On August 3, Smilegate Games, Inc. (CEO Ina Jang), has officially announced plans for the global league ‘CROSSFIRE STARS 2015’ (CFS 2015) of the game CROSSFIRE, the world’s No. 1 online FPS game.

CROSSFIRE, which has over 6 million concurrent users and 500 million registered users in more than 80 countries across the globe, will run its fourth international season, CFS 2015. Previous CFS events have shown successful records, placing CFS as a celebrated e-Sports event. CFS Season 2 held in Chengdu had more than 20,000 fans attending the event, while CFS 2014 reached over 150 million viewers live streaming the tournament.

80 countries will be divided into 11 regions, each holding its own National Finals (NF).

The champions from the NF will advance to the Grand Finals (GF), which will be held in Guangzhou, China, from December 4 to 6, 2015.

The prize pool for CFS 2015 is $220,000 USD and a total of 12 teams will qualify to the GF. The teams will be divided into 3 groups in the Group Stage through a double-elimination format, and consequently 8 teams will move onto the Tournament Stage, a single-elimination bracket.

Guangzhou, where the GF will take place, is the capital of Guangdong province and is renowned to be the largest and most active commerce sector in South China, dating back to 2000 years of trading. It received wide attention for hosting the XVI Asian Games in 2010, as well as having interest from the e-Sports community for holding the International E-Sports Festival (IEF) in 2014.

Smilegate Games CEO Ina Jang expressed, “We will do our best to bring together all the global CROSSFIRE users and provide them with a great, exciting experience” and “carry this momentum forward to organize more e-Sports leagues that will be recognized in each country.

** BOSS RUSH! August 6, 2015 **

2015-08-06

Attention Mercenaries,

The stage is set for the final battle against Blitz. Their constant attacks and experiments with biological weaponry have weakened them to the point that we can finish them off once and for all. But there is still one final obstacle... well 5 obstacles. The Corrupted Alphas, five twisted machinations that are the result of Blitz's mad science. These Corrupted Alphas MUST be defeated before we can demolish the lab. Infiltrate the area, Eliminate the Alphas, and bring this battle to an end.

At long last, the source of the biological terrors has been found. 5 corrupted Alpha experiments have been sighted in a remote laboratory facility. Infiltrate the area and take these monsters down but be wary, these Alpha's are the culmination of all the biological experiments witnessed thus far. They will not be easy targets.

**Rumble in the Jungle! May 6 Update**

2015-05-07

Attention Mercs,

Black List activity has been spotted in a new amusement park in the jungle. Why they are there remains to be seen, however we cannot chance that they may be attempting to set traps in the amusement park for when it opens. We need you to infiltrate the area and deal with them... permanently. But be quiet about it! To help you navigate the jungle stealthily we're releasing a group of Amazon themed weapons for a limited time as well.

Water Park
Black List has struck again. This time ambushing innocent citizens relaxing in a water park of all places. While Global Risk could not be positive of Black List's motive; they none the less could not stand the incursion, and moved to intercept the intruders.

Weapons

M4A1-S-Tiger - An upgraded M4A1 with a silencer, a 35 round magazine and a stylish tiger skin paint job.
Desert Eagle-Snake - A Desert Eagle with high power and given a snake paint job.

** Golden Easter Update! March 25 **

2015-03-25

Attention Mercenaries,

Spring has begun and the countdown to Easter has started with it. Soon the hunt will begin for chocolates shaped like eggs and rabbits and other things alluding to the Easter Bunny.

And CrossFire will not miss out on such an event either which is why we have released the new Golden Easter Crate. But this crate doesn't hold chocolatey treats, instead it contains a few weapons of solid gold.
