E3 2017 was made full use of by the Crackdown 3 team to talk about the game’s several aspects. But even then, not much gameplay was shown, and nor did we get to see Terry Crews’ much talked about in-game appearances. The SDCC 2017 panel, on the other hand, has yielded more promising results.
Microsoft had promised a lot of new Crackdown 3 reveals at the SDCC 2017 panel, which was to consist of Sumo Digital and Reagent Games’ developers along with Crews himself and Major Nelson, indicating that fans would finally see what Commander Isaiah Jaxon was all about. Now that the panel has concluded, we stand more informed about many things, including who Crews is playing.
First off, Commander Jaxon is shown off in all his glory. If you haven’t yet seen Crews’ appearance within the game, you can take a look at the video below (courtesy of Gamespot) and marvel at how much Jaxon, one of the leaders in The Agency, looks like the actor’s real self.
Besides, there is also a whole bunch of gameplay footage to gratify your need to know more about the important things. And we must say that it all looks better than we had expected. Head over to DualShockers to see it all featured in one place.
Microsoft has made lofty promises ever since they announced Crackdown 3 at E3 2014. People were about to get a new game in the Crackdown series that would let them go wild with a wholly (we have been told) destructible environment. The franchise has always had its own set of followers, but they have often seen disappointing reviews despite the remarkable combat and exploration elements.
However, upon Crackdown 3’s announcement, it was easy to see that Microsoft and developer Sumo Digital were intent on using the latest technology to their advantage, and the sound of utilizing “true devastation” to one’s strategic advantage was tempting. And if the new footage is any indication, then this is sandbox-style gaming at its best.
Crackdown 3 is up for launch for the Xbox One and the Windows PC on November 7, 2017. It is coming out on the same day that Microsoft’s new Xbox One X console will be hitting the shelves.
