With cyberpunk games being all the rage right now, it seems only fitting that Crossout – Targem Games and Gaijin Entertainment’s free-to-play, post-apocalyptic action-MMO – gets its own dash of neon-infused, ultra-techie flavour.
Crossout’s latest content update brings cyberpunky mayhem to the game’s vehicle-torn wasteland through the ‘Syndicate’ – the new faction on the block that gives the update its name. Before the game’s plague-induced apocalypse, the Syndicate head honchos were part of a Pan-Asian corporation called ‘Neon Dragon’, which was all about implants, prostheses, and AI tech. But the end of the world can change things. The Syndicate’s now a secretive, closed society defined by a strict hierarchy and specialist tech: we’re talking augmentations, ‘smart’ weapons, and advanced energy storage devices. Oh my.
The good news is they’re willing to share this high-tech kit – but you’ll have to earn it. The faction’s arrival heralds the Crossout battle pass’s new season and through completing its Syndicate faction tasks you’ll get access to its gear, which includes a whole batch of new car parts for modding your battle machines (and fuelling your cyberpunk dreams).
