Second Extinction looks like a mix of Turok & Doom in the trailer
Dinosaur: In Ark we ride them, in Jurassic World: Evolution we cherish them, in Second Extinction … we cause them to die out. At least if we play successfully. After all, we ourselves claim to be the ruling species on earth.
In the upcoming co-op shooter Second Extinction, dinosaurs have conquered the earth a second time. We grab two friends with huge guns and fight the beasts to get our world back.
Systemic Reaction, a new Swedish studio by generation zero and just cause developer Avalanche, is responsible for Second Extinction.
Second Extinction does not have a release date yet, it does exist on Steam a closed beta in summer 2020 instead of. If you are interested, you can apply for participation on the official website.
What is Second Extinction about?
The introduction trailer gives a good impression of what a game Second Extinction wants to be. The focus is on fast shooter action and the visually impressive mutant dinosaurs, as well as the screenshots next to the trailer:

The Steam description gives an overview of the core features. Second Extinction is therefore a "cooperative first-person shooter for three players, in which your goal is to exterminate the mutant dinosaurs that have conquered the world."
- Instanced missions: Instead of an open game world, players are sent on "short but compelling guerrilla missions."
- Teamplay comes first: Working with your two teammates is particularly important. Each of the three roles has class-specific skills and weapons that can be particularly powerful when combined correctly.
- Waves of dinosaurs attack: In Second Extinction you have to survive against hordes of dinosaurs. They come in all colors and shapes and also have mutations: there are electrical raptors and oversized T-Rex.
