Targem Games and Gaijin Entertainment announce they will launch their post-apocalyptic free-to-play Action MMOG Crossout on May 30, 2017 for PC.

About Crossout

Crossout is set in 2047 after a mysterious viral epidemic known as the ‘Crossout’ which has laid waste to most of the population on Earth. The road warriors that survived must now battle for precious resources using deadly vehicles crafted from millions of possible permutations (body shape, armor, weapons, support systems and cosmetic enhancements).

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.

In Crossout, games are fast with heavy action. Road warriors craft death dealing vehicles that suit their preferred style of play. Complete customization, without classes or patterns make for thousands and thousands of options. Combine parts and resources to create advanced technology, trade or sell at the in-game marketplace with other players, road warriors get to choose how to build the perfect killing machine. Advanced damage modeling affects vehicle performance. Parts fly off, engine blocks explode, wheels and roofs tear away and vehicles 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.

What’s Coming to Crossout after Closed Beta

The launch of Crossout will introduce several new features including the military-inspired Steppenwolves as the game’s fifth faction. Players can expect a surplus of new weapons of mass destruction such as player guided rockets and wheeled combat drones (mini-cars with advanced firepower). Survivors will be able to try out enormous mechanical legs - an advanced way of traversing on the battlefield.  Players can expect new modes including a racing mode, maps as well as advanced cabins and other exclusive parts to craft death-dealing machines.

  • Overgrowth Review

    Overgrowth, while fun for a while, misses the mark for a captivating story or combat. The world feels uninviting and dead, giving off the feel of a game from the early 2000’s when the processing power of hardware was much more limiting. The combat is fast-paced and fun, but it lacks depth and eventually goes stale. The story that ties it all together feels loose and lacks impact, each character blends into another and consequently prevents the player from connecting at a deeper level. The title does shine for the first hour or two, but it quickly loses its flair.

  • Road Redemption Review

    The updated graphics and physics engine are sure to bring enjoyment and laughs. Road Redemption builds on a relatively simple concept that has worked in the past, repackages it, and allows the unpredictability of other players a large selection of tracks, bikes, and riders in online death races to round out a uniquely enjoyable experience.

    Raiders of the Broken Planet just isn’t there yet. While an alpha build of the title showed promise, the title has much development ground to cover yet. Raiders of the Broken Planet isn’t half-baked: it barely got into the oven before players were encouraged to start eating the dough.

  • Absolver Review

    The moments I did have a good time were few and far inbetween, often overlooked and bogged down by repetitious fights and long periods of grinding out moves and experience. The glitches I experienced were numerous, but thankfully Sloclap is aware of most of these problems and is releasing patches to help eliminate them, while also adding new features. If you’re looking for crazy flashy combos and special moves, this isn’t the title for you. While Absolver is a fighting game, it’s a far cry from the likes of Street Fighter, Tekken, or Injustice. With many moves grounded in reality, or at least inspired by them, Absolver’s combat system still requires strategy, but even moreso patience — a quality for which many do not play fighting games.

  • Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite Review

    Regardless of the complaints, Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite proves to earn its place in the powerful series laid out before it. Furthermore, the genre of 2D fighters is a very familiar concept, with a rich history and a dense family of games taking after it. Often, these games can seem too generic to stand out or to feel worthy of any time given, but conversely, many of these games try too hard to make something of themselves, and result in a game far too complex and clunky to be enjoyed in any way. Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite, however, treads this line perfectly and offers an engaging experience born out of a classic style.

  • Prime Arena Preview

    Prime Arena as it stands today is a fantastic taste of what a game it truly could be. It has stunning potential if it can fully deliver on the brilliant concept, but for now, it is falling short. That being said, it is only in alpha testing stages still, and the developers are very active in seeking out feedback from their community to better the game. In the period of time it has taken to write this review, strong changes have already been seen, improving the game drastically in real time. Prime Arena may only be in its early stages, but it is constantly evolving, and is more than worth keeping an eye on.
