Games I'm Playing



  1. The Crew 2 Has Been Delayed The developers of The Crew 2 have announced that the game is being delayed from its original March 2018 release to some time between April and September. In a post made on the game’s official site the dev team say that the extra time will allow them “to deliver an experience that fulfils both our fans’ and our own quality expectations”. And it sounds like the elusive beta will get more show time too: In this light, we will also use the extra time to continue running test phases and allow as many of you as possible to get hands-on with the game. Player feedback and its integration remain integral to attaining our vision, and the development team is excited by the prospect of working further with our amazing community. As big fans of the open-world racing game we really hope that this will be made good on, resulting in The Crew 2 being a game that not only improves massively on the previous, but also becomes a diamond of the racing game genre. [via The Crew 2]
  2. 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.

  3. [HEADLINE]The Crew 2 Reveal Trailer[/HEADLINE] The Ubisoft E3 conference is taking place right now and for those who were lucky enough to catch the leaked trailer and saw what it showed, the rest of us have only just now caught up and damn was it pretty exceptional! There's a Beta coming too! The Crew 2 Beta The Gameplay Preview has also been posted.
  4. The Crew 2 Beta / Rewards Program Registrations are now open for the newly-announced The Crew 2. No information about when this will take place is known but with the game not set to release until early next year it’s likely to be at least a month or few away. Getting in early shouldn’t hurt though, so jump on over to the sign-up page and get your order in! To help players deal with the waiting, Ubisoft have launched ‘The Crew Rewards Program’, where through the completion of challenges and objectives in The Crew players can unlock up to 18 cars for the new one. Beginning with the Ferrari 458 Speciale being the easiest to achieve, as it only needs players to have launched the full game (trial doesn’t count) at least once before the release date to have it waiting for them in their garage. With 18 vehicles up for grabs and a good amount of time before the game itself releases, the journey through the program won’t be something that can be completed immediately. Two awards per month will be unveiled until the end of the year. Each needing the player to perform a specific action in the The Crew where they will then be rewarded with the associated vehicle in the next game. And with varying difficulty levels these actions do not sound as if they will always be super easy and will sometimes require some effort on the player’s part. Players can find out what is being asked of them right now as the first three awards are already underway! A total of fifteen awards are able to be obtained and those who accomplish five, ten or all fifteen of them will receive exclusive bonus vehicles that are exclusive to The Crew 2. More about those will be forthcoming in the future. Progress can be monitored from directly in game or, on a dedicated page that is updated twice monthly. There is also an FAQ that is assigned to a support page for those who may still have questions about this or wish to be more fully informed. [via The Crew]
  5. The Crew 2 - E3 Reveal & Gameplay Umm, we knew this was coming. They let us know beforehand and gave us some cryptic sentences about how it was going to go ‘Beyond the Road’ and that the ‘journey has just begun’, but no one expected The Crew 2 to be this. This development team is ambitious, we know that is for sure, but holy cheese and crackers they have gone insane, and are quite literally looking to turn your typical racing game on its head. For starters the game is still about racing, but not only on the road or the grassy, gravel or snowy terrain. No, now players will be able to race on the water and in the air. You heard me. There are boats and planes, and as is becoming an all too familiar scenario, Porsche is in too. It’s a big step up in many ways from the first game’s initial outing and what is being seen already is looking incredibly promising. Due out in “Early 2018”, it is good to know that there is still a fair amount of time for the team to work on the game and get it looking superb. The large map of the USA remains for the next game but it has seen some serious work done to it. New water and air based functionality has required some technological wizardry to keep the seamless nature of the game, and this can be seen in great effect through the instant switching between the different racing types. Perhaps what will cause a divide between people more than anything is the Inception like movement of the world around the player as new sequences take place. Watching the world literally raise and lower around you is bound to raise some eyebrows. Opinions have been all over the place in response to the announcement trailer, and so it was great to see this additional gameplay trailer being posted as it showcases the new direction this is heading in a way that couldn’t be shown, and has very much turned opinions more towards those of a positive. The Crew 2 - Images [gallery type=rectangular" link="file" size="seven-post-image" ids="7039,7041,7040,7044,7042,7043]
  6. The Crew 2 Is Real Our suspicions about a possible The Crew 2 being in the very near future were right, as it has been confirmed that a sequel to the gigantic open-world racer is on the way. First noticed through a tweet posted by the gamesindustry.biz Senior Editor, which in itself brought about a small period of thinking and confusion as to whether it was to do with something for the current game or a new one entirely, we only had to wait a matter of minutes before the game's official twitter awoke to share a link to the official Ubisoft forums with an accompanying The Crew 2 logo (see main image), and the text “Beyond the road”. Knowing that Ubisoft have confidence in the series and developer Ivory Tower to push ahead with a sequel, is great to see. And hopefully the next game will expand on what the original did, improve on the aspects that players have fed back to the team, and will blow us away yet again with a vast environment where total freedom is paramount. This reveal about a new game in the series naturally has us raising some questions: Where will it be set? Will it have Porsche? What on earth does "beyond the road" mean? These answers and more will become clear at E3 no doubt, as this is where Ubisoft have become masters at revealing more about the games we know about... and then blowing us away with those we don't. As long as we don't end up with a repeat of another '2' from before, good times should be ahead! [via @TheCrewGame]
  7. [uPDATE #1: 2nd June 2013] The Crew, le jeu de course Ubisoft : nos infos - Gameblog.fr Translation by Speeder Google Translation Just saw this too: Recent tweet on the @GamesLabUbi account looking for playtesters of sim/arcade variety. GamesLab Ubisoft ‏@GamesLabUbi 27 May Cherchons joueurs jeux voiture simu et/ou arcade pour playtest à Montreuil du 29 au 31 Mai de 10h à 17h. Infos http://on.fb.me/PYaInj [media=twitter]338966622184284160[/media] ORIGINAL POST Well we knew that Ivory Tower (Ivory) was making a game for Ubisoft and that there had been hints of Ubisoft Reflections also being involved so this rumour of a realistic racer akin to Forza Motorsport and Gran Turismo is interesting. What do you think? Is this the Ivory game or is it possible they are working on an open-world realistic racer? Just think how many people have asked for this! Rumor: Ubisoft revealing new racing IP called at E3 2013 - Long Island Video Game Industry | Examiner.com I may have posted this publicly before but not sure, I know they're in the Green Room.
  8. The Crew Passes 12 Million Players Over 12 million players have test driven open world racer The Crew, Ubisoft have revealed. More than two years after its release, players are still jumping on and exploring the vast replica of the USA that is the game’s world. Needless to say, the team are delighted at this achievement, and keeping in line with this ‘12’ milestone, the official Ubisoft blog roped in 12 members from developer Ivory Tower, to say a little something. We’ve only chosen a few but you can view all at the source link below. Every time I realise how strong and growing our community is, I can’t help but get emotional. Releasing The Crew was a childhood dream come true: building a whole universe dedicated to exploration, competition, adventure, and creating glorious moments with friends or solo, behind the wheel of our favourite rides. I’ve never thought this vision would strike a chord with so many and I am always thankful to see how more and more players connect to this world, filling it with their own challenges and creations. One of them is a screenshot I’ve been using as a wallpaper on my smartphone for over a year now (see pic). It represents everything I like about The Crew: the call of the road, the fact that the destination doesn’t really matter as long as you’re enjoying the journey. And really, ours has just begun! – Stéphane “Fergus” Beley, Game Director We live in hope that the “ours has just begun”, is a hint to a possible sequel, that could see a reveal at this year’s E3. The Lead Game Designer isn’t afraid to admit that he has been beaten by many a player, but even with that revelation there is no bitterness held, as still they share a nice little tip for how to perform a better drift. From low-key road trips on country roads to exhilarating chases across the most iconic cities, I’ve lived countless adventures at your side these past two years. And even if I’ve designed a lot of challenges and missions in The Crew, I have to admit I’ve been whipped pretty badly by some of you in PVP! I still have a couple of aces up my sleeve, though, and today I’ll give away one of them: when you want to drift, just hold A & B at the same time – That’s called power drifting, and that’s my gift to all those who keep challenging us, helping us deliver the best experience possible, and giving us the ambition to always go one step further than expected. After all, this is your game too! – Paul Narducci, Lead Game Designer Depending on how you prefer your handling in a game like this – you will either love, or not have fond feelings for this next one: A few days ago, I went to a huge event and found myself in the middle of a crowd of 400,000 people. Being able to see and be part of the human tide was both impressive and humbling. Then it hit me: there are 30 times as many The Crew players! The rush of emotion I got was overwhelming – thank you all so much! You have no idea how inspiring you are. Fun fact: I used to tweak the vehicles’ handling on what we called “the Branchu Loop”, north-west of Monument Valley. Then I noticed you guys were using Observatory Dash as a training mission, so I’ve taken up using it as a test-drive spot – and still do! – Sylvain Branchu, Vehicle Handling Designer Post-release support has been quite something for this game, with the update to the engine, introducing weather, and of course the photo mode. These were all something the community asked for, and incredibly, they got it! Being big fans of the latter ourselves, it was nice to see that there is passion in the team for it too. Like a lot of our players, I’m a big fan of our Photo Mode. Between my everyday job and a burning passion for nice pictures, I’ve quickly become a real screenshot machine! So here are some tips for the amateur photographers out there: take the fuzziness into account before capturing, it’ll help you get more realistic pics. For tight close-ups, don’t zoom in right away. First, set the focal length to a minimum, then choose your angle, set the focus to your liking, and shoot. Don’t forget to send us the result – here’s one of my personal creations! – Aurèle Gannat, Game Designer This last one, displays the feelings many players have for a game like this, as in how it is all about the freedom given to the player to play the game how they want to. That's what gives this title and those like it, longevity. They are the game that people will jump back on during bouts of playing others, as there is just not really anything else like it that allows the passing of time to be done in such a manner. (except for going for a real drive of course) I was really into the Artic Monkeys’ AM album when I started working on The Crew, and especially the song “Do I Wanna Know”, which is part of the game’s soundtrack. To me, it feels like the spirit of that song has soaked the whole game’s DNA: it’s the perfect road-trip track, the kind you want to turn all the way up while watching the scenery go by, goofing around with friends, or showing off in your favourite ride. It’s really touching to see how players share this kind of connection to the game, giving meaning to even the smallest details. It makes us all part of this big community. – Lucie Dugand, Level Designer Well done to all those behind and involved with the game, it’s been a wild run the last years, and we wouldn’t mind seeing even more of it, in the future! [via UbiBlog]
  9. The Crew 2? A post went up on the official blog of The Crew last month announcing that major updates for the game were coming to an end. The additional police vehicles are still on their way but after that it’s going to be pretty quiet until they have “details to share”. Generally this means work is stopping on the current and they are getting ready to reveal the next one. And from the sentence below found in the post itself, it begs to reason that this is likely what’s happening: “Today we want to inform you that we won’t be releasing any major updates in the coming months, but rest assured that The Crew has only just begun” – The Crew blog The need to be a bit coy and try not to say too much but leaving enough hint in there to raise an eyebrow is personally what I take from that. So let’s say that The Crew 2 is what’s going on here, and that we will see it being revealed like its predecessor at E3. The big question that comes to my mind is where will the new one be set? Could it use the USA again or will they go for somewhere else? Perhaps their native homeland of France would be a good pick. And with the problems plenty of players expressed about the first one, will they take this on board and look to titles such as Forza Horizon 3 for inspiration and ideas? All I can say is, I hope so. As even though it was a new IP from a brand new studio, Ivory Tower's The Crew was hugely ambitious, and despite the lukewarm start it did keep on improving, receiving two chunky expansions and several patches and features, including a photo mode. There is a good chance this has nothing at all to do with a new The Crew, but I really hope it is. As I want to see what this team can do and how they can put into practice the lessons they have learned from watching players and paying attention to their feedback. If it’s about a third expansion then that would be a real surprise, then again you can never really predict what this studio is doing as let’s face it, not many saw the graphical overhaul and weather update coming, no matter how many people actually wanted it. [via The Crew blog]
  10. The Crew: Hot Pursuit The race and the chase is on as The Crew ‘Calling All Units’ expansion is now available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Originally scheduled for a mid-morning GMT release, there appeared to be some technical issues that have since been resolved. The new content, if you haven’t been following the info drops and media that has recently come out, puts players behind the wheel as the Police in a new storyline featuring 12 missions, and introduces us to a new character, Clara Washington. In this new scenario you are Washington and will be helping in her quest to bring down a rising gang of street racers called the Harvesters. The prologue of the new story can be played by everyone, giving a taste of what the new expansion offers through two missions where you will first pick-up a crate and run with it to a destination, then switch roles to a cop where you will then pursue who you were just prior. After that though, the expansion will need to be purchased in order to gain the free Police Mercedes and to continue on with the story. Understandably however it is not the single player that is the main draw of this for many players. Nope, it is the ability to have a good old chase online with real people and CAU does this quite well. Start off by doing the run alone and then embrace the chaos as all of a sudden you are being helped by and chased by a group of players who are working together to achieve their goal. Finding others is easy as notifications will show inviting you to take part in a challenge that is already underway. Many different vehicles are available for the police in varying Specs for all kind of terrain. Street, Performance and Circuit are ideal for when on the roads and Raid and even Monster Truck is there for when things get a bit more bumpy off the beaten track. Taking down players as a cop is done by having the suspect’s vehicle within a 30 meter range for a period of 7 seconds. There’s no boxing in or having to ram against a barrier and hold them there required here. It’s not as simple as it sounds though as each side has abilities they can use to hinder and help them in their task. Police have access to the following: Speed Hack – This ability breaks the acceleration of any Street Racer in a range of 150 meters. EMP Field - The EMP Field can deactivate the brakes of any Street Racer in a range of 150 meters. Jammer – When used, this ability deactivates all UI items (BreadCrumb, Radar, crew widget, 3D tags etc …) of the target in range. EMP Shock – the EMP Shock makes every opponent in range lose control of their vehicle. Back on target – if the players are too far away from their target, they have the possibility to use the back on target ability to reduce the distance. Whereas Street Racers get to use these: Flashbang – this ability blinds the cop players and AI in range, and removes their UI elements for few seconds. Unlimitro – gives unlimited nitro to the caster and his support players in range. Guardian – This ability is a protective one, once launched, it will cleanse all the abilities sent by Cops for few seconds. EMP Shock – the EMP Shock applies a single shock to the target and makes the opponent’s car lose control and grip for a few seconds. Back on target for support players – if a support Street Racer (i.e, non-crate holder) is too far away from the crate holder, he has the possibility to use the back on target ability to reduce the distance. Each player gets to choose 2 of the above options from the menu before the chase and can also change them at anytime during too. Doing so means taking your eye off the prize and could result in doing you more harm than good unless you are quick! Plenty of new vehicles come as part of CAU too and there are all types here. Comprising of eleven that are brand new to the game including the extremely popular Nissan GT-R (R35) available in both normal and police versions. The full list of what is included in the original CAU release is shown below. We’ve highlighted the completely new with Nissan GT-R (FS / Perf / Police Perf) Jeep Wrangler (Full Stock / Street / Dirt / Raid / Police Dirt) Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupé (Police Street) Lamborghini Aventador (Police Perf) Ford F-150 (Police Raid) Lamborghini Gallardo (Police Circuit) Abarth 500 (Police Monster Truck) BMW S1000R (Police Perf) Koenigsegg Agera R (Police Perf) Hummer H1 (Police Raid) Pagani Huayra (Police Perf) Ferrari F12 Berlinetta (Full Stock / Perf) Kawasaki GPZ 900R Ninja 1984 (FS / Street / Perf / Circuit) Kawasaki KX450F (Full Stock / Street / Dirt / Raid) Indian Chief Dark Horse (Full Stock / Street / Perf) Ducati Hypermotard (Full Stock / Street / Dirt) KTM 1190 RC8 R (Full Stock / Perf) + RC8 R Track (Circuit) Mercedes AMG GT (Full Stock + Perf) + GT3 (Circuit) Maserati MC12 (Full Stock + Perf) + MC12 Corsa (Circuit) As you play through the many other events and missions of CAU you will find AI opponents named after many popular and dedicated people from the community of the game. Thanks to the incredible generosity of Ivory Tower and co. you can find YouTuber spoon Blackpanthaa in there, along with The Crew reddit head honcho Elongo06 as well as some muppet called Tee Duck. I’m sure they, just like us, have said a massive WAHEY! THANKS GUYS AND GIRLS!! to those who made it possible for us fools to get ourselves involved. The Crew ‘Calling All Units’ is out now for PC, PS4 and Xbox One for $24.99/£19.99/€24.99. It can also be bought with the new The Crew Ultimate Edition that is out as of today. With it, there also comes updates to the handling for multiple cars, and all bikes have received a better turning rate and improved suspension settings. Bug squashing has been done too, with fixes for the behaviour of AI, audio and more. For the full range of all of this check out the source below. [via The Crew blog]
  11. ’Calling All Units’ Key Giveaway Players of The Crew can get themselves in with a chance of winning a ‘Calling All Units’ expansion key with the latest Community Challenge to go live in the game. Open to all players and platforms from November 16th - 22nd, the Los Angeles based ‘Fake Out’ challenge will pit them against a prison bus that is accompanied with a heavy police escort. At the end of the challenge the top 20 players on each platform of PS4, Xbox One and PC will be sent a key. It is also important to note that in order to take part game accounts must be linked to Uplay, as this is how the lucky winners will be contacted. It's unclear if the key will activate before the official release of the 29th or if those who win will need to hold off until then before activating, but seeing as it is only a week either way, it really isn't that much of an issue to be fair. The Crew 'Calling All Units' expansion is out November 29th on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. [via The Crew blog]
  12. Power Up Ready! The ‘Calling All Units’ expansion for The Crew which puts cops against street racers is less than three weeks away from release and it is time to learn about the abilities that both cops and racers will have to themselves as well as those they will share the use of. Starting with the tricks that the Street Racers will be able to pull to evade capture there is “Flash Bang”, this will temporarily blind and disorientate opponents and is likely to cause some havoc if used at the right moment. “Unlimited Nitro” should need no explanation whereas “Guardian” will remove any negative effects on you or nearby allies, while also providing a short period of protection. Police have “Jammer” which will remove the UI of the Street Racer making for map knowledge a much needed skill especially when racing around the urban environments. Not sure if that is the only police specific ability but it is the only one mentioned in the source. Both factions can use “EMP Shock”, this common power-up messes up the direction and steering of the one hit with it and will be most useful when employed in a way that will make the victim crash or fly off a cliff. Only 2 abilities can be equipped at a time so there will be some strategy involved in picking what will work best for the situation ahead. Joining up with others will make this easier and is something that is definitely encouraged. Making for what should be a number of fun and frantic occurrences. The Crew ‘Calling All Units’ is out November 29th on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. [via The Crew blog]
  13. The Crew Celebrates Turning 2! The Crew is coming up for its second anniversary in December and those behind the game want to reward those who have been there since the beginning of that journey with a free Lamborghini and an exclusive sticker! If you were playing the game back in December 2014 or joined the party in January 2015 then an in-game Lamborghini Huracán will be yours for free, along with a stylish 2-year anniversary sticker! The Crew’s second anniversary is coming up in December this year! As we prepare to celebrate this important milestone, we can’t help but think about everything that has been accomplished since we first revealed the game, and how much we’re grateful for our incredible community. - The Crew official site The reward will be pushed out to all who are eligible with the launch of the ‘Calling All Units’ expansion on November 29th. All that’s needed to gain it for those who fall within the above criteria is, to log in once the expansion is live and the Lambo and sticker! will be unlocked on your account. You do NOT need to own any of the expansions in order to be eligible. The Crew ‘Calling All Units’ expansion is out November 29th for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. [via The Crew] Personally I just want to say it has been quite the experience following the early days of the mentions of Ivory Tower and what they could be working on. I can still remember when Speeder shared that tiny first screen they found digging around the early Ivory Tower website, showing that it was a car game. Then a few months later I came across a couple of renders by an Ivory Tower muppet that again sparked off the imagination engines going off in people. Mixing in some hear-say and reports about the possible name, finally we saw it, The Crew was revealed at E3 2013. So I want to give a massive shout out and big thanks to: Julian Gerighty, Soufyane Brahimi, Anne Blondel-Jouin, “Fergus”, natchai, Ubisoft and the whole Ivory Tower team for all their support and general goodness they’ve shown to us here at turboduck. From sharing general information, answering questions or providing us with beta and game codes to giveaway. The respect we've been shown has been above what we deserve in all honesty and I cannot thank them enough for it, and I absolutely cannot wait to see what else and new is to come from The Crew crew.
  14. The Crew - Police STOP! The latest expansion for The Crew is heading out on duty next month and the details on how the unlocking of police vehicles in the ‘Calling All Units’ (CAU) expansion have been set out. First and foremost is that every player will be able to do the Police prologue, providing they have done at least the original game prologue first. After completion of that the Police shop will unlock in Chicago and this is one non-buyers of the expansion will find their access to what the expansion offers stop. [caption id=attachment_5790" align="alignnone" width="800] Welcome officer. Have a free Mercedes![/caption] Owners of CAU meanwhile will be given their first police vehicle in the way of the brand new to the game Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupé when they access the shop for the first time. Other pursuit models will be available to buy with both Crew Credits and Bucks. If you don’t want to use your hard-earned game currency or real-world spent cash then these vehicles can also be unlocked by completing chases. Street racers need to deliver a crate to a designated location and the police have to catch and arrest the Street Racer trying to make the delivery. A win will give the player the chance to earn a vehicle part as part of their loot; 10 parts is needed to create a Full Stock Street Racer vehicle whereas those playing as Police will need to double that and acquire 20 parts. The chances of looting a vehicle part will vary based on the difficulty of the chase (Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum). If you don’t win a part the first time, you can retry a chase as many times as you like until you do. - The Crew official site Crate chases are launched by the Street Racers, so officer gamer’s chance of grabbing a part depends on the difficulty selected by the runner. Pursuers don’t just jump in blind though, they can see what the difficulty is and therefore can choose to participate or decline the chase if they feel it isn’t of any benefit to them. Unfortunately patrolling the freeroam roads and highways isn’t possible as player-controlled Police will not be able to chase those going about their illegal business. It’s understandably to stop harassment but the fact of the matter is that there are players out there who would want this. So why not make it optional or even better, create a mode or server instance where this could be the case? The Crew ‘Calling All Units’ expansion is due out November 29th for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

  15. Free The Crew PC The Crew is STILL free right now but this is your last chance to get it before the Ubi30 offer finishes!! If you haven’t already nabbed your copy then you really should, even if you have other games at the moment, The Crew is a game that is great for jumping on and passing anything from 15 mins to 15 days (with breaks in-between). A game you can play how you want and tweak how you want and with support continuing even after almost 2 years of release, it is obvious that the game still has something to give. You will either take to it or hate it, but with it being available for nothing right now (except for needing Uplay) it is well worth downloading and seeing how you find it for yourself. There are plenty out there who didn't think it would be for them but, after giving it a whirl, found some enjoyment with it. This is the last day you will be able to download it for zero pennies, so unless your bandwidth is precious or costs a fortune there really is no reason to dive in and see what you think. UPDATE://1 - we asked for the absolute end time for being able to download the game and it turns out it's: Wednesday 12th October at 8:00 am GMT.

  16. The Crew 5-0 510 5-0 We are two months away from The Crew ‘Calling All Units’ releasing and the details about how to go about acquiring it have been revealed. To start off, there will be a full game available just like with ‘Wild Run’ and this will be called The Crew ‘Ultimate Edition’. This will come complete with the ‘Calling All Units’ and ‘Wild Run’ expansions along with the 19 cars from the Season Pass and will be priced at a normal new release price point. For those who did not purchase the ‘Wild Run’ expansion when it released to the end of last year, there is a generous bonus where that expansion will be included as part of the cost of ‘Calling All Units’. Therefore standard game owners will get both expansions for what is basically the price of just the one. (when we say standard we mean those who have not bought 'Wild Run') A good deal! … not if you were one to purchase ‘Wild Run’. That loyalty you see is rewarded by: a discount? an exclusive item just for all of you The Crew devotees? Nope. You get a 2016 Nissan GT-R for free. This vehicle is exclusive to ‘Calling All Units’ but is available to all who play through the expansion, so in effect you get a ‘boost’ for your allegiance. Make no mistake, we are big fans of the game and the team but we will always call out actions as we see them if we feel they are either unfair or a bit stupid. Developers and publishers should be looking to how Evolution Studios conducted their post-launch support with DRIVECLUB and aim to replicate that. A little respect works both ways after all and goes a long way! The Crew 'Calling All Units' is due out on November 29th for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Source: The Crew
  17. The Crew Goes Free Starting yesterday, anyone with a Uplay account could dive on over to the Ubisoft Club website and download the PC version of The Crew for free. Since our post last week about this happening however, it appears a few things have changed or have been clarified. The full game is what is provided and players get to keep it as long as they download before the offer ends on October 11th, 2016. Unfortunately what was interpreted as all the DLC that had been released for the game up to now being included, due to the original video with Community Developer, Soufyane Brahimi specifying that the game would be offered “with all the content we've been adding in the past two years” is now not the case. As this seems to have changed to only be the FREE content, and if this was always the case it would seem kind of redundant to state this. So it is more than likely it was either never intended to be that way or things changed for the actual offer itself, which ends 3 days earlier than originally stipulated too. Though as bothersome as that is, there is still a full game being given away for nothing and the environment size, multitude of activities and time that can be passed just racking up the miles (as long as you develop a feel for the handling that works for you) is certainly worth the zero cost. It costs nothing and it's well worth a try, so be sure to grab your copy before the offer's end date.
  18. Free The Crew Ubisoft have revealed that, as part of their 30th Anniversary celebrations, The Crew will be available to download for FREE from September 14th. The massive and open online racer is the first game from Ivory Tower who is staffed by many of the former team who made the Test Drive Unlimited games as well as those from other great names of racing. Set in a scaled down representation of the United States, the game provides plenty for players to do and see with many challenges to attempt and best as well as side missions to complete. Since release the game has had a number of new vehicles released for it, seen bikes join in the fun and received a huge update that overhauled the visuals and introduced weather. There was also the Wild Run expansion, again delivering a plethora of new vehicles and introducing the 'Summit' competition where players could participate in events and challenges to win even more new machinery. And all of this appears to be included, as stated above by The Crew Community Developer, Soufyane Brahimi. The support doesn’t stop there either, as in November the new ‘Calling All Units’ expansion is due out, bringing with it new vehicles and new play modes where being the cop or running from them is the objective. It's something the community has asked for so it will be interesting to see how well it is handled and if it will turn out to be as good as past games that have done this dynamic well. And once you have the game, it's yours. There is no limited time to enjoy or anything. Now that is pretty damn sweet. To get your copy, head over to ubisoftclub.com/ubi30 (Uplay login) from next Wednesday and be sure to grab it before October 14th!
  19. Summit New for The Crew The Crew is already old, in fact it's near geriatric if we are to go by the typical post release support window of other titles. But Ubisoft and Ivory Tower don't care about age, as they are still feeding it with lots of updates and providing their players with new toys. For starters there will be a new car: the latest Mazda MX-5 will be coming to the game as a Summit reward for July and August and the fun little roadster will be available in Street and Performance specifications too. Some motorcycles are next and these are mentioned with only a 'Future' date of release. The Kawasaki Z1000 ABS and Ducati Paginale R will make their appearance sometime whenever (¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ) and will be available in Performance and Circuit specifications. From looking these up, the Ducati in particular is a stunning looking machine and will hopefully have a sound to match. That seems to be the lot for new toys but that doesn't mean the new stops as the updates will bring their own newness: New Specs Here are some upcoming new specs inbound over the next few months: KTM SuperDuke 1290 - Circuit: August Ruf RT 35 - Raid: Future release Ducati Monster S - Dirt: Future release Ducati Monster S - Circuit: Future release New community Challenges Community Challenge - Fake Out Community Challenge - Chin Music These slightly modified story missions, cut scenes removed to avoid spoilers, will be available with a specific vehicle as part of upcoming community challenges. And as with everything game related today the fixes and improvements make their obligatory entrance: Bug fixes and improvements Fixed a bug that was occurring when installing the game on Windows 8.1 64 Fixed a bug that was occurring when driving with Monster cars in tunnels Several bug fixes and improvements related to Summit events Fixed a bug that was displaying a 3 minute timer at the end of a Freedrive challenge These bug fixes will be applied in our upcoming patch on Tuesday, July 20th (2016 we hope!).

  20. Rip into an RX-7 With the launch of Wild Run barely a month in the past, the team at Ubisoft have a slew of improvements to announce in response to community feedback, slated for release very soon. Be sure to let us (and the developers) know what you think of the latest handling tweaks. VEHICLES AND SPECS A new vehicle can be purchased by all players of The Crew and The Crew Wild Run: the Pagani Zonda in Full Stock and Perf Spec. As many of you have been requesting, the Mazda RX-7 will be coming in Drift Spec for The Crew Wild Run players. Christmas stickers are being added into the game for all players. HANDLING IMPROVEMENT FOR THE VEHICLES: The following vehicles have received a handling tuning that provide: improved aerodynamics, better steering reactivity, improved countersteering, improved grip behavior, and an increase in the differences between Driving Help/Sport/Hardcore modes. BMW Z4 sDrive35is 2011 FULL STOCK/STREET/PERF/CIRCUIT/RAID Dodge Charger R/T Hemi FULL STOCK/STREET/PERF/ CIRCUIT /DIRT 2004 Dodge Ram SRT-10 FULL STOCK/STREET/PERF/ CIRCUIT /DIRT/RAID McLaren 12C FULL STOCK/PERF/ CIRCUIT Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 FULL STOCK/PERF/ CIRCUIT 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 FULL STOCK/PERF 1967 Shelby GT500 FULL STOCK/PERF/CIRCUIT Mini Cooper S 2010 FULL STOCK/STREET/PERF/CIRCUIT/DIRT Saleen S7 FULL STOCK/PERF/CIRCUIT Volkswagen Golf GTI FULL STOCK/STREET 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 FULL STOCK/STREET/PERF/CIRCUIT/DIRT Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG FULL STOCK/PERF/CIRCUIT Chevrolet Silverado FULL STOCK/STREET/PERF/CIRCUIT/DIRT/RAID Hot Rod STREET/PERF/CIRCUIT/DIRT Lamborghini Miura SV FULL STOCK/PERF Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG FULL STOCK/PERF/CIRCUIT Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Uhlenhaut FULL STOCK/PERF/CIRCUIT Aston Martin V12 Zagato FULL STOCK/PERF Bentley Continental Supersports 2010 FULL STOCK/PERF/CIRCUIT TUNING AND CHANGES Free Drive Stunts: The "No Crash" condition will now be triggered after level 10. Key binding – PC players: PC players were unable to rebind all their keys the way they wanted. This has been modified and PC players will be able to rebind their keys as they wish. The Summit music volume is now linked to the FX Volume instead of the Music Volume in the options. GENERAL FIXES Fix in Summit leaderboards: Removed the debug text which could be seen on the leaderboards of the Free Drive challenges, Free Drive Stunts and PvP. Number of required medals to access the monthly Summit: Three medals appeared as needed to access the monthly Summit. Inability to start the European Qualifier with some cars: A few vehicles weren’t matched to their region of origin (European cars), preventing them from being used in the appropriate Summit Qualifier. Kicked to the Main Menu during a Summit event: Players could be kicked to the Main Menu if they were in a middle of a Summit activity when the related Summit was ending. Fixed the improper value of players registered in Free Drive Stunt in the smartphone. Fixed a display issue where the Summit Qualifier appeared to be closed when it was actually active. Fixed an issue where an improper amount of ESK points was granted to a player at the end of a Free Drive Stunt. Fixed a display issue where 255 medals were needed to get access to the monthly Summit if a player never entered the Summit. The “Looking For Crew” queue should now be working properly with the Free Drive Stunts. Fixed a display issue where a part of the overall Summit leaderboard went outside of the screen if a player opened it after completing a Free Drive Challenge while a Summit was active. Fixed a display issue where the Summit reward page displayed a Monster ESK instead of a Drift ESK. Fixed an issue during the Summit cinematic when entering with a Monster Truck. The bonus faction missions available at the end of the month will now be properly activated.
  21. The Crew Photo Mode AND MORE... An image has been posted on the official Facebook for The Crew giving a glimpse at the post-launch content planned for its future. The most exciting of these for ourselves (and many others we hope!) is shown under the 'NEW TOOLS' heading and that is the 'Photo Mode'. Even before the game was released players have been asking for it due to the setting of the game. Now finally they will be able to take those shots and capture those moments that they have been wanting to do so for so long. And it will not only be the static image fans with their Photo Mode who will have their fun as it appears there will be a 'Video Mode' too. With these two new media-capturing tools there is also the mention of: new vehicles, new tuning specs , extra Summit Rewards and Events and Enhanced FreeDrive Challenges and a hint at even more due to the AND MORE... on the bottom right. ;) It's been only about a month since Wild Run became available bringing with it updated visuals and weather effects, and the community and players are still in multiple frames of mind to how they find it, nevertheless it is good to see the intent to support being posted only a short time after. Let's just hope it is s**ner rather than later.
  22. Jump In And Head For The Summit! The Crew's massive Wild Run update is coming to consoles and PC today! The complete Wild Run expansion will feature a whole load of new content, while the free update still includes new cars and all the fixes and changes to the game itself. Below we'll walk you through the new features and changes to the game. The Summit Each month there will be a competition between you and all the other players of The Crew, competing for access to exclusive cars, rewards and bragging rights on the leaderboard. You begin by entering qualifiers, there will be 2 qualifiers each week, you must complete these to gain access to The Summit. Once you're in, you advance by completing in missions, PVP events, freeride challenges, skills, and stunts. The Cars Also coming with the Wild Run expansion are a number of new vehicles and new specs such as Monster Trucks, Dragsters, Drift Cars and my personal favourite, Motorcycles! All of the new vehicles can be used in free roam and specific missions, as well as the new events in The Summit. New specs can also be applied to certain cars that are not new to the game, so you can still turn your favourite 370Z into a drift car. New cars: BMW X6 M RUF RT35 Subaru BRZ Mercedes SLR McLaren 722 Aston Martin Vanquish Lotus Exige S TVR Sagaris Mazda RX-7 Bikes: Kawaski Ninja H2 Ducati Monster 1200S KTM 450 EXC Indian Scout Ducati Diavel BMW S1000RR KTM 1290 Super Duke Gameplay On top of the new content, Ivory Tower have made a number of changes and updates to the gameplay. The Crew has underwent a massive graphics overhaul that includes a whole new dynamic weather system! Depending on where you are in The Crew's world, it could rain, it could snow, the roads could be soaking wet, or the fog could be so thick you can't see the car in front of you. Overall the graphics update completely changes the in-game atmosphere and brings The Crew up to new release standards. An additional 3 gameplay modes have also been added to freeride. Co-op Stunts, quick challenges that can be triggered whenever you're in freeride such as drifting, driving a certain distance, jumps, etc. On completion of a stunt, the player earns bucks and then another more difficult stunt is generated for them. The more stunts completed in a single streak the more bucks you can earn. FreeDrive Challenge, a competitive feature played within a crew. One player can create the challenge, setting waypoints and a finish line. At the end of the race, crew members earn rewards based on the number of players and what position they finished in. A new matchmaking system is also included in the update, LFP (Looking For Players). LFP is an automatic matchmaking process that groups players who want to play a specific game mode. Vehicle Handling Ivory Tower have also updated the handling and physics of cars, so far only certain cars and specs have received the handling update, see the list below. This handling update promises to improve aerodynamics, steering reactivity, counter steering, grip behaviour, tuning, and increase the distinctions between handling modes (all driving help/sport/hardcore). Handling Updates: Chevrolet Camaro RS 1969 PERF Pagani Huayra FULL STOCK/PERF Koenigsegg Agera R FULL STOCK/PERF 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS FULL STOCK/STREET/PERF/CIRCUIT/DIRT/RAID 2013 SRT Viper GTS 2013 FULL STOCK/PERF McLaren F1 FULL STOCK/PERF 2013 Nissan 370Z (Z34) FULL STOCK/STREET/PERF/CIRCUIT/DIRT/RAID Ford F-150 SVT Raptor 2010 FULL STOCK/STREET/PERF/CIRCUIT/DIRT/RAID Ferrari 458 Speciale FULL STOCK/PERF Dodge Challenger SRT-8 FULL STOCK/STREET/PERF/CIRCUIT/DIRT/RAID Buggy A1 RAID Ford Mustang GT 2011 FULL STOCK/STREET/PERF/CIRCUIT/DIRT/RAID LaFerrari FULL STOCK/PERF 2011 Aston Martin V8 Vantage S FULL STOCK/PERF Ruf 3400 K RAID Nissan Skyline GT-R (R34) FULL STOCK/STREET/PERF/CIRCUIT/DIRT/RAID Ford GT 2005 FULL STOCK/PERF/RACING Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 FULL STOCK/PERF BMW M5 2011 FULL STOCK/PERF Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera FULL STOCK/PERF/RACING Ford Focus RS 2010 FULL STOCK/STREET/PERF/RACING/DIRT/RAID Ruf CTR-3 FULL STOCK/PERF Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG (C197) FULL STOCK/PERF/RACING Maserati Gran Turismo S FULL STOCK/PERF 2015 Ford Mustang GT Fastback FULL STOCK/STREET/PERF 2010 Dodge Viper SRT-10 Coupe FULL STOCK/PERF/RACING The Wild Run update is free to all players, and the full expansion is available now for £24.99 on uPlay.

  23. UbIvory Tower The muppets developers behind the massively-massive-open-world-online-racer The Crew are now a part of the Ubisoft family, the publisher announced today. Ivory Tower, based in Lyon, France started waaaaaaay back in 2007 after a small team escaped from the dungeons of Eden Games (just kidding!) shortly after the release of Test Drive Unlimited. At the moment, the 100-strong workforce are as busy as giraffes working away on The Crew Wild Run for its November 17th 2015 release. The studio will continue to support the title through future updates which, via the release, we learn has had more than 3 million players experiencing the scaled down version of the USA found in it. "We've always enjoyed a very positive relationship with Ubisoft. Working together on The Crew, and celebrating its success, made us both understand that we have huge potential in continuing to work together in the future," Ivory Tower managing director Ahmed Boukhelifa said. "By joining Ubisoft, the team at Ivory Tower will continue to benefit from Ubisoft's infrastructure, support, tools, technology, and vision. In return, we will contribute our own expertise to the broader Ubisoft story." The game has had its fair share of criticisms and a number of these are certainly looking to be resolved with 'Wild Run' with the improved graphics, weather system and handling changes. One thing is certain, there has been no end of feedback provided to the team via social media and official forums and if they act upon this then the game can and will only get better and bring in even more players. It's so annoying to talk about potential in games especially if it's wasted, so come on Ivory, show them how it's done! Source: UbiBlog
  24. I thought I would compile a general FAQ of the most asked and common questions about the game. If you feel there is a question missing then please post it below, after ridiculing you we will ponder it for a while on whether to add it. :duck: [headline]The Crew: Unofficial FAQ[/headline] Favourites: Q: What platforms will The Crew be available on? A: The Crew will be available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. Q: What about the PS3? A: The PS3 architecture is too different to make the investment worthwhile, unfortunately. The X360 edition is made by Asobo studios (makers of FUEL). Initial feedback from players is that despite the limitations, it's a good port. Q: When is The Crew's release date? A: December 2, 2014!! Q: Will there be a monthly cost/subscription? A: No. You can even cruise online on consoles without requiring PS+/LIVE Gold. You do however need them for PvP lobbies and forming crews (multiplayer missions). And of course no subscription costs for PC players. Q: Can The Crew be played offline? A: No. Even on PC, your savegame data is saved online on the server instead of on a local HDD. If the server goes offline, you will be returned to the main menu and unable to sign in. Q: So what happens if there is connection issues or my internet explodes? A: It looks like if you can't connect, you can't play. :hmmm: Q: Is The Crew going to be available via Steam? A: Yes! And it included the Limited Edition bonuses. You can also buy the Season Pass (Gold Edition). UK users report that they cannot find The Crew in their Steam store, however they can ask a friend outside to buy the game for them as a gift. Q: Will The Crew have manual transmission? A: Originally it was for wheel users only, then enough of us cried so they are adding it for keyboard/pad/controller players too! :cool: Q: What are the physics like? :new: A: They're closer to the arcade side of the spectrum, but it's no Need for Speed gig, either. It feels a lot like TDU1 (normal mode). You need to brake for corners, and in hardcore mode, be modest with the amount of power/nitrous you use when exiting corners. You may need to endure the first few hours of gameplay until you install better car parts to further improve handling and make drifting possible. Q: So hardcore mode in The Crew is not like hardcore mode in TDU1? :new: A: Mostly correct. Your car isn't a featherweight with moon gravity, and you don't have to brake a mile before the next corner. It's also not quite as easy to break traction in mid-range cars. On the other hand, players with the fastest cars tuned to the max are reporting wheel spin in 7th gear, so you should be able to find the sweet spot by choosing the right level of upgrade parts. Q: Will there be a Closed Beta/Open Beta/Beta/Demo for The Crew? A: No... because the game is already Charlie (released)! The first Closed Beta for the PC ran from July 21st - 26th, with a second one between August 25th - 29th. Console betas were available in the final week of the following three months. No post-launch demo is available. Cars: Q: What number of cars will be in The Crew? A: So far we've counted 48 individual cars, plus their various specs - for the latest details, keep an eye on our Unofficial Car List. Q: There appear to be certain specs missing from some of the cars, compared to what I see the AI driving and from game trailers - where are they? :new: A: Don't panic, they'll become available in future updates and won't require micro-transactions. See here for the announcement. Q: Is there a cockpit view? A: Yes. The various tuning setups (Raid, Performance, Dirt etc) also have their own variations. Q: Will there be Japanese cars in The Crew? A: The Nissan 370Z and R34 Skyline make an appearance, see the car list thread for more details. Q: Is there a limit to how many cars we can have? A: You will be able to own every car in the game, there is no 10 car limit or anything like that. Q: What sort of damage with The Crew have? A: I'll leave the answer to this quote; "The Crew will include a full damage system that you can track in HQ. 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: Can we TEST DRIVE cars before buying them? A: I see what you did there.... and yes you can test drive the Full Stock versions of cars. :twisted: Q: Can we have more than one of the same car? :new: A: Yes and no. If the car has 5 specs available, then you can end up with each of them as 5 completely individual cars. You can't buy the same car and spec combination twice though. Bikes: Q: Will The Crew have bikes? A: Only cars for now.... Gameplay: Q: Can I remove all of the HUD from my screen? A: Yes, except for the names of other online freeride players in your session (developers are aware of this request). You can hide skill challenges from appearing, but last time we tested in a beta, you could still accidentally trigger them when cruising. Q: Can I smashy smashy bash bash things? A: Yes, although this will slow you down and damage your car. There are, however, in game Award Points for scaring thousands of pedestrians and damaging loads of property. Smashing items is also a handy way to keep Stunt combo's going. Q: Will The Crew have a photomode? A: Photomode has been confirmed by Ubi_Natchai. Q: Is 'active aero' active in The Crew? (popup wings, vents, picnic tables etc) A: Have to take them at their word on this, but it appears if a car in the game has it in real-life then it will have it in the game too. Q: Are there Police in The Crew? :new: A: Have you not seen ANY of the trailers for this game? Yes, there are. They make appearances in certain story and faction missions, and you can trigger online freeride police chases by crashing into a police car, or by crashing into a lot of traffic cars and/or property when near a police car. Q: Can I chase other players as a police car? :new: A: No. You can, however, help (or hinder) the police if they chase someone else in your freeride session. You can also start your own police chase and 'transfer' it to someone you are cruising with if their Wanted level exceeds yours at any point (if they crash into a lot of things in view of the police, or if you escape). Click to watch an example. Q: Traffic... ? A: Yes there will be. Traffic volume changes depending on location (city/rural) and time of day (peak hour). Q: Everything is so expensive! How am I supposed to purchase these supercars without resorting to buying more Crew Credits with microtransactions? :new: A: Fear not. You can click on Faction Missions on the map, and then choose Send Friends (assuming you have some). This doesn't contact your friends, but rather sends a virtual version of them on a simulated race. Do it right, and you can earn 160,000 Bucks every 3 hours. Q: The game always selects my best car within a certain spec when I start a race. How can I choose to race with a different (worse) car? :new: A: You are forced to use a car of the same spec as defined by the mission, but YOU CAN choose which car of that spec you complete the mission with. Just switch to the car you want to use before you launch the mission. Customisation/Tuning Q: What can I do to my car in The Crew? A: You will be able to customise the rims, bonnet/hood, front/rear bumpers, side-skirts, wings, fenders, lights, mirrors, engine etc Q: The interiors too? A: Yep, either from a default selection or via your own choices. Q: Will there be a livery editor/stickers! in The Crew? A: Yes, there are stickers to purchase in game with Bucks or CC. You cannot modify or layer multiple stickers on the one car, however. Additional stickers will be added as DLC. You can repaint the car colour independently of the stickers. Q: How do I change the paint of my full stock car? :new: A: Using any of the derivative tuned specs of that car, visit a tuner and purchase one of the Official paint colours. You can now visit your HQ in the full stock car, go to visual tuning and select the purchased colour. Audio Q: Is there a Radio/DJ in The Crew? Can I play my own music? A: There are different playlists built in similar to TDU1. There is no DJ/announcer. Using your own music is planned later. Hardware: Q: What are the PC system requirements for The Crew? :new: A: See here for minimum, recommended, and optimal PC specifications. Q: Will there be Track IR support in The Crew? A: Apparently it is in "their plans". Q: Will The Crew support a clutch? A: Yes, if you have a proper steering wheel setup. Clutch sensitivity, deadzone, and linearity can be adjusted in-game. Grinding noises play with bad shifts. Q: Will The Crew have 900 degree support? :new: A: PC will yes, consoles will be revealed later. However many are finding better gameplay with 540-680 degrees of rotation specified. Q: Can we get some little gold stars or something to show what was updated? :new: A: :new: ------------------------------------- A number of these answers have been gleamed from the official Q&A's that Ubisoft have on their official forums so be sure to check them out too!
