Ubisoft have offered up a rather lovely trailer for The Crew 2, expanding its roster of vehicles far beyond “driving.”
The Crew 2 will feature street racing, going on roads and rooftops; off-road racing through the wilderness; boat racing on the open ocean or through winding rivers; and flight through the clouds or twisting between buildings. And good grief, but it looks a little bit lovely.
I’m hoping that this is going to be Ubisoft Syndrome in action again, where the first game was a nice idea that didn’t quite work, and the second game is going to actually live up to the possibilities. It looks like there’s going to be a framing device in terms of trying to become a popular person on some YouTube-like portal, along with all the traditional races and things, but we’ll have to see how it goes.
The Crew 2 is coming in early 2018, and you can register for beta access now, apparently. Two trailers below!
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
