Surprise Crackdown 3 Flying High Update Adds More Free Achievements

By Rebecca Smith,
Developer Sumo Digital had always been open about their plans for Crackdown 3, and were were expecting the Keys to the City update at the end of last month. Now they've decided to give us a free surprise. Today's Flying High update adds more gadgets for players to use, most notably an Agency Wingsuit, and they're accompanied by new achievements for Crackdown 3: Campaign.

There are 16 achievements worth a total of 500 Gamerscore, 3 of which are secret (to reveal the details of the secret achievements, please use this link).

The new Agency Wingsuit gives players a new way of getting around the city. Whether it's soaring to the top of buildings, aerial attacks on enemies, or taking on one of the seven new Wingsuit races, the suit aims to add more fun to the mayhem. There are also new ways to call in reinforcements. The Hellstorm Flare triggers air strikes from the Island Defense Turrets, while the Agency Peacekeeper Beacon calls the Civilian Militia to the area.

If you'd rather go about things yourself, there are new ways of getting rid of enemies. In homage to Crackdown's Quacker grenade, there's a new Clusterduck grenade that sets off a chain reaction of explosions. Meanwhile, the Elemental Forge allows access to four melee weapons that each have their own unique elemental effects. There's a Flaming Sword, an Electric Hammer, and Ice Mace, and the Chimera Axe that releases poison clouds.

The Flying High update is available right now.
