Primal Carnage's Get to the Chopper mode now available as free DLC

Primal Carnage's first free DLC, which includes a new mode and a new dinosaur enemy, is now available for the dinosaur hunting shooter, publisher Reverb announced today.

The update brings in a mode called Get to the Chopper, in which a team of humans must fend off ravenous dinosaurs on the way to a helicopter at an extraction point. Get to the Chopper takes place on a new map, Downpour, a rainy jungle setting. Downpour is the home of a new addition to Primal Carnage's family of terrible lizards, the Spinosaurus, whose ferocious bite can kill in one hit.

The Spinosaurus is only available in Get to the Chopper; developer Lukewarm Media will release a paid version of the Spinosaurus for use in team deathmatch modes later this month. Today's free DLC also includes a modification of the existing Docks map, and other new ones will be available in future updates.

Lukewarm Media founder Ashton Anderson said in November that Get to the Chopper will be "the first of several additional game modes that will be offered absolutely free to our players." The update was originally planned to be released that month.
