Iron Galaxy's Extinction Flirts With An Attack On Titan Vibe

From fighting games to… something completely different.

Developer Iron Galaxy Studios has spent many years working on other folks' games. Iron Galaxy is the current shepherd of Microsoft's Killer Instinct, but the studio has also helped out with Elder Scrolls Online, Batman: Arkham Knight, and Borderlands: The Handsome Collection. Today marks another milestone, with Iron Galaxy announcing their next original title: Extinction.

Extinction's cinematic trailer outlines an expansive action game pitting a lone soldier against hordes of ogres and smaller demons. With the mobile nature of our hero, the huge stature of his final foe, and the walled town, one could be forgiven for saying that the game recalls the popular anime and manga hit Attack on Titan.

Here's the game's official synopsis.

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.

Iron Galaxy is promising a full story campaign, a fully destructible environment, parkour-style combat, "dynamic" side missions, and the endless Extinction mode, where the hordes continue to batter your defenses until you die.

Extinction is launching on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in the first quarter of 2018. Maximum Games is handling the publishing duties for the title. The game will be shown off at E3 2017.
