Primal Carnage, the prehistoric Unreal Engine shooter, has gone into open beta, Reverb Publishing and Lukewarm Media have announced.

Open Beta access is granted to everyone who pre-orders the game. When players pre-order they will have instant access to the beta as well as receiving an exclusive in-game feathered raptor skin to be made available when the game launches.

In Primal Carnage dinosaurs take centre stage in a class-based online multiplayer shooter. Players choose from human classes - with an arsenal of distinct and unique weaponry - or take control of menacing and powerful dinosaurs, from the cunning Velociraptor to the powerful Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Primal Carnage is set to release later this year.
