'Cross Fire' Gets Content Update, 20% Off Item Sale

by Rainier on Nov. 27, 2009 @ 7:28 a.m. PST

In Cross Fire, two international mercenary forces corporations are at war. Players assume the role of either a Black List mercenary or a Global Risk terrorist, and join an online team that must work together to succeed in completing objective-based scenarios.

Participants assume the roles of online characters that interact with other players while engaging in battle and other activities through multiple levels. New to this genre, is the revenue model whereby the game is free to download and play, but players purchase value-added, in-game services and assets, along with premium features that enhance the game experience. Cross Fire is the role model of a first person shooter game with stable and powerful action as well as a strategic battle map. The game boasts sophisticated graphics and a unique system which allows the game to run smoothly even on low-end PCs.

With two international mercenary forces corporations at war, players assume the role of either a Black Risk mercenary or Global Risk terrorist, and join an online team that must work together to win certain objective-based scenarios. There are four modes of play in the game including Team Death Match, Exploder Match, Elimination Match and Ghost Match. Upon successful completion of these exciting and competitive modes and matches, players earn experience points and achievements which advance their character up various military ranks.

Team Death Match is the meat and potatoes of the multiplayer first-person shooter. In this mode, two teams fight to the death with the number of kills separating the winners from the losers. Cross Fire will feature 8 on 8 team death matches across 6 unique locales including, a cursed Egyptian tomb, an abandoned railway station, and a speedway in Monaco. Players can assemble a team of their friends using Cross Fire’s integrated Friends Lists, or create a clan using Cross Fire’s clan formation system and gain notoriety as your clan ascends up the online ranks.

The update includes a new Search and Destroy map, three new weapons, limited time Thanksgiving-themed items, and a major anti-hack update.

The new content is available free of charge via a patch update and the new weapons can be won with in-game currency via the Cross Fire Black Market. Also, in honor of Black Friday, G4BOX has put all Cross Fire items in the Z8Games Item Mall on sale at 20% off starting November 27th at 5PM EST and ending November 29th at 11:59PM EST.

Just in time for the Thanksgiving weekend, Cross Fire and G4BOX have released an exciting new free update! The patch, which is available now, features the all-new Search and Destroy map, "Downtown", a sprawling urban environment in which players must race to defend or destroy key strategic positions throughout the city. The update also includes three new weapons: the classic Winchester Rifle, a Thompson SMG and an M16 Scope-Camo. Each of these weapons is available via Black Market GP crates, purchased for free with Cross Fire in-game currency. Finally, in honor of the Thanksgiving holiday, players will find a Turkey helmet and Turkey backpack available through the Z8Games Item Mall. These two limited-time items will be sold separately or as part of a bundle at a special price. All of these updates come in addition to a major upgrade to Cross Fire's anti-hack protection.

Also, in the tradition of Black Friday, and as a special thank you to the ever-expanding Cross Fire community, all Cross Fire items in the Z8Games Item Mall are on sale at 20% off. The sale will begin November 27th 2009 at 5PM EST and will end on November 29th 2009 at 11:59PM EST.
