Extinction Platform(s): PS4, Xbox One, PC
Release date: April 10, 2018The classic David and Goliath story has been modernized in some wildly popular ways, from the Attack on Titan anime (and its many tie-in games) to the timeless Shadow of the Colossus. Extinction is hoping to join that pantheon of human-versus-giant greatness, featuring a Sentinel named Avll who takes on skysc*censored*r-sized ogres known as Ravenii, cutting them down to size before they can completely level helpless villages. Combat takes place on the small and large scale, as you need to clear out waves of regular-sized orcs and flying gargoyles before you start chopping whole limbs off the hulking Ravenii (who have toenails bigger than your entire body). When you're not swinging your blade, you'll be making leaps and bounds around the terrain with your acrobatic movement, and the environments are fully destructible so you can really see the kind of damage these giants can do.
