Crackdown 3 managed to launch somehow after being in development hell, but the launch was shoddy and panned by both critics and fans. Developers now offered free DLC and a roadmap for future fixes along with some potential update notes.

Crackdown 3 is apparently looking at a slew of updates that include one free DLC pack. It will include Commander Jaxon's Ultimate Suit, so players will finally be able to channel their inner Terry Crews. Another bit of content from this pack will be an armoured SUV named Linebacker, with Quackhammer rocketlauncher topping the pack off.

Just like it sounds, this launcher will fire rubber ducks. Players will be able to claim this DLC pack by going to any Supply Point in Crackdown 3, provided they downloaded the pack first.

There are three major issues that the developers looked back at - Wrecking Zone party support, saves during campaign co-op and a bunch of other bugs. When it comes to Wrecking Zone, players will soon have party support, which should arrive two to three weeks from the time of posting the video that is embedded above.

Campaign saves were glitchy in some instances while playing co-op. There is a scheduled fix for this issue and should be released on Monday, 25 February 2019. Co-op was plagued by another issue for PC players though. Namely, their game was capped at 30 FPS which made no sense, especially for those with high end rigs. This issue is on the list for fixing but is still in testing.

The third point developers mentioned was regarding other bugs in Crackdown 3 and they stated that over 30 bugs have been fixed. These fixes should roll out with the next title update.

Crackdown 3 certainly didn't impress many people as both players and critics pointed out many glaring issues but it looks like Microsoft are keen on fixing them, for the moment at least. The developers will definitely have their work cut out for them, but it's not an impossible task. Ubisoft managed to turn several games from disastrous launch to popular titles.
