Crackdown 3 Launches on Xbox Game Pass

Posted on February 15, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Games, Xbox One with 7 Comments

Crackdown 3 is finally launching today after being delayed last year. The much-awaited title today launched on the Xbox One and Windows 10.

Crackdown 3 is part of Microsoft’s Xbox Play Anywhere program, meaning you can play it across your Windows 10 machine as well as your Xbox One. And that also means Microsoft is bringing it to Xbox Game Pass — if you are subscribed to Xbox Game Pass, you can start playing Crackdown 3 right away without having to buy the game. And that’s pretty crazy to think about, to be honest.

Microsoft obviously did this before with major titles like Forza Horizon 4 in the past, so it’s nothing new at all, but it’s still very crazy to see a major title being available for free through a subscription service like Xbox Game Pass.

I’m not a gamer, so here’s what Microsoft has to say about Crackdown 3:

Crackdown 3 is all about over-the-top fun, tons of explosions, and punching the baddies right in the face. You’ll need to deploy everything in your arsenal, whether it’s collecting those iconic green agility orbs to run faster and jump higher, knocking some heads together to increase strength, or causing an endless amount of mayhem and destruction against your enemies with unique and bombastic weapons at your disposal to build your firearm skill. Did we mention Oblivion? Just a fun little gadget that shoots a black hole at enemies. No big deal.

You should be able to download Crackdown 3 on your Xbox One through the Game Pass app on your phone, too. Microsoft is even offering 2 months of Xbox Game Pass for only $2 to new subscribers, so if you don’t have the service yet, this might be the best time to get into it if you are looking to play Crackdown 3.

    This game looks ROUGH. More like a 360 game. But hopefully the game play is fun. I'm going to give it a shot since it's on Game Pass, but I don't think anyone should drop $60 for it. It's at a 54 on Metacritic right now.

    Update: I’m shocked to say that I’m actually having a lot of fun with the game. I still wouldn’t want to pay $60 for it, but really good for a Game Pass game.

    Given the reviews I think free is a fair price.

    Wrecking Zone is a blast. I just hope they add more maps

    Looks great for an Xbox 360 game in 2007...

    Don't care for Xbox anymore (MS finally drove me to Playstation when they cancelled Scalebound), but just had to look up what reviews have to say about Microsoft's latest major AAA game. I assess the PC score gives a more accurate impression of the quality of the game, since on PC there is competition whereas XBox is such a desolate place, that people relying on this console feast on a Swedish drink.

    Well, Xbox gamers, enjoy your Swedish drink, because Crackdown 3 hints at Xbox's mediocre and trivial future of titles. Gaming on XBox more and more morphs into onany in a world that provides lecherous bacchanaliae in other places.

    Pathetic. With Xbox One ratings 60 is the new 90

    Crackdown 3 is the great game. Now I'm happy it's came to the Xbox.
