Today at Ubisoft’s E3 2014 press conference, we announced the thing you’ve all been waiting for: the release date for The Crew. The next-gen racing MMO will be powersliding onto the PS4, Xbox One and PC on November 11. Put a crew together and tour the USA, taking on missions, completing Skills and building your perfect car in each of the five classes.
But wait, there’s more! Also during the press conference, The Crew’s Creative Director Julian Gerighty revealed players will be able to take part in a limited closed beta starting on July 23. You will be able to join the development team in the final stages of development and offer your feedback. We will have more details as they arise, so keep an eye on the UbiBlog.
In addition, the conclusion to “Route 909” takes place soon. The competitors have been forming their crews and taking part in various challenges in gaming centers around the world. Watch the final showdown on June 12 as it is streamed live from the E3 Uplay Lounge located at the Standard Hotel in Los Angeles.

I WAS excited about this game until Ubisoft announced it would feature microtransactions. Prior to that announcement I was planning this to be a day one purchase. Now it's a gamefly rental at best. Microtransactions at best are a nuiscence and at worst ruin the game. Never have I seen an example of microtransactions actually improving the game.
