It is always very exciting when a new idea pops up for triple A market. We have our indie games that offer us a wealth of new stories and mechanics but it’s very rare to see a video game company venture straight into the deep end.
Maximum Games and Iron Galaxy are doing just that with their announcement of Extinction. Which is not a zombie post apocalyptic survival like the name gives the connotation. Instead, it looks to be a high fantasy inspired from Attack on Titan. Not sure? Well here is the announcement trailer:
Details about Extinction have been revealed. The game looks to be story driven with humanity being at war with each other and only a specific order aware of the threat of 150ft ogres. The player is Avil, one of the last sentinels in the world with the abilities to stop these 150ft ogres.
The game promises to offer fast paced combat and a new way of battling huge creatures. Battlefields are different dependent on the location and the player will have to use the environment to their advantage.
It’s teased that we will see some game play footage at E3 this month and Extinction is set to release early 2018.
