Extinction's Second Gameplay Walkthrough from E3

By Kevin Tavore, 11 months ago
Only two weeks ago Iron Galaxy announced their latest title, Extinction. The game then hit E3, with a full gameplay walkthrough on Monday. But that wasn't all Iron Galaxy has in store for us and they've brought another walkthrough from a different perspective. This time, executive producer Derek Neal walks us through exactly what makes the combat tick. You'll need to artfully dodge attacks while targeting specific pieces of armor all while using your mobility to move around freely.


The concept behind Extinction's combat is simple enough. Build up enough energy to deliver attacks devastating enough to kill a towering ogre. To build up this energy, you'll need to do everything. Attack and kill smaller minions. Dodge attacks. Use your mobility to scale walls and enemies. Shatter armor of the ogres, and save civilians. Once you're strong enough, you'll be able to use your newfound strength to kill your foe. You can see it in action against a basic ogre and a more complicated one in the video below.

During the video's closing, Neal makes it clear that there's more to come. Extinction is a complete game and as such it will have a story-driven campaign, side quests, daily quests and more. It's coming to Xbox One in early 2018.
