Lest we all forget about its existence, Crackdown 3 is coming out next week and is probably going to face an uphill struggle against Far Cry New Dawn and Metro Exodus to garner much attention. One of the possible highlights in the long-in-development game is the Wrecking Zone multiplayer mode, which realises some of the original promise of a connected, fully destructible world.
To try and ensure that mode goes off without a hitch at launch, when any and every Xbox Game Pass subscriber will be able to jump into the chaos, Microsoft are holding a few technical test sessions. The first of these was actually last night, but two more are planned for Sunday. These are at:
- 12-2PM PT / 8-10PM GMT
- 7-9PM PT / 3-5AM GMT (Monday)
Thanks again Agents, we’ve got another successful Tech Test under our belt! We’re gonna keep the data and feedback flowing in with two more tests this Sunday! First from 12-2pm PST / 8-10pm UTC & again from 7pm – 9pm PST / 3am – 5am UTC. Hope you can bring the boom again then!

The one caveat is that you need to be an Xbox Insider to take part, but that is open to everyone. Simply download the Xbox Insider Hub from the Store on your Xbox One dashboard and, like a hacker in a 90s action film, you’re in. Launch the app, head to the Insider Content section and download the Wrecking Zone: Technical Test.
