Ubisoft Steers Gamers Into Next-Gen With New Open World Driving Title The Crew

Ubisoft has revealed The Crew (check out the screenshots here), a revolutionary online action-driving game developed for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and for 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 exciting 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.

Finally, players can continue to interact with The Crew game world on a second screen via the companion application that will be available soon for iOS and Android devices. The Crew companion app will allow for peripheral, complementary experiences, providing a more intricate player experience overall.

"We want to give players a driving experience that goes way beyond the classic circuit-based racing games and really captures the boundless sense of freedom of driving across the U.S.," said, Julian Gerighty, creative director, Ubisoft. "Our teams are harnessing the power of next-generation platforms to make The Crew a challenging, immersive and non-stop world that can be shared by millions of players. This is a brand new driving game experience unlike anything that's come before it."

Yeah this is right at the top of my list of games I'm most looking forward to, somehow missed this one until my friend text me telling me to check it out, this and The Division are the two that have stood out to me most so far from E3.
