CrossfireX Trailer Takes A Quick Look At The Campaign (VIDEO)
Remedy Entertainment has a long track record of creating their titles with unique mechanics that change the way players interact with the world they’re placed in. Slowing down time, controlling gravity, dealing with the strange, and supernatural encounters make up a majority of their expertise. Last year, the developer announced that they’re looking to take on the world of military shooters with CrossfireX, their very own take on the highly popular shooter franchise. Now, a new trailer has arrived showing off a small taste of what they envision for their partnership with Smilegate Entertainment.
Crossfire was originally a multiplayer shooter that gained quite a large amount of popularity, primarily in China and Korea, but is looking to gain a breath of fresh air with its arrival on Xbox consoles alongside its single-player campaign courtesy of Remedy, thus the CrossfireX title. A recent interview with Remedy Entertainment executive producer Tuukka Taipalvesi reveals that the team Smilegate reached out to the company in the hopes of gaining their expertise in fleshing out the already impressive story elements that the title has to offer.
The developer goes on, explaining that the offer was completely in Remedy’s wheelhouse, offering a whole host of “really, really strange things” for the developer to really sink their teeth into and run with. With such a perfect opportunity, its easy to see why the company decided to take part in the project. The upcoming campaign will feature all the wonderful gameplay innovations that fans have come to expect from the Remedy Entertainment crew, just with elements of pre-existing lore of a well-established universe.
The trailer itself shows off some intense action sequences filled with explosions, gunfights, melee combat, and what appears to be an exosuit that seems a bit reminiscent of something out of Crysis. On the surface, players will be taking part in a massive world-spanning war between two private military factions as they fight for freedom, control, order, and more. There’s so much more to the story though with a variety of wild details concerning Terminator-like killing machines and even zombies. How the developers at Remedy hope to convert all that content into a tangible and coherent storyline is anybody’s guess at this point, but it’ll be interesting to see what they can come up with for CrossfireX nonetheless.
CrossfireX doesn’t have a release date for Xbox One quite yet, but it is expected to arrive sometime later this year. There’s been no word as to how the developers hope to release the upcoming single player content either though it will be released as multiple episodes that will be consist of numerous “Operations.” The PC version of Crossfire is currently live with Crossfire HD set to release sometime this year as well.
