Welcome to Second extinction.
We’re excited to bring you our Dinosaur Co-op Shooter to Xbox Game Preview and Xbox Game Pass! During our preview time, we’ll hear what you, the community, want and want from a game like ours. Please add your voice to ours discord Group; I’ve read every feedback that was entered on our feedback channels.
Since we were live on the PC for a short time, we have already identified some improvements and added them to the roadmap towards 1.0. The cross-play functionality is an important step that we want to release in September. This means that you can play with your PC friends and vice versa. Additionally, we offer a tutorial mission to bring new players on board at launch! Also on the agenda are new characters, new weapons, new equipment and more dinosaur mutations, as well as the coveted Horde mode.
As a team, we will look at reward and motivation systems in depth over the coming months. Are we giving out cool and useful things? Do you feel adequately rewarded for your efforts? Do you feel progressive and motivated to try new things? Killing these evil mutant dinosaurs is fun, but we want to make sure it makes sense, too.
The war effort is being expanded more robustly. For those unfamiliar with the war effort, it means a map with different threat levels in the area. A high level of threat means that the dinosaurs in this region are strong and heavy. Conversely, a low threat level means a much easier walk in the snow.
Twice a week – Mondays and Thursdays at 1:00 p.m. CEST (4:00 a.m. PT) – the map is updated based on the amount of research collected from the entire community and threat levels (increasing difficulty levels) assigned to each region. The dinosaurs are pushing back. So if everyone focuses their attention on an area of the map to lower the threat level, the dinosaurs will find a neglected region and raise their attention there, which then increases the threat level of the region. If you neglect a Threat Level 3 for too long, you will encounter an Emergence Event – an extreme region with battle-altering modifiers and boss-level battles.
With each update of the War Effort map, there is a rotation of activities linked to each threat level. As you build up the war effort, it means that with every change in the map and its threat levels, there will be more activity and events associated with it, so you will see new things every week. In addition to new contracts and exclusive cosmetics, each preseason also brings a number of new activities. Make sure you play during these times!
Turning to 1.0, when we have refined our systems and functions to our satisfaction ( yours and ours), we take our findings and apply them to a new biome with new missions and species. I can’t say much more as it’s far in the future, but rest assured, we’re working on adding new cards.
We’ll start with Xbox game previews at the beginning of Preseason 4. However, we will be introducing the Preseason 2 Contracts and Rewards to our Xbox One and Xbox Series X | players Make it available in Preseason 4 so you don’t miss out on the exclusive content. We’ll be making Preseason 3 content available for a limited time in a future season. We won’t leave any of our newly joined Extinction Elites behind.
I can’t wait to see you in our community!
Second Extinction ™ (Game Preview)
Systemic Response ™
This game is in the works. It may or may not change over time or be published as an end product. Only buy if you are familiar with the current status of the unfinished game. A NEW BREED OF BIG MAP MULTIPLAYER SHOOTER The goal is simple: reclaim earth. In Second Extinction, you and up to two friends compete against hordes of mutated dinosaurs. Attention solo players: Second Extinction was specially developed for squads. Only the strong will survive. PREVIEWING THE GAME IS JUST THE BEGINNING The goal of previewing games is also simple: work with our community to get the best game possible. We want to hear your feedback loud and clear and want our community to be an integral part of the development process. Still, there is a lot to do from day one: 4 heroes, 10 weapons (each with 5 upgrade levels) and 6 missions – plus some special side quests – in several regions of our large map. Join the war effort, create the future. Our mantra is that players win battles, communities win wars. Nowhere is this more true than in our War Effort function. Each region on our large map has a unique threat level. This threat level can be lowered if enough of our players have successfully completed their missions and activities. But the dinosaurs don’t rest either, and focus their efforts where you aren’t. Each week the church will see the fruits of their labor or feel the consequences of their incompetence. Let the threat level spiral out of control and you can expect a particularly harsh emergence event to be awaited. When you play Second Extinction, you’re not just getting another co-op shooter. You will accompany us on a journey as we shape the experience. Every feedback and mission that you play is important. So what are you waiting for? The battle to recapture the earth begins here.
