'Crossout' (ALL) v0.10.50 Update Adds Story Campaign, New Map, Victory Day Special Event And More

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.


Targem Games and Gaijin Entertainment  announced the release of Update 0.10.50 for the post-apocalyptic online action game CROSSOUT, which, among other new features, includes a new story campaign called ‘Contagion’ and the new ‘Sandy Gulf’ map for PvP encounters. There’s also a special event dedicated to VE Day, where players clash in battle in post-apocalyptic replicas of the archaic T-34 tank.

The game’s Adventure mode, which sees players explore a vast, open map and fulfil quests and missions, has been expanded with the new ‘Contagion’ story arc. Playable both solo and cooperatively, the new campaign pits players against a mysterious, mind-twisting machine, capable of turning friends into enemies. The ‘Adventure’ mode is open for all players that have reached at least level 3 with the starter faction (which a new account can achieve in about 15 minutes), and more stories, missions, quests, enemies and locations are set to be added in the future.

A massive container ship, split in half and seemingly rusting for centuries, is the centerpiece of the new Sandy Gulf map for PvP encounters. It offers plenty of opportunities for ambushes and several, scenic sniper spots, but the brunt of combat will happen in close proximity to the wreck - a great opportunity for melee-centered vehicles.

This update also includes a special brawl event dedicated to Victory in Europe day. In ‘Spring Mayhem’, players will fight in  a unique tracked vehicle, the ‘Risen’, which is a homage to the famous T-34 tank of the WWII-era. It features a single ballistic cannon - something quite unusual in the modern world of Crossout - but has otherwise seen various adaptations making it blend in well with the visual style of post-apocalyptic earth. Winners of the brawl will receive various bonuses, including exclusive decorations for their vehicles.

The Spring Mayhem will be available from April 30 to May 13 on PC and from May 8 to May 22 on consoles.

Players who would like to use the ‘Risen’ tank separately from the brawl can purchase the ‘Fresh Blood’ pack, which includes the tank, a set of rare components and funny decorations. Offering a good mix of firepower, survivability and speed, it’s the perfect vehicle to dive into the harsh world of Crossout for the first time - and survive!

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.
