Well, there’s been a lot of news I didn’t think I would cover this year, and a spiritual successor to Dino Crisis was one of them. Instinction promises a return to the genre that made Dino Crisis a fan favorite, with tons of dinosaurs mixed with survival game mechanics. Hashbane Interactive is the team behind this resurrection (although they should’ve learned from Jurassic Park bringing back dinosaurs is a bad idea), and told us in a press release that we will, “Slay terrifying prehistoric creatures in this semi-open world epic, with immersive combat and exploration in multiple awe inspiring natural locations, all while solving puzzles and completing campaigns.” The rest of the press release is below!
AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND – FEBRUARY 13, 2021 — Hashbane Interactive revealed Instinction in what is to be one of the most anticipated action-adventure survival horror games, with dinosaurs, lots of dinosaurs!

Watch the Instinction Teaser:
“We wanted what many gamers wanted, a modern take on an age old cult classic, a dinosaur survival game with modern mechanics and a compelling story, after 20 years waiting we had no choice but to make one ourselves, and it had to be amazing so as to pay homage to the original, with full mod support for the community!”
