Smilegate Releases CrossfireX Update

One month after the launch of CrossfireX, Smilegate rolled out a new patch last week focusing on multiplayer improvements. The long list of improvements, new features and bug fixes came from community feedback, which the development team has been working at hard to bring into the game. 

While the changes don't specifically change Remedy's single-player experience, they do impact a number of option changes. You can see the full list below, or you can check it out on the CrossfireX website, HERE

  • Dead Zone options have been added for both left and right analogue sticks.
  • Aim Response Curve Type options have been added: Standard/Linear/Dynamic. 
  •  'Set to Default' feature was added for each option category.
The following adjustments have been made to melee attacks...

New Features
  • Weapon statistics have been added for each weapon, viewable in the Loadout screen. (Includes recoil patterns for both Modern & Classic mode.)

  • The Daily Mission requirements have also been reduced to make them easier to complete.
