Extinction Rifts

QUByte Interactive today announced Extinction Rifts, a new boomer shooter for Switch. It will be available in the second half of 2024.

Extinction Rifts, which is inspired by classic titles and with graphic style of the original PlayStation, sees your power of destruction increasing as you shoot enemies and destroy objects. Fighting adds energy to your special glove that can take out all enemies in an entire stage with a single punch.

Here’s some additional information:

In a dystopian future, mysterious monoliths have suddenly appeared on planet earth, causing fear and doubt. Humanity, fearful of the origin and power of these artifacts, began to debate what should be done, always inclined to destroy them.

However, a paramilitary terrorist group called New World has taken possession of five of the monoliths around the world in order to use their supposed powers for their cause: the selective extinction of the human race!

It’s now up to you, armed with a super-powerful item, the Adreno-Gauntlet, to locate all the monoliths and destroy them completely to ensure the survival of the planet!

In Extinction Rifts, an enormous amount of power is required to destroy the monoliths and only the Adreno-Gauntlet is capable of doing it. Can you destroy them all and avoid extinction?

Key Features

  • Fast-paced combat and arcade gameplay,
  • FPS mechanics combined with time and energy management,
  • Secrets scattered throughout the stages,
  • Special abilities and different weapons,
  • The “Extinction Punch”: a powerful punch capable of destroying an entire level and completing the stage immediately,
  • High replayability with player rankings, weapon unlocks and new abilities,
  • Multiple endings,
  • Special filter for pixelated visuals,
  • Play your way: it’s possible to finish the game even without using your super powerful punch.

Lead artist Marcel Bernardi said today: “We always wanted to make an ironic game with a certain acid humor in the best style of classics like Duke Nukem and Shadow Warrior. Extinction Rifts has that tone as the message it carries is that we want to destroy what we don’t understand because we think it’s always a threat. After more than 14 years developing and publishing games and specializing in retro games, curiously, this is our first authorial FPS.”
