Uses of 100% Destruction?
The game?was first announced at E3 2014 and it has now seemed to have improved its graphical capabilities immensely.
The game promises to capitalize on destruction to obliterate your enemy?s cover and bring down the entire place where your enemy is at. You can also make buildings crash on top of your enemies.
The 100% destructible elements feature however was only announced for multiplayer gameplay. It is yet to be known if it will be available in the single player campaign.
The game?will also bring a 4-person co-operative gameplay with ‘cutting-edge weapons’, mechs, and transforming vehicles, Microsoft News reported.

This ability enables players to leap high into the air and rain mayhem onto enemies by throwing cars and raining bullets on enemies
The game will be developed by its original creators, Dave Jones.
