During the May 2020 Inside Xbox livestream, Microsoft revealed a trailer for a rather peculiar, but intriguing-looking Xbox Series X game: Second Extinction. Developed by Systemic Reaction, Second Extinction is a co-op shooter where you hunt down mutant dinosaurs.
Watch the Second Extinction Announcement Trailer:
The trailer showed a hostile snowy world filled with raptor-like beasts, being mowed down by soldiers with heavy firepower. The tagline invites you to “reclaim Earth.”
A release date was not announced, but a PC closed beta is slated to begin this summer, which you can sign-up for here. Microsoft announced that Second Extinction would support Smart Delivery, so whether you buy the game for Xbox One or Xbox Series X, you’ll be able to play it on both consoles.
