The Crew 2 - Planes, boats, and automobiles


#1

We’re getting some nifty previews of The Crew 2, the sequel to Ubisoft’s open-world driver. This time, you can switch seamlessly between a car to a plan to a boat with the push of a button.

That’s cool.


#2

Holy crap, that looks great.


#3

Ubi get a lot of criticism for reskinning earlier work, but I think they’re pretty inventive.


#4

It’s funny, I love Crew, and they keep saying that they “listen to feedback” and did boats and planes because people were asking for it so much, but never in years of visiting Crew subreddit have I seen anyone posting about wanting boats and planes.
What I wanted is a new continent (europe or japan) and better physics, so the first announcement was really disappointing.

But seeing the videos, while I am still not very interested in planes and boats, I do like how much better the game and the US in it looks, so I will probably get it again anyway. Still, here is hoping they go elsewhere in the next game.

“Agents of… Race-hem?” I got nothing.


#6

I’m hoping for a more robust physics engine in this one, plus it’d be nice if it got much, much prettier. I like the idea of Crew, but I didn’t like playing it or looking at it.


#7

Interview frond GamesCom. Looks cool. I hope there is a demo/beta to try since the physics was one of the Hingis I didn’t like about the first game.

It’s definitely looking a lot prettier than the first though.


#8

Delayed to the “first half of of our next fiscal year” which starts on April 2018 for Ubisoft.


#9

It’s almost like they want to get bought out by Vivendi. Both this and Far Cry delayed, and an unannounced game pushed into the next financial year. That’s gotta hurt their revenue projections.
