Crossout is a post-apocalyptic MMO-action game for the PC and console. The game offers PvP engagements on a variety of maps, involving AI-participants, real players and their handcrafted vehicles, as well as PvE missions.

The game focuses around vehicle combat. Players gain reputation with different factions, gaining access to new blueprints, parts, cars, and crafting. Players gather parts and materials via battle rewards, completing missions, breaking down unneeded equipment, or by purchasing items from other players via an in-game market. Each player’s combat vehicle is only limited by the player’s imagination and 2 mandatory parts that need to be integrated into each player’s design: cabin and undercarriage (frame). Parts such as armor, weaponry, generators, and auxiliary devices are not required.

Different combinations of these items let players custom tune vehicles to their own liking and playstyle. As there are no fixed traditional vehicle “classes” or vehicle rolls, players are free to edit and modify their vehicle as they feel, allowing players to customize both the look and the technical aspects of their vehicle, honing their machine’s performance and looks to their liking.

These battles are real-time and involve two teams of players and AI-participants. To win, a team must eliminate the enemy team, capture base or perform other tasks depending on the game mode.
