The Rekoil game will be out soon, with a January 28 release date on Steam and a January 29 release date for the Xbox Games Store.

The game is $10.49 for those who pre-order for Steam, and it will be $14.99 after release.

Rekoil is a multiplayer first person shooter game that drops players into levels with full access to over 40 weapons, instead of building up the weapons cache over time. Mass battles can include up to 24 players, and there will be 10 maps when the game launches.
