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.
But they haven't stayed consistent. In BF1 the best vanilla SMG is *by far* the hardest to unlock. (4 Hours ago)
Example: the best AR in BF3/4 is the AEK and it's one of the first guns you unlock in both games. (4 Hours ago)
@Tinks: Right.. a lot of their unlocks avoid this issue by putting all the best stuff at the front of the unlock tree. (4 Hours ago)
the unlock rate is bad when it means gaining perk advantages against others with less playtime. (5 Hours ago)
and then letting you use those weapons against users who don't have them has always seemed wrong to me (11 Hours ago)
@MikeManiac61: I don't mind the unlock rate too much (although there are a few exceptions in BF1) since they frontload the best weapons a lot of the time. But locking good weapons behind DLC (11 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: Having the same sentiments. It's reminding me of Battlefront 2 and their system where you have to grind so much for an unlock. (11 Hours ago)
