The Crew is new MMO racing game

The Crew takes places across the whole of America.

Ubisoft has announced The Crew, a new racing game that incorporates MMO elements and takes places across the whole of America.

The game is coming to the Xbox One, PS4 and PC and takes full advantage of the next-gen consoles' ability to cope with large maps, allowing for seamless movement throughout massive worlds.

Know locations in which the game will take place include the cities of New York, Miami and Las Vegas.

In development at Ivory Tower, with veterans from the team that developed the Test Drive Unlimited series, the game incorporates a persistent online play space, where single-player and multiplayer elements are seamlessly blended together. There's also a team element involved with players creating a team of drivers, i.e. the Crew.

Cars can be extensively modded, with the game allowing the player to completely strip back the car and build it back up. Combined with the team aspects of the game there will no doubt be a focus on specialising particular cars for particular duties.

The Crew release date is sat at early 2014.

Will we see servers allowing PC, Xbox and PS to all connect and play together?

With some of the veteran devs from the TDU team working on the team for this project, it could do quite well. Hopefully it won't follow similar plans to TDU2 though. :\
Hopefully it'll have an element where the players who choose to drive police vehicles can track down and chase other players who break certain laws.

Would be interested in seeing some gameplay videos and a features list in the not so distant future.

Afraid I can't help you there, I read as far as his name and stopped reading as well. :\

Looks fantastic. A game where 'old man grumpies' like me can actually see the 'social' aspects of a game being integral. I hope they pull it off and what we saw was not akin to Colonial Marines.
