Crackdown 3 was supposed to launch many months ago, but was pushed back to February 15, 2019 to polish up the experience. Luckily, it looks like this release date will stick because it's available for digital preorder now through the Xbox Store. You can buy it for $59.99, or you can grab it with Xbox Game Pass, for $9.99 per month.
Aside from a campaign which centers around destroying everything in your path, Crackdown 3 features a lot of multiplayer options. You can play together and against each other in matches where you're tasked with destroying the city.
The description of the game states, "Time to step up your boom and stop crime as a super-powered Agent in Crackdown 3's open-world sandbox of mayhem and destruction. Explore the heights of New Providence, tear up the streets in iconic vehicles, and use your powerful abilities to stop a ruthless criminal empire. Play the campaign solo or with a friend in co-op mode, or compete in the all-new multiplayer mode where destruction is your ultimate weapon."
In our preview, we said, "The towering environments Crackdown 3's collaborators have built for the game are gorgeous, made all the more exciting when you tear them down, explosion by explosion. We just hope that they're not relegated to gimmick status by the multiplayer systems layered on top of it, which at least for now, are indeed infectiously fun, but potentially lacking in staying power."
