Ubisoft's upcoming ambitious open-world racing game The Crew does not launch until December, but some Xbox One and PlayStation 4 users can play it next week.

The publisher has announced that a second beta for The Crew will be held on both platforms November 6-10. It is a closed beta, but there are multiple ways to get in. You can either preorder the game to guarantee yourself a place in the beta (North America only), or you can put your name on the waitlist at The Crew's website right here.

The beta will let players race through the entire United States, Ubisoft says, though they can only complete challenges in two of the five regions available in the full game: the Midwest and East Coast. The Crew's beta will also offer competitive races, where players can enter PvP lobbies to go head-to-head with other real-world racers.

Customization options are also available in the beta, though they are limited to the Street and Dirt spec classes. In the full game, a total of five spec classes will be available.

Ubisoft says The Crew's closed beta is available to all Xbox Live and PlayStation Network players, though "some online features" require an Xbox Live gold or PlayStation Plus membership.

The first closed beta for The Crew was held in September on Xbox One and PS4, while PC players got to try the game even earlier. The Crew is also coming to Xbox 360, but Ubisoft has not announced plans to offer a beta on that platform. A PlayStation 3 version of The Crew is not in the works.

The upcoming beta is not the only way to play The Crew ahead of launch, as the racing game is currently out on a college football tour across the United States.
