According to a recent developer interview, Crackdown 3 will be going back to its roots in terms of mission structure—and that means it’ll share something in common with Nintendo’s recent open-world megahit, Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
The first Crackdown tasked you with taking down three different criminal organizations on three different islands of Pacific City. You could dismantle each organization piece-by-piece by first taking down the lower-rank bosses, which would make taking down the main kingpin for each organization much easier.
Crackdown 2 still kept an open approach to missions, but you had to complete every objective in order to beat the game by activating all the Beacons and Absorption points throughout Pacific City.
Crackdown 3 will bring back the structure of the first game, though this time there is only one criminal empire, Terra Nova, that you’ll be tackling in the brand-new city of Providence.
That being said, you can skip all the lower bosses and go immediately to the end boss if you want. However, you will be taking on the Kingpin without any upgrades and with the full backing of Terra Nova buffing the Kingpin’s defenses.
You can check out Crackdown 3‘s design director Clint Bundrick discussing the game’s open-ended mission structure with Geoff Keighley for Gameslice below:
Crackdown 3 will be available on Xbox One consoles and Windows 10 on November 7th.

so does this game feature a set protag, or can you create your own character/agent?

During E3, we got a first look at Crackdown 3. Seriously, it had Terry Crews giving a sit-rep to Crackdown Agents. It was awesome, check it out.
It's now been revealed that the open-world aspect of the game allows you to tackle the game in any order you want. That means, if you really wanted to and were good enough, you could take on the TerraNova Kingpin, the big bad boss of the game, early in the game and get the ending. This would take roughly 3 hours.

Don't fret though, this is way harder than it sounds. Crackdown is all about leveling and power-ups and the Kingpin is no slacker. Starting the game over after beating it once though, allows you to play as that higher level agent.
“That’s what we’re doing internally, and we can guarantee that’s what other people will do as well,” campaign developer Sumo Digital told PCGamesN.
So in other words, your first playthrough will take about 12-16 hours, and your second/third/fourth/etc can be a speedrun. Crackdown 3 is out November 3 with the launch of the newly revealed Xbox One X, as well as PC and Xbox One. How fast will you beat it?

Terry Crews is no strangers to gaming. He has appeared at events and has made his case to play Overwatch's Doomfist. There weren't a ton of concrete details that came from the Crackdown 3 trailer that was revealed during Microsoft's E3 2017 presser, but some (including our own Cade Onder) surmised that Crews was a playable character. Just in case,





design director Garett Wilson confirmed to IGN that yes, Terry Crews' character, Commander Jaxon will be playable in Crackdown 3.
Not only that, how it happened was somewhat unusual. According to Wilson, he says that the dev team got a call from marketing saying that Crews wanted to be in the game.
"We were like, 'that'd work. That'd absolutely work.' He's a real-life Agent."
So there you go. Sometimes (a lot of times) it actually pays to be famous.

Plus how Xbox One X changed the project and Terry Crews





During E3 last week, we had the opportunity to sit down with Crackdown 3's executive producer Steve Pritchard to clear up exactly how cloud-based destruction is being built into the game, as well as how the Xbox One X enhances the game, how Terry Crews came to be a part of the project, and how the game differs from the others in the franchise.
You can check out the entire interview transcript below!
Crackdown 3 will release as a launch title for Xbox One X on November 7th, 2017.
Tom: Crackdown 3 has been in up in the air for quite a long time. I think the last time we saw you guys was two E3’s ago. Obviously, Microsoft is making a big push for this with the Xbox One X. I want to talk about some of the technologies behind it. Last time we saw you guys you were talking about accessing remote servers and using that for that total destruction of the city. Has that changed? What is happening with that?
Steve: The campaign, in both single player and co-op, is an experience where the city is important; saving the city is important. For competitive multiplayer, that’s where our cloud-based destruction sits. In the campaign, you can play on your own without an internet connection if you choose.
Tom: So that cloud-based destruction is going to be solely for the multiplayer?
Steve: Competitive multiplayer. Bringing down a city on civilians? That’s not something we want to see you do. People you’re shooting and fighting? Yeah, we want some of that stuff. So it’s a deliberate choice from a design perspective.

Tom: This is launching the same day as the Xbox One X on November 7th. When you guys first got your hands on Project Scorpio, did that change anything in terms of development?
Steve: It just gives us more. More power, more raw things to do with. You’re looking at a more populated city; a denser degree of civilians and traffic. We can just throw more at it. And of course, you’ve got 4K. It’s true 4K and it looks stunning. So we’ve had a great deal of fun working out just how we can pep up the visuals. How we can make it really sing as well as making it a really dense experience.
Tom: Terry Crews is going to be involved in the game. Crackdown is the Terry Crews of video games. It’s a match made in heaven. When did he come onto the project, and what’s it been like working with him?
Steve: He asked if he could be in Crackdown. We didn’t approach him: he approached us. So you don’t say no. You’ll get to play him at some point in the game. We’ve loved it! We’ve absolutely loved being with him! He’s lent a great deal of humor to the project.

Tom: Is there anything specifically you want fans of the series or even newcomers to know that they can’t see in the trailer?
Steve: If you know Crackdown and you know the franchise, you know what it’s all about. You’re a super agent trying to take down a criminal organization. This is a little different to the original franchise in that the entire world you’re in is owned by a single corrupt corporation, a gang. And your job is to find them and bring them down and unlike the original game where you could go to a place and fight person X and person Y, you’ve got to discover our bosses and you’ve got to provoke them.
We have a system called 'Gangs Bite Back'. What you do there is whoever you poke and prod, they’ll respond. So you’re never quite sure where you’re going to find these people or whether they’re going to find you! So your game and my game will be totally different. It’s an exploration game, it’s a “go and kick their ass” game. But it’s “find best how to draw them out, and then kick their ass”. That’s the important part.

They didn't want it to come out in the same year as Agents of mayhem
which most gamer news out lets were seeing the comparison's and certain gamers may like the younger game series compared to it.


It does matter when it comes out though, it'll be compared to AOM regardless. the thing that will separate this game from that game is the fact this game has larger scale building destruction still. other wise there are similarities. But AOM's humour with its characters may be received better.

Hmmm, not a good sign, but at least I don't care too much about Crackdown.
