New cars for The Crew

New cars for The Crew

Although not flawless on many aspects, The Crew is getting new content with the January car pack included in the game's Season Pass. Three new cars will be added to all those who purchased it: the Aston Martin V12 Zagato, the 2013 SRT Viper GTS and the rather underwhelming Abarth 500. Nothing too exciting compared to the cars that are available in the original game, especially since these three cars are just as limited as all the others in terms of specs. Indeed, only one spec is available for the Aston Martin and the Viper (Perf) and two for the Abarth (Street and Perf). Let us remind you that this kind of limitation was one of the game's major disappointment since only the very first cars you can buy when starting the game can be upgraded in all the five available specs. Driving around the US is still quite enjoyable, but all the improvements and corrections the community has been asking aren't there yet. After just a month since its release, it's quite normal in a way, but if Ivory Tower wants to keep players interested in the long run, the French team really needs to crank it up a notch. Check out our new homemade video of the PC version showing all three new cars in their available specs.

I really love the freedom of this game and I think it looks great, but still hesitating to buy it. :-)

Agree with every word in the text. I'm still waiting with buying this game. It's really underwhelming in many ways.

ive got the game and all i can think of is why are you waiting, it's a ton of fun.

out of the new cars the Abarth 500 is great fun especially on Perf tune, great at drifting and has an insane top speed it gives the more expensive cars in the game a real challenge (remember the crew is an arcade game), once you unlock the faction missions the game no longer becomes a grind as you can easily get 80,000 bucks doing the fugitive mission in New York which i can complete in less than 30 minutes yet the challenge gives you 60 minutes so even a Raid car at around 700 tune points should have no problem completing the challenge within the time given.

    KORNdog [url] there's a rundown on the reviews so far (1 minute ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Which is good. That's how sequels should be evaluated in my opinion. (1 minute ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Things I would identify as typically "Resident Evil", but I think most are reviewing this game on its own merits and not based on how it makes them feel about the franchise. (1 minute ago)

    KORNdog i'm just happy there is no more zombie suplexing and rock punching anywhere to be seen. lol (3 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: who said it looks like RE1? i said reviews are saying it's capturing the same vibe. ie. horror. survival. slower paced. a singular location. constant sense of dread, item management etc (5 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX If only it had the same quality live action video :D (9 minutes ago)

    Moonwalker @GriftGFX: Oh that's crystal clear. I do wonder if it means it will stay first person from here on out. It probably will so it will work for VR. (9 minutes ago)
