The Crew 2 gets new release date, special edition detailed
The sequel to 2014’s open-world racing game that features cars, bikes, boats and planes is launching June 29
Ubisoft’s racing franchise The Crew is getting its second entry, which will add motorcycles, airplanes and boats to the mix. The Crew 2 will launch on Xbox One, PS4 and PC on June 29, according to a launch date trailer released by the company.
The game was originally supposed to launch this month, but was delayed along with Far Cry 5 and another game that has yet to be revealed.
The original game allowed players to drive to the far corners of a modified version of the United States in open-world racing action that took the protagonist on a mission to avenge the murder of his brother. Expansions added police chases, monster trucks and more.
Ubisoft also detailed its “Motor Edition” of The Crew 2, which includes the game, season pass and some other goodies and launches earlier than the normal version of the game on June 26. It’s available exclusively through Ubisoft’s online store for $109.99.
Here’s everything included in the Motor Edition, as written by Ubisoft:

You will also receive The Crew 2 Season Pass to enhance your experience with new vehicles, outfits, additional content and much more!
The Crew® 2: SteelBook® Gold Edition, including the Season Pass and a collectible SteelBook case.

All pre-orders, including the Motor Edition, come with the Legendary Motors Pack that nets players the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Touring Car 2016 and the Harley-Davidson Iron 883TM 2017, according to the game’s official website.
