The Crew 2 launches on Xbox One and PC [updated]

The Crew 2: Gold Edition is now available on Xbox One. The title is an open-world racing game which lets you drive cars, sail boats, and fly small aircraft. The standard version is scheduled to launch this Friday, but if you purchased the top-of-the-line edition for $99.99, then you can access it a few days early.

Updated June 29, 2018: All versions of The Crew 2 are now playable.

According to Ubisoft, The Crew 2 will let you experience the thrill of the American motorsports spirit inside a fully redesigned United States. The game's playground pushes physical boundaries to let driving and open-world fans test their skills in competition and exploration.

From coast to coast, drivers will explore America and compete to become the greatest motorsports champion by collecting a wide range of exotic cars, bikes, boats and planes. Players find challenges among four different motorsports families like street racing, off-road racing, professional racing, and freestyle.

The game supports Xbox One X and, contrary to certain reports, runs at 30 FPS on consoles.

In our review, we said "there's a saying that's probably going to be thrown around a fair bit at The Crew 2: Jack of all trades, master of none. Ubisoft should be rewarded for its ambition, but ultimately ambition has translated into an overly busy experience that's got a little too much going on."

  • Cruisn' USA is back!!!! Oh wait...
  • You have to feel for this developer as Forza horizon 4 blows this game out the water from what we have seen of both.
  • I'd hardly feel too bad for them. Forza Horizon is an open secret, it's not like anyone in the industry isn't fully aware of it. Ubisoft obviously saw enough traction with the first one to commission the sequel. And don't forget, Forza Horizon is only on Xbox and PC.
  • Didn't Forza Horizon 3 sell better than The Crew?
  • More than likely did. Doesn't make it any less worth Ubisoft spending its cash on though. They don't make Forza do they :P
  • Maybe Pepsi sold better than Coca-Cola. What's your point?
