Targem Games and Gaijin Entertainment are announcing 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.
