The Crew Is an Open World Driving MMO Worth Waiting For - Hands On

Worth the wait? Sounds like a good plan. I'll wait until they ditch UPlay.

Implying Uplay will ever go away.

Well, The Crew is an MMO. That means it will have its own launcher with its own login screen. There's no reason for UbiSoft to slap UPlay on top of that. It's a waste of resources.

But, like you said, I've no doubt that's exactly what UbiSoft is going to do for the PC version of this. So, I will continue to wait. Forever, if necessary. I'm in no hurry. :)

I think, if I get The Crew, (I might not get it right away, depends on finances) then the first thing I'm gonna want to do is test the map size by driving from New York to San Francisco or vice versa, depends on which is closer to where you start,(assuming the whole map is driveable from the get go of course.) Regardless, it's something I'll wanna do at some point. Like Need For Speed The Run only, better.

I actually liked TDU and TDU2, So I'm looking forward to this. I mean, don't buy it at launch, because we ought to have learned from our mistakes in that department... But when it gets fixed up, I'll buy it. Not too sure about "All of America" Being in it, though. There's gonna be a lot of compromises in that department... I don't mind, though. Just hope this all turns out well.

Defineately not for me, i always thought that Open World was terrible for driving games because to me, the fun part of playing a driving game is learnng the different stages. Making it open world just defeats the purpose and turns most of the stages bland. But maybe it will make more sense when combined with an mmo.

I never bought either because Atari decided to put SecuROM in them.

Granted, UPlay probably isn't going to kill your system like SecuROM can, but enough is enough.

I played both on console. DRM? Sorted.

Ew. Console.

Are the TDU2 servers still running for X-Box?

All those road trippers from just cause 2 MP will have a great time

Couldn't tell ya. Haven't played in ages. That said, TDU1 Servers were up many a year after that game stopped being popular. So, possibly.
