Ubisoft Announces The Crew
Ubisoft today revealed The Crew, an online action-driving game developed exclusively for Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PC, to be released early 2014.
Development of The Crew is being led by Ivory Tower, a team of racing game veterans and an exclusive partner to Ubisoft, in collaboration with several Ubisoft studios including Reflections, a Ubisoft studio best known for its work on the Driver franchise.
The Crew propels gamers on a reckless ride through a massive open world version of the United States of America, brimming with challenges and diverse terrain – from city to suburb, county to county, state to state, coast to summit. The Crew redefines the level of freedom players experience in a driving game by offering a playground of unprecedented scope in which any driving fantasy can be realized: street, dirt, cross-country, circuit and more.
To bring that vision to life, The Crew leverages the capabilities of new hardware to connect players online like never before. The Crew’s persistent online world is populated by other real players, meaning any other car is a potential rival or ally, and naturally fostering both competition and cooperation among players. This living world provides a tailored experience to a new generation of gamers, as each player is given the choice to play alone, or to team up on-the-go with friends to accomplish collective challenges.
