Extinction official artwork and logo

Given the popularity of Attack on Titan it should come as no surprise to hear that there is now a third-party game inspired by the concept. In Extinction you will fight massive Ogres and their minions across the countryside or within city walls, attack from both ground and air, and use a dynamic combat system to tactically disarm an dismember your enemies. In other words its Attack on Titan with a bit of a twist, but since this type of concept has yet to be perfected in video game form I have absolutely no qualms with Iron Galaxy attempting to copy it.

If you're wondering what this might look like in gameplay terms I'm afraid you're going to have to wait for a little while, but I can show you the recently posted cinematic trailer. It'll at least give you a good idea of what kind of atmosphere and action Extinction is going for. Have a look:

Besides the fact that there will be a story campaign with side-missions and an optional survival mode there is unfortunately not much information available. With the release date set for 2018 and E3 just around the corner, however, I have a feeling we'll be getting more details soon, so make sure to keep an eye on the official website over the coming weeks. And finally, allow me to send you off with a couple of images that came with the announcement itself:
