Crossout hits early access on Steam
(MOSCOW, RUSSIAN FEDERATION) – August 24th, 2016 -- Award-winning developer and publisher of smash hit, War Thunder, Gaijin Entertainment and Targem Games development studio today announced that their new team-based vehicle combat MMO Crossout is now available on Steam Early Access for PC. Steam players will get a chance to join the Closed Beta by buying the Early Access Pack ‘Westland Warrior’ which includes the ‘Bloodhound’, a unique armored vehicle equipped with two powerful ‘Sledgehammer’ shotguns, 2000 in-game coins, featuring an exclusive character portrait and special dark-red paint. All pack content will be available in-game immediately and at the end of Closed Beta it will be reset and reassigned to the account, with the start of free-to-play Open Beta.
“We are delighted to launch Crossout on Steam through Early Access and continue to build our vocal and collaborative community before Open Beta starts”, said Stanislav Skorb , CEO of Targem Games. “Closed Beta players help us shape the direction of development to build the experience that the community demands.”
With Steam Early Access launch, Crossout contains all the latest content updates including new PvE Missions and additional maps:
Convoy Escort Scavengers are willing to fork out a tidy sum to any mercenary who ensures safe passage of an armored truck. Players need to follow the truck and defend it from other scavengers and help it cross the map successfully. The map was created especially for this mission with a long route that has almost no turns. Enemies will be attacking the convoy along the way. In the middle of the map there is a radar station, which is a perfect place for an ambush. The main clashes will be waiting for players there. Reward for this mission depends on the distance players can pass.
Heist In this mission, players will try to grab some goodies from a settlement based in Terminal-45 and take it to the evacuation spot. Here players will face not only the enemies which can appear from everywhere, but turrets as well, as they attack a well defended settlement. The map is like a giant labyrinth, with rubbish dumps, garages, living spaces and transport routes all scattered around the territory of the former port terminal. The heist attempt also has a time limit so failing to complete it before the timer ends means losing the round.
Map Control 17 Bringing the total number of maps to 10, Map Control 17 is the latest addition to the game. An open and spacious map, it offers a lot of fun for long range weapons lovers and high speed drivers. Since there is no place to hide for a substantial amount of time, the only way to survive is to be the first to attack the enemy. Be quick, be unpredictable, be desperate – this map indulges brave scavengers. Sneak around destroyed radar dishes, hunt for lonely drivers, and watch your back. Someone can be hunting you at the same moment!

Ash vs. Evil Dead is a wonderful destructive fest that breaks the boundaries set by the movies in regards to grotesqueness, lewd humor and scope of how evil the bad guys can get in the story. And this reviewer wouldn’t have it any other way. Can't wait to see season two.
While it has been a few years since I’ve reviewed a Madden NFL title, EA Tiburon’s efforts in Madden NFL 17 seems to be incredibly focused on keeping the necessary modes intact, the gameplay elements accurate on both sides of the ball and, most importantly, not trying to overreach. The developers seemed focused on bringing the best Madden NFL title in the last 10 years and they have very much accomplished that feat. This is a must-have, folks.

The Nice Guys is entertaining because of the characters that Shane Black creates. The story takes a backseat to them and almost depends on their actions to keep the viewer’s attention retained. Like I said before, this doesn’t mean The Nice Guys is a bad film, rather it just means that it fell short of what it could have been. I thoroughly enjoyed the people, the style and world Shane Black created, as well as what Gosling and Crowe (and the talented Angourie Rice) brought to the screen. They make this movie fun and the moments memorable. They make the journey worth it.
