CrossfireX open beta begins on June 25

Xbox announced its free-to-play multiplayer shooter, CrossfireX, at last year’s X019 event and its impending arrival sometime in 2020. Well, that time is nearing with developer Smilegate Entertainment announcing the game’s open beta beginning on June 25 through June 28 on Xbox One.

The beta will have three modes available to play, Spectre Mode, Team Match, and Point Capture. From the Xbox blog, here’s a description of each mode:

  • Spectre Mode: In the Laboratory, Black List players will use stealth suits and melee weapons to silently take down their foes and plant the C4 to destroy their target. As Global Risk, players are tasked with defending high-value objectives with a standard loadout, using audio cues to eliminate their invisible enemies. This high-tension stealth gameplay mode will reward players who exercise caution and strategy.
  • Team Match: As one of the most popular modes in the original Crossfire, Team Match is a variant of the popular Search and Destroy mode where two teams of 8 players will race to eliminate all of their enemies or plant the C4 explosive to achieve victory. Players will find themselves on the Black Widow map, where teamwork and map knowledge will be vital to their success.
  • Point Capture: Point Capture is a spin on the classic Team Deathmatch mode from the original Crossfire. In GR Tower, teams of 8 will race to achieve the requirement amount of eliminations. Point Capture is a great place for beginners to learn and test their might on the battlefield, try out new weapons and learn the map and strategic layouts.

There’s still no word on an official launch date for CrossfireX, however, the game still plans on launching sometime in 2020. Check out the beta announcement trailer below:
