The Crew 2, Ubisoft's open-world multi-vehicle racing game, will have an open beta next week, just ahead of its 29th June launch.
The beta goes live on 21st June, on PS4, Xbox One and PC - and you can preload it now.
The Crew 2 has a motorsports theme and introduces powerboats and stunt planes alongside cars and bikes. The first game was a bit of an underrated gem with an incredible coast-to-coast map of the continental US, which is back for this sequel. The beta's got to be worth a look.
Ubisoft has revealed its post-launch plans for The Crew 2, ahead of the open-world racers launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on June 29th.
According to the publisher, two new vehicles will be added to The Crew 2's line-up every month, and the game will receive "major free updates" every three months after launch - expanding the core experience with new disciplines, modes, and features. First out of the gate, in September, is Gator Rush, which will introduce a "tropical cocktail of bouncy fun and wacky races" via the new hovercraft discipline.
It will also bring five new vehicles, and introduce a new "Legendary" rarity for performance parts that can be collected in-game.
Ubisoft has announced that open-world multiplayer racing sequel The Crew 2 will be be getting a closed beta on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, starting on Tuesday, May 29th.
Ubisoft says that the closed beta will include the first level of progression across four racing disciplines - Street Race, Rally Raid, Powerboat, and Aerobatics. As such, participants will be able to try their hand at the series' new water- and air-based vehicles, alongside more traditional two- and four-wheeled racing, switching between available types at will in order to make best use of the track.
"An airplane flying underneath San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge", explains Ubisoft, "can turn into a boat with the touch of a button".
