Capcom has announced that it will be hosting a series of closed network tests for its upcoming action game Exoprimal.
There will be three tests in total, each running for a limited time, and each will be on the Steam version of the game only.
Players can submit an entry to join the closed network tests on the Exoprimal website.
Capcom also released this new gameplay trailer, showing more of Exoprimal in action:

The first closed network test will take place on July 11 at 00:00 UTC (July 10 at 5pm PDT) and will last three hours. This will be limited to US and Canada players only.
The second test will be available to players worldwide, will take place on July 25 at 00:00 UTC and will last six hours. The third and final test will be on August 7 and will last 24 hours.
Capcom stresses that the aim of the tests is “to find issues that can be addressed in order to improve the quality of the game”, and that “as a result, we cannot guarantee a smooth gameplay experience”.
Exoprimal was first revealed in March during a PlayStation State of Play presentation. Set in 2043, it has players taking control of an Exofighter as they try to figure out why mysterious vortexes have been opening up, unleashing endless swarms of dinosaurs.
Although it’s not yet known whether Exoprimal is set in the same universe as the Dino Crisis games, Hiroyuki Kobayashi – who was co-designer on the first Dino Crisis and produced Dino Crisis 2 and 3 – has confirmed that he’s working on the game.
Kobayashi recently tweeted that he was “deeply involved” in a new title, then proceeded to list all the series he’d worked on in the past, including Resident Evil, Dino Crisis, Devil May Cry and Dragon’s Dogma.
At the bottom of the list is Exoprimal, suggesting that Kobayashi is involved in its development.
