we want to bring to market to get feedback from you, the player. We plan on introducing a range of new scenarios, environments and mechanics to explore what VR is truly capable of.

We also plan on using Primal Carnage: Onslaught to explore and experiment with new technologies, such as haptic feedback, alternative controllers, and even VR technologies we haven't imagined yet. We feel like we are barely scratching the surface of what VR is capable of, and we want Primal Carnage: Onslaught to be a product that can explore the depth and breadth of what VR can offer.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan for the game to be in Early Access for around 3 months. We will continue to expand the project and add new features after the Early Access release - leaving Early Access is just the beginning for Primal Carnage: Onslaught!”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of Primal Carnage: Onslaught will contain a broader range of scenarios, weapons and mechanics. At its core, the game will be a single-player VR experience, starting with wave-based survival mechanics. However we plan on potentially expanding into some more complex scenarios and mechanics, such as protecting fellow AI who are supporting you in your goals, and even potentially co-op experiences. Some of this content will be made available for free for Early Access adopters, and some may be paid DLC.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version of the game currently features 2 maps, combative dinosaur AI with a range of enemy types, fully interactive weapon mechanics and Steam integration with achievements & leaderboards.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price of the game will remain the same after Early Access, however future content may be released as paid DLC.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

““We plan on being transparent with our development processes through our social media channels, Steam forums and official Primal Carnage channels. We love the feedback from players for how they think the game can improve, what sort of features we can explore and the types of new mechanics we can introduce in VR. We're making this game for you, so please let us know your thoughts!””

Update 0.5 - Challenge Yourself!

Today we're releasing Update 0.5 for Primal Carnage: Onslaught!

Introducing Challenges!
In this update we are adding a new way of playing the game - Challenges! Challenges have various tweaks to the standard gameplay, ranging from changing the items you can purchase, to larger changes such as "One Shot, One Kill" guns and "Melee-Only" challenges. Each challenge has three ranks for you to try and achieve, earning you points to unlock more difficult challenges. Global leaderboards are maintained for each challenge so you are able to compete against yourself, your friends and other players for that top spot.

In adding this feature our goal is to add variety to the game and give players some new, interesting and challenging ways to play. Some of our most enjoyable moments playing this game have happened while playing, testing and designing these challenges.

So far there are 13 challenges across 2 maps. Challenges are the type of content that we aim to expand on in the future, as they allow us to introduce weapons and mechanics that would break the balance of the main game.
We're very interested in the feedback of all players on the challenges we have included in this release. If you have any ideas for challenges, please let us know!

Improved Throwing
Throwing in VR is hard. Things like tracking precision and a lack of weight are some factors that can contribute to a less than satisfactory experience when throwing objects in VR. We were unhappy with initial implementation that let the physics engine do a lot of the heavy lifting, so in this update we've changed how throwing mechanics work. Our goal with this update was a smoother outcome and removing the weird extremes of throwing, but we feel like we've achieved a better throwing experience overall! We're very happy with the results of our endeavour and we hope you are too.

New Melee Weapons
For some of the new challenges we have added a series of new melee weapons including all your favourites from a wrench to a baseball bat! As part of this update we also added the ability to throw your melee weapons and damage your foes. The improvements we made to the throwing really allowed us to get a bit more out of our melee weapons as you are now able to throw objects with a lot more precision. We will be looking at adding and improving melee weapons further in the future.

General Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where the grenade launcher had to be overlapping the players hand to be picked up
  • Removed reload hint from weapons that couldn't be reloaded
  • Made some improvements to the dinosaur death notifications
  • Added a scoreboard to the maps
  • Better texture streaming should improved level loading experience
