One of the most anticipated releases of 2014 is Ubisoft’s ambitious MMO racing title,The Crew. Set for release onPS4,Xbox One, and PCin Nov. of this year,The Crewlooks to deliver a unique racing experience unlike anything title before it. Examiner.com recently spoke with Andrew Willans – a senior game designer at Ubisoft Relections – about howThe Crewwill approach online play, how the servers will work, and how the crew system will function in solo play.
Ubisoft wants to make sure all players are engaged with others while racing the USA inThe Crew. Instead of strictly relying on friends to be online,The Crewwill make use of a server bubble type system that will allow for seamless drop-in and drop-out multiplayer. Each player will have a server bubble around them and up to seven other players can join in on your session. This will allow for players to encounter lots of other players and immediately form a crew while playing.
