Somehow, despite all the buzz around Crackdown 3, we never made a separate thread for it.

The big deal with Crackdown 3 is that the Red Faction-esque multiplayer environmental destruction is done through “the power of the cloud.” Unfortunately, this means that the single player campaign does not feature the “full” destruction tech. (Whatever that means.) You get “limited destruction” because you’re supposed to be saving the city. Presumably, it’s also so players don’t destroy stuff that is essential to campaign progression. On the up side, you can play the single player campaign offline.
The devs talked about this a bit in the Twitch broadcast (about 4 hours in).
