The Crew 2 - Everything you need to know!
Explore the roads of the US with Ubisoft's open world racing game The Crew 2 which arrives this week on June 29th (or tonight with the Gold Edition). Get a quick recap with our handy guide while you wait.
What is The Crew 2?
The Crew 2 is the open world racing game sequel to the 2014 game The Crew. Like the original game you're once again able to explore a large open world full of activities to engage with and get access to a huge range of vehicles to drive. This time around you're able to drive cars, planes and boats as you swap between them at the push of a button - offering players races made of land, air and sea challenges. Players will once again find themselves in a free-roam scaled down version of the US, with popular locations such as Las Vegas, Texas, New York City and many more! The game features 4 main hub locations for drivers to explore with "The West", "The Midwest", "South" and "The East Coast" providing some unique sights to behold, as well as their own playstyle and theme.
You can try your hand at off-road, street racing, pro racing, or freestyle racing as you explore the world. Once again you'll be able to customise your character with a range of accessories and take them online to compete with people around the globe with the multiplayer. Race head to head with others or team up to take on harder challenges such as the raid rally events.
Like with the original game, there will be a large number of vehicles to get your hands on - with even more being added post-launch. Players who purchase the Season Pass for the game will get 7 day early access to some brand new vehicles throughout the year. The team will also be adding new experiences to the game every 3 months with "Live Updates" which adds new activities, features, and disciplines. The first of these will "Gator Rush" will arrive in September and add hovercrafts, 5 new vehicles and new events to the game - as well as a new Legendary rarity level for all vehicle parts. In December The Crew 2 will get PVP lobbies, which will offer a new way for players to compete.
