The Crew 2 beta kicks off later this month

Ubisoft has announced today that The Crew 2 beta will be launching at the end of this month. The Crew 2 beta will be available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One and is taking applications now.

The Crew 2 is the follow up to Ubisoft’s open-world ‘CARPG’ that featured a fully drivable map of the United States. The open-world and racing were praised on release, but the always online requirements were a source of frustration for players.

The Crew 2 was announced during an earning’s call. in May 2017 and will again feature a scaled down map of the United States. 

The Crew 2 Beta

The Crew 2 beta will launch on May 31 and will run through until June 4. Make sure you sign-up for a chance to secure your place.

The Crew 2 will be available worldwide on June 29.

According to Ubisoft, the beta description is as follows;

During The Crew 2 Beta, players will experience the first level of the progression system as they compete in races across the first four disciplines – Street Race, Rally Raid, Powerboat and Aerobatics – against the backdrop of a fully redesigned U.S.A via land, water and air.


To create more adrenaline-fueled experiences, players can use the Fast-Fav feature and instantly switch their vehicle type depending on the type of terrain they will encounter: an airplane flying underneath San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge can turn into a boat with the touch of a button.


Not only will the entire map be open for players to explore, but they’ll also have access to the full line-up of vehicles available in The Crew 2 to unlock.


Plus, all closed beta players will be able to participate in an exclusive mission, the Motor Trend Classic Challenge, a street race through New York City. Finally, all closed beta participants will unlock an exclusive in-game leather jacket for use in the final game.


Developed by Ubisoft Ivory Tower (with the help of Ubisoft Bucharest, Paris, Shanghai and Massive) based in Lyon, France, The Crew 2 will let players experience the thrill of the American motorsports spirit 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 non-stop 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.
