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).
I love em both to be honest. When I start playing either of them, I'm glued for a while albeit for different reasons. (2 minutes ago)
Halo is a lot more dependent on individual skill which makes gunfights more intense and Overwatch is far more dependent on team synergy. (6 minutes ago)
As someone who has a fair amount of hours in both Halo & Overwatch, I'd say they both scratch different itches, but Overwatch has the broader appeal. (10 minutes ago)

id still argue that halo is a fantastic game, just that 343 needs to learn to make decent maps. after all the forge custom map creation im surprised they still haven't learned to just embellish (2 Hours ago)
