The Crew 2 Launches

Steam News announces that The Crew 2 is now available for Windows on Steam, offering Ubisoft's motorsports game set in an open-world depiction of the U.S.A. There was an issue activating the game at first, but this has been cleared up. The recently released launch trailer offers a look at the game, and the announcement hopes to drive interest: "The newest iteration in the revolutionary franchise, The Crewģ 2 captures the thrill of the American motorsports spirit in one of the most exhilarating open worlds ever created. Welcome to Motornation, a huge, varied, action-packed, and beautiful playground built for motorsports throughout the entire US of A. Enjoy unrestrained exploration on ground, sea, and sky. From coast to coast, street and pro racers, off-road explorers, and freestylers gather and compete in all kinds of disciplines. Join them in high-octane contests and share every glorious moment with the world." Reviews for the game are starting to appear, but for now the list seems rather small:

I was amused that Polygonís review at one point just says play Forza Horizon 3 instead.

Edit: And PC Gamer's.

For racing fans:

Porsche outdid it's previous 1980s record on NŁrburgring by over 50 seconds. Dash footage with digital readouts.

Saw that earlier today. I literally alternated between laughing out loud and going WTF... AAAAAHHH throughout the whole thing. The speed is insane. It's like playing a racing game and using a X2 speed cheat.

I watch a lot of production cars do laps around the Ring, and the speed difference between those and the Porsche is just absurd. Few of them make 200mph at the end of the straight, and he did it at parts of the circuit where it should just be fucking IMPOSSIBLE to go 200mph!

No point playing with friends, if you get into first place the AI enables cheats and sticks to you like glue.

No story, just lame social media bs.


Meh

Anno is still the only game I've given money to these clowns for.

We are not the target demographic.

For most games we aren't. But yeah, few are as blatant as this one.

- Worse map than before
- Still overly arcadey physics
- Even worse rubber banding.

Welp, there goes my interest.

GTA Online has this stuff figured out, so why doesnít an online-focused driving game that costs $60? Ubisoft says a December update will add PvP, but itís bewildering that they didnít launch the game with such basic multiplayer functionality.

DECEMBER! It's fucking JUNE, Ubisoft! "Hey, don't worry, we'll sort of make this into an actual game in six months or so."

Fuck these assholes.


ANother Ubisoft game (The Division) opens on one of my systems as a background process, and I can't play it. Other folks are having a similar problem. Ubi post-sales support have not been great, and it's clear their testing QA is awful.

I won't be buying any more of their games, period.

Actually had a 5 day spanning spat with Ubi Support over this issue in The Crew, their answer? Buy the expansion or bust. Same for the Division (I got both games for "free" from that free.. thing.. they had)

I will buy a Ubisoft game, only 1 (Anno 1800) but yeah...

I heard that the game is pretty boring, its really all about buying new cars and even that doesn't keep the interest levels up.

Well, the first one was kind of about that too, but at least the map was awesome, and it was fun to drive these cars around in the map. But for whatever reason they made the map LESS interesting this time around because they put fewer things to discover in it. WTF? How do you not double down on the most awesome thing from the first game??

Played the beta and yes it's awful for all kinds of reasons. Least of which is not the whole Dudebro chasing social media dollars angle. Ugh, it made me throw up in my mouth a little. We are not the target demographic.
