STOCKHOLM, August 12, 2020 — Systemic Reaction, a creative division of Avalanche Studios Group, has revealed that Second Extinction, the intense online co-op shooter in which teams of up to three players battle to reclaim Earth from mutated dinosaurs, will enter Steam Early Access for PC in September 2020.

"Our goal with early access is to craft a long-term experience that's fun and enjoyable for our players from day one," said Second Extinction Product Owner Julianne Harty. "With every update, we want to ensure the game is engaging and see what features resonate the most -- we're very eager to hear what the community has to say about where they want the game to go!"
Second Extinction delivers non-stop action, forcing players to think fast and shoot faster in quick but intense combat operations across a dangerous frozen world. Fight side by side with your friends against a variety of beastly predators long thought extinct — now mutated and deadlier than ever!
The heart of that battle is Second Extinction’s global metagame: theWar Effort. By slaying dinos, completing missions, and taking on additional activities around the world, players will impact the threat level designation and have a hand in deciding the level of challenges they'll face planetside. This constant wave of conflict will affect the kind of enemies, activities, rewards and more you’ll encounter in any given region.
“The War Effort reflects the changes in the ongoing fight against the dinosaurs and ensures you’ll always have to stay on your toes. It’s a highly interactive, community-driven environment for players to fight in, letting us create new content that evolves over time,” said Harty. “The War Effort is an integral part of how we’ll introduce new dinosaurs, missions, and more as a live service experience, and it’s a feature we’re excited to fully flesh out throughout early access.”
- Intense Three-player Co-op — Earth is overrun by mutated dinosaurs! Team up with up to two other resistance fighters to take it back in short but intense combat operations.
- Battle Mutated Monstrosities — These dinos are nothing like the ones in your history books! From electric raptors to behemoth T-Rexes that tower over the horizon, these deadly creatures have evolved into the ultimate killing machines.
- Experience Spectacular Action — Combine your fireteam’s unique weapons and abilities for explosive results against overwhelming opposition in challenging combat set pieces.
- Take Part in a Joint Effort — Your actions, together with the rest of the community, will shape the course of the war against the dinosaurs.
Second Extinction is available to wishlist now on Steam. It is also in development for Xbox Series X and Xbox One.
