Reclaim Earth from the dinosaurs next month.

The intense 3-player dinosaur-hunting first-person-shooter Second Extinction is nearing an Early Access release. Players will be able to reclaim Earth from mutated dinosaurs when Second Extinction releases onto Early Access next month.

Second Extinction takes place in a world where mutated dinosaurs have overrun the planet. Teams of 3 players will take on the role of the three resistance fighters, each with their own unique combonations of weapons and skills, and fight of the hordes. The dinosaurs player will fight aren't the everyday Jurassic Park types. These mutants include such specimins as electric raptors, raptors that launch globs of acid, and behomoth t-rexes that tower over the resistance fighters. The Steam page also hints at a form of meta-game where "your actions, together with the rest of the community, will shape the course of the war against the dinosaurs."

The Early Access trailer took great pride in talking about how the Apex engine allows the team to shape the game's terrain with an impressive level of detail, as well as its ability to fill the screen with "emergent physics-based action." Senior producer Brynley Gibson said that this means that "no two dismembered raptors ever look the same as the sail through the air" and every action and explosion will feel unique. The team at Systemic Reaction, true to their name, is all about creating moments that get players to react, and they're looking forward to working with the community to shape Second Extinction as it enters Early Access.

Second Extinction is releasing via Early Access on Steam next month. Versions for the Xbox One and Xbox Series X will arrive later this year.
