New Xbox Shooter Crossfire X Is Getting A Beta Very Soon, Store Leak Suggests
A product page for CrossfireX has popped up early, and it reveals a beta for the shooter is coming very soon.
Crossfire, which is one of the world's biggest FPS games on PC, is coming to the Xbox platform as a timed-exclusive for Microsoft's console--and it appears there will be a beta ahead of launch.

CrossfireX is a free-to-play online multiplayer game that supports up 16 players. The game will offer a "variety of classic and innovative" modes, but it's not immediately clear which ones are in the beta.

CrossfireX was announced during E3 2019 as a "first to console" release on Xbox, which suggests it may release on other console platforms later on. Crossfire for PC, which is distributed by Tencent, is one of the most popular games on the planet with some 650 million users globally. For comparison, Fortnite had 350 million players worldwide by the latest count.
The Crossfire series was created by South Korean studio Smilegate, which is also working on multiple new projects in the franchise. Alan Wake and Control developer Remedy is making the single-player campaign for Crossfire 2.
A movie based on Crossfire has been in the works since 2015.
