Multiplayer games have taken over the video game space. So many large video games solely focus on providing experiences that are best played with friends. In some cases, though, the industry has gone a little overboard, and some feel the solo experience has been left behind. For a large company, Capcom does a good job of not forcing players into multiplayer games. Is Exoprimal a single player game?
Can you play Exoprimal solo?
Unfortunately for those who want a solo experience, Exoprimal is only a multiplayer game. There is no single player mode in the game at all. You will only play in a lobby with no other humans during the tutorial or if you go to the Firing Range. After this, all future missions put you in a team of five in either PvP or PvE modes. There is currently no way to enter a game filled with bots.
Exoprimal is also an online-only game. The first time you go to play the game, you will be required to make a CapcomID account to log in every time you play. Unfortunately, this doesn’t allow you to crossplay with friends on other platforms, as cross-platform play is only used for random matchmaking.
For anyone hoping for Exoprimal to resemble Dino Crisis in even the smallest of ways, this is likely disappointing. People who enjoy playing their games without others will likely aim to stay away from Exoprimal. It doesn’t even deliver much of a satisfying story experience, as you will be given cutscenes to see what is happening outside of your battles, but that doesn’t amount to much. It’s a pretty lackluster story overall.
If you are iffy about Exoprimal not being a single player game, we recommend trying it on Game Pass if you are a subscriber. It does have its fun moments, but it doesn’t provide the traditional single-player experience that Capcom players are used to.
