Very soon large-scale battles involving aerial vehicles will begin in the Wasteland. Fasten your seat belts — “Sky raiders” are approaching!
You’ve already had the opportunity to try out armoured aircraft, but that was just the beginning. Now the majority of the factions have mastered these technologies — some have developed them themselves, others have stolen the blueprints from their neighbours. In any case, just about everyone has their own air fleet now, which means you will too!
With the update, which is planned to be released next week, armoured aircraft will become an integral part of Crossout — just as armoured vehicles and leviathans are now. This means that there will be a new slot in the garage that will store the air monster you’ve assembled!
The armoured aircraft assembly will be no different except for the requirement to have a rotor. Or even a couple if you want! Speaking of rotors — there will be several types of them in the game, each with its own characteristics and features.
In addition to that, you can expect the appearance of other parts that will help in ground-air battles: an anti-aircraft autocannon, a bomb launcher, heat traps for deflecting rockets — everything that will help you establish your superiority on the changed battlefield!
Mixed battles between armoured vehicles and armoured aircraft will be available as part of separate missions based on the already existing “Get the scrap metal!”, “Get the wires!” and “Get the batteries!” At the same time, the old modes will also remain in the game — this way you will still be able to take part in exclusively ground-based battles.
In addition, with an armoured aircraft it will be possible to enter the “Patrol”, “Back on patrol” and “Bedlam” modes — there will be no division into ground and mixed battles.
Raids, Confrontation, Clan wars and other modes not listed above remain solely ground-based at the moment. But it’s possible that in the future, air battles will become a part of these modes as well!
In order to test themselves in aerial combat as soon as possible, each player will receive their starting armoured aircraft when they reach reputation level 10 with the Engineers faction. For those whose level is higher, the aircraft will be issued automatically.
This is just a brief description of what awaits you in the new update. If you want to see more and ask your questions to the developers, be sure to join our livestream, which will take place on Tuesday, October 10, on the official Crossout YouTube channel.
See you soon!
