A PC Legend Comes to Xbox

Our team has been working hard to deliver a complete first-person shooter experience that can provide users with multiple engaging ways to play. We couldn't be more excited about the upcoming Beta launch, so we prepared an in-depth guide to help you enjoy the CrossfireX beta to it's fullest.

 

When does the BETA start & end?

CrossfireX will first be available through a Closed BETA via Xbox Insider Program. Afterwards, it’ll be opened to the public in an Open BETA. The schedules and start dates/times for both are listed below:

 

How do I participate in the BETA?

Closed BETA

The closed BETA has limited availability and will be managed through the Xbox Insider Program. In order to join, you will need to download and install the Xbox Insider Hub on your Xbox and request to join the CrossfireX BETA

Open BETA

Simply navigate to the Microsoft Store from your Xbox Dashboard and download the Beta once it's available on June 25 (Check the exact start times for the BETA here)

 

Will there be any rewards for BETA participants?

Yes! All players participate in the CrossfireX BETA will be rewarded an exclusive branded Axe. You will find this Axe in your inventory to try during the BETA, and once the game launches in full, it’ll also be added to your account.

Will CrossfireX be available in my region?

Yes, CrossfireX Beta is available in all Xbox markets

 

What can I expect my ping to be?

While we are planning to expand our coverage in the future to cover most regions at launch, the initial server availability during the BETA will be limited. Our BETA servers will be covering the following regions:

  • North America (East, Central, West)
  • Brazil
  • Western Europe
  • Northern Europe
  • Southeast Asia

Does my BETA progress carry over to launch?
