To say that Crackdown 3 has had a difficult time in development is something of an understatement, but at last, fans of the series have been able to get a better idea of how the game is shaping up due to a new trailer. The third part of the Crackdown series has been lauded as one of the best up and coming Xbox exclusives, with the game purely sitting on Microsoft's machine from a console release perspective.
Much like some other Xbox exclusive games, however, Crackdown 3 is proving to be something of a challenge to build. The game's initial 2017 launch was pushed back into 2018, before word began to spread just days before the start of E3 that the game was then going to launch in 2019. This was then unfortunately confirmed, with fans left disappointed that the wait was still on for the title.
Perhaps fans can find solace in the launch of a new trailer at E3 2018, however. The trailer showcases a lot more about Crackdown 3, and will no doubt make some gamers feel as though the wait for the title may well be worth it when the game does see retail release next year - with a serious look at the firepower available in the game to boot. Check out the trailer in question at the top of this article.
The new trailer for Crackdown 3 has a trademark neon tinge to it, all the while keeping things nice and self-referential. After initially showcasing some of the more athletic abilities that players will have in the game, the trailer then moves on to some of the weaponry that Crackdown 3 will show off in the final product. Finishing things off with a look at the game's vehicles, it certainly makes a big and bold impression.
The trailer definitely manages to convey the energy that Crackdown 3 aims to emulate, in part thanks to another terrific performance from Terry Crews. Meanwhile, this exciting but brief look at the game in action will definitely give gamers a better idea of what to expect when the game launches next year.
Whether that is entirely enough to keep fans of the Crackdown franchise from asking further questions remains to be seen, however. After all, the game is one of the most anticipated in the Xbox One's future lineup, and no doubt many will want to see more. Hopefully, Microsoft will be able to comply soon.
