The Crew Motorfest Will Be Free from 14th March to 18th March on PS5, PS4 1

At this point, there’s a pretty good chance Microsoft’s going to port its Forza Horizon franchise to PS5 – but until that day arrives, The Crew Motorfest remains a welcome alternative. And with its third full season of content available now, publisher Ubisoft has announced the title’s first-ever free weekend, scheduled to get underway from 14th March through 18th March.

This will, of course, entitle you to enjoy the entire game during the aforementioned dates – and any progress you make will be transferrable to the full release should you decide to purchase it at any point.

The new season is headlined by the Hollywood Action playlist, which is described in the press release as an “epic recreation of a blockbuster movie set”. The blurb expands: “Taking the wheel of some of most iconic cars seen on the silver screen, players will put their driving skills to the test in Dirty Driving, destroying as many objects and making the scenes as spectacular as possible, or in Video Lane where they will have to stay in the director’s lens while taking on challenging routes.”

If you complete all nine events, you’ll unlock the Aston Martin DB5, which seems like a fitting reward for the Hollywood-inspired content.

Elsewhere, a whopping 47 new vehicles have been added to the game, which are either exclusive to The Crew Motorfest or upgraded from The Crew 2. And those who own the Year 1 Pass will unlock eight new vehicles over the coming months, including the Mini Cooper S 1968 and the Honda Integra 1998.
