Open beta is running now, June 21st all the way until Monday, June 25th at 1am PDT/4am EST. The beta is available on PC, Xbox One and PS4 and has no NDA for those who want to stream, capture or otherwise share their driving experiences.

As for content in the open beta, a self-described “large chunk” of the game will be open, including the entire open world in Freedrive mode and the first eight disciplines of racing like street racing, powerboats and aerobatics. Don’t get too attached to your progress, though; your character will not carry over into the full title.

On top of the beta itself, there are a couple of events of note happening with The Crew 2. US citizens 18 years of age or older who reach Fame Level 2 could win a real-life Harley-Davidson Iron 883 motorcycle. There’s also the King of the Road Trip competitive event being livestreamed on the Ubisoft’s Twitch channel this Friday, June 22nd at 1pm PST/4pm EST.

All of the details about everything The Crew 2 open beta-related are here and a trailer is below.

Our Thoughts

With the impression that Forza Horizon 4 made during Microsoft’s E3 press conference, we’re definitely interested in whether a game like The Crew 2 can hit the ground running and offer a multiplayer open world racing experience that satisfies genre fans. Here’s hoping all goes reasonably well!

Post-Launch Plans for The Crew 2 Detailed

Even though the game hasn’t even entered its open beta yet, but the devs are already talking The Crew 2 post-launch updates. An announcement and accompanying video is breaking down how much game will be available for those who simply buying into the game at the entry level or those who like the whole Season Pass thing. And, yes, there are a few folks like that. For reals.

Let’s talk free first. The devs of The Crew 2 are planning monthly updates that will bring two new vehicles to the game and larger content updates every three months that will introduce new events and features. The first of these larger updates, called Gator Rush, will bring a new Hovercraft vehicle type and promises “wacky races on all kinds of surfaces and playgrounds”. Gator Rush will also introduce five new vehicles and a Legendary tier of performance parts.

For those who want to spend extra money on The Crew 2, there’s the Season Pass. Pass holders will get seven days early access to the free monthly vehicles, three exclusive vehicles on day one, an exclusive house location, exclusive outfits, and a discount on the in-game store. The Crew 2 will be offering a Gold Edition which bundles in this Season Pass along with a three-day head start when the game goes live.

“Continuous expansion and renewal has always been at the core of our vision for the franchise,” said Ahmed Boukhelifa, managing director of developer Ivory Tower. “For players, this means they will always find new activities and things to discover – or re-discover from another perspective.”

The Crew 2 will officially launch on Friday, June 29th on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. As for open beta, we’ll all have to wait until E3 to learn when that kicks off. The aforementioned summary video of planned post-launch updates is below.

Our Thoughts

Alright, well the overall update cadence definitely sounds steady and it seems like the benefits of the Season Pass aren’t quite so game-breaking. What we want to know, though, is just what this in-game store is offering.
