Ubisoft has been giving away free games every month since June to celebrate the company's 30th anniversary since it was founded in 1986. Other freebies for previous months included Prince of Persia: Sands of Time (June), Splinter Cell (July), and Rayman Origins (August).

Three more games will be offered for free, coming in October, November, and December. October's game will be revealed during the middle of the month. You have 30 days to claim a new title, after which it's yours to keep forever.

Some people may have already gotten The Crew for free, as it was a part of the Games With Gold program in June.

Next up for The Crew is an expansion called Calling All Units. It lets you hit the streets as a cop or a street racer for a "police chase fantasy," Ubisoft said when announcing it. There is a 12-mission story that introduces the police-versus-racer gameplay, featuring "fully tuned" vehicles and more.

Calling All Units comes out on November 29 for all platforms. The first expansion for The Crew, called Wild Run, came out in November 2015.

The Crew received a score of 5/10 in GameSpot's review. Critic Peter Brown said, "When The Crew puts you into races with good AI, and you get to race through interesting and varied environments, you get the feeling that you're playing a good game. When you struggle to find people to join your crew online, balk at the outdated graphics, and shake your head at the AI and the occasionally unpredictable physics, you realize: The Crew isn't that good after all. When you can't play due to server issues, you find a new game to play and leave The Crew in your dust."
