The Crew takes you and your friends on a reckless ride inside an open-world re-creation of the U.S. With a lot of content and tailored for the connected generation, The Crew redefines action-driving.

Participate in a ride to infiltrate and overtake the 510s, a gang involving Detroit's illegal street racers. Your plan is to race underground to build a reputation and then sabotage their activities across the U.S. Maneuver through New York City and Los Angeles, cruise down Miami Beach or trek through the plateaus of Monument Valley. Each location has a set of surprises and driving challenges. On your journey, encounter other players on the road, who can be worthy companions or future rivals.

During the Ubisoft press conference at E3, Creative Director Julian Gerighty put focus on the dynamic community of players eagerly anticipating the game. He revealed that fans will have the opportunity to take part in the late stages of the game's development starting July 23. A limited number of players will be able to join the development team to play in a closed beta version of The Crew and provide feedback on their experience. Further details on the upcoming beta stages will be communicated at a later date.

Recently some players have had a chance to play The Crew at selected gaming centers in Copenhagen, Dubai, New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Montreal and Sao Paulo. Players were invited to form their crews in order to take part in the Explore and Customize contest. They experienced and praised the huge scope of the game and the RPG mechanics behind the customization of the cars.

Players also had the opportunity to participate in "Route 909," an online competition among the gaming centers based on PvP crew versus crew. The best crews around the world will compete in the final Crew battle to be live streamed on The Crew's official Twitch channel (thecrewgame) from Ubisoft headquarters in Paris on June 10th and 11th.

Key Features:

  • Never Drive Alone: Build your crew of four through bonding or intense rivalry.
  • Unprecendented Scope and Variety: The entire U.S. is your driving playground. Every type of terrain available is yours to master, from downtown streets and race tracks to cornfields, canyons and desert dunes.
  • The Experience Continues: Continue the experience on iOS, Android devices, and on the web to tinker with your ride or send your crew on jobs to gain more XP and parts.
  • Prepare for the Next Job: A tuning system allows you to collect parts and customize licensed cars.
