Winter 2019



Today marks the beginning of the Primal Carnage: Extinction Winter Event. Not only do we have a new update, but for the next few weeks we’ll be hosting special community events and introducing new Winter items to the store and holding fire sales every week.

One of the special events is a new Winter Art Contest with a fantastic prize for the winner. We’ll announce details on that soon.

See the bottom of this post to see the holiday update’s changelog.

It wouldn’t be the holidays without presents, though. And speaking of presents…





By popular demand, ALL gifts from past Winter updates have been brought back with the original 2015 gift 30% off right off the bat. In the past gifts awarded up to 16 players an item from that gifts selection of items. This year we decided that 16 seems a bit low, so to further celebrate the season of giving we’ve increased that number to 24. The player who opens the gift is blessed with a warm feeling inside, knowing they have brought a little joy to the world.

In addition to legacy gifts returning, we also have an all-new gift debuting this winter. The more the merrier!





A wide range of new skins, accessories and taunts arrive with this update, and over the next few weeks we’ll be running FIRE SALES on selected items in the store!

Both new and old items for a variety of classes will be rotating through, in addition to discounts on various winter themed items and cosmetics. Grab some hot deals while you can!

Keep an eye out for announcements on the in-game news ticker, the Primal Carnage: Extinction Discord, Facebook, or Twitter to know when new deals go live!
