You can see a brand new trailer for The Crew 2 just below, which revealed the March 16 release date for the game.

The Crew 2 Special Editions Revealed

While announcing the release date for the game, Ubisoft also revealed The Crew 2 Deluxe and Gold Editions. For $69.99, the Deluxe Edition of The Crew 2 will contain the following:

  • The Legendary Motors Pack
  • The Motorsports Deluxe Pack
  • Ford F-150 Raptor Race Truck 2017
  • Abarth 500 2008 Monster Truck Edition
  • Pilatus PC-21 aerobatics plane

The Crew 2 Gold Edition will contain all the above content, a Season Pass, and will allow players to access the game three days early, for the price of $109.99 physically, or $99.99 digitally.

The Crew 2 is More Than Just Cars

The big change from the original The Crew in the sequel is the inclusion of far more vehicles types. Street racers in the heart of the city burn up the asphalt; players can forge their own path offroad in buggies and dirt bikes, speed boats race on the ocean, rapids, and rivers; and racing stunt planes zoom between buildings and through clouds.

In the E3 footage for The Crew 2 we saw plenty of vehicles:

  • Bikes
  • Planes
  • Sports Cars
  • Trucks
  • Touring Cars
  • Speed boats
  • Police cars
  • Police helicopters
  • F1 or Indycars

While not detailed, car tuning was mentioned. It’s not clear if you’ll be able to tune all vehicle types, but it was a key part of the original so we’d guess there will be an element of this across the board.
