  • Hands On The Crew 2 PS4 Beta Is Big, Barren, and Boring

    Sail away

    After spending several hours behind the wheel of The Crew 2's open beta, one warning light kept flashing up on the dashboard: it's too big. The map, a truncated version of the entire United States, is enormous - impressively so - but it's dull as dishwater. One of the major changes to this sequel is the addition of planes and boats, and...

  • Reminder The Crew 2 Open Beta Begins Today on PS4

    Start your engines

    The time has come for Ubisoft's open beta test for The Crew 2. Announced during its E3 2018 press conference, the beta starts today on PS4, and you'll be able to muck about in cars, boats, and planes until Monday 25th June. You've been able to download it ahead of time, but if you've yet to install it, the file size weighs in at...

    Start your engines

    The Crew 2 got a brand new trailer at Ubisoft's E3 2018 press conference, which you can see above. It's looking pretty decent ahead of its 26th June release date, but the big news is that an open beta will be taking place a little later this month on PS4. The beta will allow you to play the game between the 21st and the 25th...

  • News Here's 12 Crazy Minutes of Footage for The Crew 2

    Transformers

    The Crew 2 is shaping up to be far bigger and better than the 2014 original, and one of the biggest factors behind that is the ability to switch between your chosen method of transport at any moment. Just take a look at how utterly bonkers this looks in practice in the video above as a car turns into a plane before your eyes, and then...

    Surf and turf

    The Crew 2’s multi-discipline campaign will speed to the PlayStation 4 from 29th June, publisher Ubisoft has confirmed. Those of you who pre-order the Motor Edition – which bundles in a nifty license plate, some decals, a steelbook case, a map, and access to the Gold Edition of the game – will be able to play three days earlier...

    Emergency brake

    According to a report on Kotaku today, Sony will be refunding all PlayStation Store pre-orders of Ubisoft's open-world racer sequel, The Crew 2. This comes as a result of last month's news that several of the publisher's games were being pushed back. The Crew 2 was initially marked for release in March, but was delayed until the

  • E3 2017 This Is How The Crew 2's Motorsport Triathlons Work

    One way or another

    One of the more bemusing announcements of E3 2017: The Crew 2 has boats now – and planes. As strong believers that Jet Moto deserves a reboot, this actually interests us – but how the feck does it all work? Simple, really – it adopts a triathlon format, flinging you from one discipline to the next in an attempt to hold...

  • News Ubisoft Sequel The Crew 2 Buckles Up on PS4

    You know as much as we do

    To coincide with Ubisoft’s financial call, the French publisher has dropped the most anticlimactic announcements on its forums. Hand-in-hand with Far Cry 5 – it’s using a nice font, that one – the company has confirmed that The Crew 2 is set to release at some point before 31st March, 2018. So, there’s that...

    Publisher overhauling PS4 racer's visuals

    We weren't all that enamoured with The Crew when it released on the PlayStation 4 last year, but kudos to Ubisoft, it's not pumping the brakes on the brand just yet. In fact, upcoming expansion Wild Ride is more than just your average DLC pack – it's going to launch alongside a brand new graphics engine...

    Review The Crew

    Thank you for driving dangerously

    If you’ve ever fancied taking a coast-to-coast road trip across America, then you were probably excited by the announcement that Ubisoft's latest driving game The Crew was offering the chance to do just that. Even with its abbreviated version of the USA, the scale of its game world, coupled with the chance to tear...

    Beta sign up quick

    In the aftermath of DriveClub’s well-documented problems, we actually admire Ubisoft for delaying The Crew while it runs one last closed beta. The title had been set to hit the road next month, but following some less than stellar feedback, the company has de

  • News The Crew Takes Time to Make a Few Additional Recruits

    Ambitious racer spending a few extra weeks in the workshop

    Ubisoft will be taking a little extra time to tinker with its ambitious open world racing release The Crew, as the title has taken a detour into December. The constantly connected ‘CaRPG’ had originally been set to take to the track on 11th November, but will now hit the road on 2nd...

  • News PS4 Racer The Crew Is Going to Drive Away with Your Wallet

    Money sink

    Ubisoft’s intriguing open world racer The Crew has always sounded ambitious, but we never expected its lofty aims to expand to its monetisation model as well. While the cross-country excursion – which will see you competing across a condensed interpretation of the United States – will release as a full-priced product for the...
