Developers Iron Galaxy and Maximum Games have unveiled their latest title currently in the works. Extinction is an action game with a focus on its versatile combat system. A few lucky members of the industry and press will have the chance to get a peek at the game at E3 2017 in two week’s time. Extinction is set to release sometime during Q1 in 2018.
In the game, all of humankind is threatened by the ferocious Ravenii, an army of huge ogres and their monstrous followers. Only a specialized group of warriors called the Sentinels are equipped to take on this ghastly foe. The player steps into the shoes of Avil, one of the last Sentinels who is committed to defeating the Ravenii and protecting humanity from their lethal presence. The survival of the human race is on the line.
Iron Galaxy says the game is a fast-paced, exhilarating experience in which they can use their skills to take down enemy forces in a variety of ways. Avil can attack from both the ground and the air, and players will get the chance to experiment with both sides as they perfect their tactical strategy.
In addition to the Deep Story Campaign, Extinction includes a mode for creating customized battle scenarios (Custom Battles Mode) as well as one that lets players fight off wave after wave of Ravenii (Extinction Mode). All of this content will be available for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 when the game launches in Q1 2018.
