Backlash to The Crew 30 FPS Confirmation Leaves Ubi Scrambling for 60 FPS on PC
Back when I took a look at the first closed beta for The Crew, I noted that the framerate was locked to 30 FPS on PC but I figured that it would make 60 frames per second by the time we get to the game’s full release in November. Of course, I would be wrong. An Ubisoft representative confirmed that The Crew will be released at 30 FPS only for that same rep to quickly backtrack and say they’re aiming for 60 FPS.
The Crew Beta Impressions: No Cars Go
As part of Ubisoft’s ongoing corporate strategy to introduce new franchises in new genres, they’ve decided to take on Need for Speed with their take on the street racing genre with The Crew. While it seems to borrow elements from the Need for Speed franchise, the emphasis on story missions, car customization and co-op play sets it apart from the only rival in the arcade street racing game genre.
Having spent a few days with the closed beta and a few years with Need for Speed games, can Ubisoft’s offering compete with EA’s resident racing series?
