Ubisoft has provided us with a key for the closed beta phase of The Crew, and since there is no NDA this time around, you can view below five minutes of… well… crazy driving. Performance wise, the beta ran with constant 60fps at 1080p with Ultra settings (though we had to reduce AA as there were performance drops while recording our footage). Apart from two freezes, we are quite happy with what Ubisoft has in store for us. Thankfully, The Crew is not plagued by those ridiculous optimization issues we encountered in Watch_Dogs. It’s still early to give a verdict, but so far this looks like a polished PC version (support for wheels, proper keyboard indications, scaling on multi-core CPUs, GPU-bound with great SLI scaling). Enjoy!
