Irvine, Calif. - Dec. 16 , 2011 - The countdown to the launch of Crossfire: Europe is finally over and the battlegrounds are officially open for intense gunfights! Mercenaries were busy in the days leading up to the game's launch, putting more than 17,500,000 bodies on ice. Now, to kick off the intense first-person shooter's live launch, SG Interactive is releasing a new gameplay mode and hosting several bonus events for gamers.
Beginning today, mercenaries in Crossfire: Europe can experience what it's like to be a hero. The new Hero Mode pits a squad of infectious mutants against a lone hero (chosen at random) armed with a special rifle/grenade launcher. The game is all about survival; if the Hero suffers more than two mutant attacks, he will become infected. The longest-lasting Heroes will win the round and earn the most experience.
Crossfire: Europe's launch events include:
- Hero Mode Bonus - All players that finish at least 20 games of Hero Mode before 2012 will receive 3,000 GP of premium in-game currency.
- Fox Howl RP Capsule - Fox Howl RP Capsules are updated to contain a rare Fox Howl character. Fox Howl is an elite unit consisting of the best female mercenaries around the world. Any player opening more than 50 Fox Howl RP Capsules before Sunday, Jan. 1, and not winning the rare character will receive three additional capsules.
- Christmas Charge Bonus - The Holiday season brings a special Christmas challenge! Until Monday, Jan. 2, players can participate in any or all of four daily missions to win Christmas Treasure Boxes. Each mission: playing three games, playing for 90 minutes, getting 200 confirmed kills or earning 1000EXP unlocks a Christmas Treasure box, which can contain holiday-themed gear, name cards and sprays, GP, or even striped weapons. As an added bonus, players who complete all four missions will be awarded two Christmas RP Capsules and two Fox Howl RP Capsules.
Crossfire Europe is a fast-paced military combat shooter between two competing mercenary forces, Global Risk and Black List. Players choose which side to join and fight for across multiple gameplay modes including: Escape,Team Death Match, Elimination, Search and Destroy, Mutation, Ghost and the brand new Hero Mode.
