Single and multiplayer mash-up promised in Crackdown on Xbox One
Crackdown has always been a series about blurring the lines between single and multiplayer and it looks like the Xbox One Crackdown game will be taking this even further.
Microsoft Game Studios creative director Ken Lobb has promised that players will be able to switch between single and multiplayer elements of Crackdown at will.
"Crackdown was on of the first drop-in, drop-out co-op games, but we're going more towards 'there's just the game',” Lobb began. “You're playing the game, it's single, it's co-op, it's a mash-up. Choose at will in the game, instead of hiding behind menus and loads and lobbies. Just make the gameplay as if it's one big thing."
The new Crackdown game is being developed by the series creator, Dave Jones' new studio Cloudgine. Jones has promised that the new game will leverage the power of Microsoft's cloud to bring in a whole new level of multiplayer experience.
