I’m motherloving this game. It is pretty much TDU3, with an eye-rolling crime/racer/whatever plot weaved in to gate your progress. So I bought the season pass just to say to Ivory Tower that I love their work!
Honestly new cars aren’t necessary. You level up your starter car and it is pretty adequate. You probably just need a performance car because the starter is shite, and you can redeem one very cheaply with U credit.
The performance however is a bit wonky. I have issues with 60fps. My RX480 is perfectly able to handle 1080p ultra, but every now and then there is this stutter. Bump it down to 720p it is less noticeable but still there. But as soon as I lock it at 30fps it is smooth. Other people on the interweb have this problem so it is not just me.
I don’t have a wheel, only a gamepad because I’m not not hardcore into racing games, but I configured the pad so that acceleration/brake is not just 1 or 0 like the default gamepad config, I can gently accelerate or brake (using right stick up to accelerate, right stick down to brake). After some workaround it is ok, it is not a wheel but I can accelerate/brake with finesse.
As to The Crew 2… I can wait for a GOTY edition. I was just now playing Witcher 3 GOTY. That little Triss/Yennefer/Geralt love triangle can wait. And I still got a yuuuuge backlog.
