After four years of development, The Crew Motorfest is here. While the general release isn’t until 14 September, players who pre-ordered the Gold or Ultimate Editions can start playing right now, with early access starting today.
We’ll be bringing you our full verdict soon. In the meantime, Ubisoft Ivory Tower has released a live-action trailer to celebrate the launch.
Watch The Crew Motorfest live-action trailer
To celebrate the launch, Ubisoft Ivory Tower has released a special live-action trailer for The Crew Motorfest. The slick trailer showcases several cars playable in the game tearing up the streets of O’hau, the game’s vibrant open-world setting. Among the cars shown off in the trailer are the Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica, Porsche Taycan Turbo S, and Nissan Z.
The trailer starts with the trio of cars stuck in a city traffic jam. It then cuts to shots of them burning rubber in the tropical Hawaiian paradise returning to reality, ending with the message: “Life is better in Motorfest.”
While the first two games were set in massive maps recreating the entire US, The Crew Motorfest takes place on the island of O’ahu in Hawaii. This diverse setting offers a plethora of driving experiences, from city streets to volcano slopes and off-road trials.
Incidentally, this is the same location as the original Test Drive Unlimited developed by members of The Crew Motorfest’s Ubisoft Ivory Tower.
After the early access period, The Crew Motorfest launches on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on 14 September. With hundreds of cars, a vibrant open world, and a unique playlist structure, The Crew Motorfest is set to deliver a Forza Horizon-style arcade racing experience PlayStation players in particular have been craving.
