Sets in 2021, Gaijin Entertainment's vehicle battle MMO Crossout is an apocalyptic survival combat game. Humanity along with the planet is swept by a mysterious viral epidemic known as the Crossout. The entire populations disappeared almost overnight. Those who didn’t die immediately were plagued by hallucinations and headaches. Many people went mad. Some looked to suicide to escape their degenerative state.
In the first few days of the Crossout epidemic, media offered wild speculation about the nature of the epidemic. Some argued that the radiation from cell phones and televisions was infected with a deadly virus technically engineered by terrorists. Others believed the virus was airborne, caused by the disintegration of a large meteorite in Earth’s upper atmosphere. Was this the dawn of an evolutionary leap and a new kind of humanity?
Chaos engulfed the planet. Many tried to escape the effects of the virus by using different protective measures. They wore face masks to filter the air. They completely stopped using electronic devices and used more traditional means of communication. But all efforts were in vain: what was once an epidemic in a few days became a pandemic unlike anything ever experienced by man.
To survive the deadly environment, vehicles are essential. Survivors must create, upgrade and fight for their very existence in the game.
