The Crew is a revolutionary action-driving MMO developed exclusively for next-gen consoles and high-end PCs that leverage new hardware capabilities to connect players online like never before. The Crew takes you and your friends on a wild ride across a massive open-world recreation of the United States that is loaded with exciting challenges. Generous in content and tailored for the connected generation, The Crew is the next-gen game that redefines action-driving.

The most varied driving experience of all time

Take part in a relentless ride to move up the ranks of the 510s, a gang grown around Detroit's illegal street racing scene, making a rep for yourself on the underground racing scene and ultimately taking down their activities all across the United States.

Manoeuvre through the bustling streets of New York City to lose the cops, cruise down sunny Miami Beach, or trek through the breathtaking plateaus of Monument Valley. Each locale comes with its own set of surprises and driving challenges to master. On your journey you will encounter other players on the road, all potentially worthy companions with whom to crew up, or future rivals against whom to compete.

Never drive alone

Join a living, breathing world of car enthusiasts, where you always have someone next to you, ready to take on new challenges with or against you. Jump seamlessly in and out of each other's games at any time, joining forces to overcome the toughest challenges: takedown a rival faction driver on Las Vegas Strip, escape the police patrols across downtown Chicago, or confront an opponent crew on Florida's beachfront highways. Make new encounters, cooperate with your friends, and beat their achievements when they're gone. Build your crew of four drivers and take them in a thrilling ride through the entire US.


The entire United States is your driving playground, covering thousands of square miles from city to suburb, county to county, state to state, coast to summit. Discover what freedom truly means, without any barriers to restrict your car to the road, in a world of unprecedented scope and loaded with exciting challenges. Crush rival crews in illegal street races in Detroit, chase down that last Colorado collectable in the snowy mountain peaks of Aspen, beat everyone on the racing track, or run after a target in the water drains of Los Angeles. This is driving at its most exciting, varied and open.

Prepare your car for the next job

A new generation of hardware requires new standards. Exclusively developed for the next generation of consoles and high-end PCs, The Crew offers a massive open-world version of the United States, recreated with amazing graphics and level of details. A world in which any driving fantasy can be realised – street, dirt, cross-country, circuit. A world brimming with life, challenges, and activities to keep you entertained for long. Continue the experience on iOS, Android tablets, and on the web. Keep track of your friends' performances to beat their scores when you're back in the game, or tinker with your ride and play it live to set new records.

I'm waiting for the reviews myself, if it's any good then I'll buy it, simple as.

good find op, heat added

Also this game is capped at 30 fps. I would have bought it and I will when it works properly. However at the moment people like us need to stop being idiots and paying for gimped products by ubisoft or any other company.

From the gameplay videos on YouTube this game looks like one of them driving games you find in an arcade, upon hearing about this game I was hoping for a game similar to TDU games.

I think TDU1 is about as good as we are gonna get, that game hands down had the best handling, realistic enough that you couldn't take a corner at 100mph but fun enough that you could spend lots of hours on it.

Ahh good to know. I would buy this, but recently I am having a bit of a renaissance of mentality. Digital distribution is not for the people, not for me at least. We're all slaves to these companies whims. DLC, region locks, they can ban you at the drop of a hat. No thanks. Online only games are not worth the hassle. But thank you for letting me know anyways. I am seriously reconsidering buying games which are linked to digital services altogether.

Ye its annoying that its online only. Theres no reason for this game to be online only, it would have worked just as good if they just made it optional. The game is primarily a single player game anyway. Even if you have friends who have the game, unless you are up to the exact same point in the story all the time you will end up repeating old missions and backtracking so they can catch up.

EXACTLY, I'm telling you man, this is akin to modern day slavery. Games which are perfectly capable of being offline are forced to login to online servers. The reason? probably piracy, as it is clear the racing genre is somewhat lagging. However even though i understand companies wanting to stop piracy, you see all sorts of DRM being hacked and cracked all over the place. With users like myself who have had a buttload of issues trying to update these bloody games before playing them and even then there are server issues etc.

Sadly there's a very large pubic out there who are perfectly happy with this sort of thing and that is absolutely fine. However the more I think about this the more I am becoming sick to my teeth with DLC and updates, and rights management, and drm, activation/deactivation of devices. Its just too much. Sucks the joy right out of gaming.

For example, remember in the days of the ps2, even the last gen. You could for the most part get a game, pop it in and start playing. Now? You need to install most games, then update them, then log into the online service, then hope the servers are running. No, just no.
