A hint at Crackdown's downloadable content?

A hint at Crackdown's downloadable content?

One of the developers of Crackdown uploaded this image to the game's official forum without more informations, but it looks like this could be part of this excellent's game downloadable content. Buggy races on the beach? Where do I sign?

hmmm, there are 5 buggies, I wonder what the limit is?

That looks drawn to me.... no real shadows and the shading on the exhausts looks strange... kinda like a painting.

The art director of Crackdown said it's not cell shading (and doesn't like it when people call it that) but a more complicated and more cpu/gpu intensive technique. What it was I don't remember, but it's not just simple cell shading.

That's the idea.

looks good. too bad it seems to take at least 4 months on any 360 game to even get siplest patch done and making it available to people. So this is propably not coming anytime soon (whatever it is).

well what ever the art director says it is,its simply cell shading,it looks same as other cell shaded games so i think he must have just wanted to seem original.

but whatever he called it it still lookd very graphically impre4ssive eitrher way and i loved the game,i think the content is alittle late though for many unless its free

... unless its free
there will be free content, at least to fill up the missing 100 achievement points of crackdown.

i really like the buggies (i can only see 4 of them), may there be an enhancement in multiplayer so up to 4 people can play coop??
the buggies all have different colored "wings", so crackdown may just get new multiplayer modes (like 4-player races, but no coop for up to 4 players).

just a guess...

best regards,

well u never know with microsoft do ya if things will be free,epic made some content due for release anyday now and they waned to make it free but micorsoft are putting a 500point price on it,i think that the marketplace is being turn into a gian screwing machine as of late,taking as much money as they can,i think they should lower the cost of points or retail cost of points

@Ramiuk: Microsoft promised that if a game dosnt have the full 1000 gamepoints..like crackdown..the last points to achive should b in a free downloadable content
Commented on 2007-04-26 15:29:18
word is this new buggy content wont be part of the free dlc
Commented on 2007-04-26 15:30:06
Loving the buggies. I Hope this is hinting to 4 player co-op. I'd rather have that, than races.

If you look at one of the drivers you'll notice that it is no Agent driving... but a peace keeper!

cool didnt know that,crackdown is the first game to only have 900 though isnt it?


thanks for the info,learn something new everyday
Commented on 2007-04-26 15:43:05
Nah some of the early games had less than 1000 points

That's the idea.
Oh right, haven't really seen much of the game if I'm honest

that's true. Condemned for example only had 970 GP.

But they already commited that Crackdown will come with free DLC to reach the final 1000 GP. The buggies may be in an additional DLC release that costs, but the content to achieve the missing 100 GP is said to be free.

Indeed, one of the staff from oxm has hinted that Crackdown could do an oblivion and get an extra 250 points after the free 100 have come out

there are two buggies in the distance (check out the wings and the wheels)

anyway, hope this content is part of the pack that will include the remaining 100 gamerpoints for free

EDIT: its hard to tell whether its 4 or 5, 4 would make sense but it deffo looks like there could be two in the distance. apologies if im wrong however

Cool. I really gotta pick this up. But between GH2 and the inexorable coming of Mass Effect, I don't know if i'll have time...
