The Crew 2 will be launching on June 29, 2018, according to a news post on the game's official website.
The follow-up to The Crew is set to change things up a bit as compared to its predecessor. One of the most notable additions to the game is offroad vehicles, racing boats, and planes. These new categories will add new dimensions beyond the street racing of the first title. Take a look at a recently-released Gameplay Trailer for the game to see what's in store:
The Crew 2 is set to feature an open-world map of the United States that will let players cavort around in their vehicles on land, sea, and air. Players can simply drive around and explore the map or they can elect to participate in races and challenges across the four different categories of vehicles in the game. You'll be able to play solo or with your friends. The game was originally slated to launch in March of this year but it was delayed by three months at the end of 2017.
The release of a sequel doesn't necessarily mean that players of the previous game are going to be left out in the cold. Current players of The Crew will have the opportunity to unlock vehicles for The Crew 2 in a Rewards Program detailed on the game's website. Players simply have to complete certain challenges in the first game; they can potentially unlock 19 exclusive vehicles for the second game through this method.
If you're dead set on getting The Crew 2, you might want to look into signing up for the game's beta. You can pre-purchase it now via the game's website for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via uPlay. It's set to release for all three platforms on June 29, 2018.
