The final version of The Hunter: Primal, a dinosaur-hunting game from Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios and its subsidiary Expansive Worlds, is now available for PC through Steam. The standalone, one-time purchase game launched previously as an Early Access title, but the finished version is available now for $24.

This special pricing is good through April 7, after which point the game will cost $30. Avalanche has also released a CGI launch trailer for Primal, which you can watch above.

New for the full release of Primal is the Quetzalcoatlus flying dinosaur, as well as additional weapons and a dynamic weather system that covers the game's entire 9.3 square mile map.

Developer Expansive Worlds has also added eye-tracking to Primal by way of a partnership with Tobii Tech and SteelSeries. Similar to how it works with Assassin's Creed Rogue, Primal's eye-tracking allows players to orient the game camera based on where the they are actually looking.

Of course, players will need a SteelSeries Sentry ($200) with Tobii eye-tracking support to take advantage of the new feature.

Primal is a spinoff from the main Hunter game, a free-to-play title for PC supported by microtransactions. That game recently introduced a new expansion that lets players hunt kangaroos in Australia.
