This is a quick post, but I just enjoyed the game quite a bit so I thought I’d share the love with you people.
Extraction was at Pax 2013 and its gameplay mixes points of contention with team based tactics whether you’re setting up traps or hacking a node. Oh yeh, and it’s free to play… or at least it will be when it launches!
You can think of it as a different looking TF2, if you will. They’ve got different class types to choose from and even a medic (with no healing beam though). One of the classes I liked the most in TF2 was the medic and it’s pretty fun in Extraction as well because you can also revive your fallen comrades. Granted you have to stand still for a few seconds… and that got me killed, but it’s still cool. They also have a class (who’s name I can’t remember) that can give out ammo packs (holy crap, that was essential!) Also for those that like them, they also have a sniper class that I can play just as poorly as the snipers in TF2 (can’t win them all).
