Iron Galaxy, probably best known as the developers of the Killer Instinct series of fighting games, have announced a new “fast-paced action game” called Extinction. The game is expected to come out in early 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the PC.
In Extinction, you play as Avil, a soldier who has to fights an army of giant ogres and other assorted monsters. “Each player’s experience will be varied, as the landscapes and battle situations are never identical,” said Derek Neal, an executive producer at Maximum Games, who are the publisher for Extinction. The game will feature a campaign mode, an online battle mode, and a “wave-based survival mode.”
Extinction seems like it will be a pretty intense game, and while the Killer Instinct series hasn’t been as memorable as other violent fighting games, they seem like they might have something good on their hands here. The game will be showcased at E3, although it will be done behind closed doors, so good luck getting a peek at it.
