The year is 2043. Three years have passed since the vortexes—rifts in spacetime—unleashed the dinosaur outbreak across the world.
Ace, an exofighter with the Hammerheads squad, crash-lands on Bikitoa Island due to a vortex that popped up out of nowhere during a routine patrol mission. There they encounter Leviathan, a new generation of AI that forces the rookie into a nigh-infinite series of wargames.
A chance meeting with the enigmatic exofighter Magnum teaches the Hammerheads that Leviathan’s wargames transport the team back in time—to the exact same date three years ago—for every wargame.
Why are the wargames always held on this day in the past? And why does Leviathan summon dinosaurs for them?
With countless questions looming over them, the confused team catches sight of an even more astonishing individual.
LEVIATHAN: AN ADVANCED AI
Developed by Aibius Corp., Leviathan is a new generation AI that guides players throughout Exoprimal via voice navigation and augmented reality displays.
Leviathan appears before players as a massive, human-like figure or as a surveillance drone called a Watcher.
Dinosaurs, once the most fearsome and powerful creatures in the animal kingdom, are no longer history. However, traveling through spacetime via the vortexes has mutated these beasts and ramped up their ferocity to all-new heights.
Humanity must rely on its ingenuity and its most powerful weapons – exosuits – to respond to this crisis.
Neosaurs are mutated dinosaurs with unusual appearances and abilities. Dinosaurs are imbued with a highly unstable energy when they cross through the vortex barrier after passing through spacetime. This energy is responsible for the ferocious transformation many dinosaurs undergo.
Neosaurs possess an extremely high concentration of this energy, granting them unusual appearances, abilities, and attacks.
In Exoprimal, the story unfolds as you play through the game’s main mode, Dino Survival. Gather intel known as “Lost Data” in these matches to update the Analysis Map in the database, and slowly unravel the mysteries of the island.
Revealing every secret surrounding this tale and bringing Leviathan’s story to a close is one of the main objectives of the game.
(Patrol Squad #52585)
The unofficial name for the exosuit squad made up of Ace, Lorenzo, Alders, Majesty, and Sandy. The crew get dragged into a giant vortex during a routine patrol mission and crash-land on Bikitoa Island.
Occupation: Exosuit Pilot
A full-fledged member of the Hammerheads, having joined Lorenzo and Alders on missions for the past two years. Ace rose to the rank of exofighter six months prior to the game’s events, but has yet to be recognized by the Aibius Corporation.
Ace’s appearance is fully customizable, and players will guide Ace through the game.
Occupation: Suit Mechanic
The de facto leader of the Hammerheads. A cool-headed veteran trusted by his crew. Lorenzo remains calm even in the hottest of situations.
His sister Haruka passed away in an unfortunate incident on Bikitoa Island in the year 2040.
Alders’ exofighter career was cut short after an accident cost him his right arm, which he then replaced with a prosthetic. This may explain why Alders hides his pessimistic nihilism behind a smile and frequent jokes.
He gets along well with the android Sandy, and treats her with the same sentiment one might share with a human being.
Occupation: Exosuit Pilot
Gunning to be the Aibius Corporation’s top pilot, she’s burned through six teams over two years. Majesty is the newest member of the Hammerheads. Sharp, realistic, and to-the-point, she is hardly the type to joke around with her squadmates.
Majesty is a nickname given to her by the crew. Her real name is Viktoria.
Occupation: Support Android
A mass-produced android equipped with various functions to assist the squad’s activities. Sandy’s highly advanced AI is capable of handling everything from combat support to personal counseling.
Repeated missions with the squad has fostered a unique personality within her, and she considers herself one of the team.
Exosuits are cutting-edge powered suits developed to combat the dinosaur threat. Based on their range of abilities, exosuits are primarily categorized into one of three roles:
Assault exosuits focus on dealing damage to enemies with close, medium, or long-range attacks. Although exact loadouts differ, each assault exosuit is equipped with weapons and abilities tailored to its effective combat range. Use the best weapon for the situation and eradicate whatever stands in your way.
Tank exosuits specialize in protecting their allies by drawing enemy attacks and absorbing damage. Whether they’re holding back a massive horde or stopping relentless dinosaur attacks, tank exosuits will form your team’s first line of defense.
Support exosuits use a variety of abilities to ensure the team’s survival. While the ability to repair allied exosuits is most common, support exosuits are also equipped with a range of buffing and debuffing abilities. Support exosuits use these abilities to improve a team’s combat effectiveness and accomplish objectives even faster.
Exofighters can change exosuits at any time, even during battle, by performing a suit change. Take advantage of this flexibility to alter your team composition on the fly and complete your objectives.
