The Crew is Always Online and Features No Dynamic Weather
The Crew launches this November and with its release drawing near, Ubisoft has taken it on themselves to answer some of the most frequently asked questions by fans.
Speaking on the uPlay YouTube channel, Creative Director Julian Gerighty confirmed that the game would require a constant Internet connection for players to play. The game is only multiplayer and in case of your ISP conking out, players will no longer be able to participate in races and so on.
Gerighty then revealed that The Crew boasts around 6000 square kilometers of road for players to burn rubber on. The best part is that there will be no loading sequences so players can potentially drive from coast to coast without experiencing any kind of transitioning effect.
That said, when you start a mission there will be a short loading screen, with the screen detailing what type of mission it is and what are its objectives.
It may come as a surprise but The Crew features no dynamic weather. Seeing that Ubisoft has taken its time with the game, one would assume the feature to be included in there.
2014 is a tough year for racing games’ publishers and a great time for fans. Aside from The Crew, there’s also DriveClub, Project Cars and Forza Horizon 2 to look forward to; all of which are releasing within the same period.
The Crew is scheduled for release on November 11 in North America and three days later in Europe for the PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
