Ubisoft’s open-world racing game The Crew 2 is set to arrive on PS4, Xbox One, and PC in June, but some players will have the opportunity to try the game out ahead of its release. Ubisoft has announced more details about its upcoming Crew 2 closed beta, which kicks off on all platforms later this month.
The closed beta begins May 31 and runs until June 4. As is the case with most other closed betas, space is limited, so only some players who have registered for the test on the game’s official website will be selected to participate. Those who are chosen will be able to pre-load the beta beginning May 29.
“During the closed beta, players will experience the first level of the progression system as they compete in races across all first four disciplines [Street Race, Rally Raid, Powerboat, and Aerobatics] against the backdrop of a fully redesigned USA,” Ubisoft says. Players will be able to try out the game’s Fast-Fav feature, which allows them to instantly transform their vehicle depending on the terrain.
Even if you don’t get chosen to participate in The Crew 2 closed beta, you can already begin building up your car collection by taking part in The Crew Rewards Program. By completing monthly challenges in the first The Crew, you can unlock vehicles for the upcoming game. More details about The Crew Rewards Program can be found on Ubisoft’s website.
The Crew 2 launches for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on June 29. Along with the standard version, Ubisoft is releasing a special edition of The Crew 2 dubbed the Motor Edition. It includes the game’s season pass, a Motorsports Deluxe Pack that contains several outfits and vehicles, a Crew-themed license plate, steelbook case, roadmap, and four stickers. Everyone who purchases the Motor Edition will also receive access to the game three days early, on June 26.
