Just Cause dev's theHunter: Primal launches on Steam Early Access

Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios has another game in development: theHunter: Primal.

The dinosaur hunting survival game, from Avalanche subsidiary Expansive Worlds, launches today on Steam as an Early Access title priced 14.99.

You begin the game with limited equipment, and have to explore the island to find more powerful weapons and better clothing. Within the 24 km2 Jurassic world are poisonous plants as well as three species of dinosaur to content with: the fast-moving Utahraptor, the tri-horned Triceratops and superstar dino Tyrannosaurus Rex.
