    Gear head

    Sony’s systems have become notorious for their lack of legitimately great arcade racers, but The Crew Motorfest could be about to plug the gap.

  • News The Crew 2 Cleans Up 60fps Resolution on PS5 in New Patch

    Vaseline filter removed

    There was much excitement for The Crew 2’s long-in-development 60fps update for PS5, but the results fell significantly short of expectations. While the game was stable in Performance Mode on Sony’s new-gen system, the resolution dipped to PS3 era numbers, resulting in some disappointingly washed-out visuals. That’s...

  • News The Crew 2's Scruffy 60fps PS5 Update Will Improve

    Up to speed

    The Crew 2’s anticipated 60 frames-per-second update for PS5 turned out to be a bit of a disappointment.

Fortunately, Ubisoft has acknowledged the issue and has committed to improvements...

  • Hands On The Crew 2's PS5 Patch Feels Better at 60fps, But There's a Catch

    It's stinging our eyes

    The Crew 2, due in part to outstanding ongoing support from publisher Ubisoft and developer Ivory Tower, remains relevant four years on from its original release. In fact, you could argue the game is getting better, with the latest season adding events inspired by Formula Drift World Champion Chris Forsberg – it’s...

  • News The Crew 2 Finally Burns Rubber at 60fps on PS5 This July

    Gotta go fast

    When it comes to arcade racing games, the PS5 is in seriously short supply. Thank the car gods that The Crew 2 continues to get updated, then – with a 60 frames-per-second patch speeding to Sony’s new-gen console on 6th July. French developer Ivory Tower has remained committed to this title for four years now, and it’s still...

  • News The Crew 2 Goes Crazy Taxi in The Contractor Season

    Free to play this weekend

    Yes, there’s a much better open world racer on the market right now, but for PlayStation players, sadly, The Crew 2 is the best it gets.

  • News The Crew 2 Keeps on Rolling with Ongoing Support

    Crew cut

    Say what you will about Ubisoft, but it keeps its games alive for a very long time.

  • Hands On The Crew 2 PS4 Beta Is Big, Barren, and Boring

    Sail away

    After spending several hours behind the wheel of The Crew 2's open beta, one warning light kept flashing up on the dashboard: it's too big. The map, a truncated version of the entire United States, is enormous - impressively so - but it's dull as dishwater. One of the major changes to this sequel is the addition of planes and boats, and...

  • Reminder The Crew 2 Open Beta Begins Today on PS4

    Start your engines

    Start your engines

    The Crew 2 got a brand new trailer at Ubisoft's E3 2018 press conference, which you can see above. It's looking pretty decent ahead of its 26th June release date, but the big news is that an open beta will be taking place a little later this month on PS4. The beta will allow you to play the game between the 21st and the 25th...

  • News Here's 12 Crazy Minutes of Footage for The Crew 2


    The Crew 2 is shaping up to be far bigger and better than the 2014 original, and one of the biggest factors behind that is the ability to switch between your chosen method of transport at any moment. Just take a look at how utterly bonkers this looks in practice in the video above as a car turns into a plane before your eyes, and then...

    Surf and turf

    The Crew 2’s multi-discipline campaign will speed to the PlayStation 4 from 29th June, publisher Ubisoft has confirmed.

  • News Sony Granting Refunds to The Crew 2 PS4 Pre-Orders Following Delay

    Emergency brake

    According to a report on Kotaku today, Sony will be refunding all PlayStation Store pre-orders of Ubisoft's open-world racer sequel, The Crew 2. This comes as a result of last month's news that several of the publisher's games were being pushed back. The Crew 2 was initially marked for release in March, but was delayed until the

    Air, land, and sea

    The Crew 2 will start its engine on 16th March, publisher Ubisoft has announced. Revealed at E3 2017, the racing game takes the open world format of its predecessor – and adds boats, bikes, and planes into the equation.

  • E3 2017 This Is How The Crew 2's Motorsport Triathlons Work

    One way or another

    One of the more bemusing announcements of E3 2017: The Crew 2 has boats now – and planes. As strong believers that Jet Moto deserves a reboot, this actually interests us – but how the feck does it all work? Simple, really – it adopts a triathlon format, flinging you from one discipline to the next in an attempt to hold...

  • News Ubisoft Sequel The Crew 2 Buckles Up on PS4

    You know as much as we do

    To coincide with Ubisoft’s financial call, the French publisher has dropped the most anticlimactic announcements on its forums. Hand-in-hand with Far Cry 5 – it’s using a nice font, that one – the company has confirmed that The Crew 2 is set to release at some point before 31st March, 2018. So, there’s that...

  • Gamescom 2015 Ubisoft's Still Trying to Flog The Crew

    Publisher overhauling PS4 racer's visuals

    We weren't all that enamoured with The Crew when it released on the PlayStation 4 last year, but kudos to Ubisoft, it's not pumping the brakes on the brand just yet. In fact, upcoming expansion Wild Ride is more than just your average DLC pack – it's going to launch alongside a brand new graphics engine...

    Thank you for driving dangerously

    If you’ve ever fancied taking a coast-to-coast road trip across America, then you were probably excited by the announcement that Ubisoft's latest driving game The Crew was offering the chance to do just that. Even with its abbreviated version of the USA, the scale of its game world, coupled with the chance to tear...

  • Video How's the Latest Beta for The Crew Faring on PS4?

    Rocky road

    Words are overrated. We were going to pen a big lengthy article on The Crew’s most recent PlayStation 4 beta, but that takes time to both write and read. Instead, we figured that we’d show you how we’re getting on with Ubisoft’s latest racer. As you can see, things are going just great. [ Subscribe to our YouTube channel for...

  • News Do You Want to Play The Crew on PS4 Prior to Launch?

    Beta sign up quick

  • News PS4 Racer The Crew Is Going to Drive Away with Your Wallet

    Money sink

    Ubisoft’s intriguing open world racer The Crew has always sounded ambitious, but we never expected its lofty aims to expand to its monetisation model as well.
