Rekoil signs with Publisher 505 Games
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Indie Developer Plastic Piranha and 505 Games Put the Power Back in Gamers’ Hands With Rekoil
WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. – July 17, 2013 – 505 Games, a global publisher of video games, today announced an exciting new partnership with indie game developer Plastic Piranha to bring their mod-focused shooter Rekoil to Windows® PC and the Xbox Live® online entertainment network as an arcade game for the Xbox 360® games and entertainment system from Microsoft later this year.
Plastic Piranha, the development team behind Rekoil, is comprised of industry veterans and modding marvels and each team member has an unquenchable passion for creating titles that speak directly to the hearts of core gamers.
Already gathering a loyal following amongst hard core gamers, the eSports community and gaming media, 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. Rekoil is a shooter the way you want it.
Jason Brice, president and CEO, Plastic Piranha, said “We are truly honored 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, Re-Logic and Serellan over the last couple of years,” added Tim Woodley, Senior Vice President, Global Brand and Marketing, 505 Games. “We’re really excited to add Plastic Piranha to that list with Rekoil, which promises to deliver fast paced, thrill-a-minute competitive shooting with player choice at the center 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 kill streaks and other unfair advantages. From the fast moving Assault class, to the heavily armed and dangerous Heavy Gunner class, a player’s skill is always at the forefront.
