'The Crew 2' (ALL) Gets Free 'Hot Shots' Update, Free to Play This Weekend

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.

The Crew 2 Hot Shots update introduces a new version of the Live Summit, a weekly PvE competition where Icon-level players take on nine activities selected among the game’s wide range of playgrounds and fan-favorite disciplines such as Street Racing and Hypercar, to win new exclusive vehicles.

Debuting for the first time on consoles and PC, the new Bugatti Divo, celebrating the 110th anniversary of the brand  will be part of the six new elite vehicles available for players to access on April 24.

Beginning April 24, Season Pass owners will get seven day early access to two new additional vehicles – the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X - 2014 and the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 – 2009 – as part of the game’s monthly vehicle drop.

The update will also feature more than 40 new customization items, including colored smoke, custom tires and text emotes, brand-new unique challenges, additional Skills and in-game activities such as photo quests.

To coincide with the The Crew 2Hot Shots release, The Crew 2 will offer a free weekend from April 25 – 28. During this time, players will have access to the full game and can test their skills on all events. The game will be available for purchase at a discount of up to 70 percent off of the game and 50 percent off of the season pass. Progression from the free weekend will carry over to the full game purchase.

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.
