Platform: PC, PS4, XBox One

The Crew has just gotten its most recent update bringing with it a host of improvements and tweaks.

Some balancing of abilities has been made which now allow brighter and longer flash bangs for street racers, an increase in cool down value (from 30 seconds to 40) and reduction of handling effects with the EMP dart for both street racers and cops. The street racers unlimited nitro ability now has a reduced cool down time from 30 seconds down to just 20.

The Chase matchmaking has also seen some changes which now lessen the chance of unbalanced chases which could see one cop go up against three or more street racers.

Police AI bahaviour changes now enable the police to be more aggressive as the chase goes on. Also the police AI will now be less aggressive for players who have a low car level vehicle, and consequently more aggressive for those with a higher car level.

Elsewhere, the McLaren 12C GT3 is now added to the police lineup and the bounty will go up and down as you win and lose chases. Finally, two new leagues have been introduced for police and street racers and are divided into 4 categories. Players can now climb the divisions starting from the 4th and aiming for the 1st.
