'Depth of Extinction' Gets Release Date - Trailer

by Rainier on Sept. 21, 2018 @ 7:39 a.m. PDT

Inspired by XCOM 2 and FTL: Faster Than Light, Depth of Extinction is a turn-based strategy game that allows you to handpick fighters from a roster of hardened operatives to join your squad – then battle vicious factions and killer machines in defense of mankind.

Venture into a terrifying underwater world rife with violence in this complex, addictive strategy game with real permadeath and superb pixel art.

Thousands of years ago, an unknown calamity plunged civilization as we know it to the bottom of what is now a vast ocean. As the waters rose, those who survived the event formed a new society known as the “Creators” and rebuilt the human population – producing advanced technology to better suit their needs. However, as eons passed, the Creators faded from existence – leaving behind remnants of their civilization and their technology. 

With the seas more uncertain than ever, mankind has split into multiple factions – including “The Republic,” who used the machines left behind by the Creators and became the most stable faction while the others favored violence instead. However, these machines started to fail them – and the population grew wary of the future. With rumors of killer machines or worse in faraway seas, humanity’s only chance at survival is to venture out into the unknown.

Depth of Extinction’s engaging storyline is rich in detail – unfolding gradually through random encounters. For maximum tactical freedom, the game allows you to choose from 8 different classes (each with their own unique skills) and up to 115 different weapons, armor, and items. Think ahead – and think fast – to remain in one piece after each mission ...

Are you ready to take part in mankind’s last stand? If so, a word of warning: Depth of Extinction is not forgiving – and death is permanent!

Key Features:

  • Experience a deep storyline through random encounters and real permadeath.
  • Fight fire with fire in thrilling turn-based tactical battles.
  • Enjoy stunning pixel art that blends the old with the new. 
  • Choose from 8 different classes – each with their own unique skills.
  • Gear up with more than 115 different weapons, armor, and items

Depth of Extinction will be available starting September 27 through Steam, itch.io, GOG, and the Humble Store for $17.99 ( a 10% discount), then returning to its original $19.99 price on October 4.
