E3: Ford F-150 Raptor SVT Featured in "The Crew"
Ubisoft's New Driving Game To Feature Ford's Off-Road Star
The Ford F-150 Raptor SVT has been a hit since it debuted, being a favorite of both the physical and virtual worlds. At last year's E3 Expo, the Raptor made its appearance in "Need for Speed Most Wanted," following its inclusion in 2010's "Need for Speed: World." In addition to the Electronic Arts' signature driving series, the Raptor has also appeared in Gametornado's online game Monster Truck Demolisher, Activision's "Blur," the Facebook game "Car Town," and both "Forza Motorsport 4" and "Forza Horizon."
The latest game debut for the Raptor will be in French game publisher Ubisoft's "The Crew," set in an open-world version of the United States. In the preview trailer, the Raptor is joined by a Chevrolet Camaro, a Nissan 370Z, and Lamborghini Gallardo in hijacking armored trucks, presumably for getting money to buy more high-performance off-road hardware for the cars. All vehicles, regardless of factory configuration, can be outfitted with off-road hardware, to give them extra versatility in game play.
The game, which encourages social collaboration and formation of "crews," pits rival crews against each other and will include mobile device integration with iOS and Android devices. "The Crew" will be available in early calendar 2014 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
