Gaijin Entertainment Brings Expanded Lineup to E3 2016
Best known for smash hit World War II-era massively multiplayer online (MMO) game War Thunder, Russian developer Gaijin Entertainment returns to E3 with the latest version of its new MMO Crossout. Critically acclaimed at E3 2015, Crossout tests players’ creativity in building armored vehicles and taking on enemies—both human and A.I.—in a post-apocalyptic world. Gaijin is showing Crossout at E3 2016, and the demonstration includes completely new modes, new weapons, and new interactive parts for the innovative MMO.
Specifically, Gaijin will show Crossout’s Arena mode, which will become available soon in the game’s ongoing closed beta. Unlike regular, eight-versus-eight player matches of Crossout, Arena pits eight players in free-for-all deathmatches, where only one can come out on top. These battles are quick and intense, and are designed to ensure plenty of head-to-head fighting, rather than hiding and waiting for openings.
Gaijin is also showing a new demo of War Thunder, supporting the latest virtual reality (VR) hardware devices. In this demo, War Thunder provides near-total immersion for players, so that flying one of the game’s many World War II-era aircraft feels similar to what a real pilot from that era would have experienced.
Given its record of exciting and innovative MMO games, Gaijin Entertainment’s demonstrations should be among the highlights of E3 2016 for MMO fans.
