    How can I fix the problem so I can play online?
    Please follow the steps below to improve your experience:


    1. Firewall Software
    Start by updating any anti-virus or personal firewall software that may be installed on your computer. For 3rd party software (ZoneAlarm, Norton AntiVirus/Internet Security, Mcafee, Avast, etc) check with the appropriate software vendor for details on updating the software and definitions.

    You also need to consider the Windows Firewall (accessed via the Control Panel as seen below) which may block the game from accessing the Internet. Please note that to update your Windows Firewall definitions you will need to keep your Windows Updates up to date.

    If updating these programs does not resolve the issue, you may need to configure the software to allow access to the specific application. This is generally done through the exceptions list (may be named differently depending on your software). When adding the game as an exception remember to add the executable (exe) for both the game and Uplay.


    2. Ports
    If following the steps above to update and configure your firewall does not resolve the issue, it will be necessary to forward ports. You will need to forward these ports to your computer’s IP address for the best possible connection:


    The Crew Multiplayer ports

    UDP: 3000, 3001, 3002, 3003 Incoming / Outgoing



    Uplay PC

    TCP: 80, 443, 13000, 14000, 14008




    Directions for configuring network ports are specific to the software and hardware being used, and can be found by visiting the manufacturers website.

    There are also free resources available such as Port Forward which may help (you can skip the ad to get to the guides). Please note this site is not affiliated with Ubisoft.


    3. Background applications
    You may also encounter problems due to applications running in the background on your computer system. If you are encountering problems playing online, please try closing all running background applications before starting your game. You can find the steps for this listed below.

    - Click Start and type MSCONFIG into the Search box and click OK.
    - This will open the System Configuration Utility on the General tab.
    - Click on the Startup tab, and then click the 'Disable All' button.
    - Click Ok and then restart your system when prompted.


    Note: this should be seen as a temporary solution and any changes can be reverted by returning to the MSCONFIG utility and clicking 'Enable All" on the Startup tab.


    4. Hosts file
    The hosts file is a small text file which is part of the Windows operating system. This can be used to route traffic or sometimes block a website.

    To rule this out when dealing with problems accessing the game, it should be cleaned or reset. The easiest way to clean your HOSTS file is by clicking on the Fix it button on the Microsoft article found here (Windows 8 users, please see the Fix it myself link).


    5. Traffic throttling / Blocked ports
    There may also be certain restrictions set by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). If you continue to have trouble, please contact your ISP for details on any specific restrictions on the previously mentioned network ports.

    First DLC coming s**n

    Next week, all players who acquired The Crew Season Pass will have an anticipated access to three following new cars.

    The ASTON MARTIN V12 ZAGATO
    The 2013 SRT VIPER GTS
    The ABARTH 500

    Starting on Tuesday evening, January 13, these cars will be available (to Season Pass owners only) in the car dealers.

    One week later, everyone else will be able to purchase the entire car pack or the cars individually and here they are:

    ASTON MARTIN V12 ZAGATO
    The V12 Zagato launched in 2012 as the pinnacle of the Vantage range. It is also the latest expression of a successful creative collaboration that has given rise to a series of striking GT cars over the last half-century, the original and most iconic of which being the DB4GT Zagato.


    2013 SRT VIPER GTS
    Anyone with common sense will tell you not to mess with a Viper. This particular predator is the latest in the series of powerful two seaters, with 640hp developed through a massive V-10 engine. This car’s venomous performance will top any opposition.


    ABARTH 500
    Originally released in 1949 as a car for the people, it was one of the first cars focused on urban driving. 65 years on this highly tuned hatch still owns the city streets, with Abarth tuning under the hood this car has a sting in its tail.

    Hope you haven't already spent hours getting all the platinum skill medals

    A new community challenge is upon you.

    From the 12th to the 16th of January, we will be tracking the Gold (and Platinum) medals that all of you will be earning in any Skill Challenge.

    If you manage to reach 1.5 Million medals, accumulated on all the platforms, we will add for you an exclusive new faction mission. Once available in the game, this faction mission will be accessible to everyone and on its first appearance you will be able to test your skill in a new community challenge.

    We will be sharing more information about that new challenge when gold and platinum medals will start to stream in, so get ready!

    March 18 Patch notes:

    Features:
    New PVP mode available - Blitz Brawl
    Blitz Brawl is a fast-paced game mode where players rush to scoring zones and fight to stay within them.
    A scoring zone is activated by the first player who enters it and remains active for the next 10 seconds. During this time, any player inside the zone will score points. Bonus points are also awarded to the player who activated the zone.
    After 10 seconds, the zone is deactivated and a new one will instantly appear, randomly chosen from a list. Stay alert!
    In team games, the team’s total points are what count. Working together is crucial.
    Blitz Brawl comes with 10 new missions – 2 for each region.
