Second Extinction announced for Xbox Series X and Xbox One


Systemic Reaction, a creative division of Avalanche Studios Grouphas revealed their upcoming title Second Extinction with a reveal trailer during the Inside Xbox live stream event. Now, the upcoming title has been revealed with an upcoming beta later this year.

Set to take place on a dangerous, beautiful, yet frozen world, Second Extinction will see Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC players come together in hopes to reclaim earth from a mutated species of dinosaurs. Second Extinction will see players go through non-stop action, forcing squads to think fast, work together, and communicate the best they can in intense first-person missions.

“I’m very proud of what our team has created,” said Tobias Andersson, Managing Director at Systemic Reaction. “As a live game, we plan to support Second Extinction long-term, as we do with all our titles. We can’t wait for players to team up, start playing, and become part of our community.”

Second Extinction is the first title to be developed by Avalanche Studios’ Malmö, Sweden team. The team behind the game is a small 35-person team of talented developers, bringing together a game with fast, fluid, and graphically impressive elements, bringing to life what fans loved about Turok all those years ago.

“Second Extinction is a real passion project for our tight-knit team, and we’re just getting started. It’s incredible how far we’ve come in this short time, and I’m super excited to reveal more details, including our live roadmap, in the coming months,” added Brynley Gibson, Lead Producer at Systemic Reaction.
