Crackdown 3, the open world game for Windows 10 PC and Xbox One, has been rated in Brazil suggesting that its release date is now near.
This should be less crappy than Sea of Thieves I reckon.
Definitely, recently went back to playing the first one on my X, still amazing fun to play.
The first one WAS amazing. This one is going to be a 6.5 - 7 experience TOPS. If it was great MS would have been broadcasting from the mountain top and singing it's praises. Instead.....SILENCE.
2nd one was shit though. will have to see how 3 turns out hopefully back to its roots like the first one.
Why did you get disagrees? How I see the n4g commuinity... *sees Opinions that aren’t my own* AAARRGGHHHH f**k you!!!
"2nd one was shit though." Different developer and slapped together within a few months. People seem to think that Xbox is known for bad games when that's not the case. Rare (for example) has made many good games on Xbox and will again. Crackdown 3 will hopefully have a big showing at e3. https://www.eurogamer.net/a...
I spend so much time setting up a chain of explosions.
Fingers crossed but online only, the lack of footage in the last trailer, and it's constant delays and silence has me thinking it's not going to be so great.
already confirmed its NOT online only. There is an OFFLINE SP CAMPAIGN and the MP mode. The destruction in the campaign is limited as opposed to the online mode.The MP is a 4 player co op mode and then the third mode is an online Destruction mode where the city is destructible against the other team you face if i remember correctly.
@jokerisalive Hence the online only. If you want the thing they are marketing as the major feature of the game they cheaped out and made it online only. Just like Gears of War 4's horde mode is online only. It's a cheap tactic to control players and show that the original "online only system" was a good idea.
I dont care about the MP as much as the campaign. I think its still good we get SP, MP COOP and Destruction mode whereas other consoles dont always include MP in alot of there big games. So at least we get some options either way and makes the purchase worth it more to me at least. The original was and still is to me one of the best games I have played in terms of having fun and I dont expect this one to rewrite the formula just keep me entertained like the first one did. Yeah I have to say their original Draconian ONLINE ONLY VISION was a BIG mistake and they paid the price buy losing alot of fans to PS4. They would kill themselves completely if they ever decided to be stupid and go back to dictating to players about shit like that especially when Sony keeps dropping great SP OFFLINE CAMPAIGN DRIVEN GEMS like God of War and Horizon. MS is noticing how good those games are being received thats why Phil keeps praising Sony for their efforts and hopefully its making him wake the hell up and realize GAAS is BS and we NEED more SP OFFLINE games with good story and they need to take the risks like Sony has the balls to do with it paying off for them BIGTIME. They are being RAPED globally and its justifiable with the mediocre game efforts they have put out this gen. I will gladly support CD3 as well as SOD2 because they have OFFLINE SP components to them and I would hope MS pushes that more going forward looking at the critical reception GOW is getting. If not then he really is BRAINDEAD and I wont be gaming on Xbox much longer. Sorry for the long rant.
- They went quiet after showing off the online tech in order to work on the campaign. I'm surprised you don't know that. - The delays were because CD3 was actually pioneering the engine used for Cloud compute, not just building the game, so most of the development time and delay is in the Cloudgine engine. It was after the announcement that Cloudgine was complete that Epic bought the company and the campaign was started. - The campaign, if it's like the first two, will not be very heavily story driven because they designed them to be more about exploration instead. Who knows what the third entry will offer in that regard, but I would like to see an actual story this time. Either way though, blowing crap up is always good fun!
Can't be any worse, right?
I wouldn't expect much based off the gameplay they've shown off for Crackdown 3 so far
If it comes out near Red Dead Redemption 2 then God help it. It'll be a repeat of Microsoft releasing Alan Wake right next to the first Red Dead
Better be waaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than sea of thieves after been delay several times Microsoft need a wining first party game
Don't get your hope's up. They dragged in Terry crews, never a good sign. I feel sorry for Terry.
Straight to games pass for our Xbox friends. I'm assuming cloud is heavily involved in the streaming process Wow. I'd play it. Looks cool and like they said polished. Awesome.
Haven't played the first 2
First game was amazing, second game was kind of a let down. But if you like to destroy things and feel like a bad ass, they are very enjoyable games.
Yeah really enjoyed the 1st game. Playing it on X is pretty good, and thought if they can nail the 3rd like that then it'll be a riot.
I think crackdown 1 is kind of ahead of its time with its open-endedness. It's reminiscent of BOTW in that way.
The first Crackdown was great but the second Crackdown is bad, especially that the original dev studio was closed down so 2 was done by a another Studio.
What Crackdown did first, games like Prototype, Infamous, Saints Row 4 and Sunset Overdrive did better. But Crackdown was one of those turning point games that proved that sandbox games in cities, didn't have to be mission based like GTA and superhero games, or games with superhero abilities didn't have to be licensed. That is why people didn't really like Crackdown 2, myself included. Prototype and Infamous started expanding upon what you could do with core Crackdown 1 gameplay and Crackdown 2, was just more of the same with a disappointing zombie premise and rebels, a strange base capture mechanic instead of the focus on gangs. Crackdown is still a great game because of your agent evolving and evolving as you play, being able to jump higher, cause bigger explosions, run faster, etc, by either taking out gang bosses or just using the abilities provided, the best part personally was hopping around listening for the whirling sound of agility orbs and increasing your specs faster. I've played Crackdown 1 again quite recently with the patch for XO and I can honestly say that it's a case of red rose tinted glasses, it's good, very memorable but it has been bettered. Hopefully Crackdown 3 takes the superhero sandbox back again, because personally, Saints Row 4 really took the crown for me, straight after Prototype did.
Prototype was a great game for sure. I wish they did a remake or something!
Hulk ultimate destruction came before prototype. Prototype is essentially a reskin of that game.
Looks like the Xbox feather in the cap is on the way. I hope it delivers on fun and the hype is warranted. A real exclusive game experience is well past due. Sea of thieves came and went but it’s not a traditional “game”. (Yet at least) Crackdown will fill that void. Hopefully there’s a demo or beta. I can’t pull the trigger on it day one after the development hell it’s been through and radio silence. This will also mark the first time I know of where the “Power of the cloud” will be used for anything outside of drivatars. It was talked about since before the Xbox launch and it will be interesting to see the results of all these years. If it does deliver, my Xbox will be spinning the disc.
Crackdown 3 will be available day-1 thru GamePass, which is only $10/month. So I doubt there will be a demo.
Game of the Year approaching
HAHAHA.... Oh wait... you were serious... I’m sorry.
He means Downgrade of the year that may not be approaching since it might be delay.
@Araragifeels I don't think it's possible to downgrade Crackdown 3 any further based on what has been shown. I mean graphics-wise it looks already outdated. but if by downgrade you mean the cloud-based destruction thing, I think you might have a point
your late god of war already came out, or you talking spiderman or Detroit becom human or red dead 2?
It'll be lucky to get game of the week lol. It would only be goty on xbone.
GoTY on Xbone? LOL since when do 3rd party games skipping the Xbone to give Crackdown 3 a shot at GoTY on Xbone?
Lol good one
Gets em every time. . .
I am not a Crackdown fan, but I hope it turns out good for MS.
Disagrees for saying you want a game to be good. This is the state of N4G. Just pathetic.
@michellelynn0976 yeah...like you who only wants Nintendo to succeed
Same. I am not likely to pick this game up, SOD2 is my sought after game, but I hope this has been improved and gets received at least reasonably well. It will most likely depend on whether they have lived up to their hype on the multiplayer portion and city wide destruction.
Oh boy here comes the next one.
hehehe yeah, 1st PUBG, 2nd SoT ... now CD3... really stoked for the 4th one too: SoD2 ;)
I wonder what's happening with the game now? After the trailers and even a promo from terry crews during e3 2017 the game just went silent and nothing was heard from it after that.
Hiring Terry Crews and then delaying CD3 was a huge financial error. They could have hired quite a few game developers for price they would have paid him. Oh well, what is done is done.
If the MP part of the game has a BR mode its could be very interesting
there's like a 50/50 chance they will introduce BR mode into the game
This is actually, what I bought the X for. Please be good, please be good, please be good....
Well it has an offline single player campaign I believe so that is better already. Played the first 2 and 1 was decent but 2 was crap, not sure why they even made 3
The lack of information and trailers are usually a really bad sign if the game is nearing its release now. They might of course show us a fantastic trailer and gameplay and blow us away with a grand presentation at E3 and surprise everyone who's been sceptical... While I hope for the latter I just have this bad feeling about this game. Hope they prove me wrong!
Honestly looking forward to Crackdown 3 after revisiting the 1st one enhanced on Xbox One X. I mean, surely, it'll be better than the 2nd one. Right?
So much hate for anything Xbox.
Not hate just tough love.
Nothing wrong with tough love, but I have been on this site for too long to not see the over the top unnecessary hate for Xbox. Criticism is cool, as I am highly disappointed with MS.
This game went quiet for the longest time
Why is there literally no media coverage for this game, when we are getting close to release? Clear sign of a publisher not wanting the press/consumer to know what state the game is currently in...
Such a bad game. Don't know where to start. Firstly, this looks like a cheap 360 title. The hype for this game was unnecessary
CD3 = GamePass
Does it even matter? MS had their chance last E3 to hype it to the skies and get it out within a few months, but they blew that out of their ass big time. I honestly wonder if people are even going to notice this release.
I loved the first one and though the second one wasn't as good I did have fun with it. However, I think I will wait to hear how this is before buying, from what I hear the development was shaky which tends to indicate a poor game.
