The Crew 2 Begins Its Road Trip in March 2018

Ubisoft offers up a love letter to motorsports next year.

Ubisoft announced today that The Crew 2, the sequel to the publisher's 2014 open-world racer, will be coming to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on March 16, 2018. The Crew 2 switches from the first game's focus on land vehicles only, adding planes and a variety of boats to the mix. Players can switch between land, sea, and air vehicles on the fly.

Like before, The Crew 2 plays out on a recreation of the United States. Players can challenge racers from four motorsport families - street racing, off-road, pro-racing and freestyle - seeking to become the champion of the extreme sports Motornation. In addition to the previously-revealed street racing, powerboat racing, aerobatics, jetsprint, and rally raid types, players can also drift race, compete in Alpha Grand Prix, or go off-road in Motocross.

Players who pre-order The Crew 2 get, the Legendary Motors Pack:

  • Mercedes-AMG C 63 Touring Car 2016
  • Harley-Davidson IRON 883 2017

The Deluxe Edition ($69.99) has the Legendary Motors Pack, plus:

  • 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

The Gold Edition gets all that plus The Crew 2 Season Pass and unlocks the game three days early. The digital Gold Edition is $99.99, while the physical version on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 is $109.99.

M.H. Williams is new to the journalism game, but he's been a gamer since the NES first graced American shores. Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
