New content update heralds the big hunt!
07/15/2022 - Gaijin Entertainment today announced the release of the "Big Chase" content update for the post-apocalyptic online action game Crossout. This is the biggest update this summer, which includes a new Battle Pass season, the long-awaited co-driver system, the return of the revamped PvE mode "Chase" and the new PvP map "Peaceful Atom".
The ninth Battle Pass season focuses on the battle between the Syndicate and the Steppe Wolves and features new vehicle parts from both factions as rewards, such as the giant AM-5 Avalanche assault mortar, the RA-1 Heather rocket artillery module with a new volley fire mechanic, the Miller heavy minigun, the Omamori passive protection module, and new structural parts and cosmetic items. The new Battle Pass season will run through October 16.
A revamped co-driver system gives players even more ways to optimize their vehicle before heading into battle. The update brings eight new battle partners, each of which has passive abilities, as well as talents that can be activated. For example, a partner named Jay prefers to shoot enemies from a long distance, so he reduces the weapon's dispersion and increases the damage and speed of the projectile. Another teammate, Phobos, likes to attack stealthily, taking advantage of individual enemies and sneaking up on them from behind in stealth mode.
The revamped "chase" raid returns to the valley. It takes place on the new "Path of the Warrior" map, where two Steppenwolf battle wagons await four survivors who have sided with the Syndicate. The players' goal is to stop and rob the convoy before it leaves the place. Both trucks are heavily armed and will not give up easily. If the survivors capture one of the two trucks, they will get only a part of the valuable cargo. If both are captured, there will be the full reward.
The battles on the new Peaceful Atom PvP map take place amidst industrial buildings like the dilapidated hangars, old rails and rusty train cars. It's a good place to grab some resources if you have time to get ahead of the looters and the rest of the survivors.
