Crossout’s battle station wagons jump on the battle royale bandwagon

Here at the esteemed Massively OP offices, where every day is a silver-lined dream aboard a gold-lined yacht, we have established a policy of trading off the duties of announcing whichever game has decided to roll out a battle royale mode that day. Today’s rotation goes to me, and today’s game is Crossout.

The post-apocalyptic vehicular MMO, which is still in testing, introduced a battle royale survivor mode with its Patch 0.9.50. In this 32-player brawl on the new Blood Rocks map, everyone gets the same type of armored car but will have to drive around looking for weapons and modules to improve their vehicle’s chances of winning. The team said that ammunition will be limited in this mode, so every shot will need to count.

And don’t even try to think of cheating: “We draw your attention to the fact that the mode is intended for playing solo. This means that it is forbidden to arrange ‘fixed’ matches and unite with other survivors in groups. We warn you that such behavior will be monitored and punished in accordance with the rules.”

None of this PvE stuff, you guys should go full PvP, do rock/paper/scissors instead, to decide.

I installed Crossout last week to have a look. Published by Gaijin (War Thunder, Star Conflict), the interface should be fairly familiar, at least.

It is (and will be) most certainly a grind-fest of the most spectacular order unless you want to open the wallet. Even if it allowed you more liberty to craft/build your vehicle (even with sub-standard weapons/parts) without having to pay, it might be much more compelling.

This is not to say it’s not fun, but I’ve presently too many other games which are more worthy of my attention.
