Crackdown 3

The Crackdown 3 Technical Stress Test is coming this week on Xbox One and PC!

[Editor’s note 2: At the time of this post, playtests were only planned for Thursday, February 7th; however, two new playtests have been added on Sunday, February 10th. Learn more here.]

[Editor’s note 1: The second playtest time was originally listed as 9 p.m. – 11 p.m. PST (5 a.m. – 7 a.m. UTC), which is incorrect. The second playtest window will actually occur from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. PST (3 a.m. – 5 a.m. UTC).]
