New Animated Trailer Reveals the Lore of Extinction

Extinction

Iron Galaxy has today shared new lore details about the upcoming title Extinction via a short, animated trailer.

The trailer outlines the history of the Sentinels, a group of mystical warriors that once fought against the gigantic monsters known as Ravenii. With the Sentinels thought to be long gone, and their existence reduced to stories and legends, a new hero Avil will take up the mantle of Sentinel.

Thus far, Avil has been the sole focus of the other gameplay reveals but the new trailer teases some of the other characters players may come into contact with. A young woman, revealed to be named Xandra, narrates the trailer giving hints at her past enslavement and eventual encounter with Avil. An aged man can also be seen in the trailer alongside Avil wearing similar garbs possibly hinting towards the revival of the Sentinel order or his passing down of the Sentinel teachings.

The humans must adapt and learn how to use the Ravenii’s technology against them or risk losing the final human kingdom of Dolorum, and all of its people, to the besieging goliaths.

Extinction will be released on April 10, 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. For all the latest on Extinction and much more from the world of single-player gaming, be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

Troy Baker has spoken about his return to the role of Joel in Naughty Dog’s upcoming title The Last of Us Part II.

During an exclusive interview with OnlySP at Supanova Comic Con & Gaming, Baker was asked how he felt to return to the role alongside Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie in the sequel to the acclaimed 2013 title.

“The first day we were on set was when we shot [the PSX reveal] trailer,” Baker revealed. “We go through rehearsals and stuff, and we walk through it, and things get real serious all of a sudden, when we heard both of our voices. When you put everything together, that’s when Ashley goes away and Troy goes away, and you’re left with Ellie and Joel.”

Baker noted that the first time creative director Neil Druckmann spoke to him about the potential of a sequel was during the British Academy Video Game Awards in March 2014.

Check out a clip from our exclusive interview with Troy Baker and Nolan North—including the revelation of North’s return as David and the significant musical numbers featured in the game—above, and stay tuned for the full interview.

Druckmann recently revealed that Baker and Johnson had completed their main work on the game, describing it as “the most ambitious cinematic shoot we’ve ever done.” Before that, he stated that the final scene of The Last of Us Part II has been shot, with Laura Bailey recently completing her performance capture for the title. Druckmann also revealed that the rapper Logic and actor Travis Willingham will also be appearing in the game.

Earlier this month, a screen of the game’s weapon upgrade system was leaked in a promotional video, with some noting that weapon variation may be present in the game’s revision of combat.
