Extinction, the ogre-killing action extravaganza from Killer Instinct developer Iron Galaxy, has set a release date of April 10.
Alongside revealing the launch, publisher Modus Games has also revealed a Season Pass, called ‘Days of Dolorum’, although the features of the DLC packs have not yet been unveiled. The Season Pass will be included in the Deluxe Edition of the game, which, as usual, for retail for a slightly higher price than the standard version.
Furthermore, a series of pre-order bonuses have been revealed. Pre-orders made on the PlayStation Store, and Microsoft Store will include trials at an elevated difficulty. Best Buy is offering a trial that provides exclusive rewards for completing unique objectives, and GameStop pre-orders will grant players the time-constrained ‘Last Legs’ and ‘Heads, You Win’ trials.
Extinction puts players in the boots of Avil, the last of an ancient order trained in the skills to defeat the Ravenii, a race of giant ogres intent on exterminating humanity. The developers have previously released a video outlining some of the skills that players will make use of throughout their adventure, including slowing time or giving Avil the ability to jump higher.
The game will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. With this announcement, April is beginning to look a little packed, as Extinction joins Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire (April 3), and God of War and Nintendo Labo (April 20).
