Legend calls them the Ravenii, encroaching armies of bloodthirsty monsters that once threatened to destroy humankind. Now, the threat has returned. Iron Galaxy and Maximum Games are proud to announce their thrilling, fast-paced action game – EXTINCTION.
As far back as anyone can remember, humanity has been at war with itself. For generations, kingdoms have fought amongst themselves while the real threat loomed in the distance. Only those trained in the ways of the ancient order stand a chance at defeating the 150-foot-tall ogres and the armies that trail in their wake. You are one of the world’s last Sentinels, a soldier named Avil, equipped with the skills to battle the endless waves of Ravenii.
In Extinction, you’ll fight massive ogres and their minions across a sprawling countryside, defending cities and rescuing native villagers torn from their homes. Swiftly define your strategy as hordes attack from the ground and air. Use the dynamic skill-based combat system to tactically disarm and dismember enemies before going in for the kill.
According to the games director “Extinction is absolutely relentless”
“As the protagonist tasked with a huge undertaking – both in fighting enormous ogres and saving humans from disaster – each player’s experience will be varied, as the landscapes and battle situations are never identical,” said Derek Neal, Executive Producer at Maximum Games.
A deep story campaign can be expected as players protect the human population by rescuing as many civilians as possible and taking down brutal opponents. We are also told that dynamic side missions a plenty with various objectives, earning upgrades to aid you in your campaign. Through skill-based combat players can travel horizontally and vertically, performing wall runs, with the use of their whip as a vault to perform devastating air assaults, by mastering 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.
Extinction also offers an interactive environment allowing players to move freely around a fully destructible environment, and use objects throughout the world to your strategic advantage. With innumerable battle scenarios, every battlefield is different from the last, ensuring a unique combat situation each time you play. There are even custom battles where you can create custom battlegrounds with varied objectives, and challenge players online to compete for the top score.
Based on what we have already seen we are already excited for Extinction and looking forward to bringing you more insight on the game at E3 2017.
