The MOP Up: Crossout’s Knight Mayhem mode makes its medieval mark


Vehicle battler MMO Crossout has brought back its mayhem mode with a medieval theme called Knight Mayhem. The event runs through May 12th and features 8v8 matches in which players build their armored car and fight it out. “The goal of the battle is to fill the point scale before the opposing team. You can also win by scoring more points before the time runs out. Points are awarded for the destruction of opponents,” Gaijin notes.

Early access MMO Polity went free-to-play on Steam. “We were always planning to change the game from paid to free (after a certain period), but, later, we decided not to postpone it to reach everyone who desires to give a chance to Polity,” Jib Games writes. “The upcoming change will have enriched the atmosphere of BD-2 and diversified the citizen profile to experience this planet and the existing player-generated countries. It will bring new players who are future citizens together with the current citizens on BD-2 to build their utopia more strongly.” [Cheers, Marcus!]
