With Quake Live now finally available on Steam
, the first-person rail shooter genre is starting to make a real comeback. Utilising that surge, developer Reakktor Studios has debuted a new gameplay trailer for their own rail shooter, Toxikk.
The three-minute trailer distills Toxikk's hardass ethos: no regenerating health, no loadouts and, like a teacher on Saturday, no classes. It also introduces the difference between the "Classic Maps" the game will offer, which are smaller and don't have vehicles; and "Massive Maps" which are larger and do.
Development of Toxikk is so far being funded with pre-orders, in packages that range from $5 to $90. Reakktor plans to put Toxikk into a closed beta through Steam Early Access sometime in the last three months of this year.
