It’s been the best part of a decade since Ubisoft first delivered The Crew to players. They then followed up with the sequel in 2018 . But today it’s about going all-in and embracing the car culture of The Crew Motorfest. Start your engines – this is going to be a wild ride.
Honestly, we love The Crew. Admittedly it never managed to reach the heady heights of a Forza Horizon. But for dipping in and out at will, it was more than capable of doing the job. With The Crew Motorfest, we’re expecting Ubisoft to have taken everything that learnt from The Crew 2 before stepping on the gas and moving up through the gears.
Available right now for players to get involved with, The Crew Motorfest whisks us off to the island of O’ahu, Hawaii.
It’s here where we get to embrace pretty much all the intricacies of car culture. Jumping behind the wheel of numerous vehicles and having fun. The intensity of race wins will be thrust upon us. Whilst the collection of some of the most iconic of cars will be front and centre.
For others it’ll be the chance to explore. Jumping off the tarmac and hitting the off-road scene should allow you to do whatever, and go wherever, you want in The Crew Motorfest. Only then will all your skills be known.
We’re hyped for The Crew Motorfest. We hope it fulfils the desires of an open world racer like Forza Horizon 5 has done for the last few years. With the rebooted Forza Motorsport preparing the drivers for on-track action, there certainly feels like there’s a void to fill. The Crew Motorfest should well be able to do that.
