Crackdown 3 will let you wreck an entire city in 2016

We got our first glimpse of Crackdown 3, and if the gameplay video is any indication, it's going to let us blow up a whole damn city. Most of the gameplay shown was in a pre-alpha state (and usually over the shoulder of some developer eagerly plugging away), but Crackdown is coming to Xbox One in 2016, and is bringing with it a whole slew of improvements.

The biggest addition this time around is the new, fully destructible city. Whether you're grabbing power orbs in single player or battling criminals in the online multiplayer, every single building, bridge, and structure can be toppled with enough firepower. The buildings crumble good. The city isn't just a destructive playground - it's also the host of a web of criminal activities for you to apply your unique brand of justice.
