'Crossout' (ALL) Halloween Update Adds In-Game Event, New Map And More

by Rainier on Oct. 19, 2017 @ 1:44 p.m. PDT

Set in a post-apocalyptic world devastated by an alien invasion and human genetic testing gone awry, Crossout is a new team based multiplayer vehicle combat game.

Crossout tests players’ creativity in building, upgrading and customizing deadly armored vehicles to destroy enemies in open player vs player combat.

No two vehicles in Crossout are the same, as players can create any kind of combat vehicle from the speediest buggy to the heaviest of off-road vehicles to reflect their warrior sense of gameplay. Offering complete customization, Crossout gives players thousands of possibilities to design their vehicle, including shape, armor, weapons, support systems and, cosmetic enhancements. Visit your own garage to build new advanced mechanisms and sell them via the in-game auction system. 

Players also have multiple options when it comes to mass destruction - combat vehicles can be equipped with an explosive range of weapons from chainsaws, power drills and machine guns, to rocket launchers, flying drones and stealth generators. Featuring an advanced damage model, destroy any part of an enemy machine and it will affect that vehicle's performance.

The Halloween season has already begun in Crossout, the post-apocalyptic Action MMO. From October 19 through November 9, players will be able to wage battle on the all-new night map Sector EX, compete in the new ‘Witch Hunt’ PvP mode, and earn ‘Hazardous Sweets’ that can be traded for exclusive seasonal vehicle decor.

In ‘Witch Hunt’, players have to attain festive Halloween Pumpalloons and keep them in their possession for as long as possible. All participants are equipped with an identical, unarmed vehicle and can steal the Pumpalloons by ramming the current possessor. Even without conventional weaponry, ‘Witch Hunt’ is anything but peaceful. All vehicles come equipped with six powerful Jet Boosters that provide an explosive burst of speed to ram your opponent when attempting to loosen an opponent's grip on the precious Pumpalloons. There is no reason to hold back - in this mode, respawns with new vehicles are unlimited.

Halloween also brings with it the first night map added to Crossout - Sector EX - where survivors fight for control over an abandoned industrial complex located at the center of the map. While the defenders will be able to take positions on multiple floors of the complex, attackers can find their way inside through a maze of corridors and driveways. With darkness limiting the view, combat on Sector EX gets up close and personal - even for heavy trucks with long-range armament.

During the next three weeks, victories in all Crossout PvP modes and the completion of daily tasks will earn players an extra reward in the form of ‘Hazardous Sweets’. While not fit for human consumption, they are useful to craft ‘Fright Containers’ through which survivors can obtain exclusive decorative items for their vehicles, as well as paints, car horns and player avatars. Those survivors that place no importance on appearance can, of course, sell the ‘Hazardous Sweets’ for profit on the market.

Key Features:

  • Unique vehicles, crafted by the players using a wide range of available parts: from nimble buggies to heavily tracked off-road vehicles or combat platforms on antigrav fields.
  • Complete freedom of creativity and thousands of possible combinations. Create vehicles of any shape using dozens of parts, wide variety of armour and weapons as well as support systems.
  • Advanced damage model: destroy any part of an enemy machine and it will affect the vehicle's performance immediately.
  • Huge arsenal of weapons. From chain saws, power-drills over machine guns to rocket launchers, flying drones and stealth generators.
  • Your own workshop: create new, advanced parts and auction them at the in-game marketplace.
  • Trading options between players: every piece that you have gethered in the battle can be sold to other players
  • Choose your own battle strategy! The only thing matters is the Survival and Victory!

Crossout is now available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
