This second to last video from Gamescom will take you for a drive in Saint Louis behind the wheel of one of The Crew's 4x4. It's a short extract but it should still give you a nice taste of the game's free riding mode. You can see that the streets can be pretty busy, which should help make Ivory Tower's game more immersive. As the build we filmed was not final, you may catch a few technical problems here and there, but from what we saw last week, there have been some nice graphics improvements over what was shown at E3 a few months ago. We liked the nice lighting effects when driving down Fremont street, Las Vegas, or the sense of overwhelming height the skyscrapers convey. Filming isn't usually allowed during Behind Closed Doors presentations, so we want to thank the developers and Ubisoft once again. Because we love the idea of cruising around the US freely, our expectations are high, but so far, we like what we've seen.
Note: There is no sound in the video because we had some technical problems with the camera when we filmed the footage.

I'm already not playing Battlefield because I'm not crazy with what DICE is doing with it. They've got a lot of work to do. (12 Hours ago)
EA is far from out of the woods, but I don't think this is the steep downhill incline you imagine for the industry. I'm not buying the doom and gloom. (12 Hours ago)
If they can develop revenue streams that don't negatively impact the user experience.. most will try. (12 Hours ago)
And while publishers may want to pursue service models, there are relatively good ways of handling that. Add to this the fact that most developers don't really want to ruin their games. (12 Hours ago)
EA is already dropping the ball all over the place. But people are reacting to it, more than ever. (12 Hours ago)
