The Crew Calling All Units

On the eve of release, Ubisoft has outlined the content included in The Crew‘s second paid expansion, Calling All Units.

Available digitally for $25 — a price that also nets you the racer’s first DLC, Wild Run — Calling All Units heralds new story missions, additional gameplay features, and a hoard of new vehicles begging to be taken out for a spin. When it comes to the all-new police experience, tomorrow’s add-on will introduce budding racers to Clara Washington, a “police driver who needs to arrest a rising gang of Street Racers: the Harvesters.”

Here’s an overview of the main gameplay elements to feature in Calling All Units:

  • Crates – New gameplay in Freedrive. As a Street racer, players can see and pick up crates in the world. Once a crate is collected, the player will be chased by the police. By delivering crates, players will be able to win car fragments, and these fragments will allow them to unlock new vehicles.
  • New prologue missions – They introduce the police gameplay, through the eyes of a new character, Clara Washington. Players will be able to learn the new gameplay mechanics from The Crew Calling All Units add-on.
  • Player level increased to 60 – All players will benefit from a new progression system allowing them to reach level 60. Through any activities in the game, players will earn new parts to improve their vehicles through the smart loot system.
  • Bounty – The crates gameplay will introduce players to the Bounty system. The Bounty value reflects the individual skill of a player as a Cop, or as a Street Racer. This Bounty value is also used to determine the reward at the end of a chase. If a player wins a chase against another one, he receives Bucks corresponding to the Bounty of the defeated player, and increases his own personal Bounty.

Further in the post, Ubisoft confirmed that The Crew Calling All Units will also bring about a slew of bug fixes, which are designed to clamp down on such technical issues as dashboard issues and malfunctioning AI. The full list of tweaks can be found via Ubisoft’s website.

Lastly, The Crew‘s second expansion brings with it new vehicles and specs for racers to experiment with, including:

  • Nissan GT-R (FS / Perf / Police Perf)
  • Jeep Wrangler (Full Stock / Street / Dirt / Raid / Police Dirt)
  • Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupé (Police Street)
