CrossfireX Launch

Smilegate's launching all the games this week. Lost Ark players are currently enjoying the game's head start period, with full launch coming tomorrow, February 11, and today CrossfireX also went live on current- and last-gen Xbox consoles, bringing the mega-popular-in-Asia shooter to Western shores.

CrossfireX's multiplayer modes are available to all players for free. You can also purchase the Ultimate Edition of the game for $29.99 to receive two story modes, Operation Catalyst and Operation Spectre, developed by Remedy Entertainment, as well as the first season of the battle pass and Gatling Gun Gold Wing. Operation Catalyst is also available for free to Xbox Game Pass members, and both operations can be purchased separately for $9.99 apiece.

Early reviews for the game seem to be mixed, with a lot of "it's not perfect, but it's fun" comments, as well as more than a few that are, shall we say, less positive:

That one comes from IGN reviewer Travis Northup, but there are plenty of other non-professionals out there voicing similar opinions. At the very least, we'd suggest you try the free version of the game before plunking down cash on it. And if Northup's take is shared by enough people, then it might finally be time for Smilegate to realize that it needs to stop trying to make Crossfire work in North America, which it's been trying to do for over six years.

They could make this game work if they had the self-awareness to recognize that nobody is going to fall for the standard Korean grind & pay2win thing when the military FPS genre is saturated with games that have less stupid business models. Just how many gamers do they think there are that can afford an Xbox but not a better game like Insurgency?
