The Crew 2 is an open world racing game developed by Ivory Tower and published by Ubisoft. The game was announced in May 2017 and officially revealed at E3 2017. It was scheduled to launch on March 16, 2018 but was delayed and instead released on June 26, 2018 for Gold Edition pre-order with world-wide availability on June 29, 2018.
The Crew 2 is first and foremost a racing game, the same as its predecessor. In this game, the player assumes the persona of an unknown racer whose goal it is to become a champion in the United States racing circuit. There is also the expected emphasis on multiplayer. In co-op, players can join different rally raid events together, as well as compete in street, boat, and plane races.
The Crew 2 features multiple vehicles including cars, but expands into other types including planes, motorcycles, and boats. Each vehicle type has it's own physics and controls, making them unique in their gameplay. Players can switch between the vehicle types quickly and easily using the game's "Fast Fav" feature.
There are hub worlds and Motorsports Families, each with its own theme. These include street racing, off-road, pro racing, and freestyle.
In addition to Status progression, players are also able to upgrade their vehicles. All vehicles have a specific Performance Level and belong to a category (dictated by the discipline).
As such, they can buy several variations of the same vehicle model: for example, in its Street Race form, in its Touring form, and in its Rally Raid form (providing all those exist for the same model).
Players can then equip various types of parts to fine-tune the performances of vehicles, according to different parameters. Examples include the vehicle’s engine, transmission, exhaust, ECU, and many others.
There are four levels of part rarity: Common, Uncommon, Rare, and Epic. The rarer the parts, the more they will enhance the performance of the vehicle once equipped. A brand new rarity level – Legendary – will be coming in September with the Gator Rush update.
