Our videos of The Crew's beta

Our videos of The Crew's beta

Ubisoft launched The Crew's PC beta this monday, thus we ofer you some gameplay videos in Detroit. More free roaming videos are coming soon.

Note: these videos were captured at 60 FPS using a modified config file, the final game will obviously offer options to limit framerate. As there is some bugs in the beta while forcing 60 FPS, and some frame drops while capturing, the next videos will mostly be in 30 FPS.

Can't quite put my finger on it, but it just looks... a bit shit.

It just doesn't gel, or look finished (beta, I know, I know), but at this stage you'd hope it would look like a "together" kind of product.

A bit gutted tbh. Was looking forward to it :(

I'm not really shocked, but I'm still hoping it comes together. TDU was awesome in concept but had pretty bad gameplay.

Gameplay is solid in The Crew, content too overall. Now don't expect a game that will blow your mind graphics wise.

True, but I enjoyed that one. :o/

Can you still get onto the beta program?

edit: Just signed up for it. Fingers crossed :)

All the TDU fans on the French side apparently love The Crew, there's actually a lot more than meets the eye. If you liked TDU, I don't see how you could not have fun with The Crew.

Played it last night (drunk), physics are non existent or was that me?? Hmmm...

It was probably you considering a hardcore sim fan is happy with the physics on the French side. Now of course if you were in assist mode instead of sport or hardcore... It's no RBR though obviously. :)

Well, the proof of the pudding is in the eating, so I will stuff my face when it comes out and I'll see if I'm not sick afterwards. :D

Well Drifty old chap i will have another go then ;)

Whether you like it or not, please share your feelings with us. The devs might be reading. ^^

i think its pretty fun. handling reminds me of old school arcade games. dont like how the jumps feel tho, reminds me of codemasters weirdness. txaa is also broken.

This would work as a f2p game, looks quite bad for a 60$ game.
Commented on 2014-07-24 02:48:44
Just cant make my mind up about this tbh. Looks fun but im just thinking they may have been a bit too ambitious in scale. Oh and that overhead guidance bar just bugs the hell out of me everytime i see it. Why couldnt they have just used the same navigation system as every other open world racer?? If it aint broke dont fix it.
Commented on 2014-07-24 02:59:06
if you want to compare this to a F2P game look no further than NFSW, id prefer this over NFSW and the TDU reference has got me wanting the game so much more, please tell me is this more like the 'hardcore' mode from the first TDU, if the physics are like the second TDU then ill be a bit worried as TDU2's physics really disappointed me given how much fun hardcore mode was.

That's all I need. If they nailed some of the concepts from TDU with even slightly better car handling, I'd be intrigued.

That's the team behind TDU1, not 2. The physics are way better than the first TDU.

In some videos there's no background music while racing, is it off?

Yeah sorry I turn off the radio most of the time :D

To me it looks just like TDU2 with smoother objects, which is not bad. The graphics are good enough, I just think that for a PS4 game it would not be impossible to look like, say, Drive Club. The models are already done, just tweak the rendering engine and lights a bit.
Did you guys see any other Japanese cars besides Nissans in this game or is there still an information embargo on the car lits?

i loved the physics in the first TDU 'hardcore mode physics' Eden/Atari ruined the physics in TDU2, good to hear the team from the first TDU are working on this, should be epic (not the dev/studio Epic lol).

Looks like it belongs somewhere in the year 2010.
(not trolling, to me it really doesn't look like a game released end of 2014)

About the game

What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The only thing developers need is a market to sell games to. It certainly worked for the 3DS. And now Nintendo has one thing to focus on. (3 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker It should be interesting to see then what the actual specs are and if it's beneficial for developers to actually bring their games to it. It sadly didn't work for Wii U. Hope it will be different now. (5 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm kinda bummed that there's no second screen utility to the thing. Some WiiU ports may be tricky. (6 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It looks like it has active cooling (fans) too.. that's a good sign. (7 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The dock doesn't need to add processing power for software to "run more easily" while docked. They'll downclock on battery power to conserve battery life. (8 minutes ago)

    Moonwalker And she gave more little details about it. She seems pretty reliable. I am not getting my hopes up though. (9 minutes ago)
