12 Minutes of The Crew 2 Open-World Gameplay

Announced in May 2018, the closed beta will take place from 9am on 31 May until 9am on 4 June 2018 and will be available for PS4, Xbox One and PC. The beta will provide access to the first level of the progression system, giving players a chance to compete in races across the first four disciplines: Street Race, Rally Raid, Powerboat and Aerobatics. 

The Crew 2 will be available on PC, Xbox One and PS4. However, given that there’s at least one new platform – the Nintendo Switch – it’s possible that The Crew 2 will also come out for this too, though nothing is official.

Although The Crew didn’t get the greatest of reviews, it still has around 5 million players and the open-world nature of it makes it great fun.

In fact, the huge map which recreated pretty much the whole of the US (albeit scaled right down) was – and still is – the game’s highlight.

In real terms, there’s 5000 square kilometres to explore, and driving from coast to coast (from Miami to LA) takes about 45 minutes, it’s that big.

Anyone hoping for a brand new map and location will be disappointed, as it appears that Ivory Tower has stuck with the original US map and added bits here and there and - oddly - called it MotorNation.
