Update 1.9 and 1.9.1 Now Available

19Update1024

Las Vegas, NV – August 17th, 2017 – An update to Primal Carnage: Extinction has been released. The update will be applied automatically when you restart Primal Carnage: Extinction. The major changes include:

 

Challenge System

Challenges

This update features the new Challenge System, which will assign you 3 random challenges per week. Completing challenges will reward you with a random cosmetic item.

Challenge Progress and rewards will now be displayed at the end of every round on a new information screen. Holding the Tab key will switch between this and the scoreboard.

Over the next few updates we’re going to look at expanding this system with exciting new challenges and rewards.

NOTE: Challenge progress is only updated and saved at the end of every round. Leave early, and you will lose any unsaved progress. Challenges are only valid in TDM & GTTC modes.

 

 

Human Voice Commands

CommandoHatShot

Humans now have two voice commands at their disposal: Call For Help (Z) and Call To Follow (C). Both commands have a 5 second cooldown to prevent abuse and also displays the command as an event in the player chat.

 

 

Server Support for Custom Maps

Servers can now host player-created custom maps. Users must subscribe to the map a server is running before being able to join. Future updates will include enhancements to workshop map functionality.

Dedicated servers can subscribe to workshop items by adding something like the following in DefaultGame.ini

 

[Workshop.WorkshopInformation]

Each subscribed item id is taken from the workshop maps URL
