After officially announcing The Crew 2’s release date, it’s time to dive into its beta and help Ubisoft shape the title to the experience you want.
The Crew 2’s beta kicks off on May 31st and ends on June the 4th. The beta will allow players to experience “the first level of the progression system,” featuring four racing disciplines. Players will also enjoy access to the entire map and the “full line-up of vehicles.”
During The Crew 2 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.
Not only will the entire map be open for players to explore, but they’ll also have access to the full line-up of vehicles available in The Crew 2 to unlock. Plus, all closed beta players will be able to participate in an exclusive mission, the Motor Trend Classic Challenge, a street race through New York City. Finally, all closed beta participants will unlock an exclusive in-game leather jacket for use in the final game.
Developed by Ubisoft Ivory Tower (with the help of Ubisoft Bucharest, Paris, Shanghai and Massive) 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.
Those interested can sign up for the beta (open to PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players) before it starts later this month through here. The Crew 2 releases on June 29 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
