Ubisoft's just-announced The Crew is an ambitious, impressive-looking game. A Need for Speed-like street racing game with a ton of singleplayer and multiplayer options, set on a ridiculously massive map that spans from Los Angeles to New York City. But if you want to play it, you're going to need an internet connection.
Yesterday at a pre-E3 press event, I had a chance to watch a demonstration of the game—due out in 2014—and spend some time playing a PC build. I was impressed—the racing doesn't have that same thrilling sense of velocity that Criterion's games (most recently Need for Speed: Most Wanted) manage to capture, but I really do like the idea.
