Destroy All of Crackdown 3's City With Cloud Tech

It's been too long since the justice-powered Agents of Crackdown bounded from building to building, casting their own, slightly unhinged net of the "protect and serve" philosophy. New info exploded out of Gamescom this week about the upcoming Crackdown 3, which we haven't seen a lick of since its unveiling at E3 2014. They're not talking too much about story or gameplay just yet, or actually saying how many players can co-op it. New claims have emerged, however, and they're pretty meaty.

[E3 2014] - Crackdown Reboot Revealed for Xbox One

Let's be honest. Who really cares about "collateral damage"? Certainly not the explosively-inclined cops of the new Crackdown game revealed today at E3. Yes, everyone's favorite police brutality simulator is being rebooted exclusively for Xbox One. Not too many details have emerged, but it is revealed to have some form of co-op. We can also assume everything is going to be on fire or blowing up.

A beautiful tease at what could have been.

Streets of Rage Remake was in the Works at Crackdown 2 Developer

So here's an odd story.  Ruffian Games, creators of Crackdown 2, were working with SEGA on remaking the classic Streets of Rage franchise for modern day consoles.  A two minute video was leaked to the internet showcasing the game's graphics, environments, and even some gameplay.  It's easy to see some of the Crackdown influence in the fighting engine, but it definitely looks like this could have worked.

Why an open world makes co-op better

The Open World is Scary - Bring Backup

A million billion years ago (OK, more like 2008), I wrote an article about open world co-op games and their overall awesomeness. The examples I used were Crackdown and GTA IV, but the list wasn’t a long one to choose from at the time, though Mercenaries 2 and Saints Row 2 came out around the time of the article and didn’t get a fair mention. Well, it’s been four years. Have the co-op gods been good to open world fans?

Ruffian Games' New Game Underway, Possibly New IP

Ruffian Games, the developer behind Crackdown 2, has some rather interesting teases for what could be their next game. Last January, the Scotland based team was in search of some more programmers to help them work on some "really exciting, high action, visceral titles that are heavily focused on online [components]." Speculation began about what their next game might be, if it would have co-op, and if it would be another Crackdown title. Now, word comes from Ruffian that the company has "signed a major contract with one of the biggest publishers in the industry."
