The Crew, an online racing video game that sets in a large open world environment is released today. What differentiates this game from the rest of the major releases by Ubisoft this year is that gamers won’t see any reviews of The Crew until 12 hours after the game launches on December 2nd.
Although many players would like to seek experts for their professional advice, there won’t be any reviews of The Crew until its launch day. According to Ubisoft, The Crew was built from the beginning to be a living playground full of driving fans, so it’s only possible to assess our game in its entirety with other real players in the world, which indicates that the game can’t be simulated with a handful of developers playing alongside the press.
For this very reason, The Crew will be available to media to begin their reviews when the game launches on December 2. There will be absolutely no embargo on any type of coverage once the game is available for sale. In addition, Ubisoft also promised that the game will have great performance in stability and its develop team will have what it takes to make a successful launch.
In the game, players will have the chance to customize their ride as they progress through all five regions, explore every corner of the map solo and with friends, dive into our competitive and cooperative mechanics, and race to the end of the main campaign, choose a Faction and compete with the crew in Factions Wars, and so much more.
