The Crew 2 - Release Date, Gameplay, Cars, Bikes, Planes, Boats, City - Everything We Know

Ubisoft unveiled The Crew 2 for the first time at E3 2017, giving us a look at some of the new cars and tracks we'll be playing with in the near future.

The Cew 2 is coming, with Ubisoft revealing the game at E3 2017. This time the game is built around motorsports in the US and includes far more than just cars. On this page we’ll keep you up to date with all the latest on The Crew 2, including the release date and pre-order info.

We're at E3 2017 covering the year's biggest gaming event. Be sure to check out all our coverage on our E3 2017 hub!

The Crew 2 Release Date and Beta

The Crew 2 was recently given a release date of March 16, 2018, and those who pre-order the game can get the 'Legendary Motors Pack', which contains the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Touring Car 2016, and the Harley-Davidson Iron 883 2017. A beta for The Crew 2 is coming, but no date is currently known. You can sign up for The Crew 2 beta on the game’s official website.

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
  • Three unique racing outfits to customize your player avatar with

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.

Tom Orry

Managing Editor

Tom started life on a circus in Australia before his family moved to the UK. His love of gaming started soon after, which essentially meant he bought every video game magazine available and worked numerous part-time jobs as a child in order to afford costly N64 games. He created UK site VideoGamer.com, of which he was the Editor for over a decade. He now doesn't like circuses.
