The Crew 2 beta features the entire open world, sign-ups now live


The beta includes the "Fast-Fav" feature, a gameplay element that lets you instantly change vehicles, as well as jump into a boat while driving across a bridge. The stream will take place in The Crew 2's Twitch channel at 10:00 am Pacific / 1:00 pm Eastern.

Luckily, fans won't have to wait until the end of June to get their hands on the much-anticipated sequel as Ubisoft is holding a closed beta at the end of the month.

Starting at 6.00 pm AEST on 31 May and running until 6.00 pm AEST on 4 June, the closed beta will be offered on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.

The closed beta will feature the first level of The Crew 2's progression system, with races across the first four disciplines: Street Race, Rally Raid, Powerboat and Aerobatics.

The publisher notes players who are selected for the beta are encouraged to make use of the ability to pre-load the build, which will be available from May 29.

Ubisoft has said that there will be no restrictions on where players can roam in the world, saying that they can "explore [the] entire open world with no loading times or barriers".

Developed by Ubisoft Ivory Tower, a studio based in Lyon, France, The Crew 2 will let players experience the thrill of the American motorsports spirit inside a fully redesigned USA.
