Primal Carnage: Genesis, a story-driven, episodic single-player adventure that takes place in a world where dinosaurs have been brought back to life, is coming to PS4 and PC, Lukewarm Media has announced at GDC.

The game's blurb states: "We aim to resurrect the immersive dinosaur first person experience that people have been waiting for. Explore a mix of tropical and man-made environments that are teeming with prehistoric life, experience the fear of being hunted by long forgotten beasts and join in the survival of the fittest. Dinosaurs are back."

Created using Unreal Engine 4, Primal Carnage promises a mix of linear gameplay and open world exploration from a first-person human perspective.

Given the heavy focus on an immersive story-driven experience it was decided to go down the episodic route, as game director Ashton Andersen explains.

"We looked into several different storytelling methods and happened upon the episodic approach. It was a difficult decision for us, given the relative newness of episodic storytelling," he explained.

"Ultimately, the episodic method ended up being the clear victor due to the versatile nature of creating a story episode by episode. It allows us a lot of wiggle room, one very unique advantage of the episodic model is the ability for player feedback from the first episode to affect the development of the following episodes. Do players want to see more of a certain mechanic? Maybe people didn’t like playing a certain segment of the game, thus steering our focus elsewhere."

Check out the Unreal Engine 4 visuals in the trailer below.

There's currently no information on a release date.

I don't care how big a T-rex is, any threat they pose is immediately made laughable by the presence of those ridiculous arms. I'd have put some raptors in there personally :)
