When it rains it pours, and Ubisoft has announced more gaming news at Gamescom this year in the shape of The Crew 2, the latest entry in the revolutionary open-world driving franchise The Crew will launch on March 16th, 2018. The game will be available on PlayStation 4 Pro computer entertainment system, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, Xbox One X and Windows PC. Players can still sign up now for a chance to have beta access.
From coast to coast, players will experience the thrill of a huge, varied and action-packed open world USA completely reshaped for motorsports. In The Crew 2, drivers will explore America and compete to be a champion of Motornation, by collecting a wide variety of exotic cars, bikes, boats and planes, and by dominating the motorsports scene on the land, on the water, and in the air. They will find challenges and inspiration from four different motorsports groups: street racing, off-road, pro-racing and freestyle, and will be given a deep set of options among a wide selection of vehicle types.
For the first time, The Crew 2 offers the Fast Fav feature, giving players the ability to switch between their favourite ground, water, and air vehicles with the push of a button. Players can race full throttle off the Golden Gate Bridge and transform instantly into a speedboat as they hit the Bay, catch a huge wave, and seamlessly transition into a stunt plane and fly away into the sunset. Players enjoy total freedom to ride any way they want in the familiar landscapes of The Crew 2’s vast open world.
For those who prefer the thrill of the race, players will also put their racing skills to the test in a full range of competitive disciplines. In addition to previously announced street racing, powerboat racing, aerobatics, jet sprint and rally raid, three more disciplines have been introduced this week at Gamescom. Drift will have road racing fans burn rubber and take every curve in style to score points with every great slide, while the Alpha Grand Prix single-seater is tailored for the pro-racers in search of the perfect line. Carved in the heart of nature, a Motocross muddy track is waiting for off-road specialists to master the dirt and own every bump.
The Crew 2 allows players to express their creativity and skill, sharing unique moments of fun and extreme sensations. On their way to becoming the greatest motorsport champion, players will be able to track their actions and spot every wow moment of their journey. With LIVE Replay, The Crew 2 provides players with a light and user-friendly tool that will automatically record every glorious feat into a fully staged video clip to share with the world or to brag about with their friends
