The Crew Calling All Units is out

November 30, 2016 by Alex Novichenko

You can leave your accustomed racer seat and drive a police car now in Calling All Units DLC for multiplayer racing game The Crew. Second major expansion brings a lot of content, including new cars, level cap increase to 60, new modes, abilities and a whole new campaign.

In the new storyline players take role of Clara Washington – this skilled police-driver is tasked to take down street racers nationwide. Single player missions would be great way for learning new abilities and mechanics of pursuit before going into PvP mode.

While in a chase, the police players have access to specific abilities to use in order to arrest Street Racers:

  • Speed Hack – This ability breaks the acceleration of any Street Racer in a range of 150 meters.
  • EMP Field – The EMP Field can deactivate the brakes of any Street Racer in a range of 150 meters.
  • Jammer – When used, this ability deactivates all UI items (BreadCrumb, Radar, crew widget, 3D tags etc …) of the target in range.
  • EMP Shock – the EMP Shock makes every opponent in range lose control of their vehicle.
  • Back on target – if the players are too far away from their target, they have the possibility to use the back on target ability to reduce the distance.

 

As Street racers, the players have access to the following abilities:

  • Flashbang – this ability blinds the cop players and AI in range, and removes their UI elements for few seconds.
  • Unlimitro – gives unlimited nitro to the caster and his support players in range.
  • Guardian – This ability is a protective one, once launched, it will cleanse all the abilities sent by Cops for few seconds.
  • EMP Shock – the EMP Shock applies a single shock to the target and makes the opponent’s car lose control and grip for a few seconds.
  • Back on target for support players – if a support Street Racer (i.e, non-crate holder) is too far away from the crate holder, he has the possibility to use the back on target ability to reduce the distance.

 

The players have the possibility to choose 2 abilities from the menu before the chase, and also change them anytime during the chase gameplay.
