CrimeCraft Details March Update and Steam Trading Integration

Posted Tue, Mar 27, 2012 by Martuk

If you just can’t get enough of the rage comic face, CrimeCraft has something you might be interested in. As part of the online shooter’s Easter event, CrimeCraft is adding new Rage Comic Masks. Along with the Rage Comic Masks, CrimeCraft will also be adding new Bloody Bunny Masks and a Rabbit Ears Hat to the game. Easter Egg drops will be added from April 8th-15th during Riot PvP matches and occasionally during PvE gameplay. The eggs will give players a chance to earn random in-game prizes once opened.

Lastly, CrimeCraft is now fully integrated with Steam Trading, a feature that allows players to trade items from one game for items in another game.

Check out the new Rage Mask (troll?) trailer and press release after the break for more. You can sign up to play for free on the CrimeCraft website or via Steam.


CrimeCraft Wants to Know, Why U Mad?


New Rage Comic Masks, Steam Trading Coming to
Premier Free to Play MMO/Shooter Hybrid

NEW YORK, NY, March 26, 2012 – Vogster Online is bringing a little mean spirited fun to CrimeCraft this Spring with new meme-inspired clothing items, an Easter event and Steam Trading integration.

The new rage comic faces are designed to inspire rage in your online enemies, even if they’re the ones doing most of the killing. Few things in life are more satisfying than splattering your foe into bloody giblets then asking, “U mad bro?” This spirit is captured in the Rage Comic Mask trailer at http://youtu.be/KbbLD39v0Vw.

“It’s something that’s fun and looks really cool in game,” said Daniel Prousline, vice president of game development. “We wanted to put in a few fun features for the March update and between the new masks and the Easter event, we’ve done that.”

For Easter, CrimeCraft is adding a few new items, including the Bloody Bunny Mask and Rabbit Ears hat. A new drop is also being introduced for the holiday, the Easter Egg. These eggs drop during Riot (every man for himself) matches and, rarely, in PvE matches like Safeguard and Headhunt. Easter Eggs will only drop during the week of April 8 through April 15.

Players can open eggs for prizes ranging from vendor trash Black Market exclusive items like name color changes, 5-slot weapons, and Gold ammo and boosts. Players can also sell unopened Easter Eggs in the auction house.

Finally, CrimeCraft will be fully integrated with Steam Trading on March 26. Steam Trading is an innovative feature that allows Steam users to trade items from one game for items from another game. We’ll give each of our Steam users the Mask of the Dead as the first item for their Steam Trading inventory, but they will be able to add any non-bound item to a Steam Trading tab in their ATM.

“Steam Trading is great for our players and it’s great for us,” said assistant producer James Casale. “It’s another way to reach out to users who have never played our game while making it more valuable to the people who already know about us. Personally, I can’t wait to score some cool items.”

Beyond these new features, the CrimeCraft Spring Update is focused on player requests and fixes.

These include:

  • Updated Quickplay messaging and level reduced to enter lobby
  • Added graphic representation of teammates health in combat
  • All player healing displayed by on-screen graphic
  • Class and weapon balance
  • New clothing, including Fire and Shock modifiers

The CrimeCraft March update is expected to launch midmonth.
