“The Crew 2 will let players experience the thrill of American motorsports 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 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. 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.”
MMO players will recall that the sequel to The Crew was originally announced just before E3 of last year, and by summer, it had a release date. That release date would’ve been tomorrow, incidentally. But in December, Ubisoft admitted it needed more time for TC2 and several other games, pushing the date somewhere between spring and fall of this year.
Preorders start at $59.99 and run up to $109.99 for the “Motor Edition” CE, which allows players to take advantage of a headstart period, season pass, cosmetics and cars, and some real-world swag, including a custom license plate. Beta signups are still live on the official site too.
Massively OP’s Andrew Ross took some hands-on time with the demo last summer at E3, finding that it was surprisingly fun and accessible even then.
