Crackdown 3 Wrecking Zone party support expected in '2 to 3 weeks'

Microsoft has debuted its latest in-house Xbox-exclusive, Crackdown 3, for Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs. Despite mixed reviews, its crazed action-adventure gameplay has drawn a sizeable pool of players, driven by the Xbox Game Pass subscription service. And after hitting stores shelves, Microsoft is now outlining its post-launch plans for the title.

As detailed in its second developer update, the Crackdown team has committed to three significant fixes. The biggest task hopes to implement Xbox multiplayer parties in "2-3 weeks," recently sending engineers to Elbow Rocket in Scotland to "accelerate the work." Microsoft also hopes to address campaign save bugs by February 25, while promising a fix for an unlocked cooperative framerate on PC later down the line.

Since Crackdown 3 launched, the team has reportedly fixed 30 bugs, with more to come as they arise. And to bridge this wait, a free "Bonus Content Pack" has released, featuring a new weapon, suit, and vehicle.

After installing the bonus DLC, you'll have to do a few things to equip these new Agency goodies:

  • To look Boom-tastic in Commander Jaxon's Ultimate Suit: Create a new Agent or head to a Supply Point with an existing Agent, choose Agent Jaxon on the Agent selection screen, and then use the toggle to switch between regular and Commander Jaxon.
  • To drive in style with the Linebacker vehicle: Get to a Supply Point with a vehicle pad and select the Linebacker from your available inventory.
  • To equip the Quackhammer: Access any Supply Point, open the Loadout screen, scroll to the very bottom of the left hand column and select the Quackhammer.

Enjoy these new Tools of Justice Agents, keep the feedback coming, and we'll be back with another update early next week!

In the meantime, Crackdown 3 is now available on Xbox One and Windows 10 priced at $60. Alternatively, a $10 Xbox Game Pass subscription grants full access, alongside over 100 other titles.
