Crackdown 3 was already good fun, but now it's even better. Download the Extra Edition update now and have fun with the Keys to the City.
This is awesome, CD:3's Keys To The City is back and much like the author of this article said haters be damned.
Does it even matter?
“Also added via the Extra Edition upgrade is a vanity progression system for Crackdown 3‘s multiplayer portion, Wrecking Zone. By earning Agency Points during matches you’ll now be able to unlock over 100 tiers of items to customise your Agent with. Six different types of ‘Overdrive’ Skill boosts have also been added, and the interface has been tweaked in numerous ways.” i don’t understand how they didn’t have this ready for it at launch. with no progression there was no point to play the multiplayer
My thoughts exactly. I played it for a little bit for the novelty of the destruction, but with no progression there was no reason to come back. They also need to add more maps and a party system also. But at this point I'm not sure many people play the MP anyway.
It's pretty easy to understand. Sumo Digital are incompetent. Microsoft should have given the game to somebody else. Easy as that.
Didn't they take the game from someone who was making it and then give it to sumo? Or am I thinking of a different game
Are Crackdown 3 biggest lie in gaming history?
Nope. That would be Colonial Marines
Wait did Crackdown 3 get released already?
Nope, It's slated to come out next year.
In my opinion don't hate, but putting sprinkles on a turd doesn't stop it from being a turd.no
It could if it fundamentally changes the game. Dunno if I'd say this update does that.
They basically added a creative mode which is pretty cool. It's a better sandbox now.
I'm all for them improving the game. I'd rather they do that than abandon it like some MP games get handled if they don't do well out of the gate. It's a shame about the cloud tech not being what they promised. It showed the tech is viable, and I think if MS hadn't made it such a focal point of the marketing, especially for the early console marketing, then that feature could have been more impressive and not been used to downrate the game like it was. I think had the game been made by another studio, or the studio in question had the resources and know how to really make it work with a playable implementation, it could have been something to really turn heads. the game would have been a mid-tier game like it actually is, it would have been rated as such, and it would have gone down as an innovative game that did something different. While it can still claim that innovative title, that is marred by the way it was marketed to the public. Luckily for MS, and even the consumer depending on your viewpoint, the development community doesn't look at these tech things as flops or successes. They look at if its something they can use, and the creative devs will maybe find ways to use it to achieve their goals, or the concept could open up new ideas for whatever they're working on. It won't mean jack squat this gen, and this game will still be the butt of the "Cloud Powah" jokes, but it did serve some purpose in the long run.
That MP vanity and extra boosts stuff should have been in launch. Having 0 progression for an MP game will make it stale quicker especially if the gameplay isnt fantastic. Keys to the City was always fun to have in the past Crackdown games. Should add some extra fun to its sandbox
Listen, will some like this game? Yes of course, but let's quit making excuses for this game. I'm sorry but it's not our fault. If you want to blame someone then look at MS. Look at almighty Phil. This game was supposed to show us the Power of the Cloud!! It failed to do do after all these years. Let not gloss over that. Listen if this game was as good as you say, wouldn't if have at least charted? Where are the sales? Where are all the people talking about how great this game is? Where are all the people just in the article? I mean if a game is great, would more people be talking about it when new "content" is coming? Maybe I'm missing something. And of course y'all have to bring up Days Gone lol. Remember at the end of the day, this game still scored higher than Crackdown. Days Gone is the bottom of the barrel right and it still outshines Crackdown. You know the game that supposed to be up there with Gears and Halo. I'm done...wait...did Days Gone chart? Lol....
we all no days gone really terrible
It really isn't. But what does Days Gone have to do with this article?
You know really to cut through all the bulshit, f*** these people they were made not to like the Crackdown series and Crackdown 3 in particular, they will always hate on this game no matter what. The important thing to realize is that if you're playing this game continue to do so, ( and keep the community we have going ) don't fall for their trolling tactics, the only thing they're ever going to do is to try and sow doubt in people's minds that Crackdown 3 and Wrecking Zone are great games. In fact CD:3 is every bit as good as the HALO Series or Gears of War's multiplayer in regards to share technical prowess on how you actually play the game, and this is coming from a person that has put hours into this game's multiplayer and single player. These people have put no time into this game to really tell you anything informed about it and they are frankly talkin straight out of their asses. End of story. And to say anything to the contrary is bold and a bald faced lie on top of that.
You continue to prove my point trol...
I honestly found it hard to play let alone finish, not gonna go into why as that's been covered plenty, but atleast they are adding something to it, its good for the people still playing.
