Ubisoft Releases Upcoming Racing Video Game, The Crew 2

Ubisoft Releases Upcoming Racing Video Game, The Crew 2

The Crew 2 features a persistent open world environment with an for free-roaming across a scaled-down recreation of the United States, the game allows players to control a variety of vehicles including planes, cars and boats. The Crew 2 is all about taking the idea of an open-world racer to almost absolute limits.

The Crew 2 lets you drive everything including cars, racecars, off-road cars, planes, boats, bikes, and more. The trailer shows off everything from street racing, to Formula One-style competition, to a stand-in for the Red Bull Air Race series. There is even a few glimpses of Sprint Boat racing, a truly insane form of motorsports that you should take a few minutes to watch right now.


The players assume control of a relatively unknown racer, who is trying to work his way to become successful in multiple disciplines. It features a persistent open world environment for racing and free-roaming across a scaled-down recreation of the contiguous United States. In addition to cars, players can also control other kinds of vehicles including planes, motorcycles, and boats. Each vehicle has their own control physics, meaning that gameplay is different when players are controlling different types of vehicles. Players can switch between controlling air, land and sea vehicles instantly. The game features four different hub worlds, with each having their own theme and playstyle. These themes include off-road, street racing, pro racing, and freestyle. Vehicle customization will also be featured in the game. Similar to the first game, it will place a huge emphasis on multiplayer but will feature offline mode as well (this was due to receiving criticism from the first game’s always-online DRM). It also features a cooperative multiplayer mode, which allows players to join different rally raid events together. This mode can also be played solo with artificial intelligence.

In The Crew 2, you can drive around an open-world USA that has been completely reshaped for motorsports. There are four main motorsport categories in the game: street racing, off-road, pro, and freestyle, each of which has its own set of deep options and wide selection of vehicle types.

You can switch between land, water, or air-based vehicles on the fly through what Ubisoft calls a ‘Fast Fav’ feature. One example Ubisoft provided is that you could be driving across the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco in a car and then switch to a boat to zip across the water. If you catch air off a wave, you could then start flying in a plane.
