505 Games today announced a new partnership with indie game developer Plastic Piranha to bring their mod-focused shooter Rekoil to Windows PC and the Xbox 360 later this year . Rekoil is a multiplayer FPS set in a world devastated by an unrelenting pandemic with a focus on support for modding, customizable servers, and esports.
Jason Brice, president and CEO, Plastic Piranha, said “We are truly honoured to be joining the team at 505. With a history of amazing titles such as Sniper Elite V2 and Terraria, an upcoming slate of great games like PAYDAY 2 and Brothers – A Tale of Two Sons, and a focus on indie teams like Serellan’s TAKEDOWN: Red Sabre and now Plastic Piranha, we are very proud and excited to be a part of the 505 family,” .
”The team here at 505 Games are really proud of the relationships we’ve forged with independent developers such as Starbreeze Studios, Relogic and Serellan over the last couple of years” added Tim Woodley, Senior Vice President of Brand & Marketing for 505 Games “and we’re really excited to add Plastic Piranha to that list with Rekoil; which promises to delivery fast paced, thrill-a-minute competitive shooting with player choice at the heart of the experience”
“For us, joining the 505 stable was a no brainer, the team at 505 truly backed our ideas and vision for Rekoil, and we feel that our team has delivered a hugely entertaining game, but we wanted to join the most indie friendly publisher in the industry today and in our mind, that is 505. I look forward to seeing everyone running and gunning,” said Kevin Dent, Minister of Chaos, Plastic Piranha.
Rekoil is focused entirely on balanced, infantry-based combat across numerous locations without killstreaks and other unfair advantages.
