Depth Of Extinction Available For Pre-Order

Traverse the lower depth with a crack team in turn-based RPG Depth of Extinction on the Switch next month.

Depth of Extinction is a turn-based RPG strategy that’s been heavily influenced by classic XCOM: Terror From The Deep and coming to the Switch next month.

If you haven’t played XCOM: Terror From The Deep, you’ll get the chance to play a variation of it to some degree as the lead developer at HOF Studios had this to say:

My favorite game from back then was Terror from the Deep and I essentially created Depth of Extinction as a spiritual remake of that game with modern gameplay mechanics from games like XCOM and FTL.

Mike Stumhofer, HOF Studios

Back in the day, I was quite fond of this and XCOM: UFO Defense.

In this modern take, you lead a crew to the lower depths to stop the impending armageddon, applying a turn-based strategy of stealth, head-on-combat and ambushes.

While keeping the gaming mechanics fresh for players new to the genre, the aesthetic choice is a retro one and almost triggered a flashback.

The visuals are great, and if it’s even remotely like the title it aims to emulate in some respects, this will be a winner.

Here are some of the features:

  • Explore a sunken world and build your own story
  • Familiar tactical options with a few new twists including action refunds, stealth positioning and ambushes
  • Create the ultimate squad from 10 different character classes including the brand new SABOTEUR
  • Outfit your team with 115 different weapons, armor, and items
  • Fight 30+ unique enemies from 5 factions
  • Position your team and then get the kill with stealth

Depth of Extinction is out on the Switch on the 4th June, the Xbox One gets it the day before and PlayStation 4 to be announced.
