The Crew's massive open world takes "an hour and a half" to cross, "four hours" to circumnavigate

Dealspwn reports: "Audacious next-gen racer The Crew may have been delayed, but it promises to be utterly, stonkingly huge. Ubisoft Project Manager Charles-Arthur Bourget gave us a taste of exactly what its 5000km² playground had to offer if you were to try to cross it in real time." (PC, PS4, The Crew, Xbox One)

I'm going to bomb down the highway ad-infinitum.

Heh, you might have to take a week off! Apparently The Crew is all about exploring off the beaten track too though.

I wonder if The Crew has some nice themed Mom and Pop Restaurants to eat at in this HUGE GAME.

Most likely it's just McDonalds every 5 miles and a repetitive barrage of the same 3 Tree and Bush set-ups.

having a HUGE GAME is good but actually filling in that space with a mix of stuff to actually do and see is better.

I was hoping that the GTA V map was that big but looking at the videos of The Crew a lot of it looks similar to test drive unlimited

It would of been awesome if GTA V had been that big.
Blues Cowboy  +   303d ago
Would it have been too big though? More is better, sometimes, but GTA is really dense too - lots going on. A bigger map might have watered it down.

The Crew is designed for only vehicles, so it stands to reason that it's bigger. The micro scale is definitely going to be less fleshed-out than a sandbox game AFAIK.

remember BAJA? huge but ultimately empty!

@ Blues Cowboy : Not at all. Knowing rockstar they would always give us a world thats not too empty and give us plenty to do in a massive map. Also if it had two or three big cities it wouldnt be too bad and Immagine how many more missions we would have got. Instead of 40 hours of missions we would have 100+ hours of missions. I think the bigger the map the better. I really dont think the GTA V map is big enough.

@ badz149 : Have you ever watched real BAJA. Most of their races are in big open lifeless plaines. Also I cant remember a game I never played

@steve30x

yeah, the real BAJA is exactly THAT and making a game of exactly THAT is not really a good move IMO. realism is 1 thing but bringing the boredom of the sports together into the game itself? NO, just NO!

no one cares anymore its not comming out anytime soon f*ck UBISOFT

Better a delay than a disappointment, surely? More to the point, The Crew didn't have a firm release date beyond 'basically the first half of 2014 at some point, I guess.'

I can't wait to play this game and i don't mind the delay, if it'll give more time to the developers to make the game even better then i'm all for it.....NFS Rivals will give me my racing fix until then. :)
