The Crew 2's latest update, Season 7 Episode 2, is now available.

The Blizzard Rush update also includes five new hypercar events and if you complete the full series, you'll unlock the BMW M8 Coupé. There's also an all-new Motorpass - "featuring 50 tiers of new exclusive rewards, both free and premium" - which includes the Bugatti EB110 Super Sport Anodized Edition (hypercar), the Dodge SRT Charger Lab Edition (Street Race), the Saleen S1 Icebreaker Edition (Street Race), vanity items, outfits, and currency packs (Crew Credits and Bucks). We'll also get the Porsche 928 S4 (Street race) on 18th January and the McLaren 765LT (hypercar) on 25th January, too.

Some retired vehicles will be coming back to the shop, too; you can pick the BMW M8 Competition Coupe Interception Unit (Street race) on 8th February, the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 RS Enforcer Unit (hypercar) and the RAM 1500 Rebel TRX Concept Enforcer Unit (Rally Raid) on 15th February, and the Mitsubishi 3000 GT VR4 Interception Unit (Street race) on 1st March.

"[Players] will need to sharpen their skills to complete a new country-wide illegal race, needing them to always stay focused," Ubisoft teases. "Indeed, environmental hazards are everywhere this time, and neither wild mountain roads, nor the coming snowstorm will do them any favours."

The Crew franchise has clocked up over 30 million players since it first launched back in 2014. In his The Crew 2 review when it first released back in 2018, Oli said: "As someone who initially dismissed The Crew but eventually fell in love with it, I dearly wished to see its promise fulfilled and its incredible map brought back to life".
