>no leveling, no regenerating health, no perks, no cover systems, no classes, no configurable weapons, and no iron-sight aiming
>Toxikk allows for "fast and precise movement," thanks to "deeply configurable" mouse controls
>you will respawn with a melee weapon and basic pistol, nothing more
>Toxikk is a paid game, and you can pre-purchase a copy today from Reakktor for $15. Though free-to-play is a rising trend on PC, Reakktor wants nothing to do with this business model.
>"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
>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
>Reakktor is launching Toxikk all on its own, without a publisher. According to Reakktor, that means it does not have access to a marketing team to help promote the game. The developer hopes that fans will spread the word about Toxikk to make the game a success.

Buy.This.Game.

I cannot stress this enough.

I don't care one bit if it sucks, I don't care if you don't like it, I don't care if you don't want an arena shooter.

This game is literally giving the power back to the gamers, it is a developer creating something we have said we WANT, it has no marketing team, it does NOT sell out for money, the developer has an idea and principles and sticks to them.

BUY IT for gods sake, BUY IT so we can stop crappy marketing ideas, games created by execs who have never used their macbook pro for anything else than facebook chat, please /v/, buy it so we can save gaming by showing devs THIS is the way, even if this isn't the perfect game.

i said i wanted a good arena shooter though
>>
>>262490114
I really don't think there's any viral MARKETING, it's just a bunch of us trying to make this, as a cure for modern gaming, viral. Free of charge.

That's the whole point, modern games and strategies for marketing have made us all feel so paranoid, you'll all think I'm shilling here and not buy it out of spite.

But goddamnit, if a game proves successful without resorting to these strategies, it's a goddamn start....
>>
There have already been loads of arena shooters though, and they all died because people just play Quake. The trailer for this was kinda silly too, it didn't really say what it does do, it just named things from other game that it won't do. Aesthetically it looks like Halo, and does it really need vehicles? The name is pretty awful too, but I suppose that's subjective
>>
>>262490204
What's that you just said?

Good arena shooter you say?

But the guy in the black suit giving the powerpoint presentation says YOU want another CoD game.
>>
>>262489862
It's going to end like Strike Vector.

I'm not buying it because of all these poor viral marketing attempts :^)

>This game is literally giving the power back to the gamers, it is a developer creating something we have said we WANT, it has no marketing team, it does NOT sell out for money, the developer has an idea and principles and sticks to them.


15 dollars, 10 pounds, around 11 euros - the price for sticking it up the arse of the big video game devs and companies and shit.

That's kind of a silly angle. "So maybe it sucks, and maybe you don't even want to play it. But if you give them 15 bucks you're sticking it to the man!"

I don't really see how vehicles fit into classic arena shooters either

>>262490839

None of those are on the same level. Toxikk sounds like the handle of some kid on xbox live who makes dubstep montages of cod
>>
>>262490784
It's not sticking it to the man, it's 15 bucks for showing them how shit should be done. Honestly, I'm not saying donate the money, I'm just saying give this game 10 times the chance you'd give other games because of the message it gives.

>>262490815
>Not telling people to learn how to make video games and form teams to make games we want.

How's that going for you? Enjoying Destiny?

Only thing these people care about is money. The ONLY thing.

Here's the thing; it has all of those nice little bullet points to put on the box, but it won't actually be good. It'll have good intentions but will generally be very poorly tuned, and even outright buggy. It's like every no-name game that touts itself as a revival of some old giant.

>>262491147
I get yoú - I really do. But honestly, I'm not focused on the "back to oldschool" stuff.

I'm focused on the part where they don't do marketing, they don't sell on console just because it makes more money and they don't pander to the main demographic just because it gives them more money (face it, the main demographic for FPS games is 8-16). That's a huge leap to the right direction for gaming.

I, personally, don't really want this and feel like it's just going to be another Duke Nukem sort of failure. But the new UT will be released soon, with marketing and all the crap of modern games and I really want (even if its not going to happen) this to outsell it massively, so the next FPS thats made is made properly.
>>
>>262491146

>I WANT X VIDEO GAME
>NO YOU DON'T YOU WANT MONEY COS EVERYONE ONLY WANTS MONEY

What
A shit ton of developers want to make games. A lot don't want part time jobs because they don't want to struggle living alone as if they don't have a family to help them actually survive.

Toxic is
Toxikk isn't.

Nice bait though I replied

>>262490839

if it was just called Toxic you might have a point, but even then it's not a great name for an arena shooter unless it revolved around chemical warfare

>They don't sell on console just because it makes more money

No they don't sell on console because they don't stand a damn chance against Halo and CoD. On top of that they have to pay money to Microsoft/Sony for every unit shifted. On top of THAT, they have to buy an SDK.
>>
i might preorder once i see more gamepaly videos. theres just 1 debut trailer right now and its not enough to decide. also i kinda want to feel hitboxes/netcode first before deciding

>>262490968
thats still better than taking away FUN, which is what every other shooter nowadays is doing.
look how slow destiny is. fuckign goldeneye 64 had more action fast past combat than it


i'm not even mad even if this were viral marketing because this is only the 2nd thread i've seen in like a month. being told about the existence of a non AAA hyped game once a month doesnt seem very annoying compared to daily dragon age threads so idk what you guys keep goign on about

>>
So what happened to that arena FPS that was focused on esports or some shit? I keep forgetting its name
>>
>>262491726
They could easily sell out to a publisher and make dosh off consoles. The nostalgia bait alone has proven to sell well enough.

That's just my two cents though, you're perfectly right in saying there could be another point there.
>>
>>262491754

It stands for Beyond Heretic though.
It's the only one they picked out that isn't a noun yet is more apt than fucking Marathon

It's also mostly a singleplayer game, more so than Doom, and not a multiplayer game, it can have any proper noun it feels like because of that.
>>
I love /v/. You faggots will whine and complain about modern FPS's, then some guys come along and give you the exact fucking thing you ask for, and you take one look at it and immediately start pissing and shitting your pants. This board is in need of some ritualistic suicide.
>>
I don't mind not having to pay/grind for weapons, but I prefer customizable loadouts to Quake/Unreal style "All weapons show up everywhere on the map and you can hold all weapons at all times" things.

It forces people to specialize a bit more instead of being able to do everything, making things more strategic.

>>
I wish people would fuck off with trying to revitalize the arena shooter.

It was killed off YEARS ago by Counter Strike. And it has NEVER recovered and NEVER will.

Put the shit to rest. Please god stop trying to keep it alive somehow.
>>
>>262489862
>Buy.This.Game.
>I cannot stress this enough.
Nope. How many times have you heard a company doing something "good", following all the old rules and it just turns out shit?

Besides, I'm not into it. I'll just keep playing good ol' DOOM and stuff.
>>
>>262492097

That's alright but I like the idea of still being able to have at least one of the weapons of your choice when you spawn.
>>
It sounds neat. Like someone's trying to take the fun and frantic nature of arena shooter FFAs and introduce it to the new generation.
>>
>>262491996
If I get this game right, it's quite fast paced and you'll rarely be able to pick up more than 1-2 weapons per respawn.

Idk though, gotta see a trailer or demo first.
>>
>>262492006
Naw it was something else, I remember hearing about it years ago but never heard any more about it

It wasn't that CryEngine Nexuiz game either

This is why I'm glad video games are being completely ruined by Triple A shit, and the whole industry is going to collapse.

They reap the shit they sowed.

it's not like quake 3 stopped existing

the question remains however if this will end up being a step forward or a step backward for the arena shooter genre, and it's definitely not something i'm going to buy on impulse, so i'll just wait for a demo
>>
Good job OP. You managed to post a promising game in a dead genre that a lot of /v/ wanted in such a way that makes everyone that wants it look like shills.

>>262492297

Customizable loadouts are fine as long as everything is balanced. When you have two guns that are identical but one is gold and does more damage then it's a problem.

But if all the weapons are available to everyone to customize then it's fine. Whether you killed that guy with the rocket launcher you picked up or the rocket launcher you spawned with you used the same amount of skill.

Because they don't really mix with games. They're slow, painful, require locking the opponent in some place where they can't escape.

The main guy behind it is Carnevil, who worked on the Skulltag source port for Doom, and Bobby Prince is doing the music. I don't even know if there's intents to add multiplayer, but from what I played it's the next closest thing to a modern Doom. Still needs polish though, and there is an absence of hitscan enemies which takes away from the challenge

The whole "CLASSIC SHOOTERS" angle kinda rubs me the wrong way when it just looks like halo.

Still, I've bought worse things for $15 and it's refreshingly honest about what the fuck it actually is.

If we're using a gas it would be pretty simple to counter. Gas floats to the bottom, so create some holes for it to pour into. It was so effective in WW1 because it was deal with the gas in the trench, or run into MG nests.

A fortress can handle that shit a lot better.

>It forces people to specialize a bit more instead of being able to do everything, making things more strategic.
Except that's the exact opposite of what happens as that just forces the dev to balance the weapons against each other which in turn results in everyone running around with some sort of rifle with minor variations, while also achieving making map control useless. Good job, you just dumbed down your game. See: Any loadout shooter ever.

Halo principle is almost as bad, 2weapons still makes map control useless, as you just get the weapons you want and then just keep hunting down the enemy.

Here's how a strategic game would look like:
Each player customizes his set of weapons, 10 of them. Array of weapons is huge, each weapon works wildly different, like Quake, no similar weapons like UT.
Certain weapons can only go in certain slots, so you got 1 "Machine Gun" slot, 2 "Light Weapon" (Plasma, Shotgun,..), 2 Medium slots (Lightning, Grenade), 2 Heavy Slots, and one BFG slot.

During the game, the player spawns with melee and first weapon, and then has to pickup the other weapons. Pickups are the same for both players, the weapon you get is determined by your loadout.
>>
>>262494494
UT is on it, with free base game and royalties if you want to sell your mods.

Didn't really help Quake Live that much, only so many play it. Still, as long as UT4 won't hold back features with a freemium/premium model, I'm in.

>Modders making money

This is where it's weird. Supporting modders for theirs is cool and all, but I'd imagine there would be a lot of shit bloating up whatever market it would be on if it included smaller stuff. If putting a price on a mod is intended to be limited to larger things like entire content packs and total conversions for a small amount, then fair enough I guess.

Quake Live is more or less the same old game, but in browser. UT is gonna be new and shiny. The bloat will be no more of a problem than browsing steam workshop for maps or reskins only.

>Taking the arena fps back to its roots

Um what?
The only game currently doing that is Reflex which aims to use Q3CPMA as a template.
That is the real game we should be supporting. Not this viral trash.
Quake and Doom are the true roots of the Arena FPS, aswell as fps in general.

This is just a cheap Unreal Tournament imitation. With vehicles and shitty dodging mechanics.
I hate how we are now at a point where people who never played quake or unreal think they are the same thing.

its quality is irrelevant, it's a game with the same competitive draw (as far as sponsors are concerned, not mechanically, don't get your panties in a twist), made by the same company and using the same item/customization scheme
