The upcoming Xbox One and PlayStation 4 closed beta for Ubisoft's ambitious open-world racing game, The Crew, will begin on September 30, Ubisoft has announced. It's unclear how Ubisoft will select participants for the beta, but you can sign up at the game's website today for a shot.

The beta, which was already held on PC (read our impressions here), sounds quite extensive. In the beta you can explore the entire United States (with no loading screens) and participate in various missions and skill challenges, as well as free roam. Beta players will also have access to two PvP lobbies where they can compete against other players on courses in the US Midwest and East Coast.

Ubisoft reminds gamers that what you'll see in the beta for The Crew is not representative of the final game. "Many" changes will be applied before the game launches on November 11. In addition, you need a Uplay account to sign up for the game's closed beta.

The Crew is also coming to Xbox 360, though Ubisoft has not announced if a beta for the game on that platform is in the works. For more on The Crew, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
