E3 2017: Crackdown 3 Release Date, Trailer, And Xbox One X Support Announced

Crackdown 3 details confirmed.


Crackdown 3 has been quiet of late, but Microsoft's E3 press conference brought all sorts of new details about it. This included a somewhat lengthy gameplay trailer offering our best-ever look at the game and a release date.

Crackdown 3 launches for Xbox One and PC on November 7. The video started out with actor Terry Crews pumping up viewers, though it's unclear if he actually appears in the game itself. Overall, Crackdown 3 appears to resemble its predecessors, with over-the-top open-world action as you're able to pick up and throw cars, leap high into the air, and collect orbs.

Now Playing: Crackdown 3 Goes All Out With Terry Crews And Action Gameplay - E3 2017

On Xbox One X, the game will feature 4K and HDR support. Destruction appears to still be an element of the game, as was shown to be the case previously, but it's unclear if Xbox One X impacts how that works. The game's campaign is being handled by Sumo Digital, but series creator Dave Jones is still involved with the game.

Until today, Microsoft had spoken little about Crackdown 3. The game was announced several years ago, and it was at one point expected to launch in part during 2016. Microsoft later confirmed a delay to 2017 for a couple of reasons. These included Xbox One's holiday lineup being too full and feeling needed campaign needs more work.

Microsoft's press conference has also brought word about the Xbox One X, Forza 7, and Playerunknown's Battlegrounds. For more, check out our Microsoft E3 press conference live blog and our E3 hub for all of our event coverage.
