Crackdown coming to Xbox One from Cloudgine

A new Xbox One-exclusive was revealed at this year's Microsoft E3 Media Briefing and it's the return of an old favorite. That's right, Crackdown is back, bringing crime-busting action to a new neon city and it will feature full co-op action. It's coming from Platinum Games and that means it's filled with insane, manic action.

Update: The original post indicated that Crackdown was being developed by Platinum Games. This is not the case, as it is being developed by Cloudgine. Shacknews regrets this error and has updated the post.

A new Xbox One-exclusive was revealed at this year's Microsoft E3 Media Briefing and it's the return of an old favorite. That's right, Crackdown is back, bringing crime-busting action to a new neon city and it will feature full co-op action. It's coming from Cloudgine, comprised of former Crackdown developers, meaning more of the manic action of the original.

The trailer revealed a borderline Rube Goldberg-ian chain of events that led to an exploding tanker truck getting set off by a sniper rifle, sending it flying into a skyscraper and completely toppling it. Yes, it's Crackdown, folks.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
