First-person shooter Toxikk wants to frag like it's 1999


10:45 AM on 08.01.2014



First-person shooters have come a long way since we called them "DOOM clones" back in the nineties. After Halo, Call of Duty, and Gears of War, most have class-based gameplay, role-playing game elements, regenerating health, cover systems, and/or ironsight aiming. Toxikk from Reakktor Studios (kkool naming kkonvention bro) wants to return to the genre's roots.

The trailer above does a good job demonstrating Toxikk's mission statement (including a great bait and switch regarding free-to-play). Without any of the more recent trappings of the first-person shooter genre, it looks to be fast-paced with a good amount of verticality. Removing the need to reload seems like such a strange concept today, but what really takes it back in time is the ability to hold every weapon at once. Rad.

Toxikk is planned as a PC release, and will hit Steam Early Access this winter. Since it is designed with mouse and keyboard in mind, Reakktor has no plans to release on consoles.

Review: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare: Havoc

Call of Duty map packs are definitely a mixed bag. Fifteen dollars is pricey by any standards, and the prospect of one or two remade maps and a grand total of four arenas isn't anything to get excited about. Advanced Warfare's new Havoc DLC has just arrived this week on Xbox platforms, and it's par for the course in terms of what you'd expect. As usual though, zombies save the day.more
