The first Crackdown is free ahead of Crackdown 3’s launch
Crackdown 3 is finally about to come out, with its February 15 release for Xbox One and PC looming. But if you can’t wait until then, you can play a different (and older) Crackdown experience right now on your Xbox One — for free.
Crackdown came out for the Xbox 360 back in 2007. The open-world action game became a hit thanks to its focus on super-powered combat. It also didn’t hurt that it came with a demo for Halo 3. You won’t get that Halo 3 demo now, but Crackdown may still be worth checking out.
After Crackdown’s success, a sequel came out in 2010 for the Xbox 360. Since then, it’s been a long wait for Crackdown 3, which wasn’t announced until 2014 and then suffered multiple delays.
