Crackdown Xbox One was revealed during Microsoft’s E3 2014 conference this week, but it’s not actually the first time the project has been shown in public. Chances are you’ve seen it running already.
If you missed Microsoft’s Crackdown Xbox One reveal trailer, you can watch it through the link. A lot of stuff explodes, so if you’re tired or hungover this morning you may want to turn the volume down a notch. I say this because I care.
Back in April, YouTuber Arekkz Gaming brought our attention to this Microsoft cloud presentation at the company’s Build conference in San Francisco.

The game you’e seeing there is Crackdown Xbox One, as confirmed by Microsoft’s Phil Spencer:
