Disclaimer: I am aware that the main game, theHunter: Primal, ended up failing and being no longer supported by Expansive Worlds. This idea was made as a what if it got a sequel in the style of Call of the Wild.

theHunter™ Primal: Cry of Eden is a sequel to theHunter: Primal being made in the style of theHunter™: Call of the Wild. It is set to release Spring 2020 and is being developed by Expansive Worlds and will be published by Avalanche Studios. It will be available for purchase on Steam.

Background Information

You are a Pioneer from the Expansive Galaxies Corporation, sent to the Prehistoric planet by the name of "Primal Eden" to search for missing pioneers that were lost on the timeless world. You are only armed with a machete as you land on the soil of this ancient world, and you must search for better camouflage and weapons to defend yourself and hunt the native inhabitants of this world: dinosaurs. Chances of survival are little, and the only way to survive is to make your way to the top of the food chain. In theHunterPrimal: Cry of Eden, the hunter becomes the hunted.

The Pioneer

The hunter, known as "Pioneer" in game lore, is an ex-criminal, a prisoner of the Expansive Galaxies Corporation, sent to Primal Eden as an alternative to the death penalty in an attempt to colonize the planet. Only given a SettlerMate, a device that shows the worldwide map of Primal Eden, and a crude machete created from what metal scraps were found on the drop pod, the Pioneer must survive and defend against dinosaurs that roam the landscape. To survive, the player must collect or buy weapons and other accessories, and ultimately make his or her way to the top of the food chain.

Spawn and Shop

The player spawns into the map via drop pod, starting out with a cutscene inside the drop pod, with emergency red lights flashing within the interior. The drop pod has a hard landing impact, with the screen shaking upon impact. The door to the pod then slowly opens, and the player steps out. This cutscene can be skipped if the player so wishes. If the player dies, they will respawn inside a drop pod.

Drop pods can also be used as shops/storage. When a weapon/ammo/item/etc. are purchased, they will appear inside the drop pod and can be grabbed by the player. They can also store items of any sort inside a drop pod.

Regions

There are a total of seven regions on Primal Eden, with no subregions, a difference from Call of the Wild.

  • The Royal Palace: The smallest, yet most important region to Primal Eden's human history. Lying on the border between Mt. Sisyphys and Celeste's Reach, this area acted as the chief Noble base of Primal Eden, being the home of the Noble Hunter King Zachary Baden, the first human pioneer ever to set foot on Primal Eden. While the remains of the palace seem charred and desecrated, the palace itself is still the largest base on Primal Eden. (Bases: Remains of the Palace)
  • Death Valley: The westernmost area of Primal Eden's mainland, and the former stomping grounds of the Chop Chop Tribe and the noble Sir Arthur Day-And-Night. Primarily open grassland, but also contains some forest and a few wetlands. Named based on the amount of greater predators that linger about, such as the likes of Tyrannosaurus and Carnotaurus. Pterosaurs, such as the likes of Quetzalcoatlus and Pteranodon linger the skies above the region, following their seasonal routes. Also a prime migratory area for herbivores of all types. (Bases: Sir Arthur's Folly, Meteorological Station 1, Big Chop Grounds, Chop Chop No Go, Chop Chop Hollow)
  • Tyrant Paradise: The large, northwest portion of Primal Eden's mainland, containing primarily wetlands and forests, with small traces of open grassland in the southernmost area of the region. Details and landmarks indicate this area once belonged to the noble Redmond Bushwack and the Red Face Tribe. It received its name from the vast amounts of Tyrannosaurus, Spinosaurus, Acrocanthosaurus, and Thanatotheristes that call this region home, though it is also a prime feeding area for many herbivores, the swamps also containing supple amounts of fish for pterosaurs to sustain from. (Bases: Bushwack Meadows, Cape Trihorn, Skyfall Basin, Raptor Bay, Warchief's Mound)
  • Mount Sisyphys: The central region of Primal Eden's mainland, containing the largest and volcano of Primal Eden, the name of which the region is named after. Pterosaurs are often seen circling the volcano, presumably defending their nesting grounds, while below, terrestrial-based carnivores of all types linger, waiting patiently for their next meal. (Bases: Mt. Sisyphys Research Station)
  • Celeste's Reach: The mideastern-most region of Primal Eden's mainland, named after the Noble Scientist Celeste von Lutz. Most of her time, presumably leading up to her death, was spent in her laboratory within this region. To the north of the region remain a mineral lake born from the volcanic activity of Mt. Sisyphys. The region itself is primarily forest and open grassland, making it prime territory for any terrestrial-based carnivore, and feeding grounds for an abundance of herbivores, and occasional scouting grounds for pterosaurs. (Bases: Madame Celeste's Lab, Site C, Greedy Belly, Lava Lake, Crooked Creek)
  • Eden's Maw: The easternmost region of Primal Eden's mainland named after its mouth-resemblant geological structure. This region was primarily used by "stationed" mercenaries, who would use the thick tropics to their advantage. This region is primarily home to smaller inhabitants, such as the likes of Veloociraptor, Pectinodon, and Hypsilophodon, but is occasionally hunting grounds to medium-sized carnivores, like Utahraptor. (Bases: Site B, The Great Egg, Diana's Grove)
  • Reaper's Harvest: A medium-sized blade-like region sandwiched in between Tyrant Paradise and Eden's Maw. This region was a battleground for the warring Houses, where a majority of human-on-human blood was spilled on Primal Eden's mainland. This region is home to an abundance of raptors, and is presumably their prime breeding location, though small herbivores and medium carnivores can also be found here. (Bases: Site A, Site Z)
  • Cannibal Peninsula: The southernmost region of the mainland, named after its geological status and the amount of religious-inspired cannibalism that occurred here by pioneers driven mad by the hostile conditions of Primal Eden. This region is inhabited mostly by medium carnivores, migrating herbivores, and fishing pterosaurs, but are sometimes used by Tyrannosaurus as hunting grounds.

  • Spinosaurus: A giant, semi-aquatic carnivore equipped with a large sail on its back. Due to their short legs, they are slow on land, and prefer to stay in water where they can ambush their prey. They will retreat to any nearby large body of water if shot at, but will attack if the player ends up too close or is unlucky enough to walk right by their ambush spot. If approached, they make effective use of their giant claws, which can easily rip the player apart. They prefer swampy areas with deep enough water to hide in.

Boss Species

  • Primal Tyrannosaurus: The ferocious Queens of Primal Eden. They are relentless and show no mercy, and will destroy everything that move. They cannot be found roaming the planet. Their living area is unknown, but using the scent gland of an Alpha T. rex will attract these beasts into facing the player. They are very difficult to kill, but share a mutual fatal flaw with other Tyrannosaurs: the soft chest area. Once killed, they drop a special gland used to summon an even more fearsome adversary... (Difficulty: Extremely Hard, Class: 9, Weight: 18,143 kg/40,000 lbs/20 tons)
  • The Cataclysm of Death: A large, spiky black dragon that destroyed all of mankind on Primal Eden a decade ago, now slumbering inside Mt. Sisyphys' molten depths. He can only be awoken by using the scent gland of a Primal Tyrannosaurus at the caldera of Mt. Sisyphys. Bullets cannot penetrate his hide, but his wings are his weakspot. Once he lands at the Mt. Sisyphys base, he is vulnerable. He has a variety of fiery attacks, and all can destroy you like the maggot you are compared to him, the fearsome Overlord of Primal Eden. Each time slaying this dragon provides you with very rare items to aid in your hunts. (Difficulty: Ungodly, Class: 9, Weight: 22,680 kg/60,000 lbs/25 tons)

Tracking Info and Needs Areas

As the player hunts dinosaurs throughout the game, they will discover tracks from dinosaurs and calls from dinosaurs. Throughout the map, need areas can also be found.

Tracking

There are multiple types of tracks from each dinosaur. Carnivores, however, have a unique track.

  • Wander: A track that indicates a dinosaur was walking.
  • Droppings: Excrement from the dinosaurs that show how recently they were in that area.
  • Trot: A track that indicates a dinosaur that was moving at a quick rate, either because they noticed your presence or were searching for you earlier.
  • Flee: A track that indicates a dinosaur was running away from you.
  • Pursuit: Unique to carnivores only. This dinosaur was pursuing a dinosaur or a pioneer.
  • Subsurface Depression: Missing aquatic vegetation and disturbed silt from a dinosaur that has fled while in the water.
  • Vegetation Disturbance: Unlocked with a specific skill. Disarranged vegetation that sometimes have feather or scale shedding that determines the skin variation of the dinosaur.
  • Blood: A track that indicates a wounded dinosaur that could either have been shot or attacked. There are five levels of blood intensity: Very Low, Low, Medium, High, and Very High.

Calls

There are three types of calls which indicate the mood and behavior of a dinosaur.

  • Mating: A dinosaur in heat makes this call. More likely to be attracted to mating calls thinking they will find a mate.
  • Warning: An alert call from a dinosaur, meaning they have noticed your presence or the presence of a predator, if the dinosaur is herbivore. Less likely to come to calls.
  • Territorial: A call from an aggressive dinosaur sending out a challenge call to an invader in its area. Dinosaur is more likely to come to calls of the mutual species than others in the group.

Need Areas

There are two types of Need Areas.

  • Feeding: Spots that lack vegetation that indicate a feeding area for herbivores. For carnivores, there will be a corpse of some kind of dinosaur that they have fed from. Feeding areas can also be discovered by spotting a dinosaur eating in that spot.
  • Drinking: An area in a water source that dinosaurs drink from. Can only be discovered by spotting a dinosaur drinking in that spot.
  • Resting: A spot of matted vegetation on the ground where a dinosaur has been resting. Resting areas can also be discovered by spotting a dinosaur laying in that spot.
  • Nesting: An area where a female dinosaur has been nesting. Sometimes contains eggs.

Landmarks

Around the map of Primal Eden, there are landmarks that can be discovered. These landmarks include:

  • Lore
  • Areas of Interest
  • Hunting Towers

Upon purchase, constructed hunting towers can be used to gain a vantage point as well as coverage protection from some dinosaurs. However, hunting towers can be destroyed by medium and large dinosaurs.

Overlooks

There are 8 overlook towers around Primal Eden, which were built by Spec-Ops scouts in order to gain vantage points and protection from pursuing dinosaurs. They are mostly found near Noble Bases, Research Stations, and Military Bases (see Bases).

  • The Royal Overlook
  • Sir Arthur's Lookout
  • Madame Celeste's Tower
  • Sisyphys Overlook
  • Tyrant Paradise Lookout
  • Raptor Bay Overlook
  • Damballa's Tower
  • Death Valley Lookout

Bases

There are a total of 26 bases (better known as Settlements) on Primal Eden, and there are 6 types. The amount of bases and types are listed below.

Base Types

  • Campground: Campgrounds that were made by settlers of Primal Eden. Mostly contains primitive items. (Rating: 1)
  • Tribal Settlement: Very small settlements that can either be structures or small camps. Mostly contains primitive items. (Rating: 1)
  • Makeshift Settlement: Settlements that can either be 2 or more primitive structures or larger camps. Mostly contains primitive items. (Rating: 1)
  • Pioneer Settlement: Settlements that were made from Pioneers sent by Expansive Galaxies in the past. Some are multiple structures or large camps, and contain primitive to moderate equipment and weapons. (Rating: 2)
  • Military Base: Bases constructed by the warring armies during Primal Eden's past. They are advanced structures made from stone, and can contain decent weapons and equipment. There is a chance to find an Anti-Personnel rifle within one. (Rating: 3)
  • Research Station: Bases constructed by researchers who wanted to observe specific areas. They are great bases to find some stronger weapons. The research base on Mt. Sisyphys can sometimes contain a .50 Spec Ops Sniper. (Rating: 4)
  • Noble Base: Bases owned by the Nobles of Primal Eden in the past. Despite being in ruin, they can be used as safety from pursuing predators, and contain very powerful weapons. (Rating: 5)

Bases

  • Chop Chop Hollow: A tribal campground within a dug-out pit owned by the "Chop Chop" Tribe. It was given from the tribe to a hispanic settler by the name of Trevor Ramirez, who seemingly met his fate at the jaws of an unknown predator. His lost SettlerMate recording reads: "And they said the locals are nothing but deranged inbreds! This cozy little spot makes for an excellent camping ground. I can't thank those guys enough for showing me this place. Hold on. What's that noise?" (Mission: None)
  • Crooked Creek: A settler campground built next to a flowing body of water known as "Crooked Creek". It belonged to an Asian settler who seemingly went insane, as can be assumed from his lost SettlerMate found at the campground. The recording reads: "Mr. Chen knows everything. Mr. Chen has stolen all secrets. These secrets are what will make Mr. Chen rich. And when Mr. Chen is rich, Mr. Chen will buy enough bombs to eradicate everything on this planet." (Mission: None)
  • Diana's Grove: A campground deep within the eastern jungles of the island, with a good view of the lake. This campground was owned by a woman named Diana Lee, who apparently had committed suicide. Her lost SettlerMate recording reads: "I like this place. The ocean ahead, my back against the cliffs. I got a good gun and plenty of supplies. Things won't get any better than this. I might as well end it myself before something else does." (Mission: Diana's Gun)
  • Lava Lake: A settler campground built next to a mineral hot spring produced by the previous eruption of the volcano Mt. Sisyphys. The resident settler went by the name of Eric Munro, who wanted to eradicate all saurian life on the planet and make it some sort of vacation planet. His lost SettlerMate recording reads: "Here we could have a resort. Some sort of a health spa. Claim that the minerals in the lava rock is good for the skin. As soon as we get these beasts eradicated all my land deeds will start paying off. We must rebrand the planet though. What to call it...?" (Mission: None)
  • Warchief's Mound: A tribal campground within the jungles near the northernmost swamplands that was owned by the "Red Face" tribe. The lost SettlerMate recording reads: "She was great war chief. Even Chop Chop was scared. A great sadness that it was Threehorn that killed her." (Mission: Warchief's Rites)
  • Chop Chop No Go: A tribal settlement made upon a small peninsula on the lower west side of the main island. It belonged to the Chop Chop Tribe before being taken over by the noble Celeste von Lutz. One of her lost SettlerMates located here explains her plans to destroy the Chop Chop Tribe. The recording reads: "Seems like these feral settlers believe that their rituals keeps the Tyrannosaurs away from here. Well, I see no other option than to prove them wrong. I got enough meat here to attract every damn carnivore within a 10 mile radius. Chop Chop will indeed go." (Mission: None)
  • Crater Bay: An abandoned tribal settlement built on the beach of a bay known as "Crater Bay". This settlement was used as a camping ground for a slavic settler by the name of Bogdan Domitrescu. His lost SettlerMate recording reads: "There are giant beasts here! Giant beasts! Why didn't anyone tell us about the giant beasts?!" (Mission: None)
  • End of the World: An abandoned tribal settlement built on the bottom left corner of the main island. It was used as a campground for hispanic settler Nat Lopez, who had figured out the truth of why Expansive Galaxies was sending criminals to Primal Eden. His lost SettlerMate recording reads: "This is all part of some cruel show. There are satellites with cameras hooked up to a live feed in some godforsaken interstellar entertainment network. Someone somewhere is earning tonnes of cash thanks to us." (Mission: None)
  • Greedy Belly: A primitive settlement near the base of the Mt. Sisyphys volcano that once belonged to the Red Face tribe. A settler by the name Martin Leitner resided here alongside the tribe, who was seemingly intrigued by the fabricated culture of the tribe. His lost SettlerMate recording reads: "They say anyone can challenge the Chief for control of the tribe. The challenge was not combat as I first thought, but rather an eating contest. The one who can consume the most raw meat wins the challenge and takes control of the tribe. They certainly are worthy of the name "Red Face" tribe. (Mission: None)
  • Raptor Bay: A primitive settlement formerly known as "Rapture Bay". This settlement was built by Peter Murphy and a few unknown pioneers who were driven into a crazed religious frenzy, therefore given its original name "Rapture Bay". Murphy's lost SettlerMate recording reads: "So, we decided on a name for this place. "Rapture Bay". We will be taken from this place and claim our positions in Heaven. Blood has been spilled. Meat is fresh. We can hear the Angels of Death that will claim us from beyond the treeline. All we can do is wait." (Mission: None)
  • Big Chop Grounds: A makeshift primitive settlement overlooking a flowing body of water known as "Raptor River". Believed to have been the chief camp of the Chop Chop Tribe. The lost SettlerMate at this settlement appears to have been owned by a mostly illiterate person who was part of this tribe. The lost SettlerMate recording reads: "We wait for Big Chop. Big Chop will speak to us. We will listen. Then we speak. Big Chop will listen. Then Big Chop attack stupid Red Face Tribe." (Mission: None)
  • Feast of Damballa: A makeshift settlement created by insane, cannibalism-driven pioneers who treated the area as a religious gathering in the name of their goddess "Damballa". Many human lives were sacrificed and human flesh consumed all in the name of their fictional deity. The lost SettlerMate from one of the cultists' recordings reads: "We have brought our Gods here. Smuggled them in. There are no Gods here but ours. Baron and Maman are prepared, but the others still slumber. Soon, we feast in the name of Damballa." (Mission: None)
  • The Great Egg: A primitive makeshift settlement that was used to house a "Great Egg", hence the name. This settlement was presumably owned by the tribals, who mentioned something about a "Great Beast" hatching from the egg. The lost SettlerMate recording here reads: "Out from the Great Egg rose a Great Beast. The Greatest of Beasts. Bigger than Chop Chop! It walks with thunder! It devours the sky!" (Mission: The Great Beast)
  • Site A: The first "Site" military base owned by mercenaries working for the Nobles while fighting the War of the Houses. A strong and sturdy outpost. Not much is known about the history of this base. Sgt. DeMeyer's lost SettlerMate recording here reads: "The way the morning broke was quite unusual. The ground started to grind, sort of. Smoke unfolded like the wings of an eagle." (Mission: None)
  • Site B: The second "Site" military base owned by mercenaries working for the Nobles while fighting the War of the Houses. Not much is known about the history of this base, except the fact there were reports and speculation of beasts lurking within the depths. Pvt. Leo's lost SettlerMate recording here reads: "My fellow mercenaries claim to see things in the water. Makes me wonder if there's huge beasts in the ocean as well?" (Mission: None)
  • Site C: The third "Site" military base owned by the mercenaries working for the Nobles while fighting the War of the Houses. Not much is known about the history of this base. Pvt. Mustafa's lost SettlerMate recording here reads: "This is nothing but insanity! While we're fighting this pointless corporate war, the beasts are picking us off on both sides! Why aren't we fighting against them?" (Mission: None)
  • Site D: The fourth "Site" military base owned by the mercenaries working for the Nobles while fighting the War of the Houses. This Site was where a major battle occurred between the Houses' armies. A soldier by the name of Angela Morales, who presumably died during the battle, left her SettlerMate behind. Her SettlerMate recording reads: "Guns, guns, guns! (Barrage of gunfire, presumably from a 5.56) Where is the goddamn ammo!? (More gunfire)" (Mission: None)
  • Site Z: The fifth and final "Site" military base. Unlike the others who seemed to be focused on fighting the War of the Houses, this base was run by soldiers under the Expansive Galaxies corporation. This seemed to be the most tranquil of the Sites, but there were speculation and rumors of aliens at work. Major Tyson's log entry from his lost SettlerMate recording reads: "The higher-ups within the Executive Board are convinced there's been some activity here that is not of human origin. I am inclined to remain skeptical, and so are many others within the Security Division. I guess we'll mosey around here for a while and pretend to be looking for 'evidence' of extraterrestrial activity. Or whatever." (Mission: The Mystery of Eden's Origins)
  • Cape Trihorn: A research station positioned on the namesake "Cape Trihorn", named after the Triceratops activity within the nearby area. Expansive Galaxies Ground Control crew were stationed here. Their premise seemed to be to use Cape Trihorn as a landing area for spacecrafts. The lost SettlerMate recording here reads: "All systems are looking good. Descent is going smooth and easy... wait, hold on. You might need to rendezvous a few more times... (Utahraptor chirps) ...We've got raptors on the landing pad again... (Utahraptor shrieks and human screams) Damn it! They're attacking the ground crew! It's like we're some sort of goddamn buffet for these bastards! Where are the hell are the Mercs when we need them!?" (Mission: None)
  • Meteorological Station 1: As named, the Meteorological Station was supposed to be one of many research stations meant to determine Primal Eden's weather, however, its position within Utahraptor and Carnotaurus territory led to many attacks and deaths, driving the researchers within to madness. The lost SettlerMate recording here reads: "Make rain stop now! Make rain stop now or we kill you!" (Mission: None)
  • Mt. Sisyphys Research Station: The research station at the summit of Mt. Sisyphys. This research station was created in order to measure seismic activity of the volcano as well as to hold a communication tower at the summit, however, it appeared that Mt. Sisyphys' eruptions happened at the most random times. While a large majority of the research station has taken damage from the eruptions, it is surprisingly still intact, despite being in ruins. Sumitra Jee, the head researcher, left her lost SettlerMate here. Its recording reads: "We failed to predict the last eruption, and we are now consequentially trapped up here. Communications are down. We have no fresh water, no food, and no medical supplies. It is safe to assume that we're being left for dead. That seems to be the Corporation's traditional method for the poor souls on this hell planet. I wonder if the dragon rumors are true?" (Mission: None)
  • Skyfall Basin: A research station posted at the namesake "Skyfall Basin", a swamp created by the impact of a large meteor that collided on Primal Eden's surface during a time before mankind's first steps on the planet. According to the research here, the water contains traces of unknown metal alloys later named "Edenium" and "Primalite" by the Expansive Galaxies corporation. Vasili Pavlov, a slavic Scientist, left her SettlerMate here while recording her findings. Her lost SettlerMate recording reads: "Whatever crashed here was not a simple meteor. I do not care what Professor Kim thinks or says! My water sample readings show slight traces of metal alloys that are completely unknown to mankind! Who knows whatever remarkable discoveries I'll find?" (Mission: The Mystery of Eden's Origins/Objective)
  • Bushwack Meadows: A noble base positioned above the large swamp at Tyrant's Paradise owned by the Noble Redmond Bushwack. It seemed as if the original intention of Bushwack Meadows was to be a hunting resort on the planet, as Redmond Bushwack advertised it to fellow pioneers. A roman huntress by the name of Reyna Cromley stated in a recording on her lost SettlerMate: "Absolutely marvelous! Redmond was right! This is indeed a hunting paradise! Look at those long-crested animals and three-horned creatures across the marsh! Those heads would look fantastic mounted above the great fireplace at Castle Phaeton!" (Mission: None)
  • Madame Celeste's Lab: A noble base that acted as a laboratory for Madame Celeste von Lutz. Her lost SettlerMate here determines that she was researching the poisonous flowers of Primal Eden. It reads: "Interesting! These purple-flowered bushes do not actually attack the lungs. The toxin enters the body through the skin and actually stimulates the brain into believing the lungs are being attacked. This is why gas masks don't work." (Mission: None)
  • Sir Arthur's Folly: A noble base that was owned by the noble Sir Arthur Day-And-Night. The lost SettlerMate here determines that the base was used to hold a captive Tyrannosaurus, or possibly multiple, for research purposes, and it is very likely that is how the base came into ruins. Sir Arthur's lost SettlerMate reads: "You see, they have nerve clusters just a few inches into their nostrils. Theoretically, I should be able to use my thumb to take down a Tyrannosaur, but for obvious safety reasons, I will use a sharp stick instead. Are we rolling? Okay, open the cage." (Mission: Avenging Sir Arthur)
  • Remains of the Palace: Charred ruins of a very large base that determined by the lost SettlerMate located here, was the chief base of Primal Eden, where the Noble King Zachary Baden ruled over. The lost SettlerMate here is charred and the screen is cracked. King Baden's distorted recording reads: "The volc-... -rupted. Everythi-... is burni-... Is thi-... -ow we all di-... -old up. What is th-... thing in the sk-..." (Mission: Mystery of Eden's Fate)

Trivia

  • Unlike the original theHunter: Primal, which only had 5 species of dinosaur + 1 boss, this game has 18 (more counting DLC) species of dinosaur and 2 bosses!
  • The Cataclysm of Death is somewhat similar to Alduin from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim in both appearance and destructive nature.
  • The battle function between the Cataclysm of Death and a Primal T. rex is similar to how Yetis and Blood Dragons fight in Far Cry 5. However, the victor depends on how much health each adversary has, though the Cataclysm wins most of the time regardless.
