    Ubisoft's New Open World Racer "The Crew" Details Leaked

    Ubisoft's PS4 Racer 'The Crew' Details Leaked

    Adam Barnes

    Ubisoft Reflections' next game has had a bunch of details leaked ahead of a probably E3 2013 reveal.

    Published on Jun 3, 2013
    Ubisoft Reflections has been in the news recently after information on a new racing game called The Crew came to light, suggesting the game could be due for a reveal at E3 2013.
    Now more details on the game have been revealed from a playtester who has released his impressions of the game.

    • The Crew is expected to play similar to Ubisoft Reflections most recent racer Driver: San Francisco, with a semi-arcade style of racing.
    • As with Driver: San Francisco, The Crew will be open world with the ability to travel between New York City and Los Angeles, though the scale of these cities has been reduced.
    • It is not clear whether you will travel through wilderness to reach each city or whether the game will simply load in each area.
    • The Crew will also feature a similar 'Google Maps' style mechanic, presumably for navigating the open world.
    • A 'Freeride' mode will be available too, which the option to choose between missions or challenges.
    • Multiplayer will feature 8 players in either competitive or co-operative gameplay, though no more specific details were provided.
    • As is the case with Ubisoft's Watch Dogs - and presumably many of the publisher's next-gen games - The Crew will come with a companion app for mobile devices.
    • It is presumed that The Crew's release date will be before the end of 2013, presumably to tie into a next-gen release. With such a close release date, it's safe to assume The Crew will be announced at E3 2013.

    According to the source of these details, The Crew was played on the Xbox 360 version of the game.
    A recent tweet from the GamesLab Ubisoft Twitter account confirms that a playtest for a game did occur between 29 May and 31 May, and that Ubisoft were explicitly looking for both arcade and simulation racing game fans to take part.

    We reported on Ivory Tower's work on a rumoured PS4 (and presumably Xbox One) nex-gen racer previously, and now it seems The Crew is that project.

    Sounds promising. Hope this shows up at e3.

    If you can give me arcade style then I'm happy. I can't stand these racing games that are like simulations. It doesn't have to be like Burnout or Flatout but don't disappoint me Ubi!

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    Now that e3 has come and gone what do you guys think of this one? Looked pretty good to me, I like the persistent world thing and the huge maps. Looks to have plenty of tuning and customization options too. And it sure looked purdy.

    Only thing that caught my eye was the huge map based off the US. Other than that nothing that made me want it. I didn't think it looked all that good graphically. Looked like current gen to me. Could have been the stream quality though. But even with the stream quality The Division blew me away. So I don't think it could have been phenomenally better looking than what I saw.

    I liked the concept, but the gameplay demo seems a bit lacking for me.
    I am the oncoming storm.

    Fair enugh you two. I'm intrigued by what I've seen before but I agree in a sense...I haven't seen enough. So far I'd say I'm heavily leaning toward it based on what I posted above but I do want to see more gameplay aside from the demo we've already seen.

    In addition to the huge maps, the open and persistent world and the tuning are the things that have me most pumped for this. Still want to see more gameplay, but my ears are definitely perked.

    If the maps are as big as they're toting, I might give it a look. It seems they may add some social features. But I don't think It'll be better than Driveclub or NFS Rivals.

    Another racer for the PS4? Wow, looks like racing fans will be happy.

    The Crew sounds cool.

    Yeah! I'll likely get 3 of them (Crew, NFS and Driveclub). It's a good time to be a driving game fan for sure

    Hope someone adds a decent rally game to this list of racing titles.
    The WRC games suck and the rally aspect of GT5 wasn't exactly what I was hoping for either.
    DiRT was pretty decent but taken a different approach with the hooligan stuff so fingers crossed for a good anti-lag slag pure rally game.

    Obviously PS5 will just be real life. This is absurdly realistic. Even if not in game, this next gen business is blowing my mind.

    It's ridiculous, looking great. Quite a few of the games announced so far look amazing.

    I can see it on PS5 now...the cars will come crashing through your TV and kill you if you don't dodge off your couch fast enough. Shooter games won't last long as one by one all PS5 players are gunned down in their living rooms. For the PS5, might be time to switch to Celebrity Chef games or My Little Brony so you don't get taken out!
