Depth of Extinction is a newly released turn-based tactics RPG that's all about exploring an underwater world filled with randomized storylines and missions, as well as engaging in XCOM 2 styled combat should anything ever do something as silly as stand in your way. As far as your loyal soldiers are concerned, you will be able to choose from 10 different classes, each of which come with their own unique skillset which you can then further enhance through a variety of armor and weapons.

It's a rather familiar concept, but if you're curious about how Depth of Extinction manages to translate all of it into gameplay, allow me to share with you the recently posted launch trailer. Have a look, it's a fairly short video:

I haven't had the time to play it myself, so as always take the following with a few grains of salt, but from what I can figure out Depth of Extinction is a fairly niche game. The reason this is the case is because in Depth of Extinction you'll spend the vast majority of your time either customizing your characters for combat, or just fighting with them so you can get even more items to mess around with. There appears to be very little else going on, so unless you're a big fan of turn-based tactics games, you might just find yourself getting overwhelmed by the repetition.

If that little bit of warning doesn't scare you off, you should head on over to either the official website or Steam to learn more. Have fun!
