Crossfire: Legion is a futuristic, action-packed, modern take on the classic RTS genre.

From unique infantry and agile vehicles to defense specialists, transport units, air support, and more - these further units bolster any side and provide even more depth and variety to ultimately deliver unique battle combinations.

Completing the substantial unit increase are three brand new faction commanders - Eclipse (Global Risk), Freefall (Black List), and Viper (New Horizon) - each bringing their own flavor to the battleground and a set of unique skills that can make all the difference in a fight.
