Crossout hits 3M players, bans almost 1K of them for cheating

Things are cruising along rather well for the post-apocalyptic death car MMO Crossout, as the team reported late last week that the game had attracted over three million players to its particular brand of mechanized mayhem during the current open beta.

This sort of success doesn’t come without a hiccup or two. Some bad seeds were caught using banned third-party mods to cheat, resulting in 922 accounts getting slapped with a lifetime ban.

“We warned about strict measures which will be applied to players using cheats in the game,” the team posted. “Thanks to the care and support of honest players reporting suspicious cases, our algorithm for recognizing modifications, based on the methods of machine learning, allowed us to identify players who used banned modifications. Each suspicious player was checked by our employees after detection by the program.”

Crossout’s most recent beta patch added customization kits to change weapon appearance, co-drivers to cars, more chat settings, and a few tweaks to seasons and raids.

Betawatch: Master x Master sets a launch for this month (June 2, 2017)

No to worry, ladies and gentlemen, your long Master x Master-less nightmare is almost over. The game has officially announced a full launch on June 21st, meaning that you log in, play the game, and… well, play the game. Sorry, there wasn’t really much more past that segue.

We also bid farewell to Crossout, which is now in an open beta/soft launch state that even the developers are calling soft launch. Fare thee well, Crossout, and may all enjoy your post-apocalyptic vehicular antics.

Other beta news ensuing in… now. Wow, the segue machine on this is just broken as heck.

So, that’s the story! Now you can just catch up with the rest of the stuff in the list down below and let us know if something slipped into a new test phase without us noticing down in the comments. You can also let us know about betas you’re enjoying. Please don’t share scone recipes with us down there, though.

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.

Betawatch: Crowfall lets races and classes mingle at will (May 19, 2017)

The teaser week for Crowfall is over, and it turns out the tease was all about decoupling races and classes altogether. No longer will all centaurs belong to the same archetype! Make a centaur everything! Of course, you could conceivably play races other than centaur, but why would you do that? You wouldn’t. You can prove you wouldn’t when the open beta arrives by the end of the year.

We’d like to end there, but the fact of the matter is that we’ve got to talk about things other than centaurs this week. For example, the other items on our list here.

And that’s everything. Unless you count all of the other games we have down below in various stages of testing. You can let us know if one of those games jumped into a later test phase in the comments; it’d be silly, really, but it happens all the time.

Perfect Ten: MMORPGs with vehicle avatars

When you take a step back and look at the broad MMO genre, you see some common threads that run through most games. One of these is that pretty much every character we control is a humanoid, albeit in many shapes, sizes, and ear configurations. This makes sense, as we ourselves are human and have the easiest time strongly identifying with an avatar that correlates to our own bodies.

Yet there are plenty of exceptions to the rule, and I’m not just speaking of fantasy races that give you four legs instead of two or two heads instead of one. Some MMOs plop you into a nuts-and-bolts vehicle as your primary avatar, encouraging you to bond with this hunk of soulless machine over the course of incredible adventures.

Today we’re going to count down — or count up, or count sideways — through 10 MMORPGs that stuffed your brain into a machine and then encouraged you to live your new life as a ship, car, or very violent automatic can opener.

Crossout brings road warrior action to Steam early access

A morning commute to work or school can become a lot more fun if your vehicle has the capacity to clear a path with a hood-mounted howitzer or a diamond-tipped chainsaw under the bumper. While Ford and Toyota are working on such concept cars, you can live out this fantasy right now courtesy of Crossout.

Crossout is a post-apocalyptic vehicular MMO in which players can construct custom rigs and then take them into battle. The good news for Mad Max fans is that this game recently arrived on Steam early access. If you’re willing to chip in $30 and look past the unfinished nature, then this gritty future is all yours to explore.

Curious about Crossout? Learn more about the title by checking out our E3 preview of the Russian title.

E3 2016: War Thunder’s VR mode and Crossout’s demo

While I don’t play any of Gaijin’s games, I was looking forward to meeting the studio at this year’s E3 for two reasons: the VR demo and seeing Crossout. Sadly, they weren’t combined, as the VR was for War Thunder and Crossout was simply a demo reel and Q&A. Even still, I came away with a few reasons to be excited.

Rumbling thunder

The very first thing I had to ask the War Thunder team was how the recently introduced player-guided anti-tank missiles have changed the game from a developer’s perspective. Apparently they were well balanced, as the missiles are easy to see and fairly slow moving, so players at least have time to find cover to avoid them.
