Microsoft's X019 London Event Teases More CROSSFIRE X

Microsoft's X019 event in London last week provided a brand new glimpse at the world of CROSSFIRE X, a new adventure co-developed by Smilegate Entertainment in South Korea and Remedy Entertainment in Finland.

CROSSFIRE X is an upcoming free-to-play, first-person shooter, which is due to launch on XBOX One in 2020. Originally a PC-exclusive brand, the move to console is a bold choice for Smilegate who hopes the switch allows them to expand their audience into new markets, having already established more than 650 million registered players since 2007.

For the upcoming adventure, Remedy has developed a single-player campaign which, according to the official news release from the developer, sees a "sprawling global conflict between Global Risk and Black List" two private military groups. "Global Risk’s agents use advanced technology to fight for order and security, while Black List’s mercenaries fight to destabilize regimes in the name of freedom". Like a lot of Remedy's previous work, it isn't a straight-forward battle between good versus evil but a battle between two morally-grey factions.

The event revealed a behind-the-scenes look at the companies that are working to bring the game to life. Hosted by Xbox On’s Benny Central, his journey takes him from Seoul in South Korea where he spoke with Jin Woo Jung (Smilegate's Technical Art Director), to Espoo in Finland to talk to Tuukka Taipalvesi (Remedy's Executive Producer), and then to Seattle in the USA to speak to Nico Bihary (Director of Production, Global Partner Publishing at XBOX):



The video was followed by a brief on-stage interview with the three individuals featured in the piece. You can check out the full CROSSFIRE X feature below where it is timestamped to the beginning of the reveal:




CROSSFIRE X is due to launch on XBOX One in 2020. Stay tuned for more information!
