This Saturday, Microsoft Studios announced that Crackdown 3, their highly anticipated game will finally be released on Feb. 15, 2019.
The game will be available on Windows PC and Xbox One, and since it’s part of the Xbox Play Anywhere program, customers who buy either version will be able to play the other at no additional cost.
An Inside Xbox episode broadcast live from X018 in Mexico City featured a new trailer for Crackdown 3 that focused on the game’s competitive multiplayer mode, Wrecking Zone.
The Wrecking Zone online mode uses physics technology powered by Azure, Microsoft’s cloud computing platform. In Wrecking Zone, two teams of five agents duke it out in a fully destructible arena. The trailer showcased players breaking through walls and blowing up bridges.
Look for more articles on this site talking about how Azure powers the modern video game. Microsoft has done a great job looking for every innovative way to expand on cloud computing and being a force multiplier for video game processing power is a great way.
