Massive update to the original most-played FPS in the world brings overhauled graphics and new characters, weapons, multiplayer modes, and more
Toronto, CANADA – December 10, 2015 – Today, Smilegate Entertainment Inc., a leading game developer in Asia, and its North American subsidiary Smilegate West, have announced that CrossFire 2.0 is now available. The 2.0 update is the biggest ever to hit North America for the popular game, which is now available as an automatic download via the CrossFire game client.

The CrossFire 2.0 update is a complete graphical refresh of the most played FPS in the world that moves the game forward visually. This includes enhanced graphics, new textures and more realism to the most popular battlefields, including “Black Widow,” “Egypt” and “Ship.” These detailed new visuals will redefine the way players see characters, as classic soldiers have been remade with a level of detail never seen before. In addition, CrossFire will now feature the Viper, a beautiful and deadly new VIP character fitted with close-quarter Training, Throwing Knives, and increased movement speed in Mutant and Zombie modes.
Players will now have more weapons to choose from as the CrossFire 2.0 update has added guns of all ranges. Use the telescopic iron sight with the new Knight SR25-ARES-CQB sniper rifle, enjoy faster reload times with multiple dual mag compatible weapons, equip powerful slug ammo-featuring shotguns, and stock up with Jacketed Hollow Point ammo carrying SMGs that blurs enemy vision and decreases movement speed.
New game modes have also been added, including an “AI Bot Mode” tasking a team of players to coordinate their assault in a man vs. machine format. Ranked matches have also been added with CrossFire’s Competitive Ranked Match System allowing players to compete on a more competitive battlefield.
“We remain deeply committed to CrossFire, and this 2.0 update pays homage to the immense community of fans we’ve built in North America and around the globe,” said Jason Kang, Manager of Live Production and Marketing. “We are forever grateful for the longtime support our player community has provided and the feedback they’ve given to help make this major update happen, and we hope this will ensure the profound popularity of CrossFire continues for years to come.”
Released in 2007, CrossFire is an online tactical first-person shooter featuring two mercenary corporations named the “Black List” and “Global Risk,” fighting each other in an epic global conflict. Supporting up to a maximum of 16 players, each divided into an 8-man team, CrossFire demands teamwork to ensure victory. This tactical team gameplay has led to CrossFire being one of the world’s most popular games featuring six million concurrent users, 400 million registered players, and is available in more than 80 countries. According to Superdata, a leading gaming industry analysis firm, CrossFire was the second top-selling global free-to-play MMO in October 2015.
Unlike the 2.0 update to CrossFire, CrossFire 2 is a sequel under development by Smilegate Entertainment and being published by The9 for a later release.
