Vehicular MMO “Crossout” Gets New Map, Story Arc

Targem Games and Gaijin Entertainment have released a big new update for their post-apocalyptic vehicular MMO, Crossout.

The new update features the Sandy Gulf map for PVP battles, and the Contagion story arc for the game’s Adventure mode. You can check out a trailer for the update above, and read more about it here.

The Spring Mayhem Event is also about to begin. This event features a special brawl dedicated to VE Day where players will get to drive the Risen, a T-34 tank that has been given the wasteland treatment to fit into the game’s aesthetic and world.

The tank can be bought permanently in the Fresh Blood pack, which will make it useable in other modes. Spring Mayhem runs from April 30th to May 13th on PC, and May 8th to May 22nd on consoles.

Here’s a rundown of the game:

  • CROSSOUT – The Road to Apocalypse

In 2027 a mysterious viral epidemic known as the ‘Crossout’ swept the planet, countries and populations simultaneously began to fall at an alarming rate all over the Earth. Those who did not die in the first few days, were plagued by hallucinations and headaches, many people went mad, others and committed suicide. The source of the disease could not be detected but the cities that were once the vibrant social and economic beacons of humanity were left ravaged and deserted.
Survivors gradually began to change — after fifteen years of transformation, the changes became visible. The most noticeable metamorphosis occurred in the eyes of the affected — some began to glow, while others resembled black holes. To hide their unnatural looks and conceal the mutation, people started wearing padded clothing and sunglasses.

Twenty years have passed after ‘Crossout’. Humans still remember their life before the disaster. As always, there are groups trying to recover the old world, while others enjoy the chaos and destruction. But there are those who are not human any more. They hide their faces behind masks, and their motives are unknown.

Crossout is currently in open beta on Windows PC (via Steam), PS4, and Xbox One.
