Change Is Good In The Crew Customisation Trailer

Have you spent the GDP of a small nation on DotA 2 cosmetics? Are you one of those fussy people that specifically asks for no olives on their lovingly baked pizza? You sound like a person who can't get enough of fiddling with things, which is lucky because Ubisoft has released a new customisation trailer for The Crew, showcasing how you can tweak your axle ratios and pimp your ride.

Any serious petrol-head knows you can’t go anywhere in your motor without spending hours obsessing over differentials and whatnot, and Ubisoft looks to be introducing all sorts of customisation options in its open-world RPG racer. In order to appease those of us who faint at the sight of a tyre change though, Ubisoft has opted to dress up the customisation trailer in high-octane pedal-to-the-metal racing.

The whole thing's a little cryptic, we don't actually get a behind-the-scenes look at how all this tinkering actually works, but we do get a looksee at its intended effects on the track. It looks like you'll be able to change your car in order to best match the terrain type your racing on, from street specs, to off-road, and the bruising Raid spec.

The Crew finishes off a hectic last quarter of the year of racing games, arriving on 2nd December worldwide following a two week delay, for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. Could The Crew be the racing game to end all racing games? Or do you prefer your racing experiences more focused? Head on down to the start line below and let us know!

I would really like to see an old school muscle car to be able to compete against lambos and all these. Being able to tune a 70s car so that it can compete modern supercars will be an awesome feature since i haven't seen such thing in ages!

I agree visuals aren't stunning, but combination of handling, crash physics and overall possibility to drive almost anywhere makes it epic game every arcade-racing-gamer should have in his collection :)
yet the game can be enhanced with gorgeous ENB set which makes the game look nice

So, a car without any tuning and without making it ugly is useless? :/ I expected something similar to Test Drive Unlimited, not Need For Speed World.


Why Ubi?

I do :)
and if you want explanation why not, then it's simple: everybody goes crazy about visuals because mob love eyecandy - that means that more workflow time is needed for visuals creation which obviously costs more money, also marketing crap with all the fancy trailers, conference streams and such costs a lot of money, overall business management plan is way more complex and managers obviously ask for good money - as a result there is very limited budget for everything else - story, controls, bugtesting, optimization everything is pushed at last place and usually there isn't even time to do so - that's why we see relatively cool-looking games which crash and so require GBs of patches, often get delayed release, don't offer any gameplay value and no meaningful story :P
