Iron Galaxy and Modus Games have released a new trailer for their upcoming action-adventure, Extinction. The trailer, which you can and should view below, details some of the story and features of the game.
In Extinction, mankind has been at war with iself when a giant portal opens up and brings a threat to Dolorum. Players take on the role of Avil, the last member of the ancient order called Sentinels who are the only ones capable of defeating the massive Ravenii.
If you hate microtransactions in premium games, good news! The first thing this trailer tells us is that Extinction does not have microtransactions.
From the press release:
Known for their work on fighting games, Iron Galaxy has applied their expertise to the action-adventure genre. Avil has a wide variety of skills and attacks he can execute on the horde of minions trailing in the wake of each Ravenii. Players can cancel into almost any attack they want at any time, switching seamlessly between single strikes, sweeping area of effect (AOE) attacks, knocking enemies into the sky for an aerial combo, and more.
Avil’s key to permanently eliminating the Ravenii is the Rune Strike. This wicked attack can be used to dismember the massive ogres, and can be further powered up by saving people, killing Jackals, destroying Ravenii armor, dismembering the Ravenii themselves, and accomplishing objectives within each mission. One fell swoop is all Avil needs to stop a Ravenii, but these giant beasts won’t make it easy.
Gameplay and Strategy
All of the options Avil has when traveling through the city, he can also use on Ravenii, such as running vertically up a surface or using his whip to grapple to new heights. There are many types of Ravenii, each with their own attacks, armor and weapon combinations, and behaviors. Avil will need to overcome the challenge of climbing up the massive monsters, removing their armor, avoiding spikes and other obstacles that might hurt him, while also dodging the giant’s attacks long enough to perform a devastating Rune Strike and decapitate the Ravenii. Prioritizing competing objectives with the threat of civilians dying and towns being destroyed is what will truly test the skills of the player.
Extinction releases on April 10th for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. You can pre-order now.
