Those with early access can hop on sooner.
Ivory Tower’s The Crew will be releasing on December 2nd but servers will go live a day earlier on December 1st at 11:01 AM GMT.
Much like Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, those with early access will be able to try the game out before its official release thus circumventing much of the crowd. Of course, this being an MMO, you’ll see the most activity on launch day. The most issues usually pop up then as well so we’ll find out how things work when The Crew is live worldwide.
The Crew is a persistent online racing title which allows players to explore the length and breadth of the United States, completing various missions and races in the process. Don’t expect to see any reviews of the game before launch as Ubisoft won’t be handing out review copies (due to the very nature of the MMO genre), but impressions and opinions will be allowed as soon as the game goes live at retail on December 2nd.
