Ubisoft officially announced during their E3 conference that The Crew would be returning for a second run. Ivory Tower have built on the first game and looks to take their open world driving experience to new heights, with a number of new vehicles to operate. Race the back streets of New York City, powerboat your way through the Louisiana Swamps or soar across the California sunset, all are possible, whether by yourself or with friends online. History has shown that Ubisoft’s first title within a franchise is usually the stepping stone for greater things, so it will be interesting to see what improving Ivory Tower makes and whether it will cement itself alongside other great open world driving games.
“FEATURES: WELCOME TO MOTORNATION – TAKE THE CHALLENGE TO THE GROUND, SEA, AND SKY Push boundaries and take on new experiences in iconic locations. Fly and spin through fog and clouds above the snowcapped Rocky Mountains, burn rubber in the backstreets of New York City, sweep through the Mississippi River, and explore every inch of the Grand Canyon. Driving your dream hypercar, riding some of the most iconic American bikes, and taking control of the swiftest aerobatic planes and powerboats: opportunities for fun and challenges are limitless in a fully redesigned USA.
