There’s a new free-to-play title heading towards our consoles and this one blends some high octane action MMO gameplay with the ability to customise vehicles. That, to us, is making the best of both worlds!
Due for release on Xbox One, PS4 and PC come May 30th 2017, Crossout will be the next free-to-play console title. Targem Games and Gaijin Entertainment have set Crossout in 2047 after a mysterious viral epidemic known as the ‘Crossout’ has laid waste to most of the population on Earth. The road warriors that survived (ie, YOU!), must now battle for precious resources using deadly vehicles crafted from millions of possible permutations, letting you amend body shapes, armor, weapons, support systems and cosmetic enhancements.
You can expect fast and heavy action as you create vehicles to your own liking. Parts and resources can be traded or sold with other players and that will just enhance the opportunities available in order to get the perfect killing machine you want. Advanced damage modeling will completely affect vehicle performance, as parts fly off, engine blocks explode, wheels and roofs tear away and vehicles pretty much vaporize.
In Crossout, road warriors have the freedom to strategically build their own stockpile of combat vehicles from the ground up using hundreds of parts earned through victorious combats, crafting and trading. Every choice, every weapon, every part brings with it pros and cons, and brings warriors one step closer to victory, or defeat.
“Crossout blends high-octane MMO gameplay with the unique ability to customize vehicles. In the Closed Beta, our players have crafted vehicles we never imagined possible, terrifying in design and deadly in their execution. They have designed hundreds of thousands of never before seen machines, and more than 65,000 of them have issued blueprints for road warriors to emulate. We cannot wait to see what they craft when we launch the game on PC and consoles,” said Stanislav Skorb, CEO, Targem Games.
The full launch of Crossout will also introduce several new features including the military-inspired Steppenwolves as the fifth faction in-game. There will be a surplus of new weapons of mass destruction, player guided rockets and wheeled combat drones (mini-cars with advanced firepower), all available. Alongside that, survivors will be able to try out enormous mechanical legs – an advanced way of traversing on the battlefield.
If you’re a PS4 player, then you may be interested to hear that a couple of exclusive Crossout Founders bundles are available to purchase and those will give you early access to the game.
