When you’ve got the likes of Remedy behind the story you are looking to tell, you know you’re pretty much on to a good thing. And with Smilegate Entertainment covering the online multiplayer angle, things pick up still. Bring the two together and throw in the power of Game Pass and you’ve got the groundwork for something that could well take down the world. CrossfireX, then.
Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and via Game Pass, CrossfireX from Smilegate and Remedy looks to tick a ton of boxes.
With the two companies adding in their own expertise – Remedy on the narrative, Smilegate on the online action – CrossfireX will look to deliver some fast paced first person shooting action to players, no matter what they are looking for.
It’s priced at the super low cost of £Free and hits Xbox after making a name for itself over in PC land, providing action that should well be suited to gamers of all skill levels. It throws us into a cinematic single player campaign that plays out in the middle of a global conflict between the world’s two most formidable private military factions – Global Risk and Black List – as elaborate episodic scenarios come to the fore.
If you’ve played any Remedy game previously – you know, Alan Wake or Control, perhaps – then you should know the quality that the team are aiming at. It’s this which will power the story based Operations campaign.
Throw in what Smilegate are sorting with the online side of things, and CrossfireX surely cannot fail.
“CrossfireX was built from the bottom up to give players a complete package that features rich cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes as well as a rollercoaster narrative ride in two immersive and cinematic single player campaigns told uniquely from both sides of the story in true Remedy style,” said Fred White, director of marketing & PR at Smilegate. “We are absolutely thrilled to be launching today and bringing the new CrossfireX adventures to Xbox players.”
So how do you get access to what is on offer? Well, CrossfireX comes to market for free and through Game Pass, but it hits the Xbox Store with a host of different bundles.
Then there’s the Founders Package for £12.49, adding the character of Knox, 500 CFP (the premium CrossfireX currency), a 7 day boost to your EXP and GP and a new weapon skin.
But there’s more and with the CrossfireX Ultimate Package for £24.99, you’ll get everything you will ever need – CrossfireX as a base game, the CrossfireX: Operation Catalyst addon, the similar CrossfireX: Operation Spectre expansion, the Premium Battle Pass Season 1 (also available for £8.39) and the GATLING GUN Gold Wing.
Then you’ve also got the CrossfireX: 54300 GP + 100 Crossfire points bundle for £66.99, and a whole ton of smaller CFP included packs.
You can also purchase the two campaigns – Operation Catalyst and Operation Spectre – for £8.39 each too.
