Skid Remarks: The Crew Trailer Is Pretty Neat


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.

The other stuff about tinkering with car innards and unlocking perks doesn't interest me, really. I'm unlikely to have the attachment to the vehicle that they want me to have, unless I can have a motorbike or quad, but that doesn't appear to be the case. I'll pluck a pre-built car and fiddle a bit, but I really just want to drive and see the world, and occasionally drop into races with friends. That seems perfectly plausible.

I'm encouraged to see the off-road race in there. There's nothing worse when a game creates an open-world and forgets how to use it. The Crew's going to be out early 2014, which appears to be the release date of all things ever.
