CrossFire Invites Players to Experience a Working Vacation With New Hero Mode X Updates

For Immediate Release

Toronto, CANADAJanuary 17, 2013 -– G4BOX Inc., a North American publisher and distributor of interactive online entertainment media, revealed today that CrossFire players have a new way to play fan-favorite Hero Mode X with today’s content update. Starting today, players will be challenged with two new vacation-themed battlegrounds and compete with new unique player skins: the female Ranger and the demonic Havoc.

In this classic fight of good versus evil, players can take on the role of the Ranger, a highly specialized and stylized fictional hero that wields an impressive amount of firepower. In response, the Mutant population’s devious leader Xeno has perfected his ultimate abomination in genetic manipulation: the Havoc. These two new warriors will clash in the most unlikely of environments; the Resort HMX and Carnival HMX. These vacation spots are dripping with Americana, featuring wide-open spaces, choke points and unique strategic surprises for players willing to seek them out.

“Hero Mode X is one of our most popular game modes in CrossFire, and we felt the time was right to give the players a new way to play this survival-of-the-fittest team game,” said JT Hwang, producer of CrossFire for G4BOX. “The maps offer a little something for everyone, with long corridors, sniper nests, speed power ups and multiple hiding spots. Add to that the two new player skins and we feel that this update will be one of the most popular we’ve done to date.”

Along with the new maps and players skins, CrossFire is introducing several new weapons for gamers to experience. Available via in-game currency, the KSG15 is a dual-tube, double-feed pump-action 12 gauge shotgun, sure to keep threats at a distance. For players looking to get a leg-up on the competition, three new variant weapons are available at the cash shop, including a more-powerful M60E3 crew machine gun.

CrossFire is a fast-paced military-themed combat online shooter, pitting two competing mercenary forces, the Global Risk and the Black List, against each other in a war-torn world. Players can choose from a massive armory of realistic firearms, explosives, hand-to-hand weapons and personal body armor used by military forces worldwide. Single and unit-based combat scenarios and location-specific damage combined with popular movie culture create adrenaline-fueled action-packed battles in 10 different gameplay modes: Free-for-All, Escape, Hero, Hero Mode X, Team Death Match, Elimination, Search and Destroy, Mutation, Ghost, and Zombie. Developed by SmileGate, CrossFire is the largest first-person online shooter in the world with more than 4.2 million concurrent users globally.
