To prepare players before donning mechanized combat armor and joining the fight, exoprimal director Takuro Hiraoka presented a briefing on the dynamic main game mode, Dino Survival. In this multiplayer experience, two squads of five Exofighters compete to carry out orders assigned by Leviathan, the sinister artificial intelligence behind the dinosaur outbreaks. Teams must complete missions before their rivals to win, stay alive, and continue to search for a way to escape the deadly Leviathan games.
