Iron Galaxy, the developer best known for Killer Instinct and Divekick, has announced its newest game, Extinction, where gamers will take on 150-foot ogres in an effort to defend helpless people against annihilation.
Essentially it’s Attack on Titan, albeit without the whole anime aspect attached to it.
According to Iron Galaxy, Extinction throws players into the role of Avil, a Sentinel soldier who must take down waves of giant beasts, known as Ravenii, that are hell-bent on destroying everything in their path. Players will also take on hordes of minion armies as they fight against the ogres.
The below trailer gives gamers a taste of what to expect in the fast-paced title that the game’s director, Kraig Kujawa, calls “absolutely relentless”. While the trailer is only a cinematic showing, it does provide a brief glimpse at an intense upcoming E3 gameplay trailer toward the end of the cinematic trailer.
As for what gamers can expect from Extinction, the game’s publisher, Maximum Games, claims there will be an “abundant” campaign with plenty of main and side missions for gamers to enjoy. Additionally, Maximum Games says this about the gameplay in Extinction:
“Travel horizontally and vertically, perform wall runs, and use your whip as a vault to perform devastating air assaults. Master dynamic combat maneuvers to effectively traverse the giant beasts and expose their weak points, progressing along different skill trees to develop a path best suited to your playstyle.”
While more information will be coming at E3, the trailer makes it sound like Extinction will be primarily a single-player experience. Hopefully Iron Galaxy has some multiplayer in mind, since taking down towering hulks with friends would be a blast.
At the moment, Extinction is set for a Q1 2018 release, and will be launching on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. While more information is due at E3, the game will be shown behind closed doors, so it’s unclear when additional details will be available to gamers.
Extinction is set for release in 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
