Tech giant Microsoft made an impressive presentation at this year's on-going 2015 GamesCom in Germany and offered a slew of several announcements and revelations for its Xbox game console.
The gaming fans were treated with an exciting presentation of Microsoft's latest Crackdown 3, which will be released exclusively for its Xbox One platform, using a cloud technology that allows for 100% destructible environments, reported The Bit Bag.
Microsoft unveiled a two-and-a-half minute trailer of Crackdown 3 detailing how the cloud technology can aid the Xbox One to multiply its computing power by more than 20 times. Crackdown 3 uses the destructible prowess of Microsoft Cloud Azure and Cloudgine.
Harness 20 times the power of your Xbox One to unleash 100 percent destructible environments for the first time ever in gaming and create your own explosive stories in the process.
Cloudgine claims its cloud technology provides tools and expertise to bring a new 'revolutionary paradigm'. The company stated, "By leveraging the immense power available within data centres, computationally intensive game components such as physics and A.I. can be supercharged in order to deliver game experiences that go well beyond what any console or PC can offer now or in the future."
However, the 100% destructible feature of Crackdown 3 can only be utilized for multiplayer gameplay. Microsoft did not provide details if the feature will also be available in the game's single player campaign.
Honoring the classic, open-world Crackdown experience adored by fans, Crackdown 3 is bringing you a 4-person co-operative campaign enhanced with a new dynamic story, cutting-edge weapons and vehicles, enemies you'll love to hate - and of course, tons of orbs to collect, said Microsoft News.
Microsoft claims that the next installment of Crackdown will bring an amazing "revolutionary multiplayer" and an "ultimate sandbox experience" inside its great looking neon-lit metropolis which can be completely destroyed. The trailer gives players insights on the game's destructible capabilities from destroying simple objects, such as glass doors to blowing buildings and whole environments.
Crackdown 3 was first announced at E3 2014 and Microsft's GamesCom presentation showed a big improvement in graphics features.
During the GamesCom presentation, Microsoft made some interesting announcements for Xbox One, including revelation that its new interface will now be powered by Windows 10. It said that the redesigned dashboard will emphasize speed, performance and simplicity. For Xbox One users with Kinect, Windows 10's Cortana will also offer gamers audio controls, Tech Crunch said.
