It has been an exciting day if you’re into open world games! Today at E3 during Ubisoft’s press conference, the game publisher revealed a cinematic trailer as well as a game play video of The Crew 2.
Now I will have to say after seeing this, it definitely had me surprised. For starters, the game is back in the United States just like the original one was, but it looks like they’ve modified it more for what they intend to do in the sequel.
As the developers first hinted at when they revealed that The Crew 2 is in development, there is going to be a lot more emphasis on off road racing and exploring and after seeing the game play video, we get to see exactly what they mean.
We are not going to be just confined to racing cars, the developers are now including planes to fly in as well as different types of water craft.
The graphics also look much more detailed than what they were in the first game. The water looks absolutely amazing and the off road scenery looks so life like and green. They seem to be really going all out for the sequel.
In the video, you also see that the street races are going to be a little more interesting as they are no longer just relegated to the streets and highways. There are going to be ramps as well as some rooftop racing so it should make for a much more enhanced racing experience than what came before.
I’m also going to mention now that I purchased a PS4 Pro this weekend so I can’t wait to see how it will look graphically on my 4K television. Ubisoft has released trailers for a number of other games as well and a new Assassins Creed game is coming too.
I imagine some of the bigger gaming sites will have interviews with the game developer of The Crew 2 so you’ll definitely want to stay tuned for that. I’m hoping that they’ll reveal even more details about the game.
One thing that hasn’t been mentioned is the customization of cars in this new sequel so that is something I hope will be revealed very soon.
Something I mentioned earlier is that The Crew 2 will still be in the US and I’m very curious to see how much it will be changed from the original. I know that New York and San Francisco are in the game, but what of the other places?
Are the exact same cities from the first game going to be in there or are they leaving some of the original cities, but adding new ones? I personally would like to see other cities in the game that weren’t there before. Houston, Boston, Philadelphia, Denver, and Atlanta just to name a few.
It does look like though that NYC is bigger than before especially considering that the waterways of the city will now be used for racing.
In the meantime, check out the video below of the cinematic trailer as well as some video of actual game play and share your thoughts of what you think. I will post more info about The Crew 2 as soon as it’s released.
