Ubisoft's upcoming MMO-racer The Crew will feature a version of New York City that's slightly bigger than Grand Theft Auto IV's Liberty City.
That's according to the game's lead designer Serkan Hassan, who made the claim when asked whether the game would be supported with additional location DLC in an interview with IGN. He also revealed that New York is just one of around 16 cities that will appear in the finished game...so expect to lose a significant chunk of time if you want to see everything.
"I don't think anyone for a considerable time will be petitioning us for more location DLC. I don't think it'll happen," he said. "I mean we've given you a landmass where New York City in our game is the size of Liberty City in GTA 4. So I think we'll be safe for a while.
"Liberty City in GTA 4 is a good benchmark for our New York. New York is only one of our cities in the game though; we've got something like 15 or 16 cities at the last count in the game.
"I heard somewhere that if you take one of our fastest cars, tuned to the maximum and floor it on highways only going East Coast to West Coast, it'll take you about 90 minutes real-world time. That's you driving a Lamborghini that's highly-tuned and sticking to freeway routes, which are the most direct."
The Crew will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in the first quarter of next year.
