Does Crackdown 3 have four-player co-op?

Want to load up Crackdown 3 and play with three of your friends? We examine whether or not Crackdown 3 features four-player cooperative gameplay.


One of the things that Crackdown players love most is the game's ability to provide plenty of explosion-fueled fun for entire groups of players. Past releases in the series have accommodated between two and four players during cooperative play, but does Crackdown 3 have four-player co-op? Read on to learn more specifics about Crackdown 3's cooperative multiplayer offerings.

Does Crackdown 3 allow four-player cooperative play?

Unfortunately, Crackdown 3 does not include four-player cooperative play. Both Crackdown and Crackdown 2 featured two-player co-op, though Crackdown 2 upped the maximum of cooperative players to four. Somewhere during the development of Crackdown 3, Sumo Digital decided that two-player co-op would suffice, and support for four-player co-op was removed from the equation.

With that said, there's more than enough fun to be found for two cooperative players. Just about everything that's available during solo play can be found in cooperative sessions, including the ability to blow up chimera fields and even find Agent DNA to unlock further character customization options. To learn more about how it all works, be sure to stop by our guide on how to play Crackdown 3 in co-op.

We will give a word of warning to players looking to jump into Crackdown 3 cooperative play: be careful not to overwrite your world save. A quick prompt appears when joining multiplayer sessions that, if not properly considered, could overwrite any single-player progress. Consider this your warning: it happened to us, and it could happen to you too.

It may disappoint series followers to learn that Crackdown 3 does not support four-player cooperative play. However, a lack of two additional characters shouldn't take away from the game's enormous amount of actions and explosions.
