Just how the multiplayer will be “revolutionary” wasn’t revealed.
Crackdown 3 was shown off on Tuesday at Gamescom and one of its biggest perks appears to be that it is using a relatively new technology known as Cloudgine. Microsoft had said earlier in the year that they wanted to take more advantage of cloud technology for its games and the firm said at Gamescom that by connecting to the cloud, players would be able to have as much as 20 times the processing power as leaning on their consoles.
While the game was shown off at the gaming conference, WCCF Tech points out that it still looks a bit rough. Microsoft has said it is going to keep the things that work for the Crackdown series, such as the graphical styles. Microsoft unveiled the game through a short video and in that video claimed that they wanted this title to be the “ultimate sandbox game.” Being able to totally destory anything and everything will certainly help the title live up to that hype.
Despite the proclamations of a “revolutionary” multiplayer, there weren’t a great deal of details brought to the party. The reveal did hint that there would be an open beta going on sometime early next year. There hasn’t been an official release date named yet but the game is expected to also hit later next year. Until then, we’ll just have to survive on the tiny bits of information that have come out. Certainly the destructive environment sounds like something that could be quite a bit of fun. Crackdown 3 will launch exclusively on the Xbox One.
