Motley: Prepare To Accrue The Crew This Fall

By Nathan Grayson on April 9th, 2014.

Look for HIGH-OCTANE ACTION PARKING with friends on a FRIDAY NIGHT in a place where you DON'T REALLY KNOW YOUR WAY AROUND and you're sort of afraid that YOUR SWEET RIDE MIGHT GET BROKEN INTO if you leave it near all those WEIRD WAREHOUSES.

I’m sure Ubisoft’s enticingly open racer The Crew will provide oodles of entertainment if I can just make it past the title screen without face-planting into my steering wheel due to paralytic title-born boredom coma. The Crew sounds like the most generic thing in the world, and in some ways it looks the part too. The promise of having the entirety of the (truncated) United States open for traversal, however, is simply too tempting to resist. I am conflicted but hopeful. It’ll be out this fall, and there’s a new trailer below.

Why The Crew Absolutely Depends On Multiplayer

By Rich Stanton on October 4th, 2013.


Although everyone likes to throw around genre tags, it’s occasionally worth stopping to acknowledge they don’t really tell us anything. Take The Crew, Ubisoft’s upcoming open-world driving game. ‘Open world’ in this case means a lot of interconnected roads that have mission boundaries placed atop, a much larger but less sexy version of Burnout’s Paradise City. And as for the driving, I can’t think of a single other racer that plays out in quite this fashion.

Forgive the pun, but The Crew’s in the title. Let’s explain that joke, in painful detail, below.

The Crew Has Giant Cities, Deserts, Shinies

By Jim Rossignol on September 13th, 2013.


Ubisoft’s upcoming open-world racing game The Crew might not let me do a Fuel, but it nevertheless sings to the road-hungry part of my soul. But why? But because it looks slick as all hell. Evidence: Newshounds VG247 caught up with the downed pheasant of pre-release hype at Gamescom last month, and produced a video, which you can watch below.

Skid Remarks: The Crew Trailer Is Pretty Neat

By Craig Pearson on August 21st, 2013.

Vroooooooooooooooooooooooom!
I spent a couple of hours playing FUEL with a friend last week. We hopped online, spawned some quad-bikes, and just drove across whatever part of America we were supposed to be in. It had nice trees. So I’m really interested in The Crew, Ubisoft’s open-world driving game set in a Frankenstein’s monster of America, particularly the ‘social driving’ features. I know ‘social’ isn’t a cool buzzword, but if all it means is I can see what a friend’s doing on a map of America and plonk my car down next to theirs, then I’m perfectly happy to do so. I hope it means I can plonk my car down in front, though. Mwahahaha. Mwahahahahaaa! MWHAHAHAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Hah!

An encouraging video of The Crew has just skidded into first place in my heart, and it is below.

Ubisoft’s The Crew: Ultimate Road Trip Game?

By Alec Meer on June 11th, 2013.

Oh dear, did someone forget to put all their product managers in the same room at any point? Ubisoft have managed to announce both The Crew and The Division on the same day – confusionpocalypse is surely inevitable. Presumably The Local Ombudsman Committee is being saved for tomorrow.

If it helps you to keep track of which one’s which, The Division is prefixed with ‘Tom Clancy’s’ and is an RPGy thingy about shooting people, while The Crew has no prefix and is about driving across America. And sounds absolutely brilliant in concept. ROAD TRIP!
