About This Game

What will YOU do to ensure the survival of the human race?

Jaws Of Extinction (JoE) is the first of a new generation of story-driven, singleplayer & multiplayer horror-survival games. Your story begins on a large open world island known as Eden-Nadir, a place renowned for its beauty and thriving wildlife. You will be faced with decisions you may or may not wish to make as you battle against terrifying infected and re-animated humans, the military, the island's wildlife, forces of nature, other players and your own conscience…

Begin by playing the prologue to the story as a single player tutorial (also available as a FREE Demo), then either in multiplayer or alone in single player. You can choose to continue following the storyline and discover the secrets of Eden-Nadir or carve your own path in the huge open-world, hand-crafted, sandbox environment.

Explore and claim Eden-Nadir’s vast landscape

From sweeping open lavender and corn fields to sun-dappled forests, murky swamps to beautiful seashores, deserted towns and fortified cities to quaint villages and picturesque countryside retreats. You can build, defend, hunt, fight, scavenge, loot, ambush… it’s up to you! How will you survive?
