Independent developer Plastic Piranha has struck a deal with 505 Games to deliver Rekoil, a new multiplatform shooter with a strong community focus.

According to GameInformer, Rekoil is designed with an eSports bent keeping it focused purely on skill – there will be no killstreaks or vehicles.

Plastic Piranha wants modding to be a significant part of the experience, and has vowed to deliver community-made content to console gamers via DLC packs for both PC and Xbox 360.

Little else is known about the shooter except that it is set in – sigh – a world ravaged by plague. Disease is the new zombies, I tell you. Soon we’ll cycle back around to nuclear fallout.

Expect Rekoil later this year.
