Crackdown 3 has been in development for quite a long time and the game is finally going to be released on February 15th. To drive up the hype for this title, Microsoft has decided to offer the original Crackdown title free for the Xbox One. The original title was launched back in 2010 for the Xbox 360.

Even though the game was first launched for the Xbox 360, like many other titles from that time, it’s not backwards compatible on the Xbox One S and Xbox One X. The title is being offered for free to any and all Xbox One owners, even those who haven’t pre-ordered Crackdown 3.

This offers players who have never experienced Crackdown before to get a sense of the franchise before they decide whether or not they want to spend money on the latest title. This isn’t the first time that Microsoft is offering this game for free, though. It previously did that during its XO18 fan festival in November last year.

Many are undoubtedly looking forward to Crackdown 3. The game’s stress test has begun today so those who want to take part in the multiplayer test will be able to do so today. Microsoft has previously confirmed that Crackdown 3 will be added to Xbox Game Pass on the launch day itself.
