Online players can begin pre-loading one of the most highly anticipated racing game betas of 2018, as Ubisoft has begun sending out closed beta codes for their upcoming release, The Crew 2.
The closed beta does not officially go live until 4:00 A.M. Eastern Time on May 31st, 2018, but players are already scrambling to find extra beta codes for themselves and their friends before the closed beta launches. Ubisoft expects a large sample size once the closed beta launches, and will be looking to test some of the various server features during the beta.
The Crew 2’s closed beta is available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC with U Play. As of now, the beta is expected to last until June 4th, however often times developers choose to extend the beta to test additional features before the game launches. This is a likely possibility even for this closed beta, especially with the launch of the game still over a month away. It is also possible that they could extend the beta to allow players a better opportunity to decide if they would like to pre-order the game before it releases.
The Crew 2 has been developed by Ivory Tower, and features an open world racing environment that can be experienced in unison with online friends as they drive across the new and reformed environment, known as MotorNation.
The closed beta will allow players access to the entire map, so it is possible that easter eggs or secrets could be found, even prior to the game’s official release on June 29th. The developers have also announced the opportunity to retrieve the game three days earlier by pre-ordering one of the special editions, either the gold or motor edition of the game. The closed beta should give players a fair chance to make a decision in regards to whether they would want to do this.
