Indie developer Reakktor Studios is bringing it back to the classics, with their upcoming Arena FPS game, Toxikk. Along with the announcement, a debut trailer was released, which asked to bring it back to the roots and “frag like its 1999.” Toxikk will be coming out exlusively for the PC, which will come to Steam Early Access later this year in Q4.
Play a game that is inspired by classic shooters from the late 90s and early 2ks, like Unreal Tournament and Quake, players will experience a sci-fi like themed gameplay. Other games that revolve around shooting, won’t apply in Toxikk, that means “no health regeneration, no perks, no cover systems, no classes, no configurable weapons and no iron aiming.”
In Toxikk, players will be able to control in a fast and precise movement, double jump, dodge jump, gain booster pick-ups, carry around nine iconic weapons, which the weapons have a secondary fire mode. You will also get to experience “vehicular game modes, jump pads, health-packs, lots of vertical gameplay, optional mutators, and everything else that made these kind of games so addictive.” Need some practice before you go out there in this classic Arena FPS game, take your training offline to gain skills in the configurable BOT-MODE.
“We believe that ‘classic Arena-FPS’ and ‘Free-to-Play’ (F2P) don’t go well together.” stated Reakktor studios. ”A true arena FPS requires all player characters to have equal stats and the availability of all weapons to everyone. Always! The skill of a player should be the only deciding factor about victory or defeat.”
Players will get to choose between classic and massive variant maps, where Classic will allow players to be in a map that is 8 players, while the Massive maps will allow players to be against in a map that contains up to sixteen players. There will be vehicles, and maps are able to be customized by the community for free.
