Crossout’s open beta (and soft launch) is here today

It’s time for everyone to build their own post-apocalyptic death cars and drive them about a wasteland whilst shooting at one another. Yes, Crossout has moved into its open beta phase after one last server wipe, and that means all players can congregate to build impressive machines of doom and pit them against one another. If your favorite part of Mad Max: Fury Road was watching vehicles fight one another… well, here’s an entire game of that. You’re welcome.

Players who have been testing the game up to this point will also receive some free swag along the way, since the developers appreciate the patience and feedback of said testers. But everyone can dive in, start building, and start shooting. You can even watch the so-called “launch trailer” just below, which just through its title seems to support the idea that this is really a soft launch for the game.

I installed the game and gave it a whirl. The first night, I was almost ready to give up after about 15 minutes, because I thought it was dull, despite being able to design your own car. But we’d just spent 7 hours digging up fence posts and setting new ones, and I was exhausted. I figured I just wasn’t in the mood for it and I should give it a little longer on another day.

Last night I jumped in with my husband and played a handful of matches, and I ended up having fun. The matches are only about 3 minutes long, so even if you get destroyed early on, you don’t have to wait long for another match. The car-building is actually pretty cool.

I haven’t had a chance to see how onerous the F2P part is yet, so it might end up being a no-go if it becomes obnoxious to play, but for now, I like it enough to try it out more this weekend.

Except I seem to be the only person giving it the time of day since I’ve been waiting 18+ minutes for a match to start.

MEDIOCRE.

Not really, but with the Fury Roadiness of this I had to do it.

Looks interesting enough to at least give it a try. I just rewatched Mad Max: Fury Road the other day, as a matter of fact.

Auto Assault’s successor?

Is this just another open world pvp mess? What a waste in building a world just for that. There could have been a cool story to tell.

I believe it is a World of Tanks-like lobby shooter. Just standard multiplayer deathmatch, but I would commend it at least for seeming to be having some fun with a different setting compared to similar titles.

Pretty much this. The matches are quick and dirty and you build your death mobile from the ground up with parts you earn / unlock / purchase. I’m normally not big on pvp games…but this one is right up my tire screeching, slug throwing alley
