From Genesis to Extinction.
Primal Carnage: Extinction will be bringing some massive, gigantic dinosaur action to the PlayStation 4 when it releases early next year, the developer announced on the PlayStation Blog.
‘Primal Carnage: Extinction is a class-based, online multiplayer shooter unlike any other on the PS4 platform, featuring fast-paced combat, diverse environments, and over-the-top action,’ they said. ‘On a mysterious island overrun with prehistoric monsters, players can choose to fight as a variety of legendary dinosaurs or to join the human mercenary team armed with a unique, distinctive, and destructive arsenal aimed at making these bloodthirsty beasts extinct once and for all.’
Of course, alert and astute fans have probably already noticed that Primal Rage: Extinction just seems to be Primal Rage: Genesis, that was already announced for PlayStation a while back. So what happened to it, and what caused the morph to Extinction from Genesis?
‘Primal Carnage: Genesis began development at a time when the Primal Carnage brand and Lukewarm Media were being pulled in different directions, and forces within the company could not completely agree on which project to pursue. There was a strong concept for single-player narrative-driven Primal Carnage game, and there was an exciting opportunity to develop a game for the PS4, built on the brand new Unreal Engine 4, but ultimately the project was too large in scope for Lukewarm Media to pursue, and the project was unofficially put on hold at the end of Summer 2013,’ the developers said, before adding that if Extinction does well enough, they would definitely like to return to do Genesis one day.
