Extinction looks like a Western version of Attack on Titan
A gameplay demo for Extinction was finally revealed at E3 this week and it looks…. very familiar.
Players must destroy the armor on the ogres to gain points which eventually allow them to perform the killing blow. The killing blow is a slice to the back of the neck obviously.
As a result, this game looks very similar to the popular Attack on Titan anime and game. However, there are some minor differences which could make this game worth a try. The more difficult ogres feature stronger armor which takes more effort to destroy and as a result, this game looks like it could be be more difficult than Attack on Titan: Wings of Freedom.
Players will be able to run along and up walls, glide through the sky and use a grapple hook to move between buildings and targets.
Almost everything about this game looks very similar to Attack on Titan and it’s difficult to tell if this is a good or bad thing. On the one hand, there’s not enough games of this style and it taps into the same niche. But on the other, it could almost be called a ‘clone’ game which will be enough for some players to give this one a miss.
We don’t know too many details about this game yet but the ogres certainly look fantastic. Extinction will be releasing for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in Early 2018. There is no release date yet but it’s possible to pre-order the game already.
