Ever since Iron Galaxy Studios announced Extinction for PC, PS4, and Xbox One last June, they have been teasing elements of the game’s story, but have not delved into it fully. That changed today though; as part of the lead up until launch, a new story-focused trailer was released.

In the world of Extinction, the ogres, known as the Ravenii, are ancient evil creatures that many didn’t think were even real until they re-emerged and began attacking their world. An order of warriors called the Sentinels fought the Ravenii when they first appeared, but have all been wiped out with the exception of the protagonist, Avil, who works with both Xandra and King Yarrow to fight back.

Outside of the story, this trailer also gives us a look at some of the game’s hand-drawn cutscenes. If you want to see more gameplay, you can check out a previously released trailer.

You can check out the new story trailer below. Extinction is currently set to release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on April 10.
