Crackdown 3 hasn't garnered the best reviews since launch. A lot of gamers have criticized it for its poor story and unpolished multiplayer. In order to make it up to players, Microsoft just released the free update for the game. The small download adds even crazier weapons to the title.
Today, Xbox Games Studios announced the "Flying High" update for Crackdown 3. This free download adds new ways to explore and conquer the vertical world of New Providence. According to the company, Flying High includes new gadgets to collect, new Xbox Achievements to earn, and four new over-the-top melee weapons in the form of the "Elemental Forge." For example, the new "Cluster Duck" grenade and its chain-reaction explosions are quite devastating.
Instead of a prolonged wait, the Crackdown 3 Flying High update is out now. You can purchase the game for Xbox One for $30 on Amazon, or play it through Xbox Game Pass. Xbox Game Pass costs $10 a month and gives you access to over two hundred games immediately. Major "AAA" titles like The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Just Cause 4 are included with the service.

Finished the campaign, tried the broken multiplayer. Not planning to play again
Same, played through the campaign, then tried the Multiplayer and uninstalled it after two games.
Wish you could destroy the whole city like they originally planned. The game has a lot of potential. I wish I could fight other agents in the campaign.
