CrossfireX beta launches later this month

Mark the spot.

You may not be familiar with it, but tactical shooter CrossFire is one of the most-played PC games in the world - having accrued over 650m registered players since it first launched in 2007. And if you want to jump on the bandwagon, you won't have to wait much longer, as the beta for new title CrossfireX starts next month.

That's according to a Microsoft Store listing, which says the beta will launch on 25th June (thanks, Gematsu). The game is set for release on Xbox One sometime in 2020, and will be a free-to-play title. There's still no word on a PlayStation release, but as it's "first to console" on Xbox, it's likely to happen at some point.

The game's main developer is SmileGate Entertainment, but Control developer Remedy has been drafted in to help with the CrossfireX's story campaign. As for the multiplayer gameplay, you can expect something similar to CS:GO, with "objective-based missions across a variety of classic and innovative modes featuring tightly crafted gameplay and cinematic visuals".
