The Crew adds Practice Mode to the Summit

News Xbox LIVE Xbox One

The monthly Summit is an event all to familiar to those regular players of The Crew and the expansion update that came in the form of Wild Run. Well until recently you havent been able to test you luck and practice for the Summit until the time of the event but this has all changed now. Following the February patch players can now use the Practice Mode to try Monster Truck, Drag and Drift challenges outside of the Summit or Qualifiers.

However like the Event and Qualifiers, Practice mode still ranks you depending on skill but this also means you can get rewarded on your performance bagging rewards in the form of XP, bucks and even car parts.

When I logged on the other day I was surprised just how many people still play the game and how the community spirit thrives with players willing to join events, team up and generally cruise around together. So let us know if you still play The Crew, what you think of the Summit Events and the new practice mode. Oh and if you’re ever on and see me, feel free to drop me an invite.
