|"Today, a source confirmed that Ubisoft has been working on an all new racing franchise called "The Crew," being developed by Ubisoft's Reflection's Studio. It's been described to me as a "realistic title, possibly being positioned against Forza and Gran Turismo."|
Possible GT/Forza Competitor?
|-The Crew will offer a game experience close to DRIVER: San Francisco.|
-The gameplay is rather semi-arcade, accessible, fun and efficient.
-The open world is in North America, with the possibility to travel between New York City and Los Angeles (reduced scale).
-Like DRIVER: San Francisco, the map will be similar to “Google Maps”.
-In “freeride”, players will be free to choose between missions or challenges.
-Multiplayer will be competitive and co-operative with an upper limit of 8 players per-session.
-A companion app for mobile devices will be published
-The source of this leak tested the game on the Xbox 360 console, but previous job listings seem to hint that a PS4 version is also in the works.
-The release date is expected to be announced before the end 2013
OP will be updated as news comes.
