Changes and new features in progress. Crossout 0.10.100. Mass testing

Greetings to all survivors! Next week, Crossout is planning a New Year’s update “Snowstorm”. Preparations are in full swing, and Gronch has already crafted a new armoured car in order to spoil everyone’s holiday this time.

We remind you that all the new features and changes described in this news item are still in testing and may be changed before they are introduced into the game or may not make it into the game at all.

New Year's event “Snowstorm”

New Year's Eve Event — Updated Brawl! This time, the survivors will have to escort the New Year's truck with presents, delivering these presents from the warehouse to the festive tree, and fight off Gronch's henchmen. In parallel with the main objective, players will have access to secondary tasks. If you accept the risk to complete them and succeed — the truck will get a certain temporary bonus or permanent weapon for self-defence. And yes, it will all happen on the snowy “Dead Highway”.

Will you be among the 100 or 1000 best defenders? It’s definitely worth trying because this time a unique decor is at stake in the form of a new duck in a snow globe and a snow cannon.

For receiving medals related to the New Year's event, you will unlock unique backgrounds and emblems to personalize your profile.

And, of course, crackers. Like last time, they can be obtained in the New Year’s brawl or in a special PvP mission, and the “Lost and found explosives” workbench will be available again and will offer you a unique New Year’s decor, paints and stickers.

But that is not all! Every day a new special offer will appear on the workbench, which will last only 3 days. Check back at the Lost and found explosives regularly and you won't miss any of the surprises!

Please pay attention that the following event will not be available during this mass testing.

New map “Naukograd”

With the update, survivors will begin fierce battles for the former stronghold of scientific progress — the infamous “Naukograd”, with its tall buildings and an amusement park reminding you of the joyous past. Now the city is dominated by nature. Be careful with geysers!

The map will be available in missions (“Assault” scenario).

Visitors in test drive

With the update 0.10.100, the neighbourhood of your garage will become more populated. Expect your friends as guests! And the way you greet them depends on you. You can give them a friendly honk and get a small gift, or you can take it by force and at the same time test the power of your armoured car.

Game modes

Clan battles will get an important improvement. Now, clans located in leagues below Diamond will not be able to drop to the league below the one in which they are, until the end of the current season. If the clan reaches the minimum number of points in the current league (except Diamond), subsequent defeats will not take away rating points. With the start of the next season, all clans will still be transferred to the league below.

Parts

Production of parts of common rarity is planned to be made as convenient as possible. Now survivors will be able to choose the number of the same “common” parts, craft them all at once and get them automatically to the storage. The same way you will be able to exchange your Engineers badges for resources and containers.

It is planned to add the long-awaited parts to factional workbenches:

  • Cabins: “Harpy”, “Photon”, “Bastion”.
  • Weapons: “P-29 Protector”, “PU14 Arbiter” and “Pulsar”.

You can familiarize yourself with the planned balance changes HERE. What is going to be changed?

“Goliath” tracks

We reviewed your feedback after mass testing and decided to return them to their previous speed and turning radius. Instead, the following changes are planned:

  • Durability increased from 1600 to 1800 pts.
  • PS score increased from 450 to 750.
  • Tonnage increased from 4500 to 6000 kg.

“Chameleon” invisibility module

  • The maximum radius at which your silhouette is visible is 90 meters.
  • The speed of the armoгred car, at which the silhouette is clearly visible, is 100 km/h.
  • The maximum speed at which the range of your detection does not change is 35 km/h. Moving at this speed and below, your car will remain invisible until it gets close to the enemy.

“Chameleon Mk2” Invisibility Module

  • The maximum radius at which your silhouette is visible is 70 meters.
  • The speed of the armoured car, at which the silhouette is clearly visible, is 100 km/h.
  • The maximum speed at which the range of your detection does not change is 50 km/h.

Chainsaw “Mauler”

  • Now the saw “Druzhba 2” is called “Mauler”.
  • Item type has changed to “Chainsaw”.
  • Changed chainsaw’s perk. Now it “Increases damage dealt by all weapons of this type by 10%”

Among other planned changes in the next update:

  • The altered sound of the “Reaper” minigun firing.
  • Updated appearance of parts: “Lupara”, “Guerilla”, “Huntsman”, “Small speaker”, “Large speaker”.
  • Displaying the number of battles played per season for each member of the clan.
  • 2 additional callouts: “Watch out!” and “Thanks!”.
  • Damage numbers display mode.
  • The ability to adjust the sensitivity of the artillery sight with a minimum step of 0.01.

Of course, this is not all that awaits us in the New Year update. You can see the full list of changes next week in the update's description.

We would also like to inform you in advance that changes to radar armour require more time for implementation and testing and have been moved to subsequent updates. And also, at the numerous requests of crafters, already in early 2020 we plan to add standard and lightweight frames 1x4, 1x6 and 1x8.

See you in the vast New Year's Wasteland!

And HERE you may check out our Friday news!

We remind you that all the new features and changes described in this news item are still in testing and may be changed before they are introduced into the game or may not make it into the game at all.

How to get to the test server?

Today we invite you to test new tweaks for the “Goliath” tracks, “Chameleon” / “Chameleon Mk2” invisibility modules and the "Mauler" chainsaw. You’ll receive these parts on the test server.

If you have already participated in testing on a special server, then it will be enough to start the Launcher from the folder with the test client and wait for the update to complete.

  • Create a new folder for the game on your hard drive.
  • Download the Launcher from this link. The file name should not contain numbers indicating that the file is a duplicate. Please note that you should launch the file that does not contain any digits (1), (2), etc. in its name. If, when starting the installed launcher, you get to the live game servers, you need to delete all downloaded launchers from the download folder and try again.
  • Start the Launcher and install the game to the folder you created (for example D:\Public test\Crossout).
  • After the installation is complete, start the Launcher and enter the game with your username and password.
  • The whole progress of your main account will be transferred to the main server (including parts in storage and levels of reputation in factions).
  • After logging in to the server to transfer the progress from your account, you must press the “Esc” key and select “Copy account data”.
  • Please note the schedule of the test server:
    • Friday, December 6, 2019: from 13:00 to 19:00 (GMT time)
    • Saturday, December 7, 2019 from 15:00 to 18:00 (GMT)
    • Sunday, December 8, 2019 from 15:00 to 18:00 (GMT)
  • Any progress you make on the test server will not be transferred to the live game servers (INCLUDING ATTEMPTS TO BUY PACKS).

After testing the changes, we invite you to leave your constructive feedback on the planned rework in THIS THREAD (it will open a bit later after the launch of the test server).

You can report all issues found on the test server here.

The public test server is intended only for testing of the upcoming update, and may not accommodate all players without exception. However, absolutely anyone can join the server, as long as there are free spots.
