Earlier this year, Nexuiz launched on XBox Live Arcade, but for folks who may have missed it on that console, THQ has just released the game on Steam.
Arena shooters were kind of meant to be played on PC, although we did have a blast on the XBox 360 version of the game, don't get us wrong. In Nexuiz, players are spawned into a fast-paced, intense matchup where all weapons are pickups and various buffs known as Dynamic Mutators, which really change the experience in every match. Dynamic Mutators are powerups that change the way the match is progressing with things like showing your targets indicator at all times, spawning jetpacks, lowering the gravity in the Arena and more.
On top of the Mutators, Nexuiz boasts a really fun arsenal of weapons which are all pickups, spread throughout the map.
We'll be doing some hands-on videos with Nexuiz in the coming days, so if you're not quite ready to plunk down the required $9.99, stay tuned for that over on our YouTube page!
