    Anyone able to play the Beta? I keep getting server error messages on ps4.

    It actually looks like a lot of fun (the driving anyway, zero interest in planes and boats). Beta videos remind message of a mix of need for speed underground and test drive unlimited. Really wish I get could get a game going.

    Gave up on the earlier betas when I managed to land my boat on an island, i liked the 1st one eventually but no interest in GTA side missions as a full game.

    The demo, sorry beta, is actually pretty fun so far! :)

    Yeah liking it too. Someone on reddit drove from San Francisco to Miami in the game and it took 45 minutes to do, 20 minutes longer than the first game. So it looks like the map is much bigger and more detailed than the first game

    I've been using fast travel myself, but it does feel bigger than the first.
    You can instantly go anywhere in the huge map, practically zero loading and swap vehicles, and vehicle types instantly.

    Course the game modes are fun also :)

    Yeah and the vehicles look unreal too

    This is a lot of fun and looks class too. Eoin, you showed up on my map and I was able to teleport straight to you but you were in a boat and I hadn't unlocked I've yet. Very impressed how easy it was too jump straight to other players. Got a boat and plane now. I find the boat very boring, the plane is grand but the street racing is great. Still have to try the off road stuff.

    Photo mode is so addictive and I barely scratched the surface with it.

    I never played the first one, what exactly is it about? Similar to GTA and Saint's Row, something less violent? Or it is just a racer? Looks good though.

    Yeah got notification that you were online. Off-road is good and the raids are cool as they are completely off the beaten track


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,465 ✭✭✭marcbrophy


    Looks class Sheehy!
    Is that running on a PS4 Pro?

    It's a racing game with a bit of story mode.
    Takes place on a map that is a scaled down version of the entire USA :)

    Nope, standard PS4. I'd say the possibilities for photos are endless with the scenery on hand. I've been looking for a racing game recently like need for speed and this looks way better than Payback. Plenty of customisation on hand as well. The street races actually remind me of NFS Underground with the alleys and jumps. The handling feels good, nice and heavy, and the cockpit view looks great. Looking forward to playing more but the beta has definitely upped my interest.

    Yeah I’m tempted to get this even though I usually don’t play driving games. I tried playing the first one but couldn’t get into it but this seems a lot more open in that there are plenty of things to do

    Is the beta over lads, if not how to sign up. Been dying for a new racer to sink some hours in

    Edit: Nevermind, a quick google got me sorted. Were people waiting long for a beta code?

    It runs to the 4th. I can send 3 codes to people through the ubisoft website. Sign into ubisoft site, add me as a friend msheehy. Let me know once done and I can send you a key. Bit of a hassle but i guess Ubi want more hits on their site.

    The nfs underground comment was what got my eyebrow raised. Loved that game. Close 2nd to granturismo 3 on the ps2. Wish they'd just give me another one of those

    Yeah been years since ive donw beta stuff and it was all going over my head.
    Downloading now so hopefully get a bit of a session in later.

    Cheers for all the help/codes lads. Very helpful, much appreciated.


  • Registered Users Posts: 29,839 ✭✭✭✭Zero-Cool


    Hey Eoin that was a good race! I missed a checkpoint which ****ed me up but some come back :pac: not sure what was going on for some of the cruising, your dot would disappear off the map intermittently.

    Have to head off but will be back on again tomorrow night.

    Also, the ability to replay the last 10 minutes of your free driving and watch it from multiple angles or free camera and edit the video is just class. First pic below is Eoin trying to monster truck over a poor old lady. The friends system seems a bit finicky but it might just be in not sure what's going on :) a full crew of lads on here would be a great laugh.

    End of our race, how close was that!!
