    Default Toxikk-Frag Like It's 99'

    http://toxikk.com/



    CLASSIC ARENA FPS ACTION
    FRAG LIKE IT'S 1999: TOXIKK plays as if today's military shooters never existed. The game combines the simple and intuitive mechanics of old-school FPS giants with a fresh setting, slick graphics and our vision to carefully evolve the genre with some new ideas elaborated with Arena-FPS enthusiasts.

    Designed as a spiritual successor to the fast paced arena shooters of the late 90s and early 2ks, there is no leveling, no skill-trees, 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. And if you want to practice your skills offline, TOXIKK also features a configurable BOT MODE.


    02. All players are equal. Always.
    After each death, you respawn with a melee weapon and a basic pistol. All other weapons are to be picked up while you play. Character customization is of cosmetic nature only.

    However, unlike the shooter giants from the past, TOXIKK features an XP and a bounty system. The XP system and its associated ranks are used for reputation purposes, for our match-making algorithms and to unlock new skins, but they do NOT change the stats or the abilities of your character. Your rank will show other players how experienced and skilled YOU are (rather than showing the experience level of your game character).


    03. TOXIKK IS NOT FREE-TO-PLAY
    We believe that "classic Arena-FPS" and "Free-to-Play" (F2P) don't go well together. 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. Allowing players to buy different (i.e. better) weapons or to permanently boost their stats does totally contradict the idea of classic arena FPS gaming in our opinion.


    04. CLASSIC AND MASSIVE MAPS
    CLASSIC MAPS offer very fast-paced gameplay in small to medium-sized maps for up to 8 players, while MASSIVE MAPS feature more strategic gameplay in bigger environments for up to 16 players. Vehicles (gliders, attack-bombers, hoverbikes and other ground vehicles) are exclusively available in Massive Maps.


    05. USER GENERATED CONTENT
    All registered players can apply for a FREE SDK to build own maps, characters and skins etc. for TOXIKK. We will put up a web page as a central hub for user generated content on TOXIKK.com. Players may vote user-generated content to be made available through this hub. All content on this hub will be offered free of charge. The whole process will be handled through our forums.


    06. EXLUSIVELY DESIGNED FOR PC
    We believe that shooters are meant to be played with mouse and keyboard. That's why TOXIKK is exclusively designed for PC. At this point, we do not intend to port the game to any other platform.


    07. Developed by Reakktor
    REAKKTOR may be a self-financed indie studio, but every team member brings at least a decade of experience in professional game development to the table and is dedicated to delivering a high quality experience.

    Breaking free from publisher concerns and features requested by the marketing guys, we decided to create this game for one single reason: WE WANT TO PLAY IT!

    If you believe in the Arena-FPS genre as much as we do, then we need your help: Leaving the traditional publisher/developer model behind, also means that we do not have the marketing budget it takes to spread the word on our own, as all our money (and passion) goes into building the game. So, please help us get the word out. Tell your friends about it and like us on FACEBOOK and other social networks. Also, hop over to the FORUM and tell us what you would like to see in TOXIKK. YOUR voice matters!

    Very UT like. - points for the vehicles though, no place for those in arena shooters, IMO.

    Looks great! I am still playing from time to time quake and the market really needs a new arena shooter
    But i am afraid if it's not free2play and has no big name like UT or Quake behind it, it will die off really fast because not enough people will try it or even hear about it.

    This will fade away fast just like any other new arena shooters.
    Nexuiz = Dead
    Shootmania = Dead
    Toxikk = Soon to be dead

    Market doesn't want arena shooters. It's just you, few individuals, that want them and sadly there are very little of you out there. There are probably couple more arena shooters I haven't mentioned but you get the gist of it.
    It'll probably be good while it lasts but it won't last long and then you start to question is it worth to waste your money and time on it.

    Looks amazing, but I have a feeling that it will just fade away after a few months. Quake with Q3, and Quake Live still the top dog

    too bad quake III disks don't install on anything newer than Xp, and the master servers are down aswell. the only reason quake live is as popular as it is, is because quake III is unplayable at this point in time.

    sorry marc but quake live still is alive (yes its a big name game its still a high paced arena shooter)
    on top of that, this game will be released on steam which will give the game its publicity
    the only thing i can forsee being in its way is the new unreal tournament which will be f2p with micro transactions (most likely for mutators and character models/skins)

    also game has high unreal vibe because you guessed it, unreal engine

    Quake Live is still going because it's Quake 3 just in a browser. Quake has always been popular and will continue to be.
    Sorry, nick, but Shootmania and Nexuiz were released on Steam too and had a very little lifespan despite the hype everyone built around them.
    Hell, Shootmania had a good amount of tournaments many big name Youtubers were promoting.
    Arena shooters is a dead genre and it may come back in the far future but not now. The old giants like Quake are still holding up because of the huge established playerbase back in the day but look at Quake Live even now. Despite the insane brand popularity, Quake Live, is poorly populated and being kept above water by veteran players and people who are completely dedicated to it and the goddamn game is Free-To-Play not 15$ like Toxikk.
