Destiny hasn't been the only beta to emerge this week, Ubisoft also launched their closed beta for The Crew.

I'd tell you all about it if I could, but unfortunately, The Crew's beta is riddled with bugs and crashes, and after completing the first mission or two, I was met with a black, frozen screen of death that the game now constantly loads into.

Joy.

We do, however, have the opening scenes of The Crew captured for your perusal, mind, and you can laugh as I attempt to deal with the game's somewhat arcadey handling and crash into a barn.

The Crew Hands-On Preview | Audacious Next-Gen Racer Should Be Worth The Wait

Platforms: PC | PS4 | Xbox One

Developer: Ubisoft | Ivory Tower

Publisher: Ubisoft

Imagine an adventure playground designed to superficially resemble the United States. It's the same shape and the major cities are in the right place, but everything is larger than life. A playground is supposed to be played with and romped over rather than sticking to scale, so buildings are bigger, colours are more vibrant, distances between cities have been compressed and the whole thing is generally much more fun than it is in reality.

Now imagine that this playground is 5000km² and created for cars rather than people.

This is The Crew, Ubisoft's ambitious next-gen racer that promises to blur the lines between singleplayer and multiplayer while delivering a healthy dose of unapologetic drift-heavy fun factor. Though it has sadly been pushed back into the deepest recesses of late 2014/early 2015, we recently got to grips with a demo and found The Crew to be an audacious attempt to push boundaries in the racing genre.
