The Crew has got an official release date: its coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC on 11 November 2014. And if you can't wait that long then try your luck at getting access to the closed beta: registration begins 23 July (it's a dead link for the time being, patience players).

Ubisoft showed off the game's vast scale and "two hour plus" missions at its E3 media conference in Los Angeles. The open-world nature of the game - which is based around the entirety of the USA and depends on online crews to pit against each other in varied missions - gives it individual flaire.

We look forward to playing this one and like the fact it's a true next-gen only game. Not long to wait now.
