Hunt – Explore – Survive
Step into a huge Jurassic world (24 km2 / 9.3 mi2) where the very environment will challenge your survival skills.
theHunter: Primal is a new member in the highly popular theHunter Franchise created by Expansive Worlds and Avalanche Studios. Since the release of the original game over 4.5 million players have played the game!
theHunter: Primal offers both singleplayer and multiplayer modes (up to 16 players), and you can make each game session private. For a real challenge join or create a PvP session, but for players that want to focus on cooperation you can turn PvP off.
In theHunter: Primal players begin with very limited equipment. You need to explore the island in search of more powerful weapons, clothing and equipment. Sounds easy? Well not only is the island littered with poisonous plants, but deadly dinosaurs roam the island looking to feast on the weak.
Only the foolish will challenge the mighty Tyrannosaur Rex alone. Careful planning, cooperation and backpacks filled with ammo and weapons is needed to bring this beast down. But watch out! The island is also populated with highly intelligent Utahraptors traveling in packs. Like wolves they communicate and work together to bring down a lonely hunter. Make sure to check you six! Want a more peaceful hunt? In that case the Triceratops might be an easier prey.
The game features a persistent inventory system, which means that what you collect in one game session is available in another. But alas, this comes with a price. If you die, all your equipment is lost, but if you are fast enough you can claim back your lost backpack before another hunter loots your stuff. For the more helpful players, we have made sure that you can share items with your other hunters.
