After it’s extremely rough launch late last year, Ubisoft are in the process of releasing yet another patch for The Crew which will hopefully fix a lot of the remaining issues that players are still facing.

As well as fixing a lot of problems, a brand new PvP mode is being introduced. The main goal? Eliminate everyone in the race on one of ten new tracks. Sounds interesting, at least.

You can find the full patch notes below.
