Frenetic first-person dino-shooter Second Extinction is due to leave Xbox Game Preview this October, developer Systemic Reaction has announced. Offering hordes of prehistoric beasties to blast, Second Extinction pits your 3-player squad against a variety of species, two of which will be new to the upcoming full v1.0 release.
When the game launches in full this October, a new map and biome will double the game's area, offering a new savannah environment with new missions and activities, while a new flying species of dino will join two new mutations to the existing roster of toothsome enemies.
An overhauled progression system will also raise the level cap from 50 to 99, while adding an “expanded difficulty spectrum”, and refined weapon upgrade system featuring perks and more customisation options. Second Extinction's War Effort metagame and its contracts system will be revised, too, alongside new cosmetic rewards.
Free-roaming and hot joining will enable players to start missions or join active games from within the map, negating the need to leave the session, and allow you to store resources and switch loadouts from bunkers scattered across Second Extinction's world. The user interface, overall user experience, and onboarding will be refined, to boot.
Second Extinction is due leave Game Preview and release in full for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC on 20th October 2022.
