Extinction is Attack on Titan but with ogres

Posted on June 2, 2017

Iron Galaxy and Maximum Games have announced a new game, Extinction, set to launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC during Q1 2018.

The trailer depicts giant enemies known as the Ravenii attacking a city, reminiscent of the opening scenes of popular anime Attack on Titan. In Extinction, you’ll fight massive ogres and their minions across a sprawling countryside, defending cities and rescuing native villagers torn from their homes. The game boasts a dynamic skill-based combat system that allows to disarm and dismember your foes in bloody fashion.

Extinction will feature a deep story campaign, dynamic side-missions, along with a fully destructible environment that you can use to your advantage in combat. You can also create your own custom battlegrounds with varied objectives, and there’s even a horde mode to boot, where wave after wave of enemies will come at you relentlessly.

“Extinction is absolutely relentless,” said Kraig Kujawa, Game Director at Iron Galaxy. “We’re really happy with the fast, fluid feel of the game and we’re looking forward to showing it behind closed doors at E3.”

“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.

We’re certainly excited to learn more about Extinction at E3 in a couple of weeks. The game is expected to launch during Q1 2018; in the meantime, you can check out more information at the official website.
