Crackdown 3 (Riot Act 3 in the Japanese release) is the third game in the Crackdown franchise. It was announced at E3 2014, originally exclusively for Xbox One. The world of Crackdown is back with an all-new experience for Xbox One. Developed by original creator Dave Jones, Crackdown 3 will deliver verticality, cooperative mayhem, and destruction.
It is described as "a new iteration of the groundbreaking open-world action series that features a whole new campaign — fully playable in co-op — and uses Xbox Live to power a city that isn’t just an exciting place to play, but is a part of your destructive arsenal."
From out of nowhere, a new enemy attacked. Major metropolitan areas were hit with a never-before-seen form of elemental warfare, plunged into darkness and chaos. In the aftermath, the Agency picked-up a hot lead – and now they'll stop at nothing to find the ones who knocked us down, to deliver a harsh dose of Justice... by any means necessary.
An island "paradise" in the grip of corporate psychopaths, gangsters and butchers, New Providence is home to the highly-secretive and exceedingly-sinister TerraNova. Built around the smoldering heart of a volcano only recently and mysteriously reignited, this mega-corp is exploiting every resource in the area – material and human – as they prepare for the next phase of their diabolical plan... and brace for the inevitable showdown with the Agency.
- Skills: Level up super-Agent skills to jump over skyscrapers, hurl trucks, and fight like a boss.
- As a super-powered Agent of Justice, you’re no ordinary member of the law. Collect Orbs and level your Agility skill to move as fast as lightning and clear enormous skyscrapers in a single vertigo-inducing leap as you explore the vertical world of Crackdown 3.
- Campaign Co-op: Play with up to four friends over Xbox Live to take out a criminal empire and use the city as a weapon against enemies.
- Wrecking Zone Multiplayer: Join with up to 10 agents online to tear the city apart piece by piece in a 100% destructible multiplayer arena, available with the purchase of Crackdown 3.
Crackdown 3 was announced at E3 in June 2014, simply titled Crackdown. It was envisioned to have the same futuristic look of the first game, but would follow an alternative timeline before the events of Crackdown 2.
