This week's TeamVVV.com news round-up video was an information overload on The Crew, as Ubisoft finally broke the silence surrounding their ambitious open world next generation racer, confirming it will be released this Autumn on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
Alan and I both managed to get a hands-on with The Crew recently, and it's safe to say we're suitably impressed by what we saw. Alan's got everything covered in his preview event video, while I've been busy compiling a comprehensive hands-on report which will be posted on the site soon. While that's in progress, I posted a few snippets from the report detailing some of key aspects and most interesting tibits I learnt during my hands-on, such as how The Crew's humungous map dwarfs all other open world driving games and why its RPG elements make The Crew the Pokemon of car games.
Elsewhere, after a raft of recycled car DLC packs, Forza 5 was bestowed with a free track add-on in the form of the Long Beach circuit which was most welcome considering Forza 5's distinct lack of tracks compared to Forza 4.
More DriveClub developments surfaced, as Dell claimed the yet-to-be-announced release date for the PS4's racer missing in action as June 15th, conveniently right after E3.
All this and more can be found in this week's TeamVVV.com video news round-up we've got embedded for you below. As always, links to all articles discussed in the video can also be found below.
