We were rather fond of The Crew. Yes it wasn’t as good as Forza Horizon 2 but it did bring something a little different to the racing genre. And thankfully Ubisoft haven’t given up on it as the latest patch has now been detailed.
Coming to Xbox One and Xbox 360 on the 12th Feb, the latest patch for The Crew aims to fix a few issues that still afflict the game. It will however also bring some new content, namely a new PvP mode with 10 new tracks and some new faction missions added into the bargain.
If you haven’t yet checked out The Crew, then you really should give it a go. It’s available now for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4 and PC. Our review is right here.
