Inspired by classic titles and with graphic style of the first PlayStation console, Extinction Rifts is a boomer shooter that pays homage to the golden age of the genre and brings new gameplay elements.

Extinction Rifts is a fast-paced FPS where you get stronger as your combo increases! You will battle your way through secret enemy headquarters and destroy the Ancient Monoliths with your devastating gauntlet!

In a dystopian future, mysterious monoliths have suddenly appeared on planet earth, causing fear and doubt. Humanity, fearful of the origin and power of these artifacts, began to debate what should be done, always inclined to destroy them.

However, a paramilitary terrorist group called New World has taken possession of five of the monoliths around the world in order to use their supposed powers for their cause: the selective extinction of the human race!

It's now up to you, armed with a super-powerful item, the Adreno-Gauntlet, to locate all the monoliths and destroy them completely to ensure the survival of the planet!

In Extinction Rifts, an enormous amount of power is required to destroy the monoliths and only the Adreno-Gauntlet is capable of doing it. Can you destroy them all and avoid extinction?

"We always wanted to make an ironic game with a certain acid humor in the best style of classics like Duke Nukem and Shadow WarriorExtinction Rifts has that tone as the message it carries is that we want to destroy what we don't understand because we think it's always a threat. After more than 14 years developing and publishing games and specializing in retro games, curiously, this is our first authorial FPS," said QUByte’s Lead Artist Marcel Bernardi.

Key Features:

  • Fast-paced combat and arcade gameplay,
