- Capcom has announced that Exoprimal, its latest live-service IP, has achieved the one million players milestone.
- Despite the mixed reception due to its content pacing, Exoprimal has found an audience.
- Capcom previously unveiled a roadmap that highlights the first three seasons of the game with each season lasting around three months.
Exoprimal has gained over one million players within two weeks of its release. A commemorative skin for one of the Exosuits in the hero-based shooter was revealed, celebrating the milestone of this new IP. Capcom’s first major live-service venture hit the shelves on July 14, 2023, and received a mixed reception from critics and players alike.
Much of the criticism towards Exoprimal stemmed from its lack of content and intense microtransactions on launch. The aforementioned lack of content is allegedly a pacing problem as players have reported that the longer you play, the more content is unlocked. This sentiment was echoed in our review too as we referred to the game as a risky gamble.
Despite the issue in its content pacing, Exoprimal seems to have found its audience as we can see with its latest milestone. Capcom previously announced a roadmap for its latest project, and the first batch of new arrivals is just around the corner. The Savage Gauntlet will go live on July 27 for a limited time and players will take on new, intense challenges as they face off against ferocious predators.
Season 1 for Exoprimal will continue until October 12, 2023, and features two major updates. This includes the aforementioned Savage Gauntlet event in addition to the first title update, set for launch on August 16. Following the conclusion of the first season, Capcom will launch the second title update which will add a new map, rigs, modules, and a brand-new final mission. The second season will also feature the Street Fighter 6 collaboration.
Capcom has stated that Exoprimal will unveil a new season approximately every three months. Keeping this in mind, the third season is set to go live around mid-January, 2024. Considering the strong start of this new project, and the amount of content that’s currently planned, it appears that Capcom might end up building a solid footing in the live-service area.
