The folks over at Microsoft announced today that they will be releasing a demo of Crackdown on January 18th with the full game shipping to stores a little over a month later.  The game looks interesting and I'm interested to see how this one shapes up.


Justice Is Served: Crackdown on Crime This February

The highly anticipated Xbox 360 title Crackdown explodes onto Xbox Live Marketplace with an exciting single-player and online cooperative demo Jan.18, followed by its arrival on store shelves Feb. 20.

Pacific City is overridden; crime controls the streets. Three powerful gangs have taken the once-great metropolis hostage, and the police have proven powerless in their efforts to regain control. Only the Agency  with genetically enhanced agents of justice  can provide citizens with some sense of hope.

 

Brace yourself. Justice is coming to Pacific City.

 

On Jan. 18, gamers will get the chance to battle their way through the roads and rooftops of Crackdown as the Xbox 360 titles explosive demo lands on Xbox Live. Marketplace. And for the ultimate payback, they will combine forces in online co-op play for twice the thrills and double the retribution.*

 

Gamers will arm themselves with high-tech weapons, transformable vehicles and incredible, gravity-defying superskills in preparation to take back Pacific City when Crackdown storms North American store shelves Feb. 20.

 

From Realtime Worlds, Crackdown pushes the action-driving hybrid genre into the next generation with the first-ever truly 3-D playground. Gamers will level up their Agents strength, agility, firearms, explosives and driving skills while scaling the fully vertical world of Crackdown. This M-rated game incorporates revolutionary co-op gameplay throughout the entire free-form campaign. Creating a volatile cocktail of judicial oppression, players will clean up the streets of a truly interactive world when Crackdown hits store shelves at an estimated retail price of $59.99.
