Curious as to what’s been going on here at Lukewarm Media? Well we’re here to settle your curiosity! Primal Carnage has been evolving steadily into what we hope will be an amazing game for our fans and supporters to finally dig their teeth into and play! But today, we’re letting you know that we’ve added a brand new class to the game.
That’s right. It’s our hard-hitter, the ever brutal Carnotaurus. Though that’s not all we’ll be giving you the scoop on. We’ve also got some great new details on one of the members of the human team: The Pyromaniac. Along with this fabulous press release, we bring you the first of our “Character Showcase” videos which will give you an inside look at how each of the classes function within the world of Primal Carnage. Not to mention you’ll get a great show of some of the fast-pace action of our multiplayer experience!
The Pyromaniac deserves his name, and if his custom-built Flamesaw isn’t proof enough, then his role on the mercenary team is. The Flamethrower part of his weapon is effective for keeping dinosaurs at bay, but with its limited range he has to wait until they get close to begin with. Then there’s the Chainsaw part, and that needs to get in even closer. When ranged destruction is called for, the Pyromaniac does carry around a few grenades for such a purpose. Despite his seemingly reckless nature, his teammates will often rely on him for protection from worse creatures.
The Pyromaniac’s flames are ideal for roasting or driving back smaller dinosaurs, but when it comes to the T-Rex he has to decide if he really wants to get up that close.
Flamethrower: This gasoline powered Flamethrower delivers intense flames over a fairly short distance. The fire will make short work of anything caught within it, enough to make any dinosaur reconsider a frontal approach.
Grenade: When burning or cutting isn’t an option, and a bit of range is needed, pull the pin and give the Grenade a toss. The explosion is impressive, but only a few of these can be carried at a time.
Chainsaw: This secondary part of the Flame saw weapon is a gas-guzzling machine, and the most deadly melee weapon in the mercenary team’s arsenal.
Carnotaurus is the lurking menace of the dinosaur team, and any mercenary foolish enough to drop their guard is ripe pickings for this speedy predator. While lacking the size of the rex, Carnotaurus makes up for its smaller stature with incredible speed and brute force, breaking up crowds with his powerful charge and sharp horns. While the Carno can run all over the battle field, his flanks are vulnerable, giving the mercenaries a window of opportunity against this bruiser.
Headbutt: With two tons of hunger behind its pointed horns, a head butt from a Carno sends even the bravest merc flying.
Bite: The Carno uses his hatchet-like maw to inflict deep wounds into its unfortunate prey. While not extremely powerful, this slashing menace is best avoidedAnd now for the information you’ve been waiting for…
