The Crew Motorfest Goes for Forza Horizon Feel; Watch Trailer [UPDATE]

The Crew Motorfest, a third part of the popular racing game series from Ubisoft, has been announced. The game's trailer goes for familiar vibes similar to Forza Horizon.


Ubisoft has officially announced The Crew Motorfest - it will be an informal third installment of the popular car series.

The action of Motorfest, as predicted, will be set on the Hawaiian island of O'ahu. Struggles - this time only in vehicles - await players in the jungle or on mountain paths. There will also be street races, which will take place, for example, in the city of Honolulu.

This is the official trailer for The Crew Motorfest:

The announcement suggests that Ubisoft will try to make its new game a direct competitor to Forza Horizon. The title festival, the emphasis on sports and off-road cars, even the physics, more down-to-earth than in The Crew 2, all of this brings strong associations with the work of Playground Games.

Also announced was the launch of the Insider program, which will enable some players to test the game before its release "at various stages of work." For PC testing, which launches tomorrow, you can sign up here; for console players, the developers are appealing for patience.

We have also learned on which platforms we will play Ubisoft's latest racing game - The Crew Motorfest is expected to be available on PC, PS4, PS5, XONE, XSX/S, as well as on the Amazon Luna cloud gaming platform. The exact release date is not known, but the title is expected to be released this year.

Original message

Today at 9 am PT we will learn the contents of Ubisoft's announcement regarding The Crew. According to dataminers, it may be about the announcement of the third part of the racing game series.

The information was given on the official Twitter The Crew:

The Crew Motorfest on the way?

According to well-known industry journalist Tom Henderson (via Insider Gaming), citing his insider sources, it is most likely that the third installment of The Crew will be subtitled Motorfest.

The game was previously known under the working title Project Orlando; it was originally intended to be just a DLC for The Crew 2, but over time it evolved into a much larger project.

If these reports are to be believed, The Crew Motorfest will be set on the Hawaiian island of Oahu, a place not unfamiliar to fans of racing games - the area was also the setting for two parts of Test Drive Unlimited.

Of course, this information has not yet been confirmed, but we can assume with a high degree of probability that such a trusted source as Tom Henderson's Insider Gaming is not wrong in this case either. We won't have to wait long to verify these reports. As already mentioned - Ubisoft's event is scheduled for 9 am.
