A new Monster Hunter collab in Exoprimal

If it’s dino fighting you are after, then Exopromal provides it. And with the arrival of Season 3 content comes all new opportunities, mostly focused on new gear, additional bosses and a collaboration with Monster Hunter. 

Kicking off from January 18th is Season 3 of Exoprimal. This follows the initial release of the base game back in July 2023, as well as the Overdrive Kit 1 and Street Fighter crossover. This time around? Well, there’s tons promised. 

A massive Exoprimal update

The biggest update for Exoprimal yet, Season 3 introduces the highly anticipated Monster Hunter collaboration, new Beta variant Exosuits, a Neo Triceratops boss battle and Jungle map. Further, expect to be found enjoying some fresh new gear, seasonal events and more. 

It’s the Exoprimal and Monster Hunter collaboration that is the main focus. Here, you’ll find that monster tracks will begin appearing in Dino Survival matches. After collecting a number of tracks, players will trigger a special Monster Hunter mission.

In this scenario, Exofighters will take on Rathalos, the iconic fire-breathing wyvern known as the “King of the Skies,” and hordes of Velociprey in a co-op boss fight alongside a hunting party of 10 players.

Further to that, the crossover also features special cosmetic sets inspired by the monsters and hunter armor from Monster Hunter. Exofighters can suit up in a Rathalos armor skin for Murasame, a Kirin armor skin for Skywave, a Nergigante armor skin for Barrage, and a Rajang monster skin for Roadblock. These cosmetic sets also include a variety of Monster Hunter-themed emotes, charms, decals, and Comm Wheel stamps.

A Neo Triceratops awaits

Need more? Well, there’s the Neo Triceratops boss fight to take in too. See, Rathalos isn’t the only boss fight debuting in Exoprimal Season 3. A Neo Triceratops is also being summoned to the wargames for another exciting 10-player co-op battle! This massive creature has grown and mutated to gain unnatural strength. It can strike foes from a distance by shooting out spikes and has the power to enlarge its horns when charging into melee. Exofighters will need to work together under a respawn limit to overcome this fearsome new opponent.

Additional Beta suits?

There are also a range of new Beta Variant Exosuits present as well, each with unique weaponry and playstyles… 

  • Deadeye Beta: Energy MG – This model is equipped with an energy machine gun that can continue firing suppressive fire without reloading so long as it doesn’t overheat.  
  • Barrage Beta: Fire Spray – This variant’s flamethrower annihilates enemies at range with a devastating inferno.
  • Roadblock Beta: Counter Shield – This suit’s shield absorbs damage and unleashes it as a powerful ranged counterattack.
  • Skywave Beta: Lifeline – Healing allies enables this suit to acquire energy that can be used to form protective barriers that can safeguard the team from damage.

Welcome to the Jungle

And then comes the Jungle map. Dropping you into a tropical forest deep on the Bikitoa Island, Jungle features a pretty dense terrain. Exofighters are encouraged to consider using gear suited for close quarters and mid-range combat. Data indicates that leaping over obstacles to deliver surprise attacks on unsuspecting enemies is also highly effective!

Capcom have massive plans for Exoprimal though and will also be running the following Limited Time Events… 

  • Lunar New Year Campaign – Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2024 – Monday, Feb. 12, 2024
    • Exofighters can ring in the new year by unlocking a Lion Dance hat skin for all 10 original Exosuits.
  • Chocolate Campaign – Tuesday, Feb 13, 2024 – Thursday, Feb. 29, 2024
    • Exofighters can unlock a Chocolate Exosuit skin for all 10 original models to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
  • Double XP Campaign – Thursday, Jan. 18, 2024 – Monday, Jan. 22, 2024
    • Additional Double XP Campaigns will be held at later dates.

If you have a copy of Exoprimal on Xbox, PlayStation or PC, fire it up and you will be able to take in Season 3 from the 18th January. If not, take to the digital store of your choosing – the Xbox Store being ours – and get a download sorted. Exoprimal is on Game Pass too.
