We are delighted to launch Crossout on Steam through Early Access and continue to build our vocal and collaborative community before Open Beta starts”, said Stanislav Skorb , CEO of Targem Games. “Closed Beta players help us shape the direction of development to build the experience that the community demands.”

With Steam Early Access launch, Crossout contains all the latest content updates including new PvE Missions and additional maps:

Convoy Escort

Scavengers are willing to fork out a tidy sum to any mercenary who ensures safe passage of an armored truck. Players need to follow the truck and defend it from other scavengers and help it cross the map successfully. The map was created especially for this mission with a long route that has almost no turns. Enemies will be attacking the convoy along the way. In the middle of the map there is a radar station, which is a perfect place for an ambush. The main clashes will be waiting for players there. Reward for this mission depends on the distance players can pass.

In this mission, players will try to grab some goodies from a settlement based in Terminal-45 and take it to the evacuation spot. Here players will face not only the enemies which can appear from everywhere, but turrets as well, as they attack a well defended settlement. The map is like a giant labyrinth, with rubbish dumps, garages, living spaces and transport routes all scattered around the territory of the former port terminal. The heist attempt also has a time limit so failing to complete it before the timer ends means losing the round.

Map Control 17

Bringing the total number of maps to 10, Map Control 17 is the latest addition to the game. An open and spacious map, it offers a lot of fun for long range weapons lovers and high speed drivers. Since there is no place to hide for a substantial amount of time, the only way to survive is to be the first to attack the enemy. Be quick, be unpredictable, be desperate – this map indulges brave scavengers. Sneak around destroyed radar dishes, hunt for lonely drivers, and watch your back. Someone can be hunting you at the same moment!

About Crossout

Set in a post-apocalyptic world devastated by an alien invasion and human genetic testing gone awry, Crossout is an MMO vehicle combat game, offering players complete customisation in building and upgrading deadly armored vehicles to destroy enemies in open PvP battles. Crossout gives players thousands of possibilities to design their vehicle, including shape, armor, weapons, support systems and, of course, cosmetic enhancements.

Cities: Skylines – Natural Disasters Announcement Trailer

STOCKHOLM — Aug. 18, 2016 — Paradox Interactive, a publisher suffering from asteroid rage, today announced “Natural Disasters,” an expansion for Cities: Skylines, the best-selling city-building game from developer Colossal Order. The expansion features a catalog of catastrophes to challenge mayor-players everywhere, including planning with early warning systems and emergency routes, devastating and destructive disaster effects, and caring for the populace as they struggle to rebuild. Natural Disasters will also update Cities: Skylines with a new scenario editor and gameplay mode, allowing players to finally win – or lose – the game on their own terms.

Watch the Natural Disasters trailer for a glimpse at the expansion’s impact on the game:

Natural Disasters

Natural Disasters will add a series of city-destroying emergencies to Cities: Skylines, which can occur unexpectedly during the game – or be manually triggered by mayors seeking a challenge or some sort of gruesome, vindictive pleasure. Buildings and infrastructure will be destroyed, fire can spread across locations, and countless lives may be lost unless players implement the right emergency plans and responses and keep an ear on the new radio alert system. Fans of Cities: Skylines will have the chance to overcome everything from massive fires to meteor strikes, and allow their friends to do the same with a new Scenario Mode, where custom challenges can be designed and shared through Steam Workshop.

Natural Disasters will include:

  • Deep, Impactful Gameplay: Keep your city going through the devastation of several possible doomsday scenarios, from towering infernos to the day the sky exploded
    With Great Power Comes Great Response Abilities: Plan for, and respond to, disasters using early warning systems, countermeasures, and new disaster responses such as helicopters and evacuations – finally, a Paradox game where “Comet Sighted” actually means something
  • Radio Saved the Video Game: Citizens can go Radio Ga-Ga with a new broadcast network, helping to rapidly spread evacuation warnings and emergency alerts – or simply relax to new in-game music stations
  • An Objectively Good Feature: Scenario Mode allows players to design custom game objectives, including custom starting cities, win conditions, time limits, and more – and share scenarios to Steam Workshop
  • Chirpocalypse Now: Heck yeah, new hats for Chirper

Natural Disasters will be available for Cities: Skylines players on Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs this winter.
