The Crew 2 touches down in March 2018

This is a crowded year for racing games

By the time The Crew 2 releases on March 16, 2018, I’ll be ready to dig into another open-world racer. I spent a stupid amount of time screwing around the scaled-down USA and grinding up my stats in The Crew, and even though the sequel will have the same general setting, it has some new tricks. Namely, its on-the-fly vehicle switching that lets you swap between a car, boat, or plane at any time.

Ubisoft has also confirmed a few more “disciplines” for the game. We’re now looking at street racing, powerboat racing, aerobatics, jetsprint, rally raid, drift, single-seater, and motocross.

Leading up to launch, there will be a beta, which you can sign up for here (still no word on an exact date). Until then, The Crew players can work to earn rewards in the sequel by completing challenges.
