The Crew opens up the throttle to show off new screens and a trailer

Ubisoft is set to introduce us to The Crew, an open world racer that turns the continental United States into a racer’s playground, this fall on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It is an RPG on wheels, with experience earned that you use to improve your whips and deck out your garage. You earn this experience by completing missions, either on your own, with friends, or by simply teaming up with some of the numerous players you’ll encounter in the game’s persistent online world. 

We won’t be able to get our hands on the game until later in the year, but Ubisoft was kind enough to tease us with a few peeks in this new set of screens and gameplay trailer. The Crew features several different types of races that will test you on dirt tracks, winding roads, and flat out straightaways. As you’d expect from any racing game worth its salt, especially one with multiple terrains, there will be plenty of cars to help you complete your missions. 

The Crew isn’t the first open world racer, but it is shaping up to be one of the most ambitious. Expect to hear plenty more about this game as it nears release.

A Na'vi in the jungles of Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora.

Even though it came out all the way back in 2009, Avatar's world is still technically impressive, and that fidelity is going to be reflected in the game Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. Announced at Ubisoft's Forward E3 press conference with a technically impressive trailer, much of the game is still a mystery. However, Ubisoft has put out a new trailer, and while it doesn't talk about gameplay or the game's story, it does detail the changes that had to be made to Ubisoft's Snowdrop engine to make the game visually stunning.
