Sumo Digital has confirmed that the ability to squad up with your friends and match-make on Crackdown 3: Wrecking Zone is close to being released.

The feature was missing from the game’s initial launch and has been much requested by fans.

To try and ensure the launch of squads is relatively smooth, they have detailed a play test for Xbox Insiders.

The play test will run on April 11th from 11:00am – 12:30pm PST/ 107:00PM – 08:30PM BST and will be open to all Xbox Insiders even if you did not take part in the previous play tests for the game.

Full details on how to participate and squad up can be found below:

How to participate:

If you participated in the Technical Test previously, simply be sure your “Wrecking Zone Technical Test” client is updated to the latest build before the playtest begins. If you’re not sure which client to launch or need to re-install:

  1. Launch the Xbox Insider Hub.
  2. Navigate to Insider content > Games > Wrecking Zone Technical Test.
  3. Select “See in Store” and install or launch Wrecking Zone from the Store page.

If you didn’t get a chance to participate in the Technical Test previously, here’s how to join:

  1. On your Xbox One console or Windows 10 PC, sign in and launch the Xbox Insider Hub app.
  2. Navigate to Insider content > Games > Wrecking Zone Technical Test.
  3. Select Join.
  4. Wait for the registration to complete (Pending will switch to Manage), and you’ll be redirected to the Store where you can install Crackdown 3: Wrecking Zone Technical Test.

How to Squad Up:

We realize many of you might not have friends in this Tech Test pool and that’s A-OK. Invite them to participate in the Tech test, or  help test the new Squad features by adding some players you’ve recently been teamed up with as friends. Here’s how:

  1. Launch ‘Wrecking Zone Technical Test.’
  2. Play a session of Agent Hunter as a single user. This will add players to your Recent Players list.
  3. Once you’re in a match, open the Gamercard of the other users in the lobby and add them as a friend.  This can also be done by opening the Guide >People >Recent Players option.
  4. When you’ve completed the match, return to the main game menu, invite others to your squad or join someone else’s. A squad supports a maximum of 5 players
  5. Queue up for Agent Hunter.
  6. Play the Agent Hunter match through to completion and return to the main menu with your squad after the match ends.
  7. Continue playing Agent Hunter with a squad until the playtest ends!
