Just slightly over a month after taking over the services for the European version of CROSSFIRE, the EU division has more good news for their community, especially the German part. From today on, the 30th of March, the German version of the game will be available. This is the first additional language besides English available in CROSSFIRE EUROPE. But this month’s update is bringing not only the German version of the game but also additional maps, modes and new VVIP Characters – Switcher. Three maps are especially worth mentioning: The first two are Morocco and Cairo, those are the maps that were very desired by the EU community and until now were only available in other versions. The Smilegate team is very happy that they fulfilled the promise given to their community. The third map is called Pelourinho and with the March update it has its “global” premiere. Morocco, Pelourinho are S&D maps, whereas Cairo is available in TDM.
CROSSFIRE has also been very active on the eSport scene. After the participation at the IEM Expo in Katowice Poland – where four great teams (including 3 big names from Europe: PENTA Sports, FlipSid3 Tactics and ESC Gaming) were participating in the CROSSFIRE Invitational, and the winning trophy went to last year’s world champions, the Chinese team Super Valiant Gaming – SG EU achieved two very important things: First of all on the 5th of March, so just after the IEM Expo, the company announced starting a cooperation with ESL and the beginning of CFS: Major European Championship.
The very first monthly finals will take place on the 12th of April. All players who would still like to take part in the CFS: MEC and participate in the upcoming qualifiers can register here. This is a great way for teams to qualify for the Grand Finals later this year.
But another, huge step forward is the presence of two European teams in the CFS: Pro League. Earlier mentioned PENTA Sports and FlipSid3 Tactics. It’s really important to stress that those two German teams are the very first European teams that were invited to the CF PL and they are currently training in China, getting ready for the Play offs of the CFS: MEC that will take place just prior to the finals at this year’s Gamescom.
Stay tuned for more information!
