Nexuiz began life as a free-to-play arena first person shooter back in 2005. Now, developer Illfonic and publisher THQ have brought it to the Xbox Live Arcade as part of this year’s XBLA House Party. So if you’re prepared to spend 800 Microsoft Points ($10), you can “Toga! Toga! Toga!” with Nexuiz today:
For centuries the Kavussari and the Forsellians have waged war. They have a fragile truce but due to their seething disgust of each other they still pit their warriors against each other in arenas rather than on the fields of war. Those episodes of lethal combat are now broadcast throughout the galaxy, as entertainment… a spectacle known as… The Nexuiz Competition: An arena based first person shooter where you can alter the rules of the match and laws of physics while you dominate opponents in ever-changing hostile environments bleeding with hatred.
And don’t forget, if you purchase all four House Party titles, you’ll receive a rebate of 800 Microsoft Points ($10).
