Extinction takes players back to where the game began, Earth, where they must contend with an “Element-infested, ravaged planet.”

It wouldn’t be Ark without crazy creatures roaming the place, and in this case, there are both organic and technological dangers. Players will be tasked with defeating gigantic Titans in order to “complete the Ark cycle” and save Earth.
