CrossfireX is slipping under the radar a bit, which is understandable, given how packed February is. However, this news has certainly piqued our interest.

When the upcoming shooter launches on February 10th, one of Remedy Entertainment's campaigns will be free on Xbox Game Pass. Yep, one whole FPS campaign at no extra cost.

To clear things up, the structure of this game is a little odd. Basically, Crossfire's core developer Smilegate is making the multiplayer, which will be free-to-play. Then, for the Xbox release, Alan Wake developer Remedy has been drafted in to create the single-player mode.

It's now clear that the single-player will be split into two campaigns, Operation Catalyst and Operation Spectre. The former will be free on Game Pass, while Spectre is available as a paid add-on.

CrossfireX free campaign

CrossfireX's 'Ultimate Package', which contains both campaigns, a season 1 battle pass and a golden gatling gun skin, is now up for pre-order and pre-load. Surprisingly, it's only $30 RRP, and it currently has a $5 discount too.

The original Crossfire is 15 years old this year, and it's huge in Asian markets. The gameplay is very reminiscent of Valve's Counter-Strike, but perhaps a little more forgiving.
