Ivory Tower's open-world 'carpg' The Crew is set to benefit from a major patch which will go live on April 22. The patch includes a new 'Raid Car Pack' which consists of the following three cars:
- Cadillac Escalade 2012 (available in: Full stock/Street/Perf/Dirt/Raid/Circuit specs)
- McLaren F1 (available in: Full stock/Perf specs)
- Volkswagen Touareg NF 2011 (available in: Full stock/Dirt/Raid specs)
Other additions include four new faction missions, new specs added to seven existing cars, and new chrome colours and lacquered interior customisation options. Perhaps best of all it will now be possible to hide player names and cop car tags when in free ride mode, I can almost hear video editors wide-world rejoicing.

Fixed an issue where some Faction Missions didn’t display the proper duration.
Example: the Faction Mission “The Fugitive” that was considered as a long mission (over an hour) has been changed to a medium mission (10-60 min), accordingly it has had its reward rescaled to the new duration.
