New Patch Adds New Challenge and Photo Mode to The Crew: Wild Run

Published: January 15, 2016 8:34 AM /



The first major content patch after Ivory Towers implemented the Wild Run expansion to their racing MMO The Crew will be released soon, and will add a few new goodies in addition to gameplay tweaks and fixes. 

The new challenge called the 'Speed Trap Challenge' will be introduced during this month's 'The Summit' PvP event on the 25th of January. This new challenge has players find the best path through several checkpoints at break-neck speeds, with the final score being made up of the player's average speed across all checkpoints. 

The next new feature they'll be implementing is the highly-requested Photo Mode, a feature that allows players to take screenshots of their cars and the environment in a dedicated in-game UI. 

This month's 'Summit' event will also add a few modifiers to the event which will award players with a +5% bonus chance of taking the exclusive vehicle reward home after the event concludes. This bonus will be awarded regardless of what kind of medal you win in the event. The only requirement is that you, at least, score a bronze medal. The Crew Summit Bonus Rewards January 2015

If you participate in at least 4 qualifier races leading up to the main event, you will be awarded a +20% chance of winning an exclusive vehicle that can't be obtained through any other means. 

The patch also implements several tweaks to how some cars handle, as well as balance some of the other available activities in the game. If you want to read the full patch notes for all the fixes and changes, you can read them on the official Ubisoft forum.

Quick Take

Pretty cool that they're adding the photo mode. As someone who likes to look at the scenery and at my vehicle as I'm driving through it, this is a welcome addition to the feature list. Time to make some custom wallpapers.

Are you looking forward to trying out the new photo mode?
