New Features Trailer for Extinction

Maximum Games and developer Iron Galaxy Studios have revealed a new trailer for Extinction.

Featured above, the new trailer gives a nice overview of the main features in the giant-ogre slaying game.

Here’s a rundown on the game, via Maximum Games:


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.

Key Features

  • Deep Story Campaign. Protect the human population across an abundant story campaign, rescuing as many civilians as possible and taking down brutal opponents.
  • Dynamic Side Missions. Complete numerous side missions with various objectives, earning upgrades to aid you in your campaign.
  • Skill-Based Combat. 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.
  • Interactive Environment. Move freely around a fully destructible environment, and use objects throughout the world to your strategic advantage.
  • Innumerable Battle Scenarios. Every battlefield is different from the last, ensuring a unique combat situation each time you play.
  • Custom Battles. Create custom battlegrounds with varied objectives, and challenge players online to compete for the top score.
  • Extinction Mode. Fight off a continuous horde of assailants as wave after wave of ogres and their minions attack without relent.

Extinction is launching across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on April 10th.

    The industry is in a pretty sad state when no microtransactions is a selling feature. It works for me though, given that I won’t buy any game that has them.

    The combat and traversal look pretty good and he story seems interesting. My only worry is the escort/protection missions, which could get quite annoying.

    So you make them look like WoW orcs, but call them ogres to avoid getting sued by Blizzard-Activision?

  • Cubed Grapes

    Blizzard invented orcs?

    Much like Biomutant, this one looks like a proper game and not an interactive experience.

    You are confused, sir. These are OGRES. Not TITANS. Very different.
