Exoprimal ends its seasonal content, but it’s not going extinct just yet

With the latest update, Exoprimal, Capcom’s dinosaur-fighting action game that isn’t Dino Crisis, will no longer release seasonal content, Capcom announced Friday. This news comes just one year after launch.

However, Exoprimal isn’t done just yet. Not only will the game remain online for now, but older seasons will be put up for sale for the rest of the year. Season 1 will come back after Season 4 ends on July 11, Season 2 will go up in August, and so on until December. Players can also continue to check out weekly campaigns and missions, including double EXP events multiple times a week and Savage Gauntlets. Finally, all game modes will be available, including the story. And if you’re having issues finishing the campaign alone, the developers promise some AI bots will come and help. You can check out the full schedule here.

The Survival Passes offer rewards, while their premium tiers will offer additional items. You can also buy a bundle with all four seasons at a discount, although it’s unclear what the full price will be.

While Exoprimal did decently for Capcom after launch in July 2023 largely thanks to it being on Xbox Game Pass, it failed to pick up players on Steam.

If you’ve ever thought about picking up this team-based action game where you — and I can’t stress this enough — fight dinosaurs in increasingly ridiculous ways, now is the best time. You’ll still have the chance for all the rewards, and best of all, the game is on sale for $20 on Steam until July 11 during the Steam Summer Sale. It’s also available on Xbox Game Pass, and the PlayStation Store and Xbox Store at full price.

Grand Theft Auto V makes its surprise return to Xbox Game Pass today

Xbox Game Pass is kicking off July with a major surprise, as Grand Theft Auto V has returned to the service. Rockstar's sales juggernaut leads an otherwise light month for Game Pass, which brings Capcom's Exoprimal as a day-one launch.

This isn't the first time that Grand Theft Auto V has been on Game Pass. It was previously on the service circa 2021 but removed from it that August. Rockstar has a history of putting its games on Game Pass for a brief window before pulling it, as it also did with Red Dead Redemption 2.

One of my favorite 2022 games just came to Xbox Game Pass, and you need to try it
Arcade cabinets stand in a room in Arcade Paradise.

When I think back to 2022, there are a ton of critically acclaimed games that stick with me. Naturally, I spent countless hours adventuring through the Lands Between in Elden Ring. Splatoon 3 and Vampire Survivors ate up my entire summer, while I still think about Pentiment and Immortality months later. There's one lesser-known game, though, that was a go-to I kept coming back to throughout the year despite the fact that it wasn't talked about nearly as much as any of those games.

That would be Arcade Paradise, a quiet 2022 standout that's now available on Xbox Game Pass today. Developed by Nosebleed Interactive, it's a unique simulation game that balances 90s nostalgia with a thoughtful look at the line between hobby and work. If you spent any time during your youth hanging around arcades, you'll want to give it a try while it's on Game Pass.

The Run: Got Next is a vibrant spiritual successor to NBA Street

The Run: Got Next is a new vibrant street basketball game from former EA developers who worked on series like NBA Street, Madden, and Dead Space.

Its developer is Play by Play Studios, which former Visceral Games General Manager Scott Probst and Madden creative director Mike Young formed two years ago. In a blog penned by Probst, the studio reminisces about an era of sports games free of needlessly complex simulations, grinding, and Ultimate Team-fueled microtransactions. "We're not going to worry about overly complex menus, micromanagement of rosters, the opening of packs, or playing a game that feels like I'm watching a broadcast ...We're gonna double down on the fun and get you into the game, and we're gonna do it with style," writes Probst.
