Crossfire X Review
Posted: 4 weeks ago.
The main attraction here is the multiplayer modes of the game. You join one of two hostile private military factions (Global Risk or Black List) in a variety of game modes. These range from bomb planting and defusing to battles over controlling two objective points in a map. There an unusual mode where attackers are invisible until they move.
There is a single-player portion that was worked on by Remedy (Control, Alan Wake), that needs to be purchased separately. This offers several operations that play out through a series of episodes. The story explores a global conflict between Black List and Global Risk, two private military factions. Both the multiplayer and the single-player games use Remedy's graphics system from Control and Quantum Break so have a familiar appearance.
Two versions of Crossfire are in development:
- Crossfire (PC) - Original Crossfire game.
- Crossfire HD (PC) - Remastered version of the original Crossfire using Unreal Engine 3.
- CrossfireX (Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S) - Next version on console with online and single-player elements. Beta was available on Xbox in 2020, although the release date is not yet confirmed.
This game is free to play. Additional in-game purchases are offered for items that enhance the experience.
You will need Xbox Live Gold (must be 18 to create, then configure family accounts for younger players) to play online with Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S.
