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.
Get ready for the second PC Closed Beta on August 25, 2014!
Because you made our first Beta period such a resounding success, we’ve decided to open up another session for an end-of-summer driving bash. Prepare yourself and brush up on those driving skills. 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 and rivals to compete against – awaits!
If you’ve already participated in our first Closed PC Beta – or simply redeemed your key for that Beta period – guess what? First, thank you for participating, and second, you’re automatically included in our second PC Beta! Simply log in to the game on August 25th, and get started. All progress from your first Beta experience will be reset.
Due to technical limitations, a limited number of keys will be distributed. If you’re chosen to participate, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with your access key. For guaranteed access into the Beta, pre-purchase The Crew through UPlay.
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
• West Coast, Mountain States, South: Open for free- roaming!
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 US 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!
Remember that there are three other specs in the game – Perf, Raid and Circuit – and you’ll have a glimpse of those during this Closed Beta!
Playing With Your Friends
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.
