The Crew: Q&A November 2013

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


Here is our latest developer Q&A, bringing you the latest info on The Crew straight from the dev team. Before getting into the answers, keep in mind that the game is still in progress and changes may happen. We unfortunately can’t answer every single question, but we made sure to address as much as we could.

The questions are organized per section to help you navigate everything.

Thank you again for your support and enthusiasm!


The Crew Team

Part one


· Q: Will you be able to construct “Fantasy Cars“? For instance, tune a car like a VW Golf and turn it into an inconspicuous racing machine that can keep up with any super car?

A: While progressing through the game, you will unlock different kits and parts that will enhance the performances of your car, allowing all of the players to compete at the same level with different models of cars. So yes, you will be able to keep up with anyone.


· Q: Will there be Trucks to drive in the game?

A: That’s not planned for now.


· Q: Can we expect the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera to be included in the game?

A: We will be unveiling more vehicles later on, but rest assured that you’ll see some of the most desirable cars anyone can dream of, and Lamborghini is in the line-up.


· Q: Will there be a limit to the number of cars you can save?

A: Every player will be able to get all the cars that are in the game in his own garage.


· Q: Can we expect a lot of Japanese cars, too? Will we see cars like the Toyota Corolla GT-S, Nissan Silvia S13, S14, S15, or the Toyota Supra

A: The Crew will offer different models of cars that will suit the taste of many, including some Japanese cars. The exact models will be revealed at a later date.


· Q: Can we also expect classic cars like a 1969 Mustang GT?

A: The US is the birthplace of car culture, and it’s a real pleasure for our team to offer classic cars as well. We know that for many fans, there is nothing like driving on the sunny roads of California behind the wheel of a 1967 Shelby!


· Q: I want the Batman's Tumbler in this game. Can you guys do that please?

A: We’ll stick to realistic vehicles for the time being.


· Q: In terms of the classes of car modifications, i.e. Street, and Track; will you only be able to choose one branch to upgrade to, or will it be a case of needing to progress through stages like Street to finally get to Track?

A: You’ll be free to choose how you want to upgrade your cars and unlock the many tuning kits, either by playing the main campaign, focusing on skill challenges, or even through PvP competition. Just play the way you want.




· Q: Will you be able to play the game by yourself or will you be even forced to do some things alone?

A: The game is designed to take advantage of next-gen consoles online capabilities, making the game more enjoyable with friends. However, you will always have the freedom to choose to play alone or in a group; it’s up to you to decide how you want to enjoy your experience.


· Q: Will you be able to use the fast travel function right from the beginning or do you have to unlock all the locations first?

A: The fast travel feature will take you to locations that you had already visited, and it will be available in the first stages of the game.


· Q: Will you be able to perform stunts like barrel rolls during a jump, or will the game auto-correct your flight like in Test Drive Unlimited 2? I’m really looking forward to do some stunts.

A: We want to keep the driving realistic. You will not be able to perform barrel rolls, but there will be some skill challenges that will require you to perform jumps, for example.


· Q: Will there be free roaming? If so, will you also be able to participate in car chases?

A: Free roaming is an important aspect of the game, as our team created a huge and diverse world for you and your crew to visit freely at any time. As in the real world, the police will be randomly patrolling and chasing aggressive drivers. If you want to escape you’ll need to take them down, or escape their pursuit. Going off-road is also a solution.


· Q: Will it be possible to drift in The Crew?

A: Yes you will be able to drift and that will actually be an important mechanic in some aspects of the game.


· Q: Will this game be competitive in any way? For example, will it include ladders or leaderboards?

A: There will be leaderboards to check how your friends are doing. Additionally, PvP will be one of the main aspects of the game, allowing you and your crew to battle other players.


· Q: After creating a crew, is it possible to challenge other live crews?

A: It will be possible for you to challenge other crews and other players in many ways. Our goal is to make this game as complete and enjoyable as possible, so gamers will want to cruise its roads with us for a long time.


· Q: What happens when a car is totally damaged?

A: The Crew will include a full damage system that you can track via a gauge. It will diminish each time the player hits something, and the amount of damage received depending on how big the crash is. The bar will then replenish by itself until a certain point, that point being reached faster and faster as time goes by. After some time, the car will have to be repaired. Handling will be affected by damage but only when it becomes pretty significant. When you take damage, the car will get scratched or dented, the bumper can fall down or hang off, and if your vehicle is in really bad shape, some scraping sounds or squeaky noises will be heard as you drive around or brake.


· Q: What type of game modes are you guys adding besides the ones we already know? Example being a drifting race, checkpoint.

A: They will be varied and interesting enough to make sure you want to stick around for quite some time!


· Q: Are we going to be able to use manual transmission when using keyboard or joypad?

A: Many of you have been requesting it, so our team will be adding it!


· Q: Will there be random missions in the game?

A: Right now the missions are linked to your progression as for the skills; you will have to discover them while exploring the United States. After launch, we will continue to introduce new content to make The Crew a truly living world.


· Q: Will we have the option to flash our headlights?

A: Yes, that will be possible.


· Q: Regarding gameplay; will you be able to assign custom controls in the game?

A: That’s not planned for now.
