Ubisoft's MMO-CarPG The Crew Burning Rubber Fall 2014
Tom Clancy's The Division may have stolen the show at Ubisoft's E3 2013 Press Conference, but The Crew certainly wowed visitors and gamers alike. In fact, it wowed Troy and I so much that we both wound up awarding it Best Racing Game of E3 2013. Being co-developed by Ivory Tower and Ubisoft Reflections, The Crew is a persistent, online, open-world racing game set in the United States – the whole United States. While major cities will receive the most detail, you can actually seamlessly drive from coast to coast without any loading screens. Cities, forests, deserts, swamps – if the terrain exists in the US, it exists in the game.
Earlier today, Ubisoft announced that The Crew will be arriving on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in Fall 2014. Pre-ordering the game for PlayStation 4 or Xbox One automatically upgrades to the Limited Edition version, which provides early access to the BMW Z4 sDrive35is, Mini Cooper S, and Dodge Ram SRT-10, along with 10,000 bonus Crew Credits. Pre-ordering from GameStop provides the Muscle Edition, which includes everything in the Limited Edition along with early access to the 2014 Ford Mustang GT. There is no mention if the PC version will include any of these bonuses, and as of this writing, there is no Uplay or Steam store page for the game, so I cannot check.
