The Crew 2 Gets Release Date, Pre-Orders, Special Editions and Fast Fav

By Rebecca Smith, 3 months ago
Just a few days ago, The Crew 2 revealed a partnership with Harley-Davidson to bring the renowned motorbikes into the game. Now we have a whole range of news to tell you, including a new gameplay feature, pre-order bonuses, two special editions and the most important bit of the lot, a release date.

The new Fast Fav feature allows players to switch seamlessly between their favourite ground, water or air vehicles as they travel across the game's new version of the open world USA. There will be no menus or loading screens, just a push of a button. You might be cruising through the streets of LA in a hyper car when you switch to an aerobatic plane to allow you to climb above the skyscrapers. Upon reaching the coastline, you can then switch to a powerboat to demonstrate your prowess over the waves. Take a look at the feature in action in the trailer below.


If you feel like pre-ordering a copy of the game, you'll receive the pre-order bonus of "The Legendary Motors Pack". The pack includes two vehicles: the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Touring Car 2016 and the Harley-Davidson Iron 883 2017.


The above pre-order bonus will also be included in the game's two special editions. The first of these is the Deluxe Edition that retails at US$69.99 and includes "The Legendary Motors Pack" and "The Crew 2 Motorsports Deluxe Pack". The latter pack includes:
  • Ford F-150 Raptor Race Truck 2017
  • Abarth 500 2008 Monster Truck Edition
  • Pilatus PC-21 Aerobatics Plane
  • Three unique racing outfits to customize your player avatar
The second of the special editions is the Gold Edition that retails at US$99.99 for a digital copy. As well as the above content, the Gold Edition includes the game's Season Pass too. The physical edition will retail at US$109.99 but will also include a SteelBook in North, Central and South America. Pre-ordering the Gold Edition will give players early access to the game three days before anybody else.

As well as all of the above news, Ubisoft released a handful of new screenshots at Gamescom.


Finally we have the bit of information for which you've all been waiting. The Crew 2 will be released worldwide on March 16th, 2018. Players who pre-order the Gold Edition will have access to the game from March 13th.
