Rekoil opens fire on PC and Xbox 360 on January 28

505 Games and Plastic Piranha are releasing their built-for-eSports/classic throwback arena shooter, Rekoil, on January 28 for PC and Xbox 360.


Multiplayer shooters are about to go old-school once more. 505 Games and Plastic Piranha are ready to launch their homage to classic arena shooters later this month, after missing its initial fall release window. Rekoil will arrive on PC on January 28 and a day later on Xbox Live Arcade, where it will be dubbed Rekoil: Liberator.

Both versions of Rekoil will feature mass battles for up to 24 players with seven different game modes, ten maps, and 40 different weapons. There are no perks or prestiging or any of that newfangled nonsense, so players will be able to pick from those 40 weapons immediately. The PC version will also feature mod tools.

Rekoil will be available for $14.99. For more information about this gun-tastic throwback to the Counter-Strike era, check out our preview.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
