'Crossout' (ALL) Will Be Adding 7th Faction, The Firestarters

by Rainier on Jan. 23, 2018 @ 8:31 a.m. PST

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.

Scheduled for release with the next content Update 0.9.0, Crossout players can already try their hands on some Firestarters’ parts. Beginning 23 January, the in-game event ‘Hot Spot’ allows players to collect a temporary resource - ‘Lighters’ - which can be exchanged for decorative items, car parts and weapons of the Firestarters ahead of their release.

The Firestarters are a religious sect who worship fire. Their post-apocalyptic shamans pretend to have mystical powers, though they prefer to use guns in battle. Their arsenal includes powerful weapons, like catapults firing incendiary bombs and new, destructive flamethrowers, among many others. Causing destruction with fire is their favorite occupation, and they will gladly preach to both their followers and enemies alike.

One of the most exciting weapons of the Firestarters that players can already obtain is the player demanded Harpoon gun that allows players to hook on to enemies, allies, and even the surrounding environment. Players can carry a broken-down ally out of enemy fire, pull an enemy vehicle into their own chainsaws, or lower themselves down from a bridge to shell whoever’s passing below. The possibilities are endless!

Other items that can be obtained include the ‘Shiv’, a spiked wheel that will be the new favorite of survivors that enjoy a close quarter fight. The new ‘Bat’ cabin is ideally suited for a balanced, medium-sized vehicle built to carry Firestarter equipment, like the new ‘Junkbow’ shotgun, the most powerful of its class available in game.

The ‘Hot Spot’ event gives players the opportunity to be among the first to try out the new Firestarter equipment, and is great opportunity to make profit on the in-game market by selling Firestarter parts and equipment to other players.

The event is open to all Crossout players. Be prepared, it’s going to be hot!

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.

  • Choose your own battle strategy! The only thing matters is the Survival and Victory!
