Following the announcement at Ubisoft’s E3 2017 press conference, Ubisoft released a new batch of screenshots of The Crew 2.
On top of the assets, we also get an official description providing a look on what the game is all about.
“The Crew 2’s massive and living open world offers a diverse range of locations built for non-stop multiplayer competition and no-limit exploration on the ground, sea and sky. Soar through the clouds above the snowcapped Rocky Mountains, burn rubber in the backstreets of New York City, race down the Mississippi River, or explore every inch of the Grand Canyon. Behind the wheel of a sleek hypercar, riding some of the most iconic American bikes, or taking control of the swiftest aerobatics plane or powerboats, the opportunities for adrenaline-charged challenges are limitless. The Crew 2 US playground has been completely redesigned for competitive gameplay on the land, water or in the air, with new areas enhanced by lush and life-like vegetation, 3D volumetric clouds and fog, and realistic water behavior.
Across the country, players will meet four different motorsports families: street racers, pro racers, off-road experts and freestylers, each with their own culture and set of disciplines. Each family has a unique HQ, where players can meet, buy, collect and customize vehicles. Through competitions and chance encounters, players will find and hone their personal style, collect and customize dream rides, show them off and make their mark on the US motorsports scene.”
Ivory Tower Studio Managing Director Ahmed Boukhelifa accompanied the press release with a statement:
“Today’s American motorsports scene has given us the perfect breeding ground for an all-new project. Our team has emerged with an exciting new ambition and vision for The Crew franchise and we expect The Crew 2 to continue to push the boundaries of the genre and deliver on the dream of a truly boundless driving experience.”
We also have news for those who played The Crew. Thanks to The Crew Rewards Program, they’ll get up to 18 vehicles to use in The Crew 2. If you have the game and want to prepare for the new one, you may want to start unlocking achievements if you haven’t already.
“We are very excited to present our 12 million player community with THE CREW 2. But it’s also important for us to thank them for these past two years of support and feedback. That’s why, first of all, we are offering ALL The Crew owners the iconic FERRARI 458 SPECIALE 2014. Then, thanks to The Crew Rewards Program, all The Crew 1 players – current, past or to come – will be able to unlock up to 18 vehicles on The Crew 2 thanks to their in-game achievements.
Starting today, we will unveil two awards per month until the end of the year. Each one will consist of a specific Action to perform in The Crew and an associated The Crew 2 vehicle as a reward. The first 3 awards are available right now: it’s the FORD MUSTANG GT 2015, the DUCATI DIAVEL and the MASERATI GRAND TURISMO. Furthermore, all players who successfully complete 5, 10 or 15 of the listed Actions by THE CREW 2’s release date will also be rewarded with vehicles exclusive to the new game.”
