This November we are expecting the evolution of the 2012 MMO dinosaur shooter with Primal Carnage Extinction. Class based, fast paced, multiplayer dinosaur simulation is inbound from indie devs Circle Five Studios. They released original Primal Carnage in 2012 and two years on they have revised the online dinosaurs versus humans arena title.

Obviously everyone wants to have a go at being a dinosaur, tearing holes in the humans and their pesky gun tech, so lets take a look to see what sort of hardware this dino sequel might require to run Primal Carnage Extinction system requirements. The graphics engine is a modified Unreal 4, which is what the original was built on, so we expect the requirements to be pretty low by today's standards.

Primal Carnage Extinction Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows XP SP3 (32-bit only) with DirectX 9.0c
  • CPU: 2GHz single core processor minimum
  • RAM: 2 GB of system memory needed
  • GPU VRAM: 512 MB graphics card memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce 7800 or similar AMD
  • HDD: 3 GB hard drive space required
  • DX: 9 Direct X

Primal Carnage Extinction Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 or 8.1 64-bit
  • CPU: 2GHz dual core processor
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • GPU: AMD Radeon HD 4870 / NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT
  • HDD: 3 GB
  • DX: 9 Direct X

Low end requirements here from the dinosaur sequel Primal Carnage Extinction. Its still running the same engine as its predecessor but this means the indie devs have kept the dinosaurs open to the older rig owners amongst us and have been focusing on some enhanced gameplay features, based on fan feedback from their original title. However, do take note of the 8GB RAM requirement in the recommended requirements.

Extinction includes three entirely new maps to bring their map total to twelve. Deathmatch and Get to the chopper game modes, Five human classes and of course 9 dinosaur types that have abilities like charging, chomping, flying, blinding, sneaking...you get the idea.

So GD'ers all I can say now is - grow your moustache so it joins your beard and sideburns and stick on your dusty cowboy hat, cus its time to shoot us some big game! Whos with me?
