The kind of destruction I'm seeing in Control is what I expected to see in Crackdown 3.

Just got a new mission with absolutely no idea how to get to it. I’m probably gonna throw in the towel on this one. I’m barely playing it but when I do I get stuck pretty often!

Nothing against the game, and I may just be getting lost because I’m stupid lol, but I don’t get a ton of time to game so it’s not turning out to be worth the effort for me.

Isn't it highlighted on the map? I'm gonna play again tonight. I haven't had too much trouble getting around and fast travel.

Usually it is, but not this time lol. I have no idea if it’s intentional or a bug

I think I remember one or two were like that. Not that the map is a great help anyway. I'd just recommend reading the description on the mission list to see if it has a general location there.

Will look at that tonight, thanks. On the top left of the hud it has the current mission and the area it’s in, but that area isn’t on my map.

I guess I could always check a walkthrough on YouTube but part of me would rather get rid of it. Gears and Borderlands are coming up quick!

Could it be because it’s in a more closed environment?
Could be, but again with what MS was hyping up with destruction in a game, Control pulled it off. With poor frame rate on consoles and weak PCs but they did pull it off.

Effects are brilliant but character models are a step down from QB

Enjoying it but the map is terrible

It's a throwback to early days when gamers didn't need curling to finish games.
Haven't played it yet (on vacation), but it prob will bother me a bit lol, we've been pampered for 3 generations of consoles now and I guess I'm getting soft.

Yeah that map is s***. Game is good. Mission 4 now.
Yeah, if I had to rely on the map I'd have been fu-diddly-ucked. Fortunately, the prevalence of signs with directions pointing to areas helped a lot.

Personally, I loved the game and Easter eggs, not fond of no difficulty sliders, though, and I would forgive anything just because of the section where you wear headphones.

To our Xbox One and PC players, DO NOT PANIC! This update is heading your way very soon.

As many of you will know, bug fixing and submission times vary across each platform, which is why we’re not out on all formats yet! All being well, we won’t keep you waiting very long. Stay tuned to our social media channels for more info.

In the meantime, take a look at what you can expect as part of our latest update…

Certain Altered Items - Objects of Power - cause large-scale Altered World Events, or AWEs. These AWEs seem to represent instance of other realms, perhaps other dimensions entirely...
