Gaijin Entertainment and Targem Games are driving Crossout into closed beta today. Crossout is a post-apoc vehicle combat MMO, say the studios, and it’s even set up for VR. Early access bundles run $19.99 to $49.99 and include items and perks that will function in both rounds of beta and transfer to the live game.
“Players entering into the Closed Beta will be fighting on the outskirts of desolated cities, abandoned factories, in the desert and on a brand new map – Founders Canyon. The map is littered with rocks and the remains of giant statues scattered throughout the canyon which create an obstacle filled battlefield. Players are encouraged to use the environment to their advantage and try different tactics to defeat opponent drivers. Fast cars can maneuver among the rocks and break into the enemy base jumping from the top of a high rock outcropping, while slow vehicles can defend bases.”
Gaijin is also touting player-created leviathans — metal monsters — that are used by the game’s AI against players in PvE battles. “Every time a Leviathan wins a battle against other players, its creator will reap the rewards of combat,” says the studio.
You can sign up for the beta on the official site and check out the images and trailer below.
