Here’s an overview of the game, via Capcom:
Expressive is an online, team-based action game that pits humanity’s cutting-edge exosuit technology against history’s most ferocious beasts – dinosaurs. Exosuits are grouped into different roles, and players will pilot these exosuits to hold their own against overwhelming dinosaur swarms in online-only, team-based multiplayer modes.
The year is 2040… Sudden dinosaur explosions have engulfed the globe in a crisis that threatens the existence of humanity.
However, all hope is not lost. The Aibius corporation has developed a hyper-advanced AI called Leviathan that can predict the location of future explosions.
That technology, along with Aibius’ revolutionary electric suits, or exosuits, give humanity a fighting chance to stem the tide of the saurian swarms.
Exosuit pilots, otherwise known as exofighters, are in high demand.
Take the ex-fighter’s aptitude test and join the ranks of Aibius’ heroic pilots in their fight to avoid the extinction of the human race.
Exosuits are cutting-edge powered suits developed to combat the dinosaur threat. Based on their range of abilities, exosuits are primarily classified into one of three roles: attack, tank, and support.
Exo fighters can change outer suits at any time, even during battle, by performing a costume change. Take advantage of this flexibility to change your team composition on the fly and meet your goals.
- an assault
- Attack outfits focus on dealing damage to enemies with melee, medium, or long-range attacks.
- Although exact loadouts differ, each assault suit is equipped with weapons and abilities tailored to its effective combat range.
- Use the best weapon for the situation and wipe out everything that stands in your way.
- Tank exosuits specialize in protecting their allies by drawing enemy attacks and absorbing damage.
- Whether they’re holding back a massive horde or stopping relentless dinosaur attacks, tank exosuits will form your team’s first line of defense.
- Support exosuits use a variety of skills to ensure the survival of the team.
- While the ability to repair allied exosuits is most common, support exosuits are also provided with a range of buffing and debuffing abilities.
- Support exosuits use these abilities to improve a team’s combat effectiveness and achieve objectives even faster.
Rigs are additional equipment for exosuits. Rigs give exosuits additional abilities, but only one can be equipped at a time.
For example, the Zephyr exosuit excels in close combat but has trouble with enemies that attack from long range. Equipping it with the Cannon platform will enable Zephyr to use a long-range laser.
Or equip Roadblock with the Support Platform to provide healing and create a formidable front line of defense.
Players can experiment with different combinations of platforms and exosuits to find their ideal play style.
Both platforms and exosuits can be changed at any time.
In Dino Survival, two squads of five race to complete objectives. Teams must follow Leviathan’s directives and complete the mission before their rivals to win.
Some situations pit players against each other in direct combat, and others require players to team up with their rivals to take down a major enemy.
In Dino Survival, the missions change based on players’ progression through the game. The experience will be different with each match, even in matches with familiar environments and objectives.
Players can unlock story sequences by playing Dino Survival and also earn rewards such as experience points to increase player and exosuit levels.
Dinosaurs, once the most fearsome and powerful creatures in the animal kingdom, are no longer history.
However, traveling through spacetime via the vortices mutated these animals and raised their ferocity to brand new heights.
Humanity must rely on its ingenuity and its most powerful weapons – exosuits – to respond to this crisis.
Neosaurs are mutated dinosaurs with unusual appearances and abilities.
Dinosaurs are imbued with highly unstable energy when they cross the vortex barrier after passing through spacetime.
This energy is responsible for the wild transformation that many dinosaurs undergo.
Neosaurs possess an extremely high concentration of this energy, giving them unusual appearances, abilities, and attacks.
