  1. The Crew 2 Release Date & Pre-order Bonus Revealed A new trailer for the The Crew 2 has been pushed out by Ubisoft during Gamescom and with it we get a confirmed release date for the even bolder open-world sequel, March 16, 2018. (three days earlier for those who opt for the Gold Edition) Doing the maths, that is a fair bit of time away but thankfully, to make the wait easier, there will be a beta for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Still no word or even a cryptic inkling of when this will be, but it is coming and if you haven’t signed up for it yet, then do so now! This sequel to the last game is aiming to go bigger and better than it’s predecessor and surprised many with it’s much improved visuals and total sandbox approach to gameplay on its official revealing back at this year's E3. Switching seamlessly between land, sea and air vehicles of numerous types and categories at any time was certainly unexpected. A great example of this in action is in this video by Gamespot: The game is getting plenty of playtime at Gamescom and a look around the gaming press and on YouTube will result in plenty for eyes to feast upon. The Crew 2: Pre-order Bonus For those who are already sold on the game and ready to get a pre-order in, a bonus by way of the ‘Legendary Motors Pack’ will be your reward: a two-vehicle offering that includes a Mercedes-AMG C63 Touring Car 2016 and a Harley Davidson Iron 883TM 2017.

  2. Need for Speed Payback – Cops Trailer For a long time the police pursuits have been a much-loved part of the Need for Speed series of games and a big reason for this was because of the challenge they posed to the player. Unfortunately over its history, a number of the games seemed to forget this, even to the point of not having any at all, whereas in others they felt more like scenery than an actual obstacle you had to deal with. If we ignore the classic 90s-era games there was one of this century that did them really well and that was the original Most Wanted. These officers were hell-bent on taking you down, and as you avoided their traps – pissing them off more and more – they increased in wanting to get a hard take down upon you. This usually came about by way of a lunatic in a heavy SUV called the ‘Rhino’, which would speed towards you head-on, looking to damage and stall you long enough in order for an arrest to be made. With Need for Speed Payback, the cops are back to their good (bad?) old ways. That will annoy some but honestly, running away easily is no fun, and if you’re honest with yourself, you will admit that it’s the thrill of the chase that really makes these games. (or maybe you’re just all about that customisation) The action-packed trailer starts in reverse, well the BMW M5 is in reverse, then it jumps to 90 seconds earlier to show the end of a street race that has just taken place. With the tire smoke just having cleared after a nicely executed handbrake over the finish line, a swarm of police cruisers race towards our protagonist and a couple of his tricked-out opponents, while a British voice ever so eloquently squawks, “Crap! Cops!”. Now the chase is on and within the cops’ arsenal are road blocks, spike strips, gentle(!) sideswipes, EMPs, and last but not least, the Rhino – this inducing fear into street racers monster has been working out, as it is now beefed up in size, resembling something more of a SWAT truck than the heavy SUV from before. If this thing connects with something, it is going to leave a mark! A posting on the official Need for Speed blog reveals some more information about the tactics they will employ and shares more information about the hero car of the new BMW M5 seen toying with the cops through some exquisite driving. Need for Speed Payback – Fairhaven Police Department Crown Victoria – The standard and most commonly seen cop car across Fortune Valley. Can execute a variety of different manoeuvres and will likely be the first on the scene of any pursuit. Dodge Charger SRT8 – Similar to the Crown Victoria but has a higher top speed and has much more muscle, proving it to be a worthy adversary. Corvette GS – The fastest cop car currently residing in Fortune Valley and provides the police department with something that can keep up with the most powerful of super cars. Rhino – What the Rhino lacks in speed it makes up for in brute strength and there’s nothing quite as frightening as an approaching Rhino, lining up a shunt. The weight that it carries will also make it considerably tougher to get away from during a pinned-in situation, making the Rhino a massive threat all round. Helicopter – The eye in the sky provides an extra level of drama in the highest intensity cop chases. This change of vehicle type does raise one obvious question: how in the hell is it going to keep up with the vehicles in the game without looking stupid? From what is said above about it, chances are it's going to be a real menace from the front, rather than a worry from behind.
  3. The Crew vs The Precinct Now this was unexpected. A cops and runners type expansion is coming to The Crew this November called ‘Calling All Units’. Being that the title has a vast open world environment to play in, it makes sense for this to happen, but there was no indication that it would, and the ability to play as the Police has been an often asked request on the official forums and elsewhere. So it does appear that the devs are listening. Announced with a trailer where someone called Zoe informs your character Alex of what is going on, so there will be some sort of story to give a direction to proceedings we guess, interspersed with views of a pursuit version of the Koenigsegg Agera R and accompanied by a release of the details with a mention of more info to come in the months ahead, the new expansion aims to pit players against one another where the aim of one side is to literally pit the other. To do so, a new arsenal of police vehicles and abilities will be at your disposal. Need to hunt someone in the busy streets of San Francisco? Step behind the wheel of the new Lamborghini Aventador and don’t forget to use your EMP shocks or to call for a helicopter support! This won’t only be a re-skinning of current vehicles either, as the pack will contain a selection of brand new vehicles that both wannabe officers and unscrupulous sorts can use. From the trailer we know the Agera R is going to be one of those to get its police colours and other screens show the F150 Raptor and Hummer H1 kitted out too as well an F12berlinetta avoiding a road block, but there was also a banner update on the game’s Facebook where an Aventador and two newcomers of the KTM 1190 RC8 R, which is making a run for it, and the Mercedes-Benz GLC that is leading the chase. A Jeep Wrangler is also mentioned in the source of this info so that is 4 new vehicles we know of for sure. It’s an interesting mode that will hopefully bring back and continue to keep players within the game and introduce an entirely new way to play the game. We are eager to see what new vehicles will come with this pack too as new toys to play with is always welcome and the fact they may also see police variants is even better. No price has been mentioned, but if ‘The Wild Run’ is anything to go by, it won’t be that cheap. And with the current crop of titles available and those upcoming it will need to make sure it provides plenty of value for the price it asks. [gallery type=rectangular" link="file" size="small-post-image" ids="5772,5773,5774,5775] The Crew ‘Calling All Units’ expansion is set for a November 29th release date and will be available for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
