Somehow, a transforming car is perfectly logical for Crackdown.

David Jones, head of Reagent Games, showed off the first Crackdown 3 gameplay at Microsoft’s Gamescom press conference today in Cologne, Germany. The fighting — and we saw a lot in the trailer — takes place in a “dangerous new city, once glistening metropolis” with destructible environments and multiplayer combat. You can drive a car that transforms as you go to different loctaions.

The trailer showed that multiplayer begins summer 2016. One tantalizing fact: Microsoft said that the game will connect to the Microsoft Cloud, tapping computing power that will be 20 times more than that of your Xbox One game console.
