Second Extinction is a 3-player, online co-op shooter in which players team up to reclaim Earth from mutated dinosaurs.

Second Extinction offers non-stop action, forcing players to think fast and shoot faster in short but intense combat operations across a beautiful yet dangerous frozen world.

Teamwork is vital as you adopt the role of one of the survivors, using a unique combination of weapons, abilities and skills to take on the vast number of enemies. Fight through a maelstrom of bullets, bombs, teeth, claws and gore, it's up to you to reclaim Earth!

Made by a small group of 35 talented developers from 15 different countries, Second Extinction is the first title developed by the division’s team in Malmö, Sweden. The game offers players fast and fluid combat as they fight side by side against a wide variety of beastly predators long thought extinct — now mutated and deadlier than ever!

Second Extinction will be available on Steam Early Access for PC on Oct. 13, 2020, for $24.99.

Here’s what players can expect in early access:

  • Day One: 4 Heroes, 10 Weapons with 5 upgrade tiers, and 6 missions across 7 regions
  • In the future: 
    • Loadout modifiers -- party buffs for each mission
    • Armor Augments 
    • Timed game modes, including a horde mode
    • An additional mutation and related effects
    • And much more!

Starting soon after the launch of early access, there will be free updates featuring new weapons, difficulty settings, dinosaur mutations, new War Effort emergence events and more!

Content and features are categorized by how close they are to becoming a reality. This leaves room for you, the community, to influence what we work on and prioritize. We can’t wait to let you get your hands on Second Extinction and join us in the fight to reclaim earth.

Key Features:

  • Intense Three-player Co-op Earth is overrun by mutated dinosaurs! Team up with up to two other resistance fighters to take it back in short but intense combat operations.
  • Battle Mutated Monstrosities — These dinos are nothing like the ones in your history books! From electric raptors to behemoth T-Rexes that tower over the horizon, these deadly creatures have evolved into the ultimate killing machines.
  • Experience Spectacular Action — Combine your fireteam’s unique weapons and abilities for explosive results against overwhelming opposition in challenging combat set pieces.
  • Take Part in a Joint Effort — Your actions, together with the rest of the community, will shape the course of the war against the dinosaurs.

Second Extinction is currently in development for Xbox One and PC, with an Xbox Series X version to follow in 2021.
