Crackdown 3 will finally let you team up with friends in its multiplayer Wrecking Zone mode. The Crackdown 3 team today announced a fresh update is rolling out to the game, bringing Squads to Wrecking Zone, letting you recruit friends to help you take on other squads online.
The game initially launched without support for partying up with others in its competitive multiplayer mode, which was a disappointment for many. The omission was perplexing considering the titles focus on multiplayer mayhem, backed by its cloud-based destruction physics. But it's better late than never.
In addition to adding support for Xbox Live parties, the Crackdown team also revealed that it's making a few DLC packs for the original Crackdown and Crackdown 2 available for free. For the first entry, you'll now be able to snag the "Getting Busy" DLC, while Crackdown 2's "Deluge" and "Toybox" packs are free as well.
Heads-up, Agents! Today, we're releasing an update that brings Squad-support to Wrecking Zone! We're also making CD1's "Getting Busy" DLC as well as CD2's "Deluge" and "Toybox" packs FREE to download. So grab those bits, gather your friends, and have a BOOMTASTIC weekend! pic.twitter.com/RnlGMeaLKb— Crackdown (@crackdown) April 19, 2019
