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.
The highly anticipated closed beta for the upcoming open world racer from Ivory Tower opens its servers early tomorrow morning at 4:00 A.M. Eastern time. Players from around the world will jump at the opportunity to get a sneak peek at what is to come with the eventual release of the full game.
This closed beta also provides an opportunity for players to decide which version of the game is best fitted for them. The entire environment will be open for players to drive around and find the secrets of MotorNation. The closed beta is dedicated to help test the key features prior to the official release of the game on June 29th, 2018.
Players are already hyped for the closed beta as the game’s reddit page is filled with excitement and speculation as the hours tick towards the grand opening for the servers. It is expected to be one of the most highly anticipated betas for any game in the entire year, and speculation is already building as players talk about the possibility of The Crew 2 winning a game of the year award in the racing genre.
The sigh of relief comes from fans who expected the launch of the game to come in March, however Ubisoft announced the delay of the release after discussing publicly that they needed more time to perfect some of the features and polish game mechanics. Online players that participate in the closed beta will receive an in-game costume that will unlock on the first day of the actual game’s release.
The closed beta will run for a total of five days and will end on June 4th, although often times developers choose to extend the beta for further testing purposes, or to allow more players to have the opportunity to participate. This will likely become an audible decision that the development team will have to make at some point over the course of the weekend.
