During the French publisher’s E3 press conference, Ubisoft announced that its upcoming open-world racer The Crew will release on November 11th, 2014.
Touting a world map that blankets the entirety of North America, The Crew is essentially a MMO title where your car is the character. In fact, Ubisoft teased that it takes approximately twenty hours to drive from coast to coast within the game’s always-online, persistent universe.
As the latest trailer attests, the studio’s high-octane racer encompasses a plethora of in-game environment, with locales as varied as the arid Monument Valley and gritty, urban alleyways of Miami, Florida. And although this you can always hear your console of choice groaning at those processing demands, Ubisoft has assured fans that The Crew will have absolutely zero load screens.
However, in order to whet the appetites of fans, the studio has announced plans to hold a multiplayer beta for the game beginning July 23rd. At this time, players can apply for the limited bout of testing through Ubisoft’s official webpage, though it’s understood places are limited.
Much like other titles in the company’s catalogue such as Watch Dogs and post-apocalyptic shooter, The Division, The Crew received a lengthy delay at the tail end of 2014 to further refine and polish the in-game mechanics ahead of its eagerly anticipated debut.
Ubisoft’s bold, cross-country racer will debut on November 11th, 2014 for Xbox One.
