The latest release from The Crew just dropped with 80 new vehicles! Get a look at the graphics and a list of all the brands available in Motorfest.
The Crew: Motorfest is out. The latest motor vehicle video game launched on September 14 and it’s bringing a whole new feel to the franchise. The Crew started as an online-only racing game in 2014. Just a year later, The Crew: Wild Run was released. Next up was The Crew: Calling All Units in 2016. The Crew 2 hit networks in June 2018.
Now, The Crew: Motorfest joins the group. It may not have a spot on our list of The Best Car Video Games of All Time just yet, but the entire series is gaining a following. Not only is there a wide variety of vehicles and challenges, but the graphics really are incredible, especially in 4K! Take a look at some of the details that come along with the latest game in The Crew series.
Sequels usually bring updates and this one is no exception. The Crew: Motorfest is set on the island of O’ahu, Hawaii. The previous versions were set in the contiguous United States. You can explore the island on your own or join other players. O’ahu is a great choice because it offers a variety of courses. There are high-speed street races, rain forest explorations, off-roading courses, or the availability to just cruise the beaches.
Motorfest also introduces several playlists, a series of short thematic campaigns. Each one offers different car culture experiences, whether it’s themed events, tailored races, or other challenges. 15 different playlists will be available for launch, including a Made in Japan playlist and a Vintage Garage playlist. There’s also a playlist dedicated to the Porsche 911 legacy. Conquering these unique situations will unlock rewards. There are live events that allow drivers to showcase their skills, too.
Plus, a new feature is the car collection import feature that allows gamers to hold onto every vehicle purchased in The Crew 2. They can then be used in Motorfest. When you start the game for the first time, you’ll be asked if you want to start from scratch or if you want to import all your vehicles and vanities. Once you import, the action can’t be undone, but you can think on it and decide to import later.
Vintage classics, electric supercars, track-dominating racers. They’re all here with more to come as the game progresses. Carmakers currently featured in the game include (get ready, it’s a long list): BMW, Bugatti, Chevrolet, Dodge, Ducati, Ferrari, Ford, GMC, Harley-Davidson, Honda, Hummer, Jaguar, Jeep, Kawasaki, Koenigsegg, Lamborghini, Land Rover, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, McLaren, MINI, Nissan, Peugeot, Pontiac, Porsche, Ram, Suzuki, Toyota, Volkswagen, and Yamaha.
Drift cars, race cars, rally cars, lifted trucks, a Suzuki GSX bike, a Pagani plane, and a Lamborghini boat. Even a Volkswagen van. There are pretty much endless types of vehicles to select for open-world racing fun. There are literally hundreds of cars that can be used in this game. Over 600 vehicles are playable in Motorfest. 80 of them are going to be brand new for the game. Now some cars are only available if they are imported from The Crew 2. Some can be purchased. Others can only be unlocked by completing those aforementioned playlists.
Developed by Ubisoft, The Crew: Motorfest is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. There are a few different tiers for the game. First, there’s $70 for the Standard Edition. Then there’s the digital-only $100 for Gold Edition and $120 for Ultimate Edition. The Gold Edition provides a ”Year One Pass,” which gives players instant access to the 2023 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody, the 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS, and the 2021 BMW M4 Competition Coupe.
Another benefit of the Gold Edition is access to 20 other DLC cars that are released throughout the year. The Ultimate Edition also includes the year-long pass along with immediate access to the 2021 Honda Civic Type R FITTED Edition and the 2021 Porsche 718 Spyder FITTED Edition. Drivers can also access under glows and rims with the Ultimate Edition. You can buy some cars, so that will add to the price. However, any cars you previously purchased can be imported free of charge.
The Crew: Motorfest is definitely an open-world racing game worth checking out! Did we mention the tracklist? Everything from Blondie to The Black Keys to Tujamo is included with over 150 artists! There should be plenty of choices to help set the mood for whatever you’re doing in Motorfest.
