Extinction is a fantasy-themed action game developed by Iron Galaxy Studios and published by Maximum Games. It puts the player into the shoes of Avil, one of the world’s last Sentinels, who is tasked with protecting humanity from hordes of bloodthirsty 150-feet-tall ogres known as Ravenii. The game features dynamic, skill-based combat, with Avil being able to use his whip for vertical movements and swoop over his giant enemies to expose their weak points.
In addition to the story campaign and side missions, the game also offers Skirmish and Extinction modes. In the former, players create their own battlegrounds and compete online for the highest score, whereas in the latter they face continuous waves of assailants and battle for survival.
