Enjoying the free-to-play post-apocalyptic MMO that is Crossout but need an edge on the battlefield? The Iron Shield Pack is here!
Priced up at £44.99, the Crossout Iron Shield Pack on Xbox One brings you a new and unique armoured car – the Mark EX, equipped with two frontal machine guns, the chance to add unique and epically rare Goliath tracks, the Lieutenant Mitchell hero portrait, the Soloman’s Pattern paint can, a Dogs of War sticker, the chance to increase your maximum parts used to 55 and no less than 3400 in-game coins.
Now, should you have delved into the wonderfully murky world of Crossout with the free-to-play base game, but wish to take things to the next level then spending £44.99 for the privlege doesn’t seem overly bad. Yes, it would be great if it were a little cheaper, and yes we’d like to see a bit more content included for the cash, but once you are bitten by the Crossout bug, there is very little letting go and many will no doubt see the Iron Shield Pack as a worthwhile investment.
If you are one of those and wish to see new vehicles and weaponry added to your game then get over to the Microsoft Store right now.
Unique armored car: Mark EX. Weapons: Two frontal machine guns ‘ST-M23 Defender’ and an epic turret cannon ZS-34 ‘Fat Man’. Unique tracks: Goliath track of epic rarity. Unique hero portrait: Lieutenant Mitchell; A unique paint can: Solomon’s pattern; Increases the maximum number of parts used to 55. Unique Sticker: Dogs of War; 3400 in-game coins. A repaired and modified model of the first tank used in combat operations. True, this machine was never on the battlefield — it got stuck in the swamp and never reached the intended position. But that’s why the tank survived and later became a proud museum exhibit, which was taken care of by more than one generation of wardens. The last of them, Mitchell, was very pedantic in his work with the machine and kept it working right up to the very catastrophe. And in these tragic days for mankind the painstaking work of the warden paid off handsomely when Mitchell hid his family in the tank’s cabin and rode it out of the chaotic agony of the city. For some time the family wandered through the wild Wasteland and eventually settled in the Valley. Old man Mitchell made several trips to the cities on his faithful Mark EX, and died right behind its levers, after a successful rescue expedition. Impressed with his grandfather’s example, young Mitchell put on an old helmet, hiding his face and continued his work. Lieutenant Mitchell has been taking civilians out of combat zones for several decades. He never attacks first, but quickly suppresses any attempts to stop him. Unique tracks: Goliath of epic rarity. People have invented similar tracks during their first global war with each other. Now they are used in the current, less global war. When mounted, severely limit the car’s maximum speed. Each mounted track reduces the cabin’s power. Unique armored vehicles presented in packs, are particularly well-balanced in their weapons, armor quality and speed in combat. To put the car in the garage, launch the game, open the blueprints menu (“B” key ), go to the “Packs” tab, select the required armored car and click the “Load” button. When you buy this pack, the number of parts that can be used to create the vehicles increases to 55. Also, the purchase of the pack gives the player early access to some structural details of the factions. These parts become available immediately upon purchase and are not re-issued once the appropriate reputation level is reached. Some parts can only be in a single copy. When purchasing multiple packs, such items are not duplicated. Unique portraits are a great opportunity to stand out among the survivors. Paint cans are a way to make your armored car unlike the others. Coins are an in-game currency, that is used in the market for purchasing armored vehicle parts from other users and for paying rent for the part-producing faction workshops. Attention! When purchasing multiple packs, the coins stack!
