Crackdown 3 was by far the best game on displaying during Gamescom last week. Featuring cloud based processing from the talented folks at Cloudgine and Reagent Games, Microsoft’s Xbox One all of sudden becomes a beast and is able to process 20 times the compute processing than it would usually do.
The Gamescom demo showcased intense destruction however that is not all. Creative director of Reagent Games Dave Jones has confirmed in a community Q&A that players can flatten out the entire city if they want to. This can result into some intense multiplayer gameplay mechanics, however it will also be interesting see the performance parameters such as fps if such a situation ever happens. Furthermore, players will also be able to use debris and rocks to take out their opponents.
Jones also confirmed that the game will have playable female agents and goes on to explain the difference between the single and multiplayer component of the game along with how cloud can potentially change multiplayer gaming.
