That's too bad, but if you think about it they can only donit this way

christocolus1198d ago

There's destruction in campaign but it's reduced.

Genuine-User1198d ago

Is that confirmed? Could I have link to your source.

OpieWinston1198d ago (Edited 1198d ago )

Yeah in the demo Dave Jones was running... He specifically mentioned blowing a hole through the floor and causing the roof to come toppling down to get certain "Gang Bosses".

christocolus1198d ago (Edited 1198d ago )

Yeah, basically. He said 100% destruction would only be featured in multiplayer then he also mentioned it during the stage demo that 'campaign destruction would be scaled down".

"Crackdown 3's single-player campaign can be played entirely offline w/ limited destruction. 100% destruction only available in online co-op"

Palitera1198d ago

So probably only on reduced maps?

Rookie_Monster1197d ago

Nice find Christ, helpful.

Didn't know that there were limited destruction still in Single player. Great to know.

Genuine-User, hope that help you too.

The cloud tech at shows is nothing short of impressive. They better live up to our expectations, otherwise there will surely be a backlash of some sort.

I agree, Nicholas Cage. This could be a real ****storm for Microsoft if they don't deliver on what they're hyping up so much.

Genuine-User1197d ago

This is the third time you've called me Nicolas Cage. Why? lol

on-topic: At this point, they HAVE to deliver.

AngelicIceDiamond1198d ago (Edited 1198d ago )

I personally wouldn't mind the always online approach in this game.

Aceman181197d ago

I'm a little disappointed about this, but I'll still get the game when it comes out as it's really only the single player I want it for anyway. I didn't play the online mode in the other two either.

tuglu_pati1197d ago

I think its better this way, you don't want an always on line SP experience.

Crackdown 3 is the only game so far that makes Xbox One look like a real champ. Microsoft's new console is getting some great exclusives but crackdown is the best thing at Gamescom this year.

Imp0ssibl31198d ago

Scalebound and Quantum Break are more exciting for me in terms of pure gameplay. But Crackdown 3's tech is astonishing.

SquidBuck1198d ago

What about Scalebound looks so damn impressive?? I don't see the hype surrounding this game. Explain to me what makes it so compelling to you.

HammerKong1197d ago

@squidBuck could you please tell me what you find interesting in horizon, horizon may had great ideas but what was shown to us so far i personally think scalebound is having better gameplay than horizon, if you noticed gameplay style of both games are lot similar especialy bow and arrow , scalebound is having moregalmeplay variety to it, comanding your dragon , hack and slash, bow and arrow portion which looks cool, amazing looking graphics, big scale battles and monsters, may be some of the biggest in any open world game, this is what is exiting about scalebound, i personally think people are way too much overhyping horizon, they just showed its graphics and very little gameplay portion for which peopel have stating it as goty.

PockyKing1198d ago

I read elsewhere that destruction is limited offline, but not completely missing.

christocolus1198d ago (Edited 1198d ago )

That's what he means by this..

“The 100% destructible environments is limited to MP"

There'll be destructible elements in campaign too but it will be scaled will not be 100% destruction like in mp. If destruction was 100% in campaign then players would destroy all the buildings,missions would be too easy and getting orbs would be an impossible task.

PockyKing1198d ago

Yea, I understand that. The title shouldn't say "Restricted to Multiplayer" though. Little misleading, should say "Full Destruction limited to multiplayer".

Alexious1198d ago

@PockyKing - Fixed that. Initially I wanted to keep the title shorter for editorial purposes, but you're right, it was slightly incorrect.

Rimeskeem1198d ago

Sumo Digital, the same people who made LBP3. This should be interesting.

Thatguy-3101198d ago

LBP3 is a hell of a game so I can see them executing crackdown 3 mechanics easily.

Mikefizzled1197d ago

I don't think Sumo have anything to do with the mechanics and instead act as a resource studio. Reagent and Dave Jones' team do the core gameplay systems and Sumo fill in assets and campaign.

Aurenar1198d ago

There is something that is not limited in this nex-gen?

Team_Litt1198d ago

Rhetorical questioners.
