Ubisoft’s software library is one of great diversity. Be it titles like Assassin’s Creed Unity, Watch Dogs, or Valiant Hearts: The Great War, gamers will be able to find software that caters to their needs. One of the most anticipated games of 2014 comes from Ubisoft Reflections, a development team that looks to transform and redefine the racing genre this holiday season with the release of The Crew for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Though The Crew is in closed-beta for PC users, Examiner got the chance to chat with Andrew Willans, Senior Game Designer at Ubisoft Reflections, about the game’s felony system. While talking with Willans, we learned that the player won’t be able to race a cop, but The Crew does feature a felony system. Given the game’s scale and lively world setting, the player’s actions will determine when cops will engage in a high-speed pursuit. Find Willans’ comment below:

You can’t play as a cop, but there’s a felony system in the game. It’s a living, breathing world. When you do bad things, there’s a system behind it that cues when there’s a chase.

This system will be well-balanced allowing the player some flexibility in what they can get away with. If you happen to partake in a minor crash, the cops won’t respond. However, they will respond when deemed appropriate. Furthermore, players will have options when it comes to evading the police. The options are primarily: flee or crash in them. Find Willans’ full explanation below:

We don’t want people knocking over a trashcan and being chased by the cops. It won’t be that sensitive. To get away from the cops, you [would] try to race away as fast as you can or you can crash into them as well.

The Crew will be released on Nov. 11 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. We’ll have more to share with you on The Crew next week, so stay tuned.
