Our planet is dying, humanity is near its end, and artificially intelligent robots are growing more powerful in Evotinction, an upcoming third-person action-adventure game from Spikewave. What are we to do? Request the assistance of Doctor Lui, the Head of Research & Development at HERE.

Evotinction’s protagonist isn’t combat-ready, as Doctor Lui will need to lean on other skill sets like hacking and stealth to avoid the perilous reoccurrence of her death. Doesn't this sound like something we have experienced before? Something like Dead Space?

Sounds interesting, right? We couldn’t help but notice some similarities between Spikewave’s Evotinction and Tom Cruise’s Oblivion. But don’t worry, these two properties couldn’t be further from the same, as there are notable differences between the film and game. As such, science-fiction enthusiasts should find Evotinction to be a refreshing experience. It could be scientifically refreshing like Star Trek was in the 1960s.

Is Evotinction Coming Out In 2023?

Spikewave Games has confirmed that Evotinction will arrive in Spring 2023. However, they haven’t provided an official release date. Therefore, this timeframe is subject to change.

It’s expected that Evotinction will launch for a total price of EUR 49.99/GPB 39.99/CAD 64.99/USD 59.99. Unfortunately, we don’t have any word on the possibility of an Evotinction Special Edition. EarlyGame will keep you updated as Spikewave Games releases more information on Evotinction.

Game Setting, Story, And Everything We Know About Evotinction

Evotinction is centered around an infected AI System that’s been comprised. This caused innocent humans to die as AI Robots went rogue, but the Head of Research & Development at HERE won’t stand for these senseless murders. She’ll use combined skill sets of hacking and stealth to search this infected facility while looking for survivors. This is somewhat similar to an upcoming game named Atomic Heart. However, there are notable differences between Evotinction and Atomic Heart, as one game leans heavily towards actions & the other towards cybernetic hacking.

Spikewave Games has set Evotinction into the near future, and this will create an exciting dynamic that few IPs have explored. We’ll see the relationship between extinction and evolution as humanity advances technological advancements. This causes for the unexpected genetic altering of humanity, as quantum mechanics changed everything. But our greatest creations as a species can be destructive, and that’s what Evotinction explores, an unnatural relationship between the host and founder. Wouldn’t you turn on your creator if your purpose was to obey them purely?

Development on Evotinction started in 2016. Since then, Spikewave Games have added themes that explore our near-future dystopian setting. Therefore, realism associated with Evotinction could be greater than anyone expects. Ultimately, humanity is concerned about the advancement of artificial intelligence, and Evotinction explores the outcome of that fear.

What Will I Fight In Evotinction?

Evotinction is saturated with AI Robots that served humanity before becoming infected with the RED Virus. These robotic humanoids will become your most common opponent, as they regularly patrol the HERE Facility. However, additional enemies are around every corner. You will face advanced androids that are purposely built for murder. But guess what? There are ways to kill them, and this is how!

  • AI Manipulation Programs
  • Kaleidoscopic Hacking Skills
  • Stealth Mechanics and Combat
  • Remote Disabling of Security Systems

We recommend that anyone interested in Evotinction follow the gameplay guides, as you will struggle to remember all the hacking tools that Doctor Lui can use against her opponents. It's noted that Evotinction looks to be as complex as Horizon Forbidden West

Is Evotinction Coming To PS5 And PC?

Evotinction isn’t launching onto the Xbox Series X/S or Xbox One. Instead, Spikewave Games is making this upcoming title an exclusive for the PS5 and PC.

This isn’t surprising, as the PS5 and PC have an adult-oriented fanbase that will favor the hacking mechanics of Evotinction. Unfortunately, Spikewave Games hasn’t announced any special editions to launch for the PS5 or PC. But you can add this upcoming game to your Steam Wishlist today and patiently wait until it’s released in Spring 2023.

Is Evotinction Part Of PS+ Premium?

There haven’t been any announcements to suggest that Evotinction will launch onto the PS+ Game Pass. However, things could quickly change as Sony looks to beat Microsoft with their subscription service.

If Sony offered Spikewave Games a good payout, Evotinction could launch for free through PS+ Extra or Premium. Ultimately, we won’t know more until Sony or Spikewave Games makes an official announcement. EarlyGame will keep you updated as those reports are made.

Game Trailer

“It’s been five years, six months, and eleven days since we’ve settled here. Our ongoing mission: To build a self-sustainable, closed ecosystem that will guarantee humanity’s survival into the impossibly far future”.

This is what we’re told as the Evotinction gameplay trailer begins. This immediately sets the tone for what’s to come. As the announcer says, humanity's mightiest achievement has turned on its creators, and fear is settling throughout the HERE Facility. But can you save those survivors that remain? Only time will tell.
