At the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Ubisoft announced that the open beta for The Crew 2 will be available from June 21, 1 am PDT to June 25, 1 am PDT on PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X and Windows PC. Players eager to jump into the exhilarating US open world behind the wheel of their favorite cars, bikes, boats and planes can pre-load the open beta version now at thecrewgame.com/openbeta
The open beta will introduce players to the game’s full open world, including unique regions and cities catering to all motorsports gameplay. By completing missions and challenges on the ground, on water and in the air, players will be able to progress through the first two levels unlocking new disciplines and vehicles as they earn more followers. Similar to the full game that will be available June 29, open beta content will be playable with up to three friends on the same platform in four-player co-op, or in single-player.
During the open beta, a livestreamed King of the Road Trip event will kick off at 1 pm PDT on June 22, with 16 racers competing for the title. Coming from four different areas of the US – the West, Midwest, South, and East Coast – the challengers will compete in an adventure set in their respective regions, testing their skills on a journey through the US. The last racer standing will be crowned as King of the Road Trip, with the event ending at 5 pm PDT on June 22. Viewers can tune in and watch the action on Ubisoft’s Twitch channel, Ubisoft’s YouTube channel, and The Crew 2’s Facebook page.
Developed by Ubisoft Ivory Tower, a studio 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 in nonstop 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. They 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.
The Crew 2 will launch worldwide on June 29, 2018 on PlayStation 4 system, Xbox One and PC. Gold Edition owners can try the full The Crew 2 experience before it is released as part of an exclusive Play Early period starting June 26 on PlayStation 4 system, Xbox One and PC just one day after the end of the open beta.
