If you are into virtual road trips, you're not without knowing that a new PC beta for The Crew started a few days ago. Ubisoft gave away a good number of codes but if you haven't been able to get one or if you're waiting for the console beta in September, here are four videos we captured during an hour long free ride session with two unknown gentlemen drivers. Obviously, the game is not as visually and technically impressive as we'd hope, but aside from the technical flaws of this beta, the size of the map and its variety offer some great moments across this condensed version of the US. The world Ivory Tower created is very lively, with pedestrians, a lot of traffic in urban areas and wild animals, and this might be where the game will stand out when compared to other games of the genre. Most importantly, driving is fun, especially when you have a bunch of friends around, and it's nothing like the NFS series.
A few more things
• Videos were captured in hardcore mode with a 360 controller.
• The red Camaro is the full stock version of the car.
• We uncapped the beta's frame rate to enjoy some 60 fps smoothness to capture the videos but our computer sometimes had a hard time maintaining a perfectly steady frame rate because of Mirilis.
• Sound is 5.1 in the videos and always will be for all our PC captures from now on (should you choose to download our footage that is).
Say welcome to seasson passes, split comunity, having to pay more than $60 for the game to get all the maps or heroes I want, so yeah I will take lootboxes on Overwatch over having to buy a season pas (1 minute ago)
If you remove lootboxes for cosmetic stuff that doesn't affect gameplay at all on Overwatch, them forget about getting free maps, free new heroes, free content in general. (2 minutes ago)
@KORNdog: Agreed. They're in on it too, so fuck em. (1 Hour ago)
And ive noticed it, not only offline, but online. Its the reason why i stopped buying them after Fifa 13. (1 Hour ago)
yet that's exactly what they were doing with their pay to win loot crates. basically they're ok with fucking up MP balance if you're paying for it. but i'll be damned if you try doing it for free! (1 Hour ago)
@Tiz: dice are sadly not free from blame either. i've seen them trying to justify their actions regarding them limiting the amount of credits you can earn in single player as to not disrupt MP (1 Hour ago)
sounds like a conspiracy theory, but it isn't. There's plenty of videos on Youtube talking about it. (1 Hour ago)
