The Crew 2 Hands On First Race Gameplay

By Rebecca Smith, 8 months ago
The Crew 2 will put players in control of many different types of vehicles on land, in water, and in the sky. The last few trailers for the title have introduced us to some of those vehicles individually, the latest of which was the Mercedes-Benz X Class, but now we take a different direction. We recently got hands on with the game, and over the next few days, we'll be bringing you gameplay footage from our time racing through the world created by Ivory Tower. We begin with the first race of the game.

Gamescom 2017

We're in New York, the city that never sleeps. The Live Xtrem Series is taking place and the city is currently overrun with racers of all types. We begin by joining a race in progress, getting behind the wheel of a Porsche 911 as we battle towards the front of the pack and to increase the number of people following our progress. As we near a bridge spanning a river, we're teleported out of the car and into a powerboat. After making our mark in that vehicle, we're finally teleported into a plane, where we get to finish the race, having accumulated a grand total of 2,000 followers in the process.

Keep your eyes peeled on TA for the rest of our gameplay footage over the coming days. Alternatively, if you'd rather play the game for yourself, the title will be released on Xbox One on June 29th.

We've got the full list of The Crew 2 achievements - check the list for guides to unlocking them.
