The Crew

The Crew, Ubisoft’s E3-announced open-world online racing game for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, will launch in fall 2014, the publisher announced.

A “gameplay trailer” released today shows four cars, each in a different region of the United States, forming a crew to race alongside.

The game will be available in two special editions when it launches:

  • Players who pre-order the limited edition will get early access to the BMW Z4 sDrive35is, Mini Cooper S, and Dodge Ram SRT-10, as well as their respective sets of full custom and performance parts.
  • Players who pre-order the “Muscle Edition,” only available through GameStop, will get all of the content from the Limited Edition, as well as early access to the 2015 Ford Mustang GT.

Both editions include 10,000 bonus Crew Credits.

Watch the new trailer below. View a new set of screenshots at the gallery.

      Looks interesting.Can you also play this game offline like Midnight Club and Test Drive?

      • Crossbones (Prodigy-X)

        I don’t know. I think you could but I’m not sure.

        • Kiryu

          Would be great if it’s offline too,love open world racing games and i rarely play online.

    • BossTuff

      Did you play NFS: Rivals? It’s pretty fun and looks great with the motion blur.

    • Budgiecat

      But can you pick up goldigger chicks in it?

    • 罪罰

      Like thats some sort of achievement.

    The Crew, The Crew, The Cre- ohhhh, THAT The Crew game. The one with always-online that would send you back to the title screen even in solo mode when your internet connection does as much as jump. And with microtransactions.

    I cannot support this kind of game even if I were a fan of the genre.

    • Sevyne

      The micro-transactions are insultingly disgusting in the game. They’re the type of shit you’d get in a F2P game, but I guarantee they’ll try to pawn this shit off as a full retail game on top of it. It’s insulting.

      • Aaron Lee

        Perhaps this could be a good sign. The more big publishers flirt with new ways to satiate their unmitigated greed by doing something as pernicious as microtransactions in a full retail game (as well trying to wrest as much control from the consumer as they can by having solo game modes be online as well, as if a dodgy MMO) in the long run, perhaps the sooner they are to their own eventual downfall.

        Perhaps one day the industry will realise that greed comes at an expense of consumer goodwill, and climb itself out of much of the sinkhole it’s stepped into thanks to the practices of people like EA and Ubisoft. Perhaps this may self-correct itself eventually.

        It’s either that or it carries on, if I’m to put my pessimistic hat on. The likes of EA and Ubisoft may be mortal, but I fear the business practices they’ve adopted and contorted into what we see nowadays remain and evolve by someone else into disgusting new heights.

        It’s probably why I never bother paying full price for so-called triple-A games…ever.

      Welcome to the future of gaming.
      And people lap it up for some reason. Unreal.

      Forced parity can go choke on a dick.

      What really kills me though are the micro-transactions in this game. It’s done the same way as a F2P game, but I’m willing to bet the game will still be on shelves for $60. It’s fucking disgusting.

      • EX+

        Well, I’m not buying this game. Thanks for that info about F2P/micro-transactions. I was actually thinking about getting this game.

  • Skerj

    Hyped for this. I always appreciated the ambition of Test Drive Unlimited/2 but the cars were not that fun to drive. If this one gets the formula right then many hours will be spent. Also I might actually buy Driveclub now if it comes out earlier than this.

    Not too happy with the permanent connection nonsense though. I’ve been there with titles launching on uPlay and when that crap doesn’t work, you’re screwed until it does and then you can set the game to play offline.
