The original The Crew may not have become the ultimate motorsport experience that Ubisoft wanted, with it taking a bit of an update before it began to establish itself in the racing scene, but with the experience gained from that huge open world driver, chances are The Crew 2 will burst into our lives with little worry. But when will that be? Well, Ubisoft have not only revealed the release date, but also details on a rather exciting special edition.
Announced today for a June 29th 2018 release on Xbox One, PS4 and PC (with enhanced additional features for PS4 Pro), The Crew 2 will throw us into the thrill of the American motorsports world with a fully redesigned USA.
Pushing physical boundaries to the nth degree, The Crew 2 will let driving and open world fans test their skills in nonstop competition and exploration – either as a solo player, or with a group of friends. Coast to coast driving will be at the forefront of the action as drivers begin to explore America and compete to become the greatest motorsports champion, 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.
Expect to come across multiple challenges and inspiration from four different motorsports families: street racing, off-road, pro racing and freestyle, with a broad set of options available among a wide selection of vehicle types.
But whilst the release date is great and all that, there is hugely interest in The Crew 2 Motor Edition as it lets players get the game three days early, allowing them to gear up before their competition on June 26th, 2018. Available right now on the Ubisoft Store, this exclusive edition will bring you the most advanced motorsports experience and includes the following:
- The Crew 2 Gold Edition and season pass, letting players enjoy new vehicles, outfits, additional content and much more
- The Motorsports Deluxe Pack, which includes unique outfits and vehicles, including the FORD F-150 RAPTOR RACE TRUCK 2017, PILATUS PC-21 AIR RACE EDITION 2002 Plane and the ABARTH 500 MONSTER TRUCK EDITION 2008
- A customised American The Crew 2 license plate that comes in a high-quality collector box, an exclusive Steelbook®, the official Roadmap of the game and four original stickers
Should you be excited for The Crew 2 and wish to pre-order the game, then you will receive The Crew 2 Legendary Motors Pack, which includes exclusive vehicles such as the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Touring Car 2016 and the HARLEY-DAVIDSON® IRON 883TM 2017.
You can start that in-game vehicle collection right now too, by participating in The Crew Rewards Program.
