The open-world racing game returns in The Crew 2, letting players experience the thrill of the American motorsports spirit inside a fully redesigned USA.

Welcome to Motornation, one of the most exhilarating open worlds ever created. The Crew 2’s playground pushes physical boundaries to let driving and open-world fans test their skills, solo or with friends, in non-stop competition and exploration, featuring a variety of cars, bikes, boats and planes, and become the greatest motorsports champion.

From coast to coast, players will experience the thrill of a huge, varied and action-packed open world USA completely reshaped for motorsports. In The Crew 2, drivers will explore America and compete to be a champion of Motornation by collecting a wide variety of exotic cars, bikes, boats and planes and dominating the motorsports scene on the land, on the water and in the air. They will find challenges and inspiration among four different motorsports families: street racing, off-road, pro-racing and freestyle, and are a given a deep set of options among a wide selection of vehicle types.

For the first time ever, The Crew 2 offers the Fast Fav feature, giving players the ability to seamlessly switch between their favorite ground, water and air vehicles with the push of a button. Players can race full throttle off the Golden Gate Bridge and transform instantly into a speedboat as they hit the Bay, catch a huge wave and seamlessly transition into a stunt plane and fly away into the sunset. Players enjoy total freedom to ride any way they want in the familiar landscapes of The Crew 2’s vast open world.

For those who prefer the thrill of the race, players will also put their racing skills to the test in the widest range of competitive disciplines. In addition to previously announced street racing, powerboat racing, aerobatics, jetsprint and rally raid, three more disciplines are being introduced this week at Gamescom. Drift will have street racing fans burn rubber and take every curve in style to score points with every glorious slide, while the Alpha Grand Prix single-seater is tailored for the pro-racers in search of the perfect line. Carved in the heart of nature, a Motocross muddy track is waiting for off-road specialists to master the dirt and own every bump.


Ubisoft announced The Crew's that second free update, Demolition Derby, will be available on December 5 on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

The Demolition Derby update introduces a new Demolition Derby discipline where competitors must try to earn a top-three spot by getting the highest score in a limited amount of time. Two new arenas have been built to house the destruction. The Bonneville Salt Flat where players will earn points by crushing their opponents’ cars while avoiding obstacles like being smashed by an elevator, a spring-loaded boxing glove or other cars. And a new circuit built in the heart of the Tucson aircraft cemetery, where players will be able to push their opponents off of the track for even more devastation. In addition to the Demolition Derby discipline, the update brings the highly anticipated PvP mode to The Crew 2. Starting at the Rookie level, up to eight players can compete against each other in a variety of disciplines, such as Street Racing and Motocross, in a constantly renewed selection of events across the US map. Players eager to shift the competition into top gear can enter in the in-game PvP leagues for higher stakes and rewards.

Four new demolition derby cars will be included in the update and for the first time in The Crew 2, whether in a specific mode or in freedrive, the demolition derby cars will be completely destructible.

The update will also feature more high-octane contests, including exclusive Drift, Alpha Grand Prix and Rally Cross challenges as well as additional skills and in-game activities.

As part of The Crew 2’s monthly vehicle drop, the Audi RS3 LMS - 2017 and the Aeroboat – VS12 - 2018 are now available for all players to access.

The release of Demolition Derby is the next step in the The Crew 2 post-launch development schedule, and the team is committed to continue introducing ample new content through regular updates in the months ahead. September saw the release of the first major free update, Gator Rush and the Hovercraft discipline. For more information on The Crew 2 post-launch plans, please visit here.

The Crew 2 allows players, solo or with friends, to fully express their creativity and skills, sharing unique moments of fun and extreme sensations. On their way to becoming the greatest motorsport champion, players will be able to track their actions and spot every wow moment of their journey. With LIVE Replay, The Crew 2 provides them with a light and user-friendly tool that will automatically record every glorious feat into a fully staged video clip to share with the world or to brag with their friends.

Across the country, players will meet four different motorsports families: street racers, pro racers, off-road experts and freestylers, each with their own culture and set of disciplines. Each family has a unique HQ, where players can meet, buy, collect and customize vehicles. Through competitions and chance encounters, players will find and hone their personal style, collect and customize dream rides, show them off and make their mark on the US motorsports scene.

Players can start their The Crew 2 vehicle collection right now with The Crew Rewards Program. By completing a series of monthly challenges in the first installment of The Crew, they can unlock up to 18 vehicles in The Crew 2, including exclusive air and water vehicles.

The Crew 2 will launch on June 29, 2018, for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
