Crackdown 3 Trailer Brings the Guns to Xbox One X in November

Crackdown 3 Trailer Brings the Guns to Xbox One X in November

Crackdown is back, baby.

Terry Crews took the stage at Microsoft's E3 presentation today to introduce Crackdown 3, debuting a new trailer. Crackdown 3 hits November 7, the same day as the Xbox One X.

Crackdown 3 was announced three years ago at Microsoft's E3 2014 press conference. Phil Spencer introduced the title with the promise that with the power of cloud computing technology, Crackdown 3 would take advantage of faster physics so as to create a more destructible city, completely destructible if the previews are anything to go by.

The E3 trailer was full of 'tude with Crews acting as the perfect spokesman for the highly chaotic, super destructive Crackdown sequel. However, the trailer itself was a showcase for the game's single-player campaign, the first ever look at Crackdown 3's non-multiplayer portion.

The Gamescom 2015 reveal demonstrated this focus on cloud computing destruction, with the Cloudgine's Dave Jones promising 20 times more power through the cloud than the Xbox One console alone.

Crackdown 3 will blow up its way to your Xbox One and One X on November 7
