The Crew 2 allows Ubisoft to have selective amnesia. The Crew 2 acts as if The Crew never happened, or allow it to remember that it even existed. Which, is nothing but great news. So instead of a gritty story about vengeance and undercover cops, we have a live television show that’s broadcast around the world that goes for fun and celebration.
With a year since the original release of The Crew, the game was an ambitious take on the massively-multiplayer open-world driving game. Personally, it failed tonally with its story and with the actual driving, which is undoubtedly the most important aspect of a racing game. Between then and now, that’s been fixed, and The Crew‘s new expansion, Wild Run is about having some real fun while doing some cool things the base game wouldn’t allow. This expansion gives The Crew a boost to its personality, making it almost a necessary addition to The Crew.
Today, Ubisoft announced that The Crew closed beta will take place from November 6th to November 10th for the Xbox One video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. Players who preorder The Crew in North America will gain guaranteed access to the closed beta. Other players willing to participate in the beta can register on the waiting list, www.thecrewgame.com/beta
