Extinction cinematic trailer

Developer Iron Galaxy, best known for fighting games like Killer Instinct and Divekick, today announced Extinction, an action game for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One in which players battle 150-foot ogres. It looks something like Attack on Titan with the anime tropes squeezed out.

Extinction will put players in the role of a soldier named Avil, one of the world’s last remaining Sentinels. As a Sentinel, your goal is to take down waves of Ravenii, giant man-eating beasts that threaten city and countryside alike, and their minion armies.

Game director Kraig Kujawa described the action in Extinction as “absolutely relentless” with a “fast, fluid feel.” You can get a taste of the game’s combat in the cinematic trailer above.

Iron Galaxy and publisher Maximum Games promise an “abundant” story campaign filled with a variety of side missions. As for Extinction’s combat, here’s how the announcement describes it:

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.

Extinction is slated for release sometime during Q1 2018. The game will be shown behind closed doors at E3 2017 which runs June 13-15.
