Ubisoft’s The Crew was showcased on the show floor at the Russian trade show Igromir, here are two gameplay videos giving a rather extensive glimpse on the game.
Whoever in the latest preview of this game said that it looked last generation and wasn't fun had to be brain-dead. This game looks incredible. Looks like a mix between some of the coolest arcade racing games, Burnout and the 80s arcade classic Chase HQ. this is one of my most anticipated games for next year. I cannot wait to play it. I just hope that we can choose modes to play, say, you are in the mood to play the Chase HQ ramming missions one after another, can we do that? Anyways, the visuals look incredible for being an open world title that spans the United States. The fact that we can drive from one end to another without a loading screen is amazing. The particle effects, reflections and even the vehicles look really nice for being such a huge title. If anybody out there wants to drive from San Francisco to New York City, the day the game comes out, let me know. I think it would be a blast to get 4 or 6 people together to just do a coast-to-coast Drive, without completing any missions, just kind of a sightseeing tour. Does anybody know when this game is coming out? I know it's coming out in 2014, but is it coming out in January or February or Christmas next year?
Looks amazing. Hard to judge the graphics due to off-screen but the gameplay looks solid and that's where the money's at. Day one!
I'll probably grab this too, barring bad reviews. The open world concept sounds awesome. Drive around, find racers, chase them down, challenge them to a race, set a checkpoint and JET!
Reminds me a lot (in concept) of Burnout Paradise — one of my favorite games.
I was kinda thinking midnight club... but next gen burnout is going to be insane.
This city has no people in it. A city got to have people. Trust I live in New York there are people out at all hours of the day and night
Depends on the game mode. This video is showcasing a traditional race/track (eg. lights directing the racers). In the more open world events (as seen in other videos) there are people roaming the streets.
My only issue with this game is sadly a deal breaker for me, and that is the physics/center of gravity. The game makes sure you stay upright while in the air even if it means breaking immersion and looking downright silly, i'm really sick of every driving game these days having that handholding physics BS, seems like the only people who do driving physics right these days is Bugbear. my interest in this game has now been utterly lost, too bad, it had potential
