TOXIKK – Classic Arena-FPS Action for PC

Indie developer Reakktor Studios has released a trailer for their upcoming game Toxikk. The game is a multiplayer shooter inspired by the games from the late 90s and early 2000s. What this means is there are no classes, cover systems, or anything of the fairly common elements in today’s multiplayer shooters. Instead Reakktor is promising an old-school experience with fast paced action that recalls games like Unreal Tournament. The aesthetic reminds me of a cross between Unreal Tournament, Tribes, and Halo, and I’ll be interested in seeing if the developer’s ideas can live up to the classics. Toxikk will launch on Steam Early Access sometime around the end of this year.

August 01, 2014 – HANOVER, GERMANY – Indie developer Reakktor Studios today revealed their upcoming back-to-the-roots Arena-FPS TOXIKK with the release of the project’s first trailer.

TOXIKK debut trailer on YouTube:

Inspired by the big shooters from the late 90s and early 2ks, the sci-fi/near-future themed game plays as if today’s military shooters never existed: There is no leveling, no regenerating health, no perks, no cover systems, no classes, no configurable weapons and no iron sight aiming.

Instead you get fast and precise movement (with deeply configurable mouse controls), double jumps, dodge jumps, booster pick-ups, nine iconic weapons to be carried around simultaneously, secondary fire modes for every weapon, vehicular game modes, jump pads, health-packs, lots of vertical gameplay, optional mutators (incl. instagib) and everything else that made these kind of games so addictive. The game also features a configurable BOT-MODE to let you train your skills offline.

TOXIKK is exclusively designed for PC and scheduled to launch via Early Access in Q4/2014.
