Beta players will be able to compete in both PvE and PVP races and missions, try the new vehicle specs (drag, monster trucks, and drift), and check out the new visual overhaul Ivory Tower has layered across the entire game.
In a predictable turn of events, the developer behind The Crew, Ivory Tower, is now officially a part of Ubisoft, according to a post in the Ubisoft Blog today.
Announced back in 2013, The Crew promised to be a spiritual successor to Test Drive Unlimited and Burnout Paradise, blending fast-paced racing with elements borrowed from massively multiplayer on-line role playing games (MMORPGs). They created a studio in Lyon, France, and convinced Ubisoft to publish their game years ago.
Ubisoft notes that The Crew has racked up more than three million players worldwide since its release.
Ivory Tower’s next project is The Crew Wild Run, which will be out on November 7. By joining Ubisoft, the team at Ivory Tower will continue to benefit from Ubisoft’s infrastructure, support, tools, technology and vision. ‘In return, we will contribute our own expertise to the broader Ubisoft story. It will be released in November 17 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
In line with that, IGN reported Boukhelifa’s team is now working out on the game’s expansion, The Crew: Wild Run.
