The Crew Trailer: Drive Socially
Everything's better if you do it with other people. This new trailer for The Crew proves just that.
This is the second part of the "On the Road with The Crew" series, which introduces us to the many ways you'll race around with other players, both friends and foes.
In the example given, the player character starts off with a basic car that must be upgraded and made into a sexier machine in order to be more competitive. As we see in the trailer, the player character gets run off the road by another, really aggressive player. We see the potential for massive trolling in this game.
Luckily, the PC hooks up with some friends and manages to form a crew with them. Together, they help take out the aggressive jerk who attacked our hero earlier, although it's unclear whether or not they actually kill him by running him off the road. So, yeah... that's got the potential to be pretty dark.
We're also given a peek at how multiplayer co-op gaming will work, showing how you can fast travel to Chicago with your crew in order to participate in a Getaway mission that tasks them with running away from the cops. Afterwards, the player is given free reign to explore the east coast and race their friends' ghosts.
As you can see, the world of The Crew is expansive and revolves around playing with others, either directly or indirectly. And as Ubisoft has lauded, you'll never drive alone.
Hook up with other drivers when The Crew drops on Nov. 11 for the PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
