From the Manufacturer

Welcome to the next generation of driving games

The Crew is a revolutionary action-driving MMO developed exclusively for next-gen consoles and high-end PCs that leverage new hardware capabilities to connect players online like never before. The Crew takes you and your friends on a wild ride across a massive open-world recreation of the United States that is loaded with exciting challenges. Generous in content and tailored for the connected generation, The Crew is the next-gen game that redefines action-driving.

Take part in a relentless ride to move up the ranks of the 510s, a gang grown around Detroit's illegal street racing scene, making a rep for yourself on the underground racing scene and ultimately taking down their activities all across the United States.

The most varied driving experience of all time

Manoeuvre through the bustling streets of New York City to lose the cops, cruise down sunny Miami Beach, or trek through the breathtaking plateaus of Monument Valley. Each locale comes with its own set of surprises and driving challenges to master. On your journey you will encounter other players on the road, all potentially worthy companions with whom to crew up, or future rivals against whom to compete.

Join a living, breathing world of car enthusiasts, where you always have someone next to you, ready to take on new challenges with or against you. Jump seamlessly in and out of each other's games at any time, joining forces to overcome the toughest challenges: takedown a rival faction driver on Las Vegas Strip, escape the police patrols across downtown Chicago, or confront an opponent crew on Florida's beachfront highways. Make new encounters, cooperate with your friends, and beat their achievements when they're gone. Build your crew of four drivers and take them in a thrilling ride through the entire US.

Live all the adventures of driving

The entire United States is your driving playground, covering thousands of square miles from city to suburb, county to county, state to state, coast to summit. Discover what freedom truly means, without any barriers to restrict your car to the road, in a world of unprecedented scope and loaded with exciting challenges. Crush rival crews in illegal street races in Detroit, chase down that last Colorado collectable in the snowy mountain peaks of Aspen, beat everyone on the racing track, or run after a target in the water drains of Los Angeles. This is driving at its most exciting, varied and open.

A new generation of hardware requires new standards. Exclusively developed for the next generation of consoles and high-end PCs, The Crew offers a massive open-world version of the United States, recreated with amazing graphics and level of details. A world in which any driving fantasy can be realised – street, dirt, cross-country, circuit. A world brimming with life, challenges, and activities to keep you entertained for long. Continue the experience on iOS, Android tablets, and on the web. Keep track of your friends' performances to beat their scores when you're back in the game, or tinker with your ride and play it live to set new records.

Welcome to next-gen driving

Earn new vehicles as you progress and customise them according to your style and driving preferences. Do you have the required mastery for an endurance race, or the lightning-fast reflexes to tackle an epic downhill rally? Collect cosmetic and performance parts, including stickers, liveries, rims, bumpers, skirts, wings, and hoods. Make your car unique and take it on any terrain, such as asphalt, snow, sand, dirt, or grass – anywhere you go, there's always a friend to show it off to, and more people to beat.

Continue the experience on iOS, Android tablets, and on the web with The Crew companion game. Tinker with your ride before playing it live, equip car parts, chat remotely, browse your friends' profiles, and send your crew on jobs on-the-go.

Key gameplay features

Tuning specs

Full Stock: How it rolls off the dealer lot. This is your basic ride and a 'blank canvas' for your own modified evolutions!

Street: Dealer options and off-the-shelf DIY additions. Usable day-to-day ride with enough grunt to have serious fun.

Dirt: Crash cage, uprated suspension, dirt tyres, newer models uprated to all-wheel drive. Go tear up those backwoods!

Raid: Crash cage chassis, uprated suspension and transmission, high-profile off-road tyres on steel rims. This is a 'go anywhere' ride, so what are you waiting for?

Performance: Anything to get the power up! Holes cut here and there, after market components, track day tyres on lightweight rims.

Circuit: Wider track, lower ride height, interior stripped out, crash cage, seats and harness, pro engine tuning, low-profile racing slicks, super wide rims. Not road legal!

Missions

Go To: Your aim is to get from one point to another any way you can before time runs out. Keep your eyes peeled for shortcuts and take the racing line.

Collect: Pick up all the items scattered around the map as fast as your engine will allow, because if time runs out you're done. Keep your wits about you and take the optimum route.

Get Away: There are people out to get you and now your only option is to floor it before half the local PD or gang descend on you like a ton of bricks.

Follow: Follow one of your posse to the next hideout or tail a target until time runs out. Anticipate their movements and take shortcuts where necessary.

Takedown: Your car is your weapon. Put that weapon to good use as you chase down and stop a bad dude or dudette.

Outrun: You've got a destination to reach and not enough time to get there – pass through checkpoints on the route and add some precious extra seconds to the clock.

Race: Your aim in Race missions is – what else? – to win. Floor the accelerator, take the racing line, and beat down any other drivers foolish enough to come close.

Skills

These challenges are arcade-oriented mini-games peppered across the world that will put your driving senses to good use. They trigger as you drive through them and can be tackled from any direction.

Climb: Get your car as high as possible in the time limit.

Escape: Get as far as possible from the marker within the time limit.

Follow: Stay on the line for as long as possible in the given time.

Jump: Hit a ramp, grab some hang time, and land as close as possible to the centre of a target before time runs out.

Precision: Pass through as many gates as possible in the given time.

Scramble: Hunt down and collect as many items as possible in the given time.

Slalom: Weave through as many gates as possible in a given time limit.

Speed: Grab the fastest car you have, stomp your foot down, and drive as fast as possible in the time limit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good game with a few flaws 6 Dec. 2014
By Kiba
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
The game is quite fun once you find a crew..... and play with them together. The handling on the other hand is dreadful.... I play with an X-box 360 controller and spent a good hour finding some decent steering settings and even then, it takes a while to get used to the steering but maybe it is just me. Also the graphics aren't the best for a 2014 game( I am playing on ultra) but I guess something has to give by such a huge game with such an amazing open world. I would give the game 5 stars but the handling is a big issue for me and for a car game, the handling should be, well.... it should you make feel like you are in control of the car and not spin out every time you try to take a corner with a bit more speed. But in the end it delivers what it was made for: Having fun, exploring an open world, drive and compete with other players/friends and obviously buying and customising cars.

Take part in a relentless ride to infiltrate and overtake the 510s, a gang grown around Detroit’s illegal street racing scene. Your plan? Get a rep on the underground-racing scene and sabotage their activities city-by-city all across the United States.

The Crew deserves credit for the frankly staggering size of its open world, and the fact that it’s absolutely filled to the brim with racing, challenges, a fat multiplayer offering, and exploration potential. This scope, however, has resulted in some noticeable visual concessions, the racing itself is too often hamstrung by AI prone to unfair bursts of speed that do nothing but frustrate, and I was surprised at how unwilling the community currently seems to join co-op missions and just how difficult the game’s often miserly winnings makes collecting the cars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Improve your car handling dramatically !! 11 Dec. 2014
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
The Crew is a truly an amazing racing game, a real masterpiece BUT the car handling can be very frustrating sometimes which could in theory ruin your racing experience. More specifically, it is very hard to keep your car under control at higer speeds; the backside of the car starts sliding from left to right and back to left etc.... (= oversteering). It's as if you're driving on ice. I found this to be really annoying (and I am certainly not the only one).

HOWEVER, you can avoid this effect (oversteering) and improve handling of the car dramatically, especially by setting "STEERING SPEED FACTOR" at MAXIMUM.

My settings are :
* All driving help
* Steering sensitivity (relatively low, but you might like a bit higher)
* Steering linearity : MAXIMUM
* Steering speed factor : MAXIMUM
* Deadzone : minimum

After I adjusted my settings to the settings above, the car handling improved dramatically. I find that all cars are handling very well now.
No icy-effect, no constant oversteering and sliding from left to right and back again.

Yes, I will be posting this message a few times on other fora in order to help the gamers because this was clearly one of the main problems.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent wheel and settings your sorted...... 29 Mar. 2015
By Fidiuss
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
When i initially purchased this game and installed it then played it for an hour i thought i had wasted £25......a month later a new Logitech driving force GT wheel and some flapping about with the Logitech profiler settings its become maybe the best open world driving game i have.The only issue about this game and the reason i gave it 4 stars was the handling of the car itself but if you get a decent wheel and set it up correctly this game is a buzz, i have completed all the missions and they have been fun to play and currently doing PVP .I do own an Xbox controller but regardless of opinion a decent driving game will always demand the use of a wheel.with the graphics settings maxed out and a decent wheel this game delivers.I added an image of my Wheel profiler settings for those interested :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Enjoyed it. 13 Jan. 2015
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
This game got harsh reviews and I do not know why, I am having a blast playing this. The missions and story are a little silly but the fun comes from joining your friends and cruising around a very accurate representation of the USA which also contains all of the sites. The graphics are a bit dated however this means that the game is easy to run on PC and the port is also fine. Check this game out if you like to have a game where you can drive around for hours in a stress free world and enjoy all of the beautiful sites.
