    Default The Crew {DT} - Ivory Tower & Ubisoft Reflections do a Racer where you go Cruisin' USA!

    [UPDATE #1: 2nd June 2013]

    The Crew, le jeu de course Ubisoft : nos infos - Gameblog.fr

    * Like Driver:SF, the map will be a "Google Map" like.

    * In "freeride"; player will be free to choose between missions, or challenges.

    * The Multiplayer will be competitive and cooperative with a player limit set to 8 players.

    * A companion app (for iOs and Android) will be published

    * The version our source was able to play was running on X360.

    * Game should be released end 2013
    Google Translation

    * Contrary to some rumours of a similar to a Gran Turismo or Forza positioning, driving would rather semi-arcade: accessible, fun and effective.

    * The game is in the United States, Open World, and it would be possible to go from one city to another, for example from New York to Los Angeles. The distance scale is however reduced.

    * The solo experience seems closely intertwined in multiplayer, since it will be possible to join other players at any time for specific tasks or challenges.

    * The multiplayer would focus as much on the competition that the cooperation between the players, and it would be possible to be up to 8 on the same test

    Far from Gran Turismo or Forza Motorsport , The Crew seems to be trying to offer a more like a car game Test Drive Unlimited and a Driver San Francisco , where freedom and driving pleasure precedence over realism or simulation.
    Just saw this too: Recent tweet on the @GamesLabUbi account looking for playtesters of sim/arcade variety.

    "The Crew"? what a crappy name for a racing game.

    Otherwise it all sounds potentially promising.

    This.

    Though I'm slightly leery to see exactly how "realistic" they intend it to be.

    People are starting to relate this to Ivory now, so things are indeed getting interesting again regarding this project.

    'The Crew' sounds like a gang related game if you ask me!

    Will keep an eye, hopefully we here something at E3.

    Well 'The Crew' hints at a group or a collaborative effort to solve or complete tasks so maybe it has a similar aspect as DRIVECLUB or maybe it's simply about your character being a part of a group in a single player campaign, being ex TDUteam I think a good focus will be for online. It all depends on what Ubi has told them to do with the project mind you.

    I assume it's not going to be an open-world "drive around Hawaii to your heart's content" type game, then.

    I want a new TD game. Thanks. If this will be another wannabe-sim game, then I am going to be disappointed.

    For PC, of course.

    Well we need to remember what "realistic" actually is when said by a developer or worse... a publisher.

    When the concept art starts to feature buckets.... one could wonder what the heck is going on..


    Will this be The Warriors with a bit of cars, or yet another attempt to make a racegame with a storyline (of which we already know the answer: that it will NEVER MATCH).

    It's next-generation level of detail.

    "Using the power of next-gen consoles and PC we are now able to add another obstacle to hamper the successful running of your garage with your 'crew' and that is plants. Yes plants, not only do you have to race, challenge, tune, modify and repair your vehicles but also take care of the plants by keeping them watered (but not too much!) because as everyone knows, dead plants equals a dead business."

    Can see the dialog for the game...

    "what you packing? A Butterfly Orchid? Thats nice and all but aint nothing to my Agapanthus!"
    "would you look at this small fry? Would't know his Mini Carnation from a Zantedeschia!"
    "Go back to growing Daffodil's boyo, we all got Campanula in this part"

    Well, if you look at the art works, at least Indians will definitely be there. One of them reminds me Lol Wayne.

    Odd seeing a Native American Indian in a Miami Heat basketball shirt.

    Some of these screens of the swamp and that shirt lead me to believe Miami could be a spot in the game. Not sure about those snowy mountains though.

    EDIT: Also, a swagged out Hummer H2 screams Florida.
