The Crew details leak out
Now more details on the game have been revealed from a playtester who has released his impressions of the game.
-The Crew is expected to play similar to Ubisoft Reflections most recent racer Driver: San Francisco, with a semi-arcade style of racing.
-As with Driver: San Francisco, The Crew will be open world with the ability to travel between New York City and Los Angeles, though the scale of these cities has been reduced.
-It is not clear whether you will travel through wilderness to reach each city or whether the game will simply load in each area.
-The Crew will also feature a similar 'Google Maps' style mechanic, presumably for navigating the open world.
-A 'Freeride' mode will be available too, which the option to choose between missions or challenges.
-Multiplayer will feature 8 players in either competitive or co-operative gameplay, though no more specific details were provided.
-As is the case with Ubisoft's Watch Dogs - and presumably many of the publisher's next-gen games - The Crew will come with a companion app for mobile devices.
-It is presumed that The Crew's release date will be before the end of 2013, presumably to tie into a next-gen release. With such a close release date, it's safe to assume The Crew will be announced at E3 2013.
