For The Crew 2, Ubisoft is broadening its racing horizons by introducing boats, bikes, and planes. At the press of a button players will be able to seamlessly swap out their vehicle to take their high-speed pursuits between land, sea, and air.
GameSpot recently got a chance to play the game and, while the open-world and vehicle transitions are still being kept under wraps, we spent some time in a few of the competitive racing types available in the game. The video above features gameplay of street racing, motorcross, jetsprint, drift, and grand prix event.
What stood out about The Crew 2 while we were playing was how loose and arcade-like it felt. Admittedly, we were racing with a number of assists on, but it made for a fun experience where we could throw our vehicles around with reckless abandon without suffering too harsh a penalty. For those who prefer to put in a little more thought into their racing, The Crew 2 provides the opportunity to do so and backs it up with robust physics modelling to ensure it's really putting seasoned racers through their paces. Check it all out in the gameplay above.
Ubisoft has confirmed that The Crew 2 will release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on June 29. Ubisoft has also opened registration for The Crew 2 beta. Additionally, you can start building up your car collection for the title by taking part in The Crew Rewards Program, which allows players to unlock vehicles for the upcoming game by completing monthly challenges in The Crew. You can learn more about the Rewards Program on Ubisoft's website.
