Pre-Season 5 Features:

  • New Enemy -- Dasher Raptor: Fast and airborne, these new dinos ambush in groups for a deadly assault from all angles (Emergence Events only).
  • New Weapon -- Artillery Cannon: A precision-skill weapon for Enforcers, dealing high damage if you hit directly and smaller splash damage if your shots land too far away.
  • New Equipment -- Sticky Firecracker: Capable of staggering foes in an emergency.
  • Level cap raised from 25 to 50.
  • New cosmetic rewards.
  • New technical improvements, including support for gamepad remapping.
  • A wide variety of game balancing and fixes.

Second Extinction pits teams of up to three players against swarms of bloodthirsty dinos in fast-paced battles across Earth’s post-apocalyptic wastelands. Equip a range of uniquely powerful weapons and abilities and fight on your own or with friends against monstrous dinosaurs long thought extinct — now mutated and deadlier than ever! The War Effort is Second Extinction’s community-driven global metagame: by completing missions and activities, you’ll directly impact the threat level and challenges players around the world face.
