There are four modes of play in the game including Team Death Match, Exploder Match, Elimination Match and Ghost Match. Upon successful completion of these exciting and competitive modes and matches, players earn experience points and achievements which advance their character up various military ranks.
Key features of the game include:

The game has proven to be a huge success in Korea where it was first launched in 2007 by Neowiz. Additional servers had to be added within one hour of the game going live due to the amount of traffic and people playing the game. In mid-March of this year, Cross Fire was the first FPS to launch its open beta in Vietnam. Within three days of the launch, the number of Cross Fire concurrent users reached 62,000 with more than 1.09 million subscribers in total.
