June 11, 2020 – After months of stress-testing during its pre-registration period, third-person vehicle shooting game Crossout moves forward its Closed Beta Testing period with a content update on June 12. The Crossout Closed Beta update brings with it new content for players and news that will excite esports fans and content creators alike.
Developed by Targem Games and co-published by Gaijin Entertainment and PlayPark, Inc., Crossout combines gather-and-build mechanics from MMOs with the fast-paced gameplay of shooters for a unique competitive experience.
Crossout is set in the post-apocalyptic Wastelands, a lawless valley where survivors live by three words: Craft, ride, destroy. Players have to scavenge resources from missions in order to build guns and parts for their unique vehicles. There are many combinations for parts from tank threads to guns to armor that will allow you to build the ultimate war machine to blaze your way to victory.
Crossout Closed Beta Update: What to look out for
The official patch will feature improvements to overall gameplay, the Personal Playground area, and a battle pass system for the new season, Doomsday Cars. The Personal Playground will include interactive upgrades to your garage while the battle pass system is a paid account upgrade that will give players bigger and better rewards for completing specific challenges. The battle pass system also has unique items and skins that can be unlocked by ranking up the pass, allowing players to improve and customize their war machines.
Crossout Closed Beta Update: Crossout esports is coming!
While these features will be available to all players regardless of play modes, PlayPark Inc. has not forgotten the competitive aspect of the game. With official esports partners Mineski, TNC, WomboXCombo, and CollabAsia, Crossout is set to be the newest esports title to excite both professional players and fans in Southeast Asia. Watch out for local and regional online tournaments from Crossout and PlayPark Inc.!
The Factions want more Survivors to stream!
However on the livestreaming front, the game has partnered with Peenoise Realm for content-packed with gameplay, memes, and fun. But it doesn’t stop there. Crossout is still on the lookout for streamers and content creators to share this adrenaline-fueled game to their audiences. For those who wish to sign up, send a DM to the PlayPark Crossout Facebook Page.
Craft powerful parts
Crafting is a big part of Crossout, as a way to gain more powerful upgrades to weapons, armor, and other parts. These items can be made or salvaged, and have different rarities to them. Common parts can be easily crafted but provide baseline stats, while Legendary and Relic items are very difficult to craft (or find as a drop), but have the highest damage or benefits to stats in the game for its class. Ride into missions to get blueprints and materials required for the parts and craft your way to victory.
Ride your custom machine into battle
Vehicles in Crossout have power scores to determine their fitness for battle. Players will also see the vehicle’s Durability or how much damage it can soak up before being destroyed. Another stat to consider is Energy, a resource that powers the vehicle’s movement and weapons. Finally, Tonnage determines how much parts your vehicle can hold. If the weight of the parts exceeds Tonnage, you’ll get a Speed and Acceleration penalty, hindering your vehicle’s agility on the battlefield.
Destroy everything that stands in your way
Crossout has different game modes players can join to keep the action fresh. Missions are the primary game type, where teams of eight players fight on the battlefield for resources. Raids are a pure PvE experience, where players can do “test runs” of their machines against AI-controlled enemies. Each Raid has a set of objectives and players must work together to ride into victory. Brawls are PvP events that change every day, from Races (guns are disabled), Free For All (first to 10 kills), and Storm Warning (a Free For All variant with a powerful environmental hazard). Crossout also features Guild vs Guild battle modes for valuable Uranium, and finally, a Battle Royale mode where you find parts and weapons for your vehicle while out-riding and out-destroying other wasteland survivors.
