Ubisoft showed off the new downloadable content (DLC) for its open world driving game, The Crew. In this case, your job is to try to get away from the cops or to try to catch the bad guys.
If you’re the cops, you have to pull close behind the bad guys and stay there for seven seconds. If you do that, you complete the arrest. You can call in a helicopter to help you, but you have to watch out for flash bangs dropped by the criminals. If you fall too far behind, you can hit a reset button that puts you reasonably close to your target so you can keep trying.
Your job as the bad guy is to pick up a stash and deliver it without getting caught. A blue line tells you the path where you have to go, but you can choose any way you want to get there. You can also use a nitro boost to pull away from the cops who are closing in. There’s a lot of opportunities for multiplayer chases, as multiple players can play on both sides.
Here are a few hands-on gameplay sessions where I managed to completely fail at the task at hand. The game is coming this fall on the PC and the consoles. The date isn’t set yet.
