CrimeCraft is a persistent world Next-Gen shooter set in a fictional city in the near future where the price of life is far less than the value of reputation. Players must do whatever it takes to survive amidst the chaos of Sunrise City.
Crime - Following economic collapse, lawlessness prevailed and the government built Sunrise City as a penal colony to house the increased criminal element. Perform various "tasks" and "jobs" for money and experience which can be used to help you gain a reputation, learn new trade skills and perform new abilities in battle.
Craft - Use the loot gained in battles to create your own weapons, clothing and performance boosts.
Unreal Technology - Explore the vast world of Sunrise City beautifully rendered by the powerful Unreal Engine 3.
Intense TPS action - Battle other players or AI enemies with a wide range of weapons, explosives, abilities and enhancements at your disposal.
Pay your way - Flexible payment models that lower the barriers of entry and give players options based on their playing style.
Personalize - Amazing depth in the variety of clothes, weapons, items, and skills available to distinguish your character and your crew from the masses playing online.
Team up - Form virtual gangs to build a reputation, assign rankings, pool money and goods and buy gang hideouts.
Underground Economy - Control the cost and quality of manufactured items that you create, modify, or repair. Then sell, trade or auction them to other players in the open black market.
CrimeCraft is a persistent world shooter that aims to put players in the role of some serious thugs, fighting for reputation and money. Incidentally, recently it became a free to play title.
