Participate in a ride to infiltrate and overtake the 510s, a gang involving Detroit's illegal street racers. Your plan is to race underground to build a reputation and then sabotage their activities across the U.S. Maneuver through New York City and Los Angeles, cruise down Miami Beach or trek through the plateaus of Monument Valley. Each location has a set of surprises and driving challenges. On your journey, encounter other players on the road, who can be worthy companions or future rivals.
As promised during E3 2014, Ubisoft is launching The Crew beta next week for PC users.
Since we’ve announced The Crew last year, we’ve received many messages from players around the world, eager to get their hands on the game! We’ve heard you loud and clear, and as we can’t wait for you to play, we announce you that our PC Closed Beta will be starting earlier than what we first announced. Get ready to play from Monday 21st of July to Friday 25th.
As you know, we’ve been focused on delivering a bold new take on the driving genre: a massive persistent world loaded with exciting driving challenges, iconic places, amazing cars - and best of all, a world filled with friends to crew up with or rivals to compete against.
Explore the entire United States with no loading screen and complete a variety of exciting challenges:
- Midwest: all missions and skill challenges.
- East Coast: all skill challenges.
- Rest of the country (The South, Mountain State, West Coast): free roaming at will!
For the purposes of this Closed Beta, we will have missions and skill challenges available only in the Midwest and challenges in the East Coast. The final game will, of course, have missions and skill challenges throughout the entire U.S. map!
You will also have access to two PvP lobbies, one in the Midwest and the other on the East Coast, where several races will be waiting for you to prove your skills against other players!
Expect to discover new vehicles that, in order to drive across a variety of terrains, you’ll be able to customize in the following specs:
- The Street Spec: You’ll get this one in Detroit!
- The Dirt Spec: This spec will be available in New York!
The Crew was built from the ground up as a breathing, living world, meaning that in this Closed Beta you will be able to play with your friends at any time – or challenge rivals from all around the world.
Finally, remember that this beta does not represent the final state of the game, and many changes will be applied before the final release on November 11!
