Ubisoft Reveals Details on The Crew’s June Update

Developers Ivory Tower and Ubisoft Reflections have announced today full details on the June update coming to the open-world racing title The Crew.

The Crew’s June update, as was the case with the April patch, will introduce new features, improving the UI, addressing bugs and tweaking the controls of specific cars.

The June update will be deployed on June 3 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.

The Crew, which was released in December 2014, received a three out of five from Hardcore Gamer, with our review emphasising that “It’s not a bad game, as there’s a lot to like in this package, but there’s also a fair amount holding it back.”
