One of next year’s most anticipated titles, Crackdown is set to explode onto the Xbox Live Marketplace in January with a multiplayer demo. Set your watches, alarms or even make a Crackdown Advent Calender to count down the days until its release on the 18th January.
The full press release follows:
“Pacific City is overridden; crime controls the streets. Three powerful gangs have taken the once-great metropolis hostage and the police have proven powerless in their efforts to regain control. Only the Agency – with genetically enhanced agents of justice – can provide citizens with some sense of hope.
Brace yourself. Justice is coming to Pacific City.
On 18th January, 2007, gamers will be given the chance to battle their way through the roads and rooftops of “Crackdown” as the title’s explosive demo lands on Xbox Live Marketplace. And for the ultimate payback, they will combine forces in online co-op play for twice the thrills and double the retribution.
Gamers will arm themselves with high-tech weapons, transformable vehicles and incredible, gravity-defying super-skills in preparation to take back Pacific City when “Crackdown” storms European store shelves on 23rd February, 2007.
From Real Time Worlds, “Crackdown” pushes the action-driving hybrid genre into the next generation with the first ever truly 3-D playground. Gamers will level up their Agent’s strength, agility, firearms, explosives and driving skills while scaling the fully vertical world of “Crackdown.” This 15-rated game incorporates revolutionary co-op gameplay throughout the entire freeform campaign. Creating a volatile cocktail of judicial oppression, players will clean up the streets of a truly interactive world when ”Crackdown” hits store shelves at a suggested retail price of £44.99.”
