PCs, 360s caught in Eidos' Crossfire

Two-player cooperative first-person shooter coming to North America in 2007; destruction heads to PC, Xbox 360.

Shooting enemies is easy from two feet away.

While big announcements were aplenty at Microsoft's press briefing before the start of its X06 event currently taking place in Barcelona, Spain, Eidos thought it appropriate to release some PC and Xbox 360 news here in the US. The publisher today revealed that it will be releasing a new game titled Crossfire.

The first-person shooter will feature two government-hired agents sent behind enemy lines to finish an undisclosed job. Gameplay will entail switching back and forth between the two members of the team, who will provide cover fire for each other, head out on their own paths, and create diversions for one another. Details on multiplayer action were slim, with Eidos only copping to two-player cooperative play.

The game's Web site is live, and states that the game is headed to the PC and Xbox 360. The site also lists Pivotal Games (the Conflict series) as Crossfire's developer, a fact that an Eidos rep confirmed to GameSpot.

Crossfire has not yet been priced or rated.

This is now heading to the PS3 along with Kayne & Lynch.

The pc is defnianlty becoming a hot item again now that MS is pushing for content but it still is the most expensive and puts the PS3 price tag to shame in comparison.

It will compete with Army of 2 from EA.

"It is becoming more and more clear that x360 offers very little that you can't get on pc. " Well the fact that Microsoft makes most of their money from the PC market, it's only wise for them to make sure that there are a healthy number of games for the Windows platform as well as their console platform. And with their Live Anywhere, I'm sure in the future more Xbox exclusive games will be for Windows Vista as well, and more Windows game will be made avilable for Xbox.

Excellent. The more Microsoft can nail down the better.

I sure hope they take a look at Just Cause and learn their lesson. Most PC gamers do have high end rigs more than capable of pumping out "next-gen" graphics and don't want a half-assed port from the 360 with half the features.

Sounds like an "Army of Two" ripoff but with REAL quality assurance.

Am I the only one that sees this as a blatant Army of Two ripoff?

Yet another game that is being released for Xbox 360 and PC, but NOT the Playstation 3. The Playstation 3 continues to become a bigger disappointment each day! The Xbox 360 continues to become more awesome each day! Look at some of the awesome games that were announced today as Xbox 360 games, but NOT as Playstation 3 games: Bioshock is only for Xbox 360 and PC Splinter Cell 5 is only for Xbox 360 and PC Crossfire is only for Xbox 360 and PC Marvel Comic Universe Online is only for Xbox 360 and Windows Vista Kayne and Lynch is only for Xbox 360 Grand Theft Auto 4 will be on both Xbox 360 and PS3, but there will be two additional episodes that are exclusive to the Xbox 360! Many more games are scheduled to be announced tomorrow! I read an article that said, "More and more people jump off of the Sony bandwagon each day." Now I know why that article was written! I agree with the statement made by Sony's executive, Ken Kutaragi, when he said, "Sony is in a state of hardware decline." Now I know what he meant... The sad thing is that this means Sony is also in a state of software decline! ... a state of BIG software decline! Thankfully, the Xbox 360 is picking up ALL of the slack and then some! The Xbox 360 software line is continually growing, and the games are just getting better and better!

I don't understand the whole black or white perspective of some of the posters here. It's not about winning or losing or better or worse. Games are meant to be played for what they are, not what they represent.

I pray it doesn't deliver the same (lack of) quality that the Conflict series has for the past few years.

Nice, sounds a bit like EA's Army of Two though, however I wonder which will be the better game. My money is on this game, but I guess we shall see.
