Rennes, December 2, 2014 — Thrustmaster and Ubisoft® have teamed up to release two racing wheel + game bundles, allowing gamers to immerse themselves in the world of The Crew™ with incredible realism – via the TX Racing Wheel on Xbox One™, or the T100 FFB on PC.
A unique offer for sensation-seeking gamers
In order to provide an incredibly lifelike in-game experience, Ubisoft and Thrustmaster have worked together to prepare two bundles for the starting line on December 2 – each including a Thrustmaster Force Feedback racing wheel and the game The Crew™, developed by Ivory Tower.
In the words of Stéphane Beley, Game Director at Ivory Tower: “The Crew™ brings the thrill of driving and the fun of sharing right to the heart of the racing game experience. In it the United States is wide open to gamers, who are free to explore this sprawling playing field spread out over thousands of square kilometers in an open-world format filled with activities. Naturally, a driving game is designed to be played with a racing wheel, which enhances gamers’ emotions – thanks in particular to its Force Feedback and 360 degrees of rotation.”
“We have worked closely with Ivory Tower’s studios in order to provide a gaming experience which ensures powerful sensations on our Force Feedback racing wheels,” explains Gilles Raulet, Thrustmaster’s Development and Production Director. The two bundles offered combine the TX Racing Wheel with the Xbox One version of The Crew™ via the included game disc, and the T100 FFB with the PC version via a code which lets the purchaser download the full version of the game.
This open-world immersion across the United States will be all the more thrilling when using the TX Racing Wheel on Xbox One, or the T100 FFB on PC. Gamers will be able to count on a strong ally with which to successfully carry out all of the missions and challenges, helping them gain momentum and ramp up their performance as they make their way through the game.
The TX Racing Wheel is the ultimate racing simulator for Xbox One. Under the hood is a brushless industrial Force Feedback servomotor, a friction-free dual belt mechanism, and high-performance H.E.A.R.T HallEffect AccuRate Technology® – featuring a contactless magnetic sensor! The wheel’s Force Feedback is super-smooth, powerful and fluid with zero cogging or latency, not to mention extremely quiet. Its pedal set features pedals with a long range of travel, plus progressive resistance on the brake pedal. The TX Racing Wheel boasts textured rubber grips, two large 100% metal sequential paddle shifters, ten action buttons, a two-position manettino dial and an ENGINE START D-pad.
The T100 FFB is equipped with a Force Feedback system featuring Immersion TouchSense® technology; the wheel’s sturdiness and precision are ensured by way of a metal axle and ball bearing mechanism. The incorporation of a mixed belt-pulley and gears system results in smooth and fluid motion, while the wheel’s grip surfaces feature textured rubber cladding. Also included are ten action buttons and a D-pad, along with Up and Down sequential paddle shifters as well.
The large pedal set includes two pedals and a wide foot-rest: each pedal’s angle of inclination can be adjusted, with the brake pedal also featuring progressive resistance.
