Game: The Crew

Platform: PC, PS4, XBox One

Publisher: Ubisoft

Release Date: 01/12/2014

The ever-expanding world of The Crew continues to evolve, as Ivory Tower have announced that Stunt Races will be coming to the racing MMO in an upcoming update.

Stunt races will features as part of the Wild Run Expansion's monthly Summit competition exclusive to road and dirt bikes. The aim will be to rack up points performing jumps, 360°s, back and front flips on your bike against the clock using ramps located on the map. There’s no time limit to reach a new ramp, but you can only score points when the timer is on.

No time frame has been given on when we can expect to see stunt races in The Crew, but Ivory Tower says they will be coming "very soon."

Meanwhile, an update was recently released for The Crew Wild Run improving a number of aspects. Freedrive challenges can now be played alone without having to invite other players to join your crew, along with improvements to the "Look For Crew" feature and new options for the photo mode. You can find a full list of patch notes below.

Features

Simplified Look for Crew feature 

  • The “Look for Crew” feature has been simplified. It will now be performing a general search across all game modes, instead of the current one entry per game mode.

Freedrive challenge – Solo mode 

  • On top of inviting their friends and other players, after creating a “Freedrive Challenge” race players will now also be able to launch and play it alone.
