Mad Max-Style Post-Apocalyptic Vehicular Combat PC MMO Revealed

"Craft. Ride. Destroy."

47 Comments

Russian developers Gaijin Entertainment (War Thunder) and Targem Games (Planets Under Attack) on Wednesday announced a new post-apocalyptic vehicular combat PC MMO called Crossout.

The game, which is currently in pre-alpha, takes place in a world ravaged by an alien invasion, while human genetic testing has gone all wrong.

Car customization will be a major part of Crossout, as Gaijin claims no two cars will be the same. Players can build whatever they want--from zippy buggies to heavier off-road vehicles. Players can accumulate new parts and pieces, either through gameplay or by purchase (there are "thousands of possibilities," Gaijin says), and each affects the vehicle's overall performance.

Players will be able to tailor their car's shape, armor, weapons, support systems, and cosmetics in a virtual garage. The game also has an in-game auction system, though further details were not specified. Some of the weapons players can attach to their cars include chainsaws, power drills, machine guns, and rocket launchers. Anyone else feeling a Mad Max vibe?

Crossout, a free-to-play game, will debut at E3 this summer, while a beta will also be held. To apply for a spot, you can sign up at the game's website. For a closer look at Crossout, check out some images in the gallery below.

Anything from Gaijin is a must try.

That being said, I am far, far more excited about the actual Mad Max game from Avalanche. Especially after seeing the fantastic new film.

I'm guessing all of those with hatefull comments have no idea what they're talking about. Either that, or they haven't checked out the developer of this game, before jumping on the band wagon.


It's a shame. I have a lot of faith in it because of the developer.

I've played a few F2P games that didn't totally suck, so I'll reserve my judgement until I actually play it.

Free to play. People still use this term like it lives up to it's meaning? Anyways, garbage in the making. Nothing to see here.

If its a free to play then its gonna be a pay to win.
If its a buy to play then its gonna be pay to look good.

If its a subscription based, then its pay more just to pay more to win and/or look good.

MMOs suck, most of them, if not all.

@zrex2metagor: Actually sub fees mean the dev can put out more content quicker and those updates will be big and high quality. So every 3 months there is a major patch with lots of new content, and some MMO's, like FFXIV for example, also have a couple of minor patches in between the major patches that add as much content as a F2P and B2P game gets in 6 months to a year. MMO's are worlds, not static singleplayer games and the sub allows the world to grow fast, and anything less than a sub with large content updates every 3 months is a scam made to rip off stupid people.

@geesquared: And when I-76 came out, we said back in the day this was called Autoduel. Both great games! Surprised it has taken this long for someone to resurrect the genre.

Been waiting for a game like this since the vastly underrated and overlooked Auto Assault went under so many years ago

If I were a game developer, I think an MMO would be the last kind of game I would make. They're so expensive to make and if they're not immediately successful, it's really hard to make a come-back.


This could end up being a cool game, but it sounds awfully risky. Plus, wasn't this already tried once?

MMO's are made for dysfunctional gamers that think these games are actually good.

I think the only dysfunctional one around here is you. I see a lot of your comments and they are all basically "you're a loser if you don't agree with me " "my opinion is fact"
