Ubisoft have announced that the Closed Beta for The Crew 2 will take place from May 31st, at 9am UK time, to June 4th at 9am UK time, on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Players can sign up now for a chance to get Beta access at www.thecrewgame.com/beta. Pre-load will be available for Closed Beta selected players on all platforms starting on May 29th, 2018.
During the Closed Beta, players will experience the first level of the progression system as they compete in races across the first four disciplines – Street Race, Rally Raid, Powerboat and Aerobatics – against the backdrop of a fully redesigned U.S.A via land, water and air. To create more adrenaline-fueled experiences, players can use the Fast-Fav feature and instantly switch their vehicle type depending on the type of terrain they will encounter: an airplane flying underneath San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge can turn into a boat with the touch of a button.
Developed by Ubisoft Ivory Tower based in Lyon, France, The Crew 2 will let players experience the thrill of the American motorsports spirit inside a fully redesigned USA. The game’s playground pushes physical boundaries to let driving and open world fans test their skills, solo or with friends, in non-stop competition and exploration. From coast to coast, drivers will explore America and compete to become the greatest motorsports champion by collecting a wide variety of exotic cars, bikes, boats and planes, and dominating the motorsports scene on the land, on the water and in the air. Players will find challenges and inspiration among four different motorsports families: street racing, off-road, pro racing and freestyle, and will be given a broad set of options among a wide selection of vehicle types.
Harley-Davidson’s Iron 883 is set to make a big entrance into the world of The Crew 2 – and what better game to partner with. The Crew 2 is set across an open scaled-down version of the US, Harley-Davidson is the biggest American manufacturer of motorbikes – sounds like a no brainer to me.
Speaking of sound… listen to those bikes… is it me or do they actually sound like the iconic bike as well as looking like them…
The Crew 2 launches on June 29 and you can get your own virtual Harley-Davidson via the Legendary Moros Pack, available for free to everyone who pre-orders the game.
The Crew 2 has finally been given a release date of 29th June 2018 and will be available on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. The sequel to the 2014 game expands on the open-world setting but introduces other vehicles such as powerboats and planes. Ubisoft have also released a lovely new trailer which you can see below.
The Crew 2 originally had a release date of March 16th, but was delayed to Q3 2018 in order for developer Ivory Tower to “deliver an experience that fulfils both our fans’ and our own quality expectations.”
