Crackdown 3 impressed everyone at Gamescom 2015 with its cloud-powered, mass-scale destruction, courtesy of Microsoft Cloud. Unfortunately, the 100 percent destruction it promises can only be experienced in multiplayer mode and not in single-player or co-op.
Having had the chance to speak with the game’s developer, VideoGamer.com News Editor David Scammell says Crackdown 3
’s single player campaign won’t have the huge 100 percent destruction that had everyone’s jaw drop. In other words, the fact that the game can be played offline limits the cloud-based destruction to online-only modes.

developer Dave Jones
was quoted as saying:
“Campaign is fully playable offline, up to 4-players when you’re online in co-op. Then multiplayer is a whole new experience.
We do not use that [cloud processing] in the campaign game. We wanted to create a very different experience for multiplayer. We wanted players to have the campaign game they always loved, and if they want to play it offline then they absolutely should be able to.”
Online co-op play uses the same map as single player and, as such, doesn’t feature the 100 percent destructible environment. Jones stressed that “the 100% destructible environments is limited to multiplayer.”
