is soon to be one of four titles included in this February's House Party promotion
on Xbox LIVE. The first-person arena shooter has been re-made with the Crytek 3 engine specifically for consoles. Featuring a mutator system, players can change the rules of the game. Team Deathmatch and Capture the Flag will be the two game modes included in the game at launch.
Players will take on the roles of either the Kavussari or the Forsellians. The two races have been at war for many centuries, but they entered into treaties with the Herald Accord who oversees peace and unity between different cultures across the galaxy. The seething hatred between the two races never disappeared though, and new members of each race threatened to spread war across the galaxy once again. The Kavussari and Forsellians were given a choice: face total annihilation, or pit your warriors against each other in a specially-made arena. The Nexuiz, a series of battle arenas across the planets of Kavussari, Forsellian and Atavirta, was born.
Here are the latest screenshots for the title showcasing some of the arenas with which players will undoubtedly become familiar:
Illfonic has promised that new game modes, models, and maps will be released as DLC after the game has been released. Further details on these are not available.
The exact release date for Nexuiz
is currently unknown. The House Party promotion begins on February 15th, but the order of the games has not been confirmed.
