Ubisoft has announced that its action-driving MMO has surpassed 12 million registered players. Powered by the Babel Engine, The Crew is an action-driving MMO that propels gamers on a reckless ride through a massive open world version of the United States of America, featuring a number of challenges and diverse terrain – from city to suburb, county to county, state to state, coast to summit.
The Crew was released in 2014 and it took Ubisoft two years and a half in order to reach this milestone. It’s also worth noting that there were some free events – that obviously boosted the game’s registered players – during which PC gamers could download and play the game for a limited time.
The Crew features a persistent online open world is populated by other real players, featuring any other car as a potential rival or ally, and naturally fostering both competition and cooperation among players. As such, players are able to play the entire campaign cooperatively with friends, whether it is to ease their progression, to access better rewards, or simply to have more fun together.
