Diablo 4 ruled last weekend, but I did carve out a little bit of time to try Exoprimal’s beta.
I won’t say it’s a perfect game, by any stretch; I had a lot of fun with it, but I have no doubt that the premise alone is doing a fair amount of the “enjoyment” heavy lifting. Something about blasting waves of velociraptors with various Anthem-style mech suits I can swap on the fly just… hits right where my inner eight-year-old needs it to.
Unfortunately the beta was pared down enough that it’s really hard to guess if the game has staying power. Lot of the customization was absent, as were alternate game modes, both of which would be 100% required for long term sustenance.
Still, it’s definitely on my radar in a big way now.
