    The Crew (PC/PS4/XB1/360)



    Spoiler: show
    Today at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, Ubisoft revealed The Crew, a revolutionary online action-driving game developed for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and for PC, to be released early 2014.

    Development of The Crew is being led by Ivory Tower, a team of racing game veterans and an exclusive partner to Ubisoft, in collaboration with several Ubisoft studios including Reflections, a Ubisoft studio, best known for its work on the Driver franchise.

    The Crew propels gamers on a reckless ride through a massive open world version of the United States of America, brimming with exciting challenges and diverse terrain - from city to suburb, county to county, state to state, coast to summit. The Crew redefines the level of freedom players experience in a driving game by offering a playground of unprecedented scope in which any driving fantasy can be realized: street, dirt, cross-country, circuit and more.

    To bring that vision to life, The Crew leverages the capabilities of new hardware to connect players online like never before. The Crew's persistent online world is populated by other real players, meaning any other car is a potential rival or ally, and naturally fostering both competition and cooperation among players. This living world provides a tailored experience to a new generation of gamers, as each player is given the choice to play alone, or to team up on-the-go with friends to accomplish collective challenges.

    Finally, players can continue to interact with The Crew game world on a second screen via the companion application that will be available soon for iOS and Android devices. The Crew companion app will allow for peripheral, complementary experiences, providing a more intricate player experience overall.

    "We want to give players a driving experience that goes way beyond the classic circuit-based racing games and really captures the boundless sense of freedom of driving across the U.S.," said, Julian Gerighty, creative director, Ubisoft. "Our teams are harnessing the power of next-generation platforms to make The Crew a challenging, immersive and non-stop world that can be shared by millions of players. This is a brand new driving game experience unlike anything that's come before it."

    Today, Ubisoft announced that The Crew will be available this fall for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and PC.

    The Crew is a revolutionary action-driving game that takes gamers on an exhilarating ride throughout a massive, open-world recreation of the United States, brimming with exciting challenges and populated by other real players.

    The Crew’s worldwide premiere gameplay trailer, released today, shows four cars, each with different tuning specs and riding in an iconic region of the United States, forming a crew to continue their journey together across the living, breathing open-world.

    From April 8th, players will be able to win exclusive rewards through the Golden Plates treasure hunt. Golden Plates are license plates hidden within the game assets (screenshots, trailers, etc.) that have already been revealed or that will be revealed until the launch of The Crew. At launch, submitting the license plate code into the dedicated website hub will unlock in-game rewards, goodies and mystery rewards.

    The Crew is now available for pre-order in two different editions for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The Limited Edition will grant early access to rides that will prepare gamers for any road—and off-road—conditions. Players who pre-order this edition will receive early access to the BMW Z4 sDrive35is, Mini Cooper S, and Dodge Ram SRT-10 and their respective sets of full custom and performance parts. The Muscle Edition, which can only be pre-ordered at GameStop, will include all early unlock content from the Limited Edition and will also grant exclusive early access to the 2015 Ford Mustang GT. Both Editions include 10,000 bonus Crew Credits. Players can pre-order The Crew for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at their local retailers.

    1080p and 30FPS
    The Crew, Ubisoft’s new-gen racer, is confirmed to run at 1080p and 30 frames-per-second on Xbox One and PS4. Ah this old thing again…

    Creative director Julian Gerighty confirmed it to Videogamer during a recent preview event.

    Gerighty added that the PC build won’t be too different to the console versions and added that Ivory Tower is, “really trying to get parity across all versions, so it’s something that’s important to us not to branch out and not do individual things for individual platforms.”

    On PS4 he added, “Reflections is doing the PS4 version and they’re doing an incredible job on it. We’ll be using the trackpad to manipulate the map and stuff like that, so they’ve really pushed two or three different things there.”

    I was really excited about this game and honestly i don't know why. Got to play the beta and afterwards I don't know what I was expecting. I'm not a racing fan and while the map is huge and it's interesting to drive everywhere... I just don't think this game will change my mind about racing games.

    I wish Florida were really shaped like a potato, would make it far easier to drive the fuck out of Miami. As it is its a 6-7ish hour drive to get to Georgia.

    Beta #2 coming on August 25th
    It’s time to drive very fast across the US again in The Crew, thanks to another closed beta on PC.

    The next tester will go live on August 25.

    Last month the beat ran from July 21 through July 25. It was a nice surprise, because it wasn’t scheduled to go live until July 23.

    You can guarantee access to the beta by pre-purchasing the game, or register for a key through the official website for The Crew.

    360 version announced, being developed by the people who made Fuel
    Ubisoft has announced that it’s open-world racer The Crew, thought to be a new-gen only game, will have a last-gen release – but only on Xbox 360.

    The news emerged at gamescom this morning. The Xbox 360 version is developed by Asobo Studio, who previously made Fuel. At the moment we haven’t been given a reason why it’s not coming to PS3.
    http://www.vg247.com/2014/08/13/the-...iler-gameplay/

    It's not coming to PS3 because it's too confusing to develop for
    The Crew is an ambitious game with an incredibly large open world, so we never really expected it to be ported to the last generation of consoles.

    So yesterday’s announcement that The Crew is coming to Xbox 360 was something of a surprise – but surprise was quickly replaced by disgruntlement among PS3 owners. Why not them, too?

    Ubisoft has an answer: it’s just easier on the PC-like Xbox 360.

    “The Crew was originally built for the new generation of consoles, so when we made the decision to port it to the previous generation, we decided to focus solely on the platform closest to the new-gen’s technical infrastructure, which is the Xbox 360,” an Ubisoft representative said in a statement to Kotaku.

    Oh. You know, that makes a lot more sense than the reasons I came up with yesterday in a fit of tinfoil-hate conspiracy theorising. The PS3′s complicated (but rewarding) architecture is widely recognised – that’s why Sony was so careful to make the PS4 easy to work with.

    Of course, this isn’t entirely satisfactory, and PS3 owners have a right to feel disappointed. “We can’t be bothered because it is hard” is not exactly conciliatory.
