As a special bonus, everyone who participates in the OBT will receive an Aibius medal pendant to equip their exosuits with in the final game.
Warrior and Nimbus are the latest exosuits to charge into battle. Each model has unique powers to support its allies on the battlefield. Warrior has a heavy arsenal to stop enemies in their tracks. This bulky tank-type exosuit features heavy artillery to protect the team with impressive firepower. Nimbus is a highly mobile Support-type Exosuit. This rolling pistol shooter can charge into battle with guns blazing, or weave through swarms of dinosaurs to heal injured teammates.

The armored stegosaurus has returned from the past and has the strange new ability to disarm exosuits with its roar. The Sinornithosaurus are also dangerous. These winged beasts may be small, but they move in packs, clinging to exosuits to restrain them. There are also two other mutated variants: the Stealth Neosaurus and the Cryo Neosaurus, which use invisibility and ice attacks to shock Exofighters and wreak havoc.
Exoprimal is available for pre-order now and includes three Exosuit skins as a special bonus. In addition to the Standard Edition, a digital "Deluxe Edition" is also available, which includes the "Jump Start Kit" and the "Survival Pass (Season 1): Premium Rank" as a time-limited bonus.
